Fodor's Review

Once the home of Victorian novelist William Makepeace Thackeray, this mid-17th-century tile-hung house is now an elegant restaurant known for creative French cuisine. The fixed-price, three-course menu changes daily but often lists such dishes as poached monkfish tail with celeriac fondant, or beef fillet with hay-roasted carrots. If you really want to splurge, try the seven-course "Menu Exceptionnel" (£78 per person, plus £55 per person for wine pairing, or £98 for pairing with the best wines in the house).
