Food wise even better than last time. At a slight advantage I had to try Phil Howard’s Great British Menu victory starter of mackerel which was the best soup, tartare and smoked versions of mackerel I have ever had in my life – worth the reassuringly obscene price of the tasting menu just to have that dish. The entire meal was again superb and there wasn’t a thing I didn’t like on the whole menu. Shame he had to leave so soon in the evening without being able to say hello to the diners, but a milestone meal.
