Our 10 most recent restaurant reviews…

Bluegrass BBQ

Driven by a passion for meats cooked the American way, Catherine and Steve Brown decided to share their love of authentic American barbecue by opening a restaurant.

The Mole & Badger

The Mole was bewitched, entranced, fascinated," penned Kenneth Grahame in The Wind in the Willows. And that is exactly how I felt as I walked into the new Mole & Badger Restaurant Bar & Wine Emporium at Sanctum on the Green in Cookham Dean. It offers English countryside luxury, yet it also feels relaxed.

The Hind's Head

Sunday: a day for worship; a day for rest; and a day for a traditional British Sunday roast. And I can't think of a better place to go than to Heston Blumenthal's Michelin-starred restaurant the Hind's Head in Bray.

The Corn Stores

Sarah Rodi went to the revamped historic landmark, The Corn Stores in Reading, to check out their steak menu.

Giggling Squid Windsor

I had never been to a Giggling Squid restaurant before. I had walked past both the one in Marlow and the one in Windsor by the Theatre Royal many a time, but I'd never got round to venturing inside. And now, after visiting the Windsor restaurant, I can't believe I left it this long to try it.

Crab & Boar

We spent a relaxed evening at the Crab & Boar in Chieveley enjoying fine wine, food and company.

The Dundas Arms in Hungerford

It was a cold, dark winter's night and the snow was just starting to fall. Anticipation built as we drove down the winding country lanes. And when we came to the bridge overlooking the river and saw the welcoming glow of lights from inside The Dundas Arms, it warmed our hearts.

The Oxford Blue Windsor

First-class service and delicious, imaginative dishes make The Oxford Blue in Royal Windsor a real dining destination.

Tapas Revolution in Windsor

Heralded as the 'Antonio Banderas' of cooking by Gordon Ramsay, TV chef and author Omar Allibhoy is introducing a taste of authentic Spanish cooking to Windsor.

The Blackbird at Bagnor

The Blackbird at Bagnor has a nest we can all settle in, courtesy of the engaging patron.
