This is one of the only restaurants I have been back to again and again and never been disappointed. It’s certainly one of a very few that I have bothered to continue to do trip advisor reviews for, this is because I’m just so impressed....More

Excellent service and very nice lunch menu. Everything was what you would expect from a Michelin star restaurant. Nothing was too much trouble and the atmosphere was relaxing and not stuffy. We shall return.

Excellent food and service in relaxing environment. Hard to beat outside of France. Parking somewhat difficult as busy town.

Four of us dined here yesterday evening to celebrate a 50th birthday. We could not have made a better choice. This is one of those rare restaurants where I would like to have given a higher rating than Trip Advisor permits. The choice, the cooking,...More

After avoiding dining at the previous iteration for some years I'm so glad we decided to try The Clock House for our wedding anniversary lunch. Despite some (I think unfair) reviews, the service was impeccable, the food was delightful and the wine (recommended by the...More

We went on a Saturday night and had the degustation menu (so yes it was set) but I'm pretty sure there was an a la carte menu too. Maybe give them a call.

We were formerly known as Drake's, but our name changed in January 2017. Everything else remains the same. Our food is flavour focused, with an emphasis on clarity and simplicity, using produce that is both local and regional. Quality of ingredients and their provenance is paramount to our head chef Fred Clapperton and we seek the best we can from within the UK. Awarded a Michelin star in the 2018 guide and 3AA Rosettes.
