"But you won’t find this level of cooking, at these prices, anywhere in Britain. High-end cooking, in low-fi surroundings. Handling has talent to burn. Catch this Frog, before it turns, inevitably, into a prince." READ REVIEW

"Don't be fooled: The cooking is more serious than in many fancy restaurants, with a focus on flavor and an appreciation of aesthetics. Simply put, the food looks and tastes great. It's modern Michelin-level food, only the stars are in the kitchen not on the wall." READ REVIEW

"Star rating is hard. In a sense, it’s incredible value for so much mucking around. Adam Handling is clearly totally dedicated and highly skilled. But tasteful? No. Would I go back? No." READ REVIEW
