The Fat Duck, Bray, Berkshire 4 forks 3 Rosettes
Well worth legging it to the delightful village of Bray to sample Heston Blumenthal's daring creations in this the chef's choice. Top chefs have all made pilgrimages here and so should you. Knowledgeable and relaxed service exemplified by charming Manager Nigel who will take you through the breakthtakingly original dishes in intricate detail. But then the whole point of this restaurant is that the dishes are so complicated that no one in their right mind would ever attempt them at home. Sparkling new decor with lots of leather and wood just adds to the general air of perfection. Perfection which has duly been noticed as The Fat Duck was recently awarded with it's third Michelin Star. What's cooking? Crab biscuit with crystalised seaweed and oyster vinagrette, veal sweetbread roasted in hay and pollen with cockles a la plancha, parsnip puree and choux pointu.

Le Champignon Sauvage, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire
2forks 2 Rosettes
The unremarkable pub-like exterior of this intimate 28 seat restaurant does little to prepare the unsuspecting for the exceptional experience within. Dining room walls are lined with Fauvist paintings while tables bear vivid cover plates - both hint at the boldness and individuality of the chef's style. From an amuse bouche of vivid green and intensely herbal parsley coulis with parsley root froth - served alongside a light-as-air foie gras royale with egg yolk and brioche cream - to a pre-dessert of crème brulee encrusted with space dust, David Everitt-Matthias's food continually surprises, challenges and delights. Flavours are layered and contrasted in a dish of meltingly tender sweetbread, crusted with cocoa nibs, served with parsnip puree and liquorice jus, displaying the kitchen's technical abilities to pleasing effect. Hedgerow ingredients feature across the menu from a slow braised breast of veal stuffed with nettles and snails to a dessert of frozen prune and burdock root mousse with a wonderfully toasty almond ice cream. Service by Helen Everitt- Matthias is genuinely warm and welcoming and prices for food and drink are some of the most competitive for cooking at this level.

5 North St, Winchcombe, Gloucestershire2forks 1 Rosette
You don’t need much of an excuse to visit the Cotswolds, but here’s one anyway. Chef/proprietor Marcus Ashenford last impressed at Chavignol (Michelin star 1998) and this, his own restaurant (Michelin star 2006), likewise melds British ingredients with French technique, albeit more simply (and cheaply); Old Spot pork with crackling, fondant potato, stuffed cabbage and a cider jus is deliciously typical. Villagey charm comes courtesy of heavy wood beams and we're in complete agreement with the reader who says 'anyone who appreciates cooking and flavours in food could not fail to be impressed'.
