"Gorgeous menus using organic and locally sourced produce."
And in August The Sunday Telegraphs
Jasper Gerard voted Alimentum one of his top 50 summer restaurants in the
UK after dining at the restaurant in July
"...This French classic is
rarely executed with much panache in England, but this is as delicious
as I've tasted... there is plenty of gastro promise here and I
heartily recommend it."
- Jasper Gerard, The Telegraph
Speaking about the influential
recognition the restaurant has achieved of late, owner John Hudgell
commented "This is just superb recognition of all that we are
striving to achieve at the restaurant. To be placed as a runner
up alongside Heston Blumenthal and his team has made everyone
here feel a little bit special - and rightly so! And Jasper Gerard
doesn't pull any punches either so we're obviously doing lots
of things right.
has been quite a month for us as we've also just received news
