Somewhere between Putney and Barnes

Published: Tuesday 6th Dec 2011

This week's Sunday Times Magazine featured a fine review of Cranbrook's Michelin starred restaurant, Apicius. Bob Tyrer (A A Gill is away) turned down the opportunity to eat in unspecified restaurants in Bromley, Whitstable and Faversham opting instead to sample the delights of Cranbrook. He describes our lovely town as "a pretty village with metropolitan tastes" going so far as to suggest that we would sit more happily in South West London than deep in the Weald where we belong!

The restaurant scores highly for its inventive food and fabulous wine "I've never been so entranced by food" and our pretty town is commended for its "fine windmill, public school, high street crammed with small retailers, a muscular sandstone Church and a refreshing lack of 4x4s". It's always pleasing to read such super tributes to our lovely little town.
