Describing The Butcher’s Social, Andy Lynes of The Times wrote: “Ask for a stall at this contemporary restaurant and bar, set in a red-brick Victorian boutique hotel in a leafy West Midlands village, and settle in for a long, lazy Sunday lunch of free-range pork loin roasted with crunchy onions and apple compote accompanied by potatoes roasted in goose fat and red wine jus.
“Make way for the decadent salty dark chocolate delight with white chocolate cream and miso ice cream.”
The top three restaurants on the list were The Quality Chop House in central London, The Hollist Arms in West Sussex and The Unruly Pig in Suffolk.
