5.0 out of 5 stars In Search Of A Good Nosh, 2 Oct. 2012
This review is from: The Good Food Guide 2013 (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
First published in 1951, 'The Good Food Guide' remains a consistent and
reliable compendium of what estimable eateries have to offer by way of a
decent meal throughout the highways and byways of Britain. Unaffected
by the epicurean conceits of Michelin, it casts its beady eye over a far
wider range of possibilities than its French Cousin and delivers well-written
and accessible reviews of restaurants to suit every taste and pocket lining.
From the high temples of gastronomy such as Heston Blumenthal's Fat Duck
at Bray (you'll have to dig deep for that one!) to the more humble but
nonetheless worthy Rick's Restaurant in Tooting the book is a goldmine of
information about what's hot and what's not in the culinary firmament.

The cooking score rating system, running from 1 to 10, comes up with some
big surprises here and there. Reputation would appear to be no guarantee
of quality under The GFG's beady scrutiny. Some big hitters rank lower than
one might imagine. The Wolsey in London's Mayfair, for example, clocks up
a meager 2, whilst Winchester's The Black Rat manages a healthy 5! It's
sometimes a tad difficult to discern what makes the difference between a
a 3 and a 4 or a 7 and an 8 but the descriptions are on the whole lucid.

It's good to have this annual review around to keep the industry on its toes!

Recommended.
