I began exploring this book by trying to find restaurants I'd visited and duly found that most of the places I considered to be among the best I'd known were included. These are from a variety of different parts of the country and in all cases the reviews I read matched up with the experiences I'd had. On this basis, I feel happy to trust this guide in finding new places to eat. The reviews are concise and informative, with each entry also specifying the type of cuisine, the chef, approximate price per head and a rating out of 10. The scores may seem low, but the introductory pages make clear that even to get 1/10 is a very good achievement - this is certainly not a bad to good scale, but very good and above. My one reservation is that the book seems rather London-centric; yes, there are undoubtedly more restaurants in and around London than elsewhere, but, for comparison, 140 pages devoted to London and 8 to Greater Manchester seems a little imbalanced. That said, all areas of the country are covered, and this should prove an ideal guide for finding new places to eat wherever you are.
