Can anyone recommend a nice place to take the Mrs for an anniversary meal?  We used to go to the pear tree in Purton before it went downhill and closed, and the Weighbridge which has always been a bit meh.

I am always baffled by the love that Miller and Carter gets, I have been twice and the food has been bang average both times.

this was allegedly at its peak though a fair few years ago.

very very variable from review around that time. the food was nice. the service could have learnt something off your average McDonald's employee.

The Weighbridge was an oddity - service, as normally recognised was awful.  Food was lovely.  I like taking my time and drinking more than I eat, and we had no problems calling for service, so it worked out ok.  I can see why others would have been put off though.  Now it is a chain though, no idea what it is like.

I went to a Miller & Carter in Glasgow, it was lovely.  Helped by the building it was in I think.

The Harrow got good reviews from someone I know - Little Bedwyn

thanks for the tip Sippo, will check it out next anniversary Smiley

@Rob, yeah it was slow, that was disappointing. it was the being ignored that really annoyed me. especially after explicitly strating I wanted to taste the micro brewery beers. still in the past now. Looking at recent TripAdvisor reviews it's got worse!

If you donít mind a drive the Gurkha Restaurant at the Lion and Fiddle in Hilperton is brilliant.
