Critic wowed at Hélène Dorroze at the Connaught

French chef Hélène Darroze's restaurant at London's Connaught hotel has wowed Time Out's food critic Guy Dimond, who says that while prices are steep "you definitely get what you pay for".

Dimond praises both the food and the service at the Mayfair restaurant but laments the wine list which is "exorbitantly priced" and offers a "very limited" choice by the glass.

Meanwhile, Bloomberg's Richard Vines is impressed with Mark Hix's latest venture in Lyme Regis, Hix Oyster and Fish House.

"Try scuttling back to Axminster for the long train journey back to London and you may feel a little less in love with the world, but it is worth the trip," he says.
