Martin Burge's two-Michelin-starred Whatley Manor unmissable, says critic

Martin Burge's two-Michelin-starred Whatley Manor is the UK's most "unmissable restaurant", according to the Independent's food critic John Walsh.

Walsh says he enjoyed his "finest meal of the year" at the Wiltshire restaurant, adding: "Burge and his team go straight to the top of my list of Unmissable Restaurants, and I urge you to try them as soon as your personal economy allows."

Burge, who gained his second Michelin star this year, is one of the top chefs appearing at this year's Chef Conference on Monday 28 September at London's Jumeirah Carlton Tower hotel.

2009 Catey Special Award winners Nigel Haworth and Craig Bancroft's Ribble Valley's Inn's latest venture, the Bull at Broughton in North Yorkshire, is described as decent, cheerful, fun and good value, with terrific grub by the Guardian's food editor Matthew Fort.

The Sunday Times' AA Gill says Paul Kitching at 21212 in Edinburgh needs to "untangle his desire to impress from his talent to cook"; while the Daily Telegraph's Jasper Gerard feels totally satisfied after eating at Tyddyn Llan in Llandrillo.
