Orwells near Henley-on-Thames is not only run by co-proprietors and co-chefs Ryan and Liam Simpson-Trotman, but they even refurbished it themselves and live together above the restaurant. Katie Pathiaki learns how the newlyweds are living the dream

Ryan says he would like to go to Devon to do sea fishing, but Liam is not too keen. "We went five years ago and I was chilled to the bone.
