Find this excellent neighbourhood restaurant with rooms in a 15th century half-timbered house in the narrow High Street. John Wesley stayed here during his travels hence the name.
The kitchen has built up an excellent network of suppliers during the years and like all the best restaurants his menu's follow the seasons.
A summer example brought 'Terrine of Ham Hock & Chicken, Beetroot & Apple Chutney and Toasted Brioche'; Ravioli of Goats' Cheese & Basil with Tomato Water' and 'Juniper-Cured Salmon with Horseradish, Panacotta & Pea Shoots' among the starters.
'Pan-Fried John Dory with Summer Vegetables, Crushed Anya Potatoes & Samphire'; 'Roast Guinea Fowl, Warm Salad of French Beans, Pancetta & Hazelnuts' and 'Roast Cornish Lamb with a Fricassée of Broad Beans, Pea Purée, Lyonnaise Potatoes & Marjoram Jus' listed among the main courses.
Tempting desserts such as 'Warm Almond & Quince Sponge with Chantilly Cream'; 'Dark Chocolate and Cardamom Tart & Crème Fraîche' and 'Iced Mango Parfait with Pineapple & Mango Salad' might be too hard to resist while those with a more savoury tooth can enjoy their selection of artisan cheeses.
They also run a popular 'Bar & Grill' next door - which offers less elaborate, but excellent value, evening food.
