Crazy Bear's first outfit occupies a Tudor inn in an Oxfordshire village. As well as a modern British dining room, it boasts a Thai restaurant with crimson velvet beams, scatter cushions and tables that resemble brass platters balanced on boxes. There are forays beyond Thailand, for Peking duck rolls dipped in hoi sin, or grilled black cod in miso and sake, but the core of the repertoire is palate-tingling Thai classics, from pork satay to scallops and tiger prawns in red curry to steamed squid in a firestorm of chillies, lemongrass, lime leaves and coriander. Finish with homely treacle tart with milk ice cream.
