FOT Final Scores - 2012

2012 - my first full year of restaurant reviewing - hugely enjoyable but a bit of a learning curve too. Prior to launching my blog earlier this year, I was tweeting brief snapshot reviews for all of the places where I ate. Moving forward, from April this year, I have been posting full reviews on the blog - it turns out this is even more enjoyable!

I'm a big fan of great local food and would prefer to rave about everywhere I eat. Unfortunately, however, that isn't always possible. 2012 was a year of culinary highs and lows, both in and out of Oxfordshire - with amazing plates of food like Magdalen Arms' Seven Hour Roasted Lamb and the Port Mahon's Steak Platter still running through my mind, there are a few meals I would gladly forget *shudder*.

With that in mind, I'm pleased to announce the final results for 2012, by highest score:
