Man v Food star Adam Richman has praised a Cookham eatery as "one of the greatest finds" after a weekend visit. 

The American television personality, famous for taking on gruelling food challenges across the USA in Man v Food, stopped off for a visit to the tiny village, just over the River Thames and the border in Berkshire. 

While Adam, 48, no longer gorges on burgers, chicken wings and pizza in front of the camera for entertainment purposes, he still knows a thing or two about good food. 

And he praised Cookham High Street's Bel and The Dragon as a "hidden gem". 

Sharing his find with his nearly 600,000 followers on Twitter, the TV star said: "Hidden gem alert! Unquestionably one of the greatest finds in my entire time exploring this Earth forkfirst!"

It wasn't just Bel and The Dragon he was impressed with though - the quaint village of Cookham also captured his attention. 

He added: "I walked through a breathtaking ancient churchyard, and arguably one of the prettiest little towns I have ever seen."

Bel and The Dragon is one of the oldest coaching inns in England, boasting 600 years of history. 

From the pictures Adam shared - in which he looks suitably pleased with his culinary choices - it seems like he chose Simon Rogan's Bocuse Shepherd's Pie for main, served with South Coast lamb cutlet, Wykham Park Farm asparagus, peas and broccoli, which is on the main menu for £19.50. 

He also made time to pose for photos with the team and enjoy a beer.
