This trip was an early birthday present for my partner... remember to book further in advance! The bar area upon entering was very nice and were made to feel valued from that point. Had the opportunity to relax with a drink before being taken through to the table. Once at the table the setting was very nice and relaxing. The... More

We came here for my husbands birthday, with my mother in law. Despite booking well in advance the table wasn't ready. The good was good but for a lunch the overall service took 3.5 hours!! Very happy to be leisurely but there isn't much of an atmosphere and listening to the staff tell others how lucky they are that they... More

Took our son for lunch for his 13th birthday. We eaten in a lot of places round the world and this has to be in the top 3. Could not fault the food, drink or service. Worth every penny, not cheap but excellent value for money

Everything from start to finish was top class, the crispy pigs head was extremely delicious. Service and ambiance where perfect. The only thing that we could fault was there where no cocktails on the drinks list in the bar, but when we asked for a champagne cocktail they where happy to assist!! We will definantly be returning soon.

Very attentive staff who know exactly how the dishes are prepared and what goes into them, the restaurant is always busy but the staff cope very well! The food is fantastic and I would recommend the Half Chicken, the waiting list to visit this restaurant is huge but well worth it.

To start you know when somewhere is good when it takes over 6 months to get a table reservation. When the day finally came we were not disappointed. The service was very professional and friendly. The food was beautifully presented and tasty. Do not be discouraged by the small portions as the food is rich in flavours and therefore filling... More

We had heard good things about this restaurent and it didn't disappoint. From start to finish an excellent experience. What we really liked is that although it was two stars it was quite relaxed, yet the service was still top notch and the food divine.

Tom Kerridge's food is outstanding. It is straightforward food but done exceptionally well. Perfect for those who love good food but without the stuffiness experienced in some fine dining restaurants. The pub decor is smart and comfortable, the service excellent. We were told in our confirmation email that we had a 2 hour slot but we never felt rushed even... More

We travelled a long way for the trip and on arrival were shown straight to a lovely room with lots of nice extra's . The service in the bar was good and then we went through for evening meal. If comparing to a pub it was obviously really good , I found the courgette and bone marrow starter was ok... More
