Fantastic

I wanted to take my mum to somewhere special for lunch and had eaten at Nova before. It is a truly wonderful dining experience. The attention to detail is outstanding. The value for money is amazing, I would have paid double. A true gem, very very impressed.

Spectacular food and service, been twice now and the food was delicious! An absolute treat from start to finish with brilliant pre-appetisers, followed by a delightful duck liver parfait and an elegant rabbit pie for a main. Top quality.

I went for a meal tonight in the restaurant (Tuesday 16th June) with my sister to congratulate finishing my a level exams and for a Tuesday night in terms of restaurants there was a nice flowing ambiance and a pleasant amount of customers/ tables dining. We were served complimentary mini lamb burgers, where the meat was so soft and evenly... More

One of my favourite places to eat, never fails to disappoint. Visited with my husband on a Saturday night, restaurant was busy but not overcrowded. Food was amazing as usual, I had the crab starter which was presented beautifully and followed with the loin of lamb cooked to perfection medium rare, very tender. I finished with cheese and biscuits which... More

We decided to try Nova as we had seen the reviews on TripAdvisor. I am so glad we did, what a tremendous experience. From the moment we walked in to the end of the meal. The food was excellent, we had the Pork and Lamb. It was one of the finest cooked meals l have ever had. My partner had... More

We came here for a Thursday evening meal for two - and the set menu didn't disappoint. The food is absolutely beautiful, well presented and with lots of special touches. Price was £18 each for a 3 course meal - fantastic value for the quality of food that is on offer here. A small enough restaurant to keep the personal... More

Four of us ate here; 3 course Sunday Lunch at £20 a head. Canapes were little lamb burgers in mini burger buns for the meat-eaters and a goats cheese burger for the veggie. Totally unexpected and totally scrummy. Nice bowl of rustic bread and some butter, with the option of having olive oil and balsamic to dip it in...we chose... More
