A very good dinner

A very busy restaurant with lots of atmosphere helped by a resident pianist. My wife had a very moist (and very large!) trout and I had some very tasty cannelonni. Desserts also very good. Lovely setting by the Minster. Highly recommended

Had a super meal here with a group of friends who were singing at The Minster for the weekend. Food was lovingly prepared and presented & the Trout with parma ham was deliciously plump & moist. Nice atmosphere with pianist. Will definitely return when in Southwell next.

Faultless, perfection. Invited into a buzzing atmosphere, your seated and served with drinks without hesitation. The wine list has some classic favourites and nicely presented. The food is beyond the word exceptional and the taste you can tell is from well sourced ingredients. Management and Staff go over and beyond the word "service". This Restaurant is truly exceptional.

Went on one of my first dates here with my other half and we've been going back periodically ever since. If you get the correct seat in the restaurant you can over look beautiful Southwell Minster, and this sets the scene for a perfect meal. The food is cooked fresh to order and tastes amazing, plenty of choice and the... More

This was our first visit to this restaurant with friends who had been there on a couple of occasions before. There were 6 of us and the restaurant accepted our booking for 5pm rather than 5.30pm which is their usual opening time. The restaurant is in a beautiful setting in the centre of Southwell but tucked away in a little... More

Piano is set right in front of a minster, and complete with terrace. The food is amazing, accompanied by tunes from the grand piano in the main room. The staff was very knowledgeable and courteous.

Had a really super night, good atmosphere and great food. Plenty of choice and Piano was being played in the corner. Would highly recommend, and will certainly re visit (And I am not an Italian food fan normally - so they did very well!)
