Had a really lovely meal at Smiths. The food was excellent, especially the lobster! Had creme brûlée for dessert which was gorgeous. Staff are very efficient, but friendly. The wine (Pouilly Fume) was lovely and not over priced. Had the table for the whole evening and we weren't rushed.

Went again today with friends and, as on every previous visit, we all enjoyed the whole experience. Great food, friendly and top quality service and reasonable value for what they deliver. We love Smiths and will certainly keep going back.
