Taster menu -amazing value

A cold Monday night out is not usually anything to get too excited about however we were so pleased we made the effort. The Grey Lady is a lovely, light, modern restaurant; our party of 5 were met with a warm welcome & nice smile from Louise. We all decided on the Taster Menu & since my husband... read more

We were introduced to this lovely place by friends and we loved it. The fixed price lunch was perfect, with a good choice, all beautifully cooked and presented. The building is interesting and very appealing, offering plenty of privacy in a lively atmosphere and the seating was comfortable. Lovely loos too! The staff took a lot of trouble to look... More

Just been for dinner. Food and surroundings good. Service rather random. Woman dressed in black seemed to be maitre d' sat chatting with two of the diners, other staff pleasant enough but rudderless. Had to request wine list, had to chase drinks order, drinks arrived half way through starter. Later ordered two liquer coffees, only one delivered with the explanation... More

Food and atmosphere absolutely brilliant. Staff very attentive without going OTT. Not that i am against children, but it was nice not to have them running around and screaming as you often find with some chains. People were dressed in smart clothes and even Evening Dress. An absolutely fantastic night. Relaxed but Guests were interactive. Not your usual restuarant prices... More

This restaurant is not local for me or I would visit more often. It's a halfway meeting point with friends and we've eaten here a few times in the last couple of years. I'm pleased to say that the food and service are still as excellent as ever. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and our meals were served... More

Had a lovely meal here last night. All three courses were exceptional. Staff were very friendly. Only thing they need to sort out are the main lights as they keep dimming then brightening. Was quite irritating. But apart from the we really enjoyed it and would recommend anybody looking for good food to go and visit The Grey Lady.
