This is a really stylish restaurant. Not so much in appearance or location but in food presentation. Beautiful crockery and superb presentation certainly complimented the well cooked and hot food. It makes a change from the lukewarm offerings in so many other places. If I had to criticise anything I would say that the jars containing the liver pate are... More

We always enjoy our visits to this restaurant. The food is tasty, well cooked and imaginatively presented. Service is friendly and efficient. Quite a popular place, you may need to book. I've never been in the evening only for lunch so can't comment on what it's like for an evening out but certainly a very nice lunch venue

After years of driving past The Playwright we wanted to find somewhere new. And what a great find. We had a great evening. The food was faultless. The singer was great. If I had to find fault the service was a little slow but everyone serving us was lovely. Can't wait to go back.

Having been critical of the service here in the past, I was delighted to see both the service and food were back to top notch again. We arrived and the place was very busy with big tables of 8 & 12 but still we were treated as if we were the only diners in the restaurant. We had the chicken... More

I think the atmosphere when their is a good singer coupled with great food makes this a really good night out. Try the rack of lamb here as it is always seriously delicious and book it for a night when there is a good singer. We've seen Peet Rothwell - the Micheal Bulble man here on a number of nights...

The play wright is a perfect restaurant for any occasion, whether your on holiday with family, friends or a couples holiday it has something for everyone.
