My family took me to this excellent restaurant for a 'significant' birthday treat and it was indeed outstanding. The waiters were superbly attentive to all, young and old, and made us feel special, tolerating balloons, table confetti, lots of wrapping paper etc. The food - well - it's just brilliant! There's quite a 'mousse' theme so ideal for the older... More

We booked for my son's 18th birthday. Alimentum is classy, stylish and mostly slick. Interesting and unusual cocktails in the bar area. We chose from the a la carte menu. The presentation and flavour of the food really is beautiful. The amuse bouche were a delight. The reasons for not giving 5 stars is that our bottle of wine was... More

Visited with my daughter and her boyfriend. We had the fixed price, 3 course menu. The food was exquisite, and expertly presented by the waiters. The total bill including wine & (automatic) gratuity was £129, which for the standard of food was exceptional value. Will definitely visit again. (Parking opposite next to the Travel Inn).

If you are posh, on a diet or have won the lottery, this could be the place for you. However, as none of those three apply to us, this restaurant was not to our taste. The restaurant was of course pleasant to the eye, the waiters are courteous & even the toilets were top notch but we still went away... More

Six of us had a meal in mid-December, a team night out with other halves. The food and wine were very good, but the service was not quite in keeping. A bit casual and over relaxed. Given the choice locally, we would probably look elsewhere next time.

Out for a romantic evening with my partner.I've been going here since it first opened years ago and agree with others that it can be frustratingly hit and miss. We found the service very good and friendly, unlike some others. Clearly the same staff so either some training has happened or this place has kept its variable tendency. Food was... More
