Visited on a Sunday and enjoyed the set menu. Service was excellent and the food was fabulous. Was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food on offer and would say that you will struggle to find better in the city and across the wider area. Sticky walnut will be the restaurant of choice!!!!

First visited when the restaurant was only about 6 weeks old - we were impressed then, but it has got better. The quality of the food was extremely good and really could not be faulted (perhaps a few more chips would be good !) Staff are very polite and service is well rehearsed. Not a big place, so atmosphere is... More

thought we were lucky to get a table at the last minute. the place was full on a Monday night. We thought we would not mind spending a bit more than usual as this place had fantastic reviews. However, now having read the negative reviews I agree with what has been said and would not visit again. Basically the food... More

You must go. Food is fantastic, lovely and tasty, really well presented and portion size decent. We had tried to get a table on a few occasions and it was always full or we had left it too late. We have now been on a couple of occasions, both were great. No complaints at all.

I run a restaurant not far from Sticky and for us it's an example of how it should be done. I recently took two of our team for lunch there. One of the team won't mind me saying that she hasn't had many opportunities to enjoy great food. In fact, she only tried pate for the first time on the... More

Having dined in Michelin star restaurants all over the world I would like to entirely contradict everything the previous reviewer said. Good food does not need an over powering atmosphere and unnecessary 'extras' in their decor. I have always very much enjoyed the sticky walnut and I completely understand and agree with their concept, that just like many other fine... More

Ignore the last bad review, he's an idiot who doesn't know what he's talking about. Sticky Walnut is a fantastic little bistro with lovely staff and stunningly simple food. It's not even that expensive either, for food of this quality cooked by a proper chef. As a food obsessive myself, I do know what I'm talking about, I eat out... More

Right, where to start. Suffice to say that I, GENUINELY, have only posted positive comments before on TA. So incensed by our visit to SW that I had to make the effort to hopefully save others! The fly circling our table and the tiny prison cell room with boring decor, might have been forgivable if the food was fantastic, but... More
