Had a meal here last night for my birthday. Beautiful building, extremely attentive staff. I had the fillet steak with pepper sauce which was cooked medium. It was so, so chewy it was actually exhaustive to eat. Perhaps I should have chosen rare or that is just how fillet steak is meant to be? Encrusted with peppercorns as well as... More

We attended the Daffodil on a Friday evening where they do a Friday Fizz which is a half price offer on champagne and sparkling wines. The front of house team were welcoming, and all members of staff were polite and efficient. There were no delays in ordering or the food coming out. Staff were efficient, regularly topping up our glasses.... More

I was taken ere for a birthday meal and was not to be disappointed. The atmosphere was superb and the food second to none. On a friday evening before 8pm all champagne is half price so this was a very nice way to begin the evening. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Shortly after visiting this restaurant I emailed to request that our details be removed from the mailing list as I had been disappointed by the surly reception immediately upon our arrival. A manager replied asking for further details which I duly gave, to which he responded by loftily stating that he would "investigate the matter and reply back (sic) formally".... More

Had a dinner there from tasting menu, food top notch, service great but long wait for table and food. Not bothered as staff made sure we are looked after and can't fault the meals.

First impressions here we're great, really loved the setting and thought to ourselves this had some real potential! We came here with friends for one of our birthdays. We had cocktails before we were seated and that's where the service stopped. Someone came over to offer us water, poured it and left one of us out and didn't leave the... More

Visited the Daffodil for lunch and was really disappointed with the food. starters, scallops and pork belly, priced at just over £12.00 , bland and tasteless and very small portion. If you charge this for a starter it should be delicious and memorable. Mains, hake with almond potatoes and cauliflower sauce, the fish was a little dry and not succulent,... More
