This is the third time I have been to Deesons and i have never been disappointed! The waiter service is faultless, and restaurant itself is comfortable, inviting and not too posh, but you know you are eating somewhere nice! The food is all local, and is beautifully and interestingly presented. Strong flavours are used and the plates are filled with... More

Our meal was fantastic, we had such a lovely evening at Deesons; food and service both perfect. Cheese soufflé was incredible and the lamb was so tender and delicious. Each plate was composed of different well thought out components that made a really well rounded dish, the chefs are incredibly talented and use the locally sourced ingredients to their advantage....

I must say that I really enjoyed my trip to Deeson's. The menu is a little adventurous for my liking, but I'm glad I gave it a go. They have a wonderful children's menu too and I have to say that the service was impeccable. The chicken I ordered was delicious and I can't tell you what it was as... More

We returned to Deesons having eaten here on a previous trip. The food was very good again - fresh, locally sourced produce and the restaurant itself looks very attractive. The only draw back for us was the service which although very friendly, was a little inefficient - a second glass of wine which I requested midway through my meal arrived... More

My husband and I had a lovely anniversary lunch at this restaurant. The food was excellent and very different. They use where possible locally sourced foods and it shows. The staff are attentive and service is excellent. The toilets by which I am afraid I base all my restaurant experiences, are good, all in all a good place to go... More

I have eaten at Deeson's on several occasions and highly recommend it for any adult occasion. Great, traditionally English food; excellent, knowledgeable service; very pleasant environment - sometimes with enjoyable yet unintrusive live music; reasonable prices for high class cuisine.
