We visited last Friday for lunch. I visited with two girlfriends and had a quick "one hour" lunch break lunch. It was perfection as always. Alex looked after us fabulously and the food was delicious - thank you to the chef (Freddie) - the food was above and beyond. We had Tuna Nicose salad for our main and it is... More

I booked here after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor, and must say I was mighty impressed. The food was excellent and just the right portion sizes, the service friendly and discrete and to top it off the place has a lovely atmosphere. The prices were reasonable compared to similar establishments, and it was definitely less stuffy than some. More... More

My husband took me to Bishops for lunch on Saturday. We had booked early (12.30 pm) and for a short while were the only people in the restaurant, however, this did not make us feel uncomfortable in any way. The lunchtime menu was 14.95 (I think) for 2 courses and 17.95 for 3, which given what we had to eat... More

The menu at first did not look exciting. However, all choices made resulted in good food. The atmosphere was pleasant: calm, attractive interior, friendly and efficient staff. This was not the first visit and it won't be the last.

We have walked past this unassuming little restaurant many, many times without giving it much though but as we were looking for somewhere different and new to try on a rarely experienced evening without the children, we decided to give it a whirl……. What can I say, from the moment we walked in the door we were treated like royalty,... More

This is not the first time I have visited Bishops and it certainly won't be the last. The staff are always very well mannered and welcoming. The restaurant is small, but this is by no means a complaint because it creates a wonderful, intimate dining experience. The food is flawless, every course pleases the palette, with a great selection of... More
