A small, intimate restaurant in the heart of the city run by a charming Italian. We had dinner with friends and all agreed that the food was superb. Great menu, food beautifully presented, service impeccable. Well worth the trip from the Midlands. We will return!

Although small this restaurant has lots to offer. It was our first visit but won't be our last. The staff are friendly and helpfull. The restaurant is tastefully decorated and the ambience is calm. The menu, although small has lots of tasty home cooked dishes on offer to choose from and we were told that the menu changes every 5... More

Enjoyed my first visit and lunch in November but felt disappointed on the 2nd visit. I chose Roasted fillet of Lowestoft hake with olive oil crushed potatoes, spinach velouté. It was ok but that was all. My dining partner had slow braised casserole of beef, mushrooms and bacon buttery mashed potato, sautéed Savoy cabbage. This she enjoyed. For dessert my... More

We joined friends for a meal pre christmas meal which was simply amazing. A drink in the bar before our meal with only the best champagne! Our meal was cooked to perfection and beautifully presented. Fillet of dorade with salsify and mussel broth exceeded my expectations. All four of us thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the ambience of the restaurant... More

I managed to book a table for dinner for two at Bishop's on 10th December at quite short notice and was not disappointed. The restaurant was fully booked, the ambience warm and friendly, the service good and the food quite simply superb. We both had a main course of venison which was cooked to perfection and was complemented by a... More

Managed to get a cancellation at this small and popular restaurant. We both had smoked eel for starters, one had turbot and the other dorade as mains. We shared a frangipani dessert. All the food was cooked to perfection and beautifully presented. Champagne, Sauvignon Touraine wine and Armagnac were all superb. Service was friendly and not intrusive. A most enjoyable... More

We dropped in on a whim although I have often walked past and thought I would like to eat here. The two waiting staff were very friendly, helpful and personable and the dining area was nicely laid out and made use of minimal Christmas decoration and maximum white linen - both good in my book. The food was excellent, starting... More
