booked at last minute, like you do not planning ahead, for a birthday treat for Sue. Not at all disappointed. Service was great, every dish elegantly presented and a delight. Considering we treated ourselves to a Puligny Montrachet, we thought the bill entirely reasonable. Of course we could have gone to Macdonalds but then..... . We will return, and soon.... More

A little disappointed by Bishops. Guinea fowl starter was nice but duck main, with a rather one dimensional sauce, was a bit of a let-down. Desert tasted nice but presentation a bit of a road accident of melted ice cream and sauce! All-in-all £137 for 3 courses for three people and one bottle of wine didn't feel like robbery but... More

Fabulous find here, having tried to book somewhere in advance without success, glad we couldn't get in as this was so much nicer and classier. Service impeccable and food delicious, 1 pork belly, 1 duck, 1 pheasant and 1 veggie, 3 starters and 2 deserts - all clean plates. Not cheap but you get what you pay for and this... More

We ate here on a Friday evening on the recommendation of a good friend whose very particular where he eats. The service was excellent. We started with Champagne at the bar then were shown to out table. The meal was beautifully presented and very tasty indeed. The portion sizes were perfect. I'd recommend eating here. We hope to go again... More

We chose bishops based on the reputation and TA rating for a special family evening meal. Overall it was a good experience but felt it was rather expensive and not particularly special. Menu choice was good, food well presented and the service attentive. Wine was expensive. The fish (bream) particularly good and the duck enjoyed by those partaking. An improvement... More

5 of us returned again, and it’s been a while since last time but the 2nd visit was better than the 1st. Top class hosting and great food. We spent a long evening at Bishops, arrived at 7:30 and left after midnight and had great fun and great food while we were there. Well worth a visit and we will... More

Once again the perfect family lunch at this delightful restaurant. Needless to say, Alex was the ideal host, always attentive. My starter of sweet cured herring was ideal to sharpen the appetite, the duck was delicious, and a dessert of Bakewell tart with paper thin pastry exemplary. We were accompanied by our elder son, a self confessed North London foodie,... More

After visiting a last year and having a lovely time me and my wife decided to spend our 1st anniversary evening out here. Unfortunately the second time round it was nowhere near as good, as we arrived we were told there was no steak left on the menu, the main reason I picked Bishops was the steak main course, with...

My partner and I expected big things because of the reviews and were left a little disappointed. The scallop starter arrived with mash potato, something I have never seen before and hopefully will never have to taste again. My partners pigeon was chewy and the chestnuts were dry, very unusual flavour combos on both starters. I had the lamb as... More
