Independent and Excellent

I can't describe how much I love this place, it is my favourite restaurant that I have ever been to. The steak is to die for and the cleverness/uniqueness of their starters (and other dishes) is divine. Highly recommended from me

Love this place. Food has been great on the two occasions I have been here. Daily menu offers very nice choices and good variety. The wine selection is pretty good and affordable. Service staff are excellent and attentive to every need and detail. Meals are very interesting combinations of local English fare and in season vegetables. Chef makes interesting combinations...

We were warmly welcomed over the phone and by email when booking this reservation by Matt. We arrived at 7pm on Monday and this shortly followed by the restaurant filling up. Wonderful atmosphere, the service was amazing and the food was delicious. Highly recommended!

Went for dinner with some friends. Really welcoming Maitre D. Very good G&T. I had the tomato salad to start. Nicely presented fresh carefully assembled ingredients. Tiny bit under seasoned but much better than the other way round and easily corrected. The salmon and scotch eggs also very good I was told. Two of us had the beef fillet. Perfectly... More

I go to Myalacarte as often as possible as I always receive great quality food at a reasonable price (indeed excellent value if having the set menu) however I felt the need to review my meal from last Thursday due to an outstanding item - Rosewater & Rhubarb sorbet. This was incredible - I had a trio of homemade ice... More

Went to Myalacarte on Saturday 8th August. Same as last time we visited the service and food was excellent. My wife wanted the Lamb Shank, but they had just run out, so they said they would add some free extras, which was very good of them. I had the Scotch egg starter and my wife had the trout which again... More

Very nice restaurant with very pleasant staff. Food was very tasty, simple but good quality. Thought it was slightly expensive for what it is, but i wouldn't fault anything else!

A restaurant with good food, pleasant atmosphere and efficient "unstuffy" service. We ate from the daily menu which was very good value. The food was very tasty and beautifully presented, although the portions weren't huge. The tables are a little cramped but we were lucky to get a table in the window where there was more space. I like the... More

Every time I visit Myalacarte, I kick myself for not visiting more often! Visited with friends to celebrate a wedding anniversary. Food was outstanding - simply the best fillet of beef I've ever had. Asked for it to be cooked as rare as the chef was prepared to cook it, and it arrived perfectly cooked and very tender. I'm heading... More
