Wonderful food

We were celebrating my husband's special birthday with friends at the beginning of March. The food was excellent. The scallops were to die for, the duck duo was beautifully cooked and the pear and almond tart was so light it melted in the mouth. A lovely evening spent with good company and great... read more

I felt I had to write as I was a bit disappointed with our first visit ti the restaurant given that is highly rated. I have dined in all sorts of restaurant from your local pub to michelin starred restaurants. The restaurant is small and intimate which is lovely if you want a nice quiet lunch or dinner.

We eat here with a group of colleagues and had a good time. the staff is fast and very competent. The starters were great. The main courses where a bit less but still good. Desserts were just great again.

We found Restaurant Severn to be good but not amazing. The scallop start was bland, the fish main was lovely, and the cheese and biscuits were fine, nice cheese, the chutney wasn't to my taste. The service was good but the head waitress was rather chilly and unsmiling. We had a nice evening and probably would suggest it to friends.

Dear ACW1972 Thank you for your review & nice comments re aspects of your meal. I tend to agree scallops are a bit bland which is why I accompany them with Paddys sweet cured bacon & honey with cracked mustard dressing, in many restaurants you would pay a supplement for scallops also cheeseboard but I do not believe in supplements...

Excellent food, great service. We were given lovely canapés with our pre dinner drinks and fabulous home made chocolates with our coffee. All the food was beautifully cooked, well presented and good portions with side dishes of really nice vegetables.
