That was memorable experience! The service was 5/5 and food 10/5! Couldn't let myself leave a crumb on my plate! Night menu is £49 for 3 course but it is completely worth it. I would highly recommend starter with salmon ( I was literally crying, it was that delicious). As a dessert we ordered a cheese plate (which was one... More

Excellent decor and the service was 5 star however it is fine dinning so expect to pay over the odds and that includes the wine list. That said the whole experience was very enjoyable and the food was of a high standard.

... The cheese board is truly amazing but it may spoil all cheese boards you have in future ... but it's well worth the risk. This restaurant is wonderful - food, decor, service, ambience and cheese !

Sounds like you love your cheese and came to the right place! It is indeed a ' proper' plate of cheese to spoil you with and I'm glad you revelled in it so much! More

Booked to go here for a special meal and wasn't disappointed. Lots of flair and interesting combinations. Had the full works including wine tasting menu which I would certainly recommend when visiting a restaurant of this calibre - It is after all their show piece. Not cheap, but of course it was an 'experience' we were going for rather than... More

It is nice when you just decide to 'go for it' and it sounds like we didn't let you down. I know it's a big thing to come to a restaurant like ours and knowing it's going to cost you a bit but we just hope that at the end of it, we have hopefully added a wee bit of... More

My wife & I had a great time on Saturday. All the staff were superb & nothing was too much trouble. Please pass on my thanks - we'll definitely be back & we'll tell all our pals too!

We ate and stayed at 21212 for my wife's birthday recently. It was a fantastic evening which lived up to the Michelin star billing. The bedroom (No.1) was massive and luxuriously decorated, with modern but tasteful furnishings. The bathroom was as big as the bedroom, and had a huge freestanding bath in the middle of the room. Double sinks and... More

I have been to this restaurant to celebrate an engagement. I loved the decor, relaxed atmosphere and everything else. Food was cooked to perfection and was melting in the mouth. We were served by young polish waiter, who was really professional and friendly. I would recommend this place to my friends, and hopefully will be able to make another visit... More

“Playful”was how one lunching friend described it. Hard, from the menu, to discern what was coming , a combination of elaborate descriptions and then - perhaps the chef’s little joke - “Chicken and mushy peas” which of course it was not. Most dishes arrived looking like an Ascot hat, which the girls loved. . Very, very ornamental, lots of colour... More

Thank you for your review and I'm glad that you seemed to enjoy the overall experience at 21212. As a note of interest, unlike other restaurants at our level, we do not take the option of putting cheaper ingredients/dishes on our lunch time menu. They are the same dishes that are on the the evening menu, the only difference being... More
