This is my third time dining at The Kitchin and I have fallen totally in love with the experience here, despite it being a seven hundred mile round trip from my home in the midlands Tom's passion for his larder, his cooking and his guests shine through in everything from the welcome from front of house (thanks Holly), the attention...

We booked this restaurant about 8 months in advance which is always necessary for The Kitchin. We got a taxi down from the Premier Inn and were warmly welcomed at the restaurant. We had a seat in their seating area at the front and were given the cocktail menu. The surroundings are excellent indeed and just the right amount of... More

I say with a heavy heart that I felt let down on recently visiting The Kitchin. My wife and I had long looked forward to our visit and made an excuse on a special occasion. We had the classic taster menu in the expectation that all the courses would excel. The start was strong with a delicious beetroot amuse bouche,... More

We booked to eat at The Kitchin to celebrate my husband's 65th birthday. The initial booking was made over the phone and I received an email to confirm the booking a few days before we were due to eat there. All very efficient and easy. We were pleased to see Tom himself in the kitchen and he had written a... More

Special celebration for a friend's birthday. Attention to detail. Lovely service attentive but unobtrusive. All the food was excellent. Not my first visit and won't be my last.

I treated my partner to lunch for his birthday and we would now love to go back for mine! We had the set three course menu and each course was beautiful. Some of the lovely food we had include: artichokes, partridge ravioli, lamb, chicken, lemon meringue and mint chocolate soufflé. All presented beautifully. The food was seasonal and for each... More

This place deserves it's awards, this was our first and certainly not our last visit, we were a little apprehensive at first giving the standard of this restaurant but we were given a warm welcome upon arrival, food was exceptional, the classic tasting menu delivered as promised, each dish was explained in detail from the friends and charming waiting staff,...

The staff were very helpful & welcoming. Nothing was too much bother for them. Food was excellent. Cooked to perfection. Hubby liked his partridge course the best. My elderberry & chocolate delice course was my favourite although the roe dinner was amazing too. Expensive yes but it's Michelin starred! You get amazing food, excellent service & fantastic atmosphere. You get... More
