We visited the Kitchin to celebrate my birthday choosing the classic tasting and wine menu.From the time we arrived to the time we left the service was excellent. Every course was superb and was described perfectly by the waiters. The information given by the Sommelier was extremely helpful. We had a perfect evening and would certainly return.

Loved this! Would probably only go once due to the cost but what a treat! It was an experience! The food was fantastic and I got to meet the main man himself. Loved it.

Me and my partner have just visited The Kitchin as a birthday treat today 30/7/14 and it did not disappoint! I had the vegetarian set menu with my partner having the normal set menu for lunch, the food itself was faultless and we did not expect all the little added extras provided that made it feel like very good value...

Had a taster menu of 7 courses all incredible especially the soufflé A lovely touch was the chef's welcome before the meal but also taking time out in the middle of service to get our feedback after the meal. We mentioned our birthdays and a signed card appeared as well.... More

We dined here to celebrate my husband's 70th birthday. From start to finish every attention to detail had been taken care of. Our food was well prepared, beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. My shellfish was brought to the table for my approval before it was freshly cooked. The staff were attentive but not intrusive. Overall an amazing experience. Thanks to... More
