About the sixth time we've been here. Fantastic again. Mackerel starter and Ox cheek main were really, really good. I don't know if the mulled wine (came with the Christmas menu) was home made, but it was the best I've tasted. Easily the best value restaurant in the city.

We recently enjoyed a fabulous wedding celebration in No.16 which was made perfect by the team at No.16. From the support, advice and flexibility offered by Joel, to the exceptional food on the day, we could not have asked for anything more. Every one of our guests highly praised the food - consistently great, exemplary on our wedding day. The... More

I visited the restaurant for dinner on Wednesday, and can honestly say it is one of the best meals I've had. The food was outstanding and the staff couldn't do enough for us. Brilliant, will definitely be back!

I went here with my boyfriend for his belated birthday lunch. We'd been looking for somewhere new to try and when we saw the menu online we knew we had to try here. It was everything we were hoping it would be and more. It is a tiny restaurant but is cleverly decorated so that it feels cosy rather than... More

Great food, wine and service. Get there if you can. I don't wish to bore you by repeating what has been said most eloquently before.

The welcome is as warm as the ambiance, the atmosphere in the evening is buzzing, the tables are small but comfortably so - it just adds to the intimacy. Foodwise - beautifully presented, inventive, contemporary, fresh, and delicious. Slow-cooked ox cheek with braised red cabbage and purple sprouting broccoli must be the perfect dish for a cold winter night, but... More

Went to no. 16 for family birthday lunch on a sunny Sunday 9th November - there have been a lot of birthday meals over the years, this has been voted the best by the four who ate. Great food/service/wine. Desserts probably the weakest point but still a great meal.
