We came in last Sunday with our 2 children for the lunch offer of kids eat free. We have been to Deans several times over the years so had high expectations of the food, and we were not disappointed.

Well presented and good food. A bit pricey but worth it. It was a quiet night when we were in - atmosphere will improve when fuller. Traffic noise quite intrusive.

We visited Deans for my wife's birthday on Saturday. I booked for 8:00 and arrived at 7:55, We had to wait 20 mins to get a drink in the very comfortable bar area (some nibbles might have been nice and kept us busy). We ordered our food after the initial disappointment of being given an out of date menu from... More

Superb flavour and presentation. Good choice of dishes and excellent value in the pre-theatre menu. The surprise was the finesse demonstrated in the preparation of the dishes.

Absolutely fantastic. We were lost for words. Our expectations were high from the start but Chef Deans surpassed himself. Our starters, mains and desserts were excellent. The front of house staff were friendly and enthusiastic. Well worth a return visit.

I love Deans. The food, the service and the decor are all beautiful. The cocktail menu is small but really pleasant and the food menu is also short but each and every dish has something to offer. Staff attentive but not overbearing.

Having randomly selected this restaurant on the internet the night before when we fancied booking a lunch treat, we were more than pleasantly surprised that our son's selection was absolutely spot on.
