Go for the chocolate, stay for the service

Very interesting place, cute décor, very nice early bird menu. We had to be finished early for an evening event and the 3 course menu was perfect size and had good offerings. Personally it was a bit too much "foam" for me but otherwise delicious. Dessert of chocolate torta was perfect!

I've eaten here quite a few times now and have never been disappointed with the quality of what's been served up to me. This is quite a quirky restaurant location with loads of character and individual charm so well worth a detour.

We dined in the Back Room which is quite small, it has an intimate atmosphere which was just right for a romantic dinner. The staff were attentive despite it being a busy Friday night, we were asked what gap we would like between courses (we had a seven course tasting menu), this was a nice touch as we have previously...

Second time visiting Restaurant FourtyOne. Fine dining doesn't get much better. Shouldn't be long before it has an M star. We really like the food and atmosphere here above other similar bracket restaurants in the area. Will definitely return for the next available special occasion!

This is a great place for a special occasion. We were celebrating a birthday and it was a real treat. The service is very good, the perfect mix of friendly and a little posh.

Strictly speaking this wasn't Restaurant FortyOne since we were private dining (in a ground floor room overlooking the Green) for a friends birthday but it was, I think, the same kitchen and undoubtedly excellent.
