4 of us had pre theatre dinner here on Friday the 11th of April. We had a really lovely night. The service, staff and food were fab. They get it so right, from the moment you enter to the moment you leave. We were all very happy with our food, cocktails, cheese board and wine were all delicious! We will... More

From start to finish it was an amazing meal and definitely my favourite Michelin star experience to date! The front of house team were friendly... More

Lunch in late march 2014, not been in a little while. Fabulous greeting as always by Martin, always leaves you seated with a smile on your face. Set lunch of black pudding with poached egg and sweetbreads, rump of beef with tongue and cheek, chocolate mousse dessert. Absolutely fantastic quality, food tasted and looked superb. Service is quietly efficient with... More

We have had dinner here twice and have to say that the food is superb. Cozy seating arrangement and love how they make the Irish coffee at your table (very tasty). Do try the home made chocolates and macaroons with your coffee (if you're not already bursting). Well worth it.

The only choice for us was Chapter One as I had never been before and by George is it fantastic. The genuine welcome from the Maitre'D was flawless knowing exactly the occasion... More

Significant birthdays are important occassions and often more so for the family members more so than the birthboy himself. I found myself in that predicament in Chapter One which we had reserved for a party of six between 5.45 to 7.45, following in a family tradition where we celebrate important family events and experience a highly rated and awarded restaurant...

Sometimes, it's best not to go to really great restaurants too often, in case the thrill of the culinary excellence wears off ..... not so in Chapter One! This time, we went to celebrate his birthday and from the moment we arrived to the moment we left for home, we were made to feel like we were the most welcome... More
