Our friends Mike & Gill have been recommending Embe for years - so we decided to give it a try, even though it meant a 95 mile round trip.

Brilliant place full of character and charm. Food was the real deal, nowhere else comes close and you'd struggle to find somewhere alike this side of london. Staff were so friendly and had a great chat with the owner after we'd eaten.

Nic is a great host. Super wine, friendly service and splendid food. So refreshing to have a restaurant in the City that dares to be different and not part of a chain.

We went as a table of six friends. This was a new eating experience for us and thoroughly enjoyable. The food was great and as it is all freshly cooked to order there is a wait for the food but this just gave us plenty of chance to catch up on each others news. We were given lovely warm bread...

After being seated, we waited over 20 mins to have our orders for drink to be taken. The food that we were looking forward to was dire! The Gambas & Mushroom consisted of 2 prawns in a... More
