Anniversary Meal

Been here before and will go back again. Food was lovely, the staff were friendly and we had a wonderful meal. The amaretto sours is defiantly worth a try.

We got there before 6:30 on a Saturday and therefore had the option of choosing from the set menu for a slightly reduced price. Would recommend doing this as it was good value for money this way. Quick service, we arrived 20 mins early which wasn't a problem for them. Nice food. Quirky little.place. Will be going back. Couldn't fault... More

I had been led to expect an excellent meal at this restaurant but was slightly disappointed. The service was a bit slow. Although there were nine of us, we all had only a starter and a main course with nobody having a sweet or coffee, but just to do that took almost two hours. My pork was rather tough, possibly...

Visited with friends. The restuarant is great, really quirky and original. Sadly the food was awful. My dish of run down Jamacian vegetables in coconut sauce is possibly the worst meal I have ever had. The food arrived, in front of me was what looked like soggy veg swimming in milk with what was supposed to be a dumpling on... More

Party of six ,Sat evening 8pm. Had to book six weeks in advance to get time and date we wanted, as we have been here before we knew it would be worth the wait and where not disappointed. Not a massive menu but something for all of us to enjoy, especially as one of our party was vegetarian. My only... More

A large family celebration was easily catered for by the Wonky Table team. The small quaint and inviting restaurant, with customer focused staff and the food was some of the tastiest I have had ever eaten. We ate from the early bird dining menu. My starter of 'roasted pepper menemen, one pan egg & crust bread' and main of 'homemade... More

It's been a while since I have visited the Wonky Table, but found myself visiting twice this month with friends. It was even better than I remembered. Friendly service, great food, a very welcoming atmosphere & lovely drinks selection. Glad the wonky mushrooms are still on the menu - fantastic x
