Very good when it was open and run by the two ladies. It changed hands and was good, but it has been closed for two years now.

Late but necessary review. The standard needs to improve...... If I had paid the normal prices I wouldn't be writing this review but it was in no way worth £70 per head just for the food. My starter was very small and not up to standard the main course also very sparse and not very hot. The pudding was like... More

Booked this only the day before and was in some doubt as I got no acknowledgement of my call. When I texted a query the next day I did get a confirmation and at the restaurant an apology that they had been unable to hear my number(?) . Anyway the food is what counts and it was delicious. Service a... More

I went for the first time with my boyfriend. We were greeted by the owner who was lovely. The food is delightful and well presented. I had the pork dish and it was the best meal I have had in a very long time. The owner was super friendly and made us feel like a guest in her home. I... More

Went with friends on a very Saturday busy night and had to wait a wee while for our (booked) table but not inordinately so. On a plus, we were greeted pretty much immediately and offered drinks to ease the delay. The menu was quite limited in choice and seemed to want to take good food and try too hard with... More

My fiancee and I visited the Isinglass on Saturday night as an engagement celebration with friends. We have been on many previous occasions and have never been disappointed ... until now! Upon our arrival we were given menus and when the waitress came over to take our orders she went straight to the food and didn't even offer us any... More

Recently visited here for my birthday. After a small mix up with some birthday balloons on the wrong table. We were eventually seated on a lovely table in the back of the restaurant. Wonderful Rioja 2008 wine about £16 per bottle. Starter of venison pastry, which was absolutely gorgeous. Cost about £7. My friends had mussels too which looked lovely.... More

We stumbled across Isinglass as we were passing through the area. The restaurant has achieved Michelin Guide status since 2010. On tasting the food it is easy to see why.I had risotto with deep fried courgette, it was divine, My husband had the traditional beef Sunday lunch, which he said put him in 'food heaven'. We had sticky toffee pudding... More
