Sublime food

The food was amazing. We went mid week for lunch and it was heaving with customers - clearly has a great reputation. We'd never have found it but had been recommended it by friends. Great service and Great food - a lunch to remember. We will definitely go back.

Six friends ate at this restaurant and enjoyed the food. The wine list is interesting, not expensive to fit everyone's pocket. The menu was good, interesting and creative. The standard of presentation and quality of food was of a high standard. I make this an exceptional restaurant Eric needs to improve the quality of his front of house staff. Waiters... More

Erics restaurant was my sons choice, as he had heard off such great reviews, he needed to pre book as it's so busy!! I completely understand why!! We went There for a wonderful dinner with our family last bank holiday week. We all met in the bar area for a glass of wine, then we went upstairs to our table.... More

Our first visit..... Butternut squash mousse/Hoi sin pork, hake/steak, creme brûlée/brownie. Every course was fabulous to look at, yummy to eat with really interesting combinations which truly worked washed down with some sav blanc - heaven! We will return 😃

Visited on a Friday evening whilst the early bird menu was running (unaware at time of booking). Food was delicious and service was brilliant - will definitely be returning again soon.

I booked Eric's Restaurant (on recommendation from friends plus Tripadvisor reviews) for my wife's 60th birthday celebration - 5 adults plus 2 grandchildren on a Friday evening. I had already spoken by phone to Eric prior to the event to order canapés and champagne upon arrival and this was excellent. The meal itself was superb. I shan't describe the food... More

My boyfriend and I visited Erics for my birthday meal. We arrived on time and waited at the bar where we ordered a drink and then we were taken through to our table. I think the atmosphere is amazing! I love the details that are put into the restaurant the wallpaper, the paintings I love it! The waiters and waitresses... More

Is it because we are retired that we don't get the same service and the young and beautiful ! On arrival, left waiting at our table for 15 minutes without a drink , sat without any service ! We felt ignored! Catalogue of errors... Flat refusal to substitute gin shots for prosecco, tea pot arrived too late to enjoy with... More

I went here recently with a group of seven others having heard it recommended several time and was generally very disappointed. Yes the food was very good, but the whole experience as a let down. For the prices Erics charge this is not something I would expect. My main issues revolved around the speed of service, especially when it came... More

Visited Eric's last Saturday night with my wife and our best friends. The whole evening was fantastic and the food First Class. It was lovely to see Eric himself mingling with diners checking that everything was to their likeing and collecting feedback and even helping out delivering his masterpieces as well as clearing plates! I would wholeheartedly recommend this dining... More

Hi David

We are also fans of Erics but the seating for us has also been an issue and spoilt our overall dining experience so much so that we haven't returned since August 2014.

The table you were seated at was actually the same as we allocated on our last visit and we mentioned in our previous review of Erics that this was badly located and also unsafe. We received a somewhat petulant response from Eric two months later only saying quote " That I might like to know that this table had been removed!" which we thought was rather a childish response and certainly very unprofessional. There was no reference at all to our disappointment and was sent as a private response so other readers of the reviews didn't have sight of it. In fact most criticism that Erics receives is usually responded by the same tantrum type reply rather than actually accepting the constructive criticism and dealing with it in a grown up and professional manner.

We are not surprised that you didn't bring your disappointment to the attention of staff because we are sure that their response and subsequent action would have been very positive but we would have been concerned that this would have been followed up by a tirade of anger from Eric. Without doubt the food here is good, the venue is lovely but it will take a lot to make us change our opinion that the customer is really that important to Eric, he is too far up his ivory tower to accept that others (and his customers at that), might have a correct and differing opinion to his.
