ELVIS TRIBUTE NIGHT

This was a really amazing night. We have seen this tribute night here previously and never tire from watching this act. There was three sets with one of our food courses between each set. The food was up to 1885's usual high standards. We were served by Vicky and her team who as ever are friendly... read more

After an initial drink in the bar area we enjoyed the taster menu with added drinks per course. Nathan, Matthew, Vicky and staff were fantastic and showed that the art of customer service is indeed not dead!!! The food was outstanding and couldn't fault a thing. The taster menu encouraged you to try tastes but did not disappoint with a... More

I visited at the weekend to have the groupon tasting menu. The food was delicious, refined but comforting but really the atmosphere and surroundings let this place down. We added the wine flight which was a nice touch but felt the surroundings were not worth the £65+£50 that we paid. Overall a little disappointed with the experience but cannot fault... More

If you ever want to impress someone , but keep their feet on the ground, take them to 1885. The staff are friendly and so welcoming, so relaxed yet professional right down to the minutest detail. Have a drink, take as long as you want over the vast creative menu. We had a great meal, such brilliant service - a... More

Bought the groupon deal £65 for 2. Went with friends who hadn't bought the deal but the restaurant agreed to do the same deal for them. Booking a table was a little difficult with the restaurant only opening fri, sat and sun lunch, however that was the only blip. The food was delicious, beautifully presented and eac h course tasted... More

Been a while since we dined here, but continues to be excellent food, Prixe Menu offering good choice as well as a la Carte. Excellent young staff from a great welcome to efficient pleasant service. Lovely ambience and whilst in no rush to leave at the end of the evening we didn't feel pressured to. Must return sooner than later!

We went to their fish night a few years ago & it was really nice so thought we'd book again for this year. We were not impressed this time, 5 courses with a wine reception for £35 a head. An amuse bouche of Vichysoisse (a soup of creamed leeks, onions & potatoes) which apart from the chef sticking a lump... More
