This was our 4th time dining here (twice just as a couple and twice with friends/family) and we have always thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The butternut squash & coconut soup was delicious, the husband had the special interpretation of scotch eggs and our steaks were cooked to perfection. Unable to resist the ginger creme brulee the meal was rounded of... More

Although not easy to spot as a little tucked away, this is a lovely place, follow the lanterns outside. We turned up last minute and fortunately they were able to fit us in. Quick and friendly service. Good menu. Good sized portions. Fantastic food, full compliments to the chef. We ate a little early (about6:30) amazing value for money. I... More

Our welcome to the restaurant was lacking, the menu was a little underwhelming, the restaurant was so overcrowded with tables that we could barely sit down and the waiter wasn't polite. But when we were told we couldn't have tap water because "it's not clean enough" we walked.

Found this lovely place tucked away with a lovely candle lit entrance. Didn't have a reservation but the staff still made a table for us even though it was busy. The food was great and there was a very good selection of wine. The staff were always polite and I would definitley come here again.

Visited here with my partner after reading the reviews and looking at the menu. We are not usually into visiting upper market places as they are quite pretentious and usually very over priced but thought we would try based on reviews and pics. We were very right the way the male member of staff looked at us on arrival as... More

Offered 2 tables, outside or in the reception area with a banging door . Even a member of staff said the boss doesn't want kids here . That is why there is a low rating, the food was ok had better and worse but not good enough to bring us back irrespective of the " child friendly " policy. I... More

Unusually we tried this restaurant without checking out the reviews first. As with some of the other reviews they managed to squeeze us in without a reservation but within minutes of us arriving every other table was filled. Certainly one to book. Each of the dishes was simply excellent. Of particular note were the Butternut squash soup and the fillet... More

We tried this restaurant on a busy night, not having had a reservation. Despite being very busy, the staff were more than happy to squeeze us in and worked hard to ensure we had a very enjoyable experience. The pork was very tasty and start to finish we were not disappointed and would very happily return.

Reservations recommended for this restaurant. We had just returned from a walk and were checking menus for dinner that evening. Postilion's menu looked good and they had reduced prices between 18:00 and 19:00. They were able to take us at 18:15 without reservations and turning people away by 18:45. The 3 course meal was delicious from cheese tart starters on... More
