The food at Sheesh is nice, however this is the only plus point of the restaurant. Sheesh is let down by its unfriendly and arrogant waiters, who display an attitude that indicates because they work in a trendy restaurant they are vastly superior and look down their nose at customers. I assume this is a ploy from the restaurant as... More

We visited for the first time last night for my husband's birthday, and we were hoping since it was a Wednesday, we could avoid a heavy crowd and have a nice romantic dinner... that was not the case. It seems that Sheesh feels the need to cram in as many people as possible meaning that it is very hot, loud,... More

I've been to Sheesh a couple of times now and haven't been disappointed yet. The range of different types of meat and other dishes mean everyone is well catered for. The decor is very smart within this former pub building. The quality is superb and while it is more expensive than others, the overall experience is well worth it. Save... More

If you only go to a restaurant to thank the staff for taking the time out of there busy day to serve you. If you really enjoy second rate service, and like feeling that the staff are doing you a favour by serving you undercooked nosebag. If you really do have only one brain cell. Congratulations, 'Sheesh' is the place... More

A regular at Sheesh but never again. Last 2 experiences have been ruined by appalling service, 27th June came for a family birthday, despite arranging for a candle to come out with desert waiter didn't bother, also refused to take feedback on the £9 a glass wine because 'he doesn't drink' couldn't park in car park. Last night upon arrival... More

found tables and chairs outside dirty and no waiter service for drinks. Expensive and overrated but food was OK. Service a bit dissappointing and too noisy as talking was more like shouting to each other. Toilets were dirty and not looked after. Will not go back there, although the setting was lovely and the house amazing.

Read some bad reviews so didn't really know what to expect on my visit last Friday evening with 5 girlfriends. We booked a 9pm table, went upstairs for a drink first as it wasn't ready. Live band was already playing which created a nice atmosphere. Started to chase up table when it got to 9.20 and we were finally seated... More

Probably the best coal cooked mixed grill I have had my wife had a mixed chicken and lamb which was perfect, the dish comes with salads, we had some side dishes on top, cocktails were brilliant and desserts all great. We got a chance to meet Dhillon the owner who was non stop in the kitchen and it just goes... More
