We went to this lovely restaurant to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We got a warm welcome & a great table - romantic but still part of the buzz of the restaurant. The atmosphere was very pleasant & relaxed & all the staff seemed happy & friendly. The service was very attentive but not in any way intrusive - very professional.... More

We stayed two nights here and had dinner in the restaurant one night. After reading the reviews I was very excited about this restaurant. We were not disappointed, the food was excellent, the service was efficient but most of all warm, friendly and relaxed! The restaurant was busy and buzzy for a Thursday evening, the atmosphere was great and the... More

We were highly recommended to this restaurant both by our hotel, and the Trip Adviser reviews. Maybe because of that, we were a little disappointed. True, the food was good and generous, and the service excellent and really friendly. We both ate fish in which they specialise but were a little disappointed at the lack of choice other than seafood.... More

After having a later than usual lunch, we skipped the appetizers and went straight for 3 entrees: the grilled sea bass, monk fish and duck each of which were tasty, enjoyable and nicely presented. We ordered a fairly priced Rueda that went well with both fish dishes. The service was fine up to the point where the waitress apparently forgot... More

We celebrated a BIG birthday here, and the staff made it loads of fun by bringing a dessert complete with candle and sparkler. The food was good to very good; we went primarily because of the association with Crean, but thoroughly enjoyed the evening.

I am not in a position to comment on the food in this establishment as it was not open when my partner and I visited there last Wednedsay, however I feel I should comment on another product on sale there, books! We wandered in to view the photographs of Tom Crean, Antarctic Explorer on display and I decided to purchase... More

Can't find the site to review accommodation so here goes, the rooms are above the restaurant. Restaurant is obviously very good. Stayed at the townhouse, overpriced, no breakfast included and none provided even at a price. Sent to Jam for a not great breakfast and the fact that the owners of both establishments are friends says enough. Room are supposed... More

Really enjoyed our dinner at Tom Crean Fish and Wine Restaurant. From the minute we walked in the door we were welcomed in a very friendly and hospitable manner and this continued throughout our evening. What a difference this makes. The food was delicious, lovely fresh lobster simply grilled. Very good seafood chowder and a rich and delicious vegetarian pasta... More

We had a delicious dinner in Tom Crean. Food was top quality and tasty, and all beautifully cooked. For example, the red cabbage side in the vegetables was just the right texture- not too crunchy, but not too soft. I am a coeliac and the waitress really paid attention to detail. Not only was there gluten free bread, but she... More
