A Very Special Experience

Just returned from a meal at Paul's at No. 6. The whole experience was superb from a warm welcome from the staff to the final farewell. A great menu and the food was excellent - one of the best meals I have had. It was great to see such a hardworking team who clearly enjoy working here. I highly... read more

We had a lunch here and having dined elsewhere went for the set lunch menu. Having made this decision we regretted it once the food arrived. This is an elegant dining establishment but the set menu didn't live up to our expectations. The pig cheek main served as a minestrone didn't really work, a couple of ribbons of pasta and... More

My husband and I visited on a Friday night, I was initially a bit disappointed that, even though booking a week in advance, the restaurant was so booked up that we could only find one slot available all week, which was a 9.30 slot (normally a bit late for us). However, this just shows to get a time/ day to... More

The bread that comes before your lunch is outstanding. I had beef cooked on the bone with duxelles of mushrooms and a pot of potato. All first class, My wife had sole - it was superb. For dessert we had the winning dish from Great British Menu. Different, innovative and terrific. Not cheap but a fantastic meal experience with great... More

We eat out a lot, it's our hobby, and I can say without doubt this is the best dining experience we've ever had. The food is exquisite, from the bread and amazing butter to the fabulous Fairground dessert. The service was great. Friendly, knowledgeable staff and a lively informal atmosphere. Really cool vibe enhanced by the great music. Meant to... More

We lunched at No6 and it was realy present. My wife chatted to Paul about the breaded oysters, which were delightful. A ver open a freindly place, Paul found it no problem to show my wife around the kitchen. But I have to say a very relaxing and tasty lunch

Excellent service from start to finish and as a party of 8 we appreciated the front room. The welsh lady who served us and her other colleagues were very attentive and interested in us but not obtrusive. Between us we tried most of the dishes on all courses and there was nothing left on any plates and everyone felt they... More

This is a lovely little restaurant with unbelievable customer service and attention to detail. We felt incredibly comfortable and looked after throughout. The food is well thought through and obviously has a huge amount of effort and time put into it, evidenced by the credit Michilin star. The only thing I was disappointed with was that Paul had left before... More
