Managed to get a table mid week and our first time visiting the new premises. Food was stunning as usual, good variety for all 3 courses. Had the warm potato salad, chicken and cheesecake. Would highly recommend.

The gnocchi starter and the three way cooked lamb main course were fresh and delicious while the dessert and petit fours (made on the premises as everything else is) were gems... More

I met up with a friend for lunch and she suggested Ascoughs. There were plenty of other people eating which gives you a clue as to how popular this place is and with good reason. Well priced with very tasty food the truffle potatoes with the slow cooked beef were fab. I couldn't resist a dessert and the treacle tart... More

The food was superb, the service equalled the food, the ambience was perfect and all together it was an amazing experience. We barely had time to eat due to all our... More

It was our first time at the new premises and we were a little wary because this venue has lacked atmosphere and been rather noisy under previous management. We needn't have worried. We were very comfortable at our table at street level. The food was excellent and very good value. Staff are friendly efficient and professional. The highlight of my... More

We found the food very good but more importantly the staff were very helpful and pleasant. Also for someone from London the prices were very reasonable both for food and wine.

An excellent meal in the new site, and at a very affordable price. Friendly service and good wine list add to the overall experience here. The food is excellent and would not be out of place in much more expensive establishments. Highly recommended
