We enjoyed the tasting menu but struggled with the quantity of courses.

The tiny dining room is lovely as are the waiting staff. Each course had distinct tastes starting with watercress and spinach soup, asparagus and bacon, duck mousse with a crunchy topping, salmon fish fingers (not entirely successful,a bit dry), beautifully cooked lamb rump with vegetables, a goats... read more

Foods ok and the service us the same for expensive food. We have eaten here several times mainly through invites by small parties who think think is the place to go. Well it's not. The bay tree is better and do is Harpurs.

Overall a very good dining experience, there are clearly some very talented people in the kitchen. Food comprised of an interesting and ambitious taster selection, some courses more to personal liking than others, but that's part of the fun! Few tiny things to note, quite a young team who possibly don't have full awareness of the things which can massively... More

We visited for the Spanish Tapas tasting evening on Friday 27th March. The first dish, Gazpacho had an overwhelming taste of vinegar, of which appeared to be the main component. The other dishes provided lacked flair, although acceptable did not warrant the high price charged. Not sure where the Scottish Scallops and crumbled black pudding fitted in with the theme!... More

Dear ns2K Thank you for aking the time to leave your review. Of course we are extremely disappointed to read that you felt underwhelmed with our tapas evening. Thankfully, judging by the emails and comments we recieved this isnt a view shared by the four other tables who dined with us that evening. To address your point regarding the scallop... More

We went to Mileburne for their 3.2.1 Thursday's offer where you get a bottle of wine and 3 course for 2 people for £25 a head. All the food was excellent, particularly the chicken main course...the most flavoursome chicken I've had in years. The wine was good...we had the chilean rose. The restaurant is small with 5 tables and the... More

The restaurant is cosy and nicely furnished. I was surprised at how small it was as there were only 5 tables, but this added to the charm of the place. The staff were attentive and fun and made us very welcome. We had the eight course taster menu which we all thought was lovely and excellent value. The stars of... More

The tasting menu was utterly superb, the service excellent and the overall atmosphere of the restaurant is a delight. Having paid pretty much twice as much for meals of similar quality, I can only agree with the other reviewers who have mentioned Michelin star standards. I will be visiting again very soon....

Have not been here since the days of Ruskins Restaurant, tried a few times to book but always full. The place is much the same inside a bit like dining in your own front room as upto 20 people max can be seated. My husband and I plus two teenage children enjoyed the 8 course taster menu.

We have been a couple of times and the food is really good in a cosy room and the wine is always good. What I don't get is in such a small place why I having to ask the waiting on staff for water or more wine. I just think they should notice basic things like that.
