$10 cocktails and $1 oysters during Happy Hour made for a very pleasant early evening outing. We also very much enjoyed 3 other sharing plates - scallops, pork and duck terrine. The pork was the best I think I have ever eaten, and the duck was delicious. Worst thing was the inadequate amount of heating on a very cold night... More

Food was so so. Some of the dishes were good, one was shocking (a virtually raw vegetarian dish), the others OK. The service was appalling. Our mains arrived after other customers had finished theirs, and we had arrived a good 10 minutes before them. The waitress was apologetic when she saw our food was slow to arrive despite our lack...

Hello and thank you for your review. On weekends when we have two sittings and 4 dining rooms booked, main meals cannot come out of the kitchen any faster than 30 minutes which is completely acceptable in any busy restaurant. With our main dishes we use no microwaves, the highest quality and locally sourced/many organic ingredients. Near your table we... More

Ate here on our last night. I ordered the Pork cutlet which was burnt dry and tasteless. My friend ordered the beef cheek which she said was okay. Potato side was expensive for soggy baked chats. Overall I was very disappointed as the environment is beautiful but food defiantly not value for the money.

Hello Tily, it is rare that we get negative feedback on our food as we use local, organic and ethically sourced produce and so much attention to detail occurs with every dish but I am so sorry that you feel disappointed. The pork is Wessex pork, free range and organic, the beef check locally sourced and slow cooked for 12... More

My husband and I went to Perfect Drop for the Happy Hour Cocktails and ended up staying for dinner because I fell in love with the decor of the place. It was so lovely and very cosy by the fire. Nice ambience, nice plates to share and good cocktails. Had a chat with the owners - lovely people. We will... More

We loved this place, incredible food, wine and service but above all the ambience and setting is gorgeous. Everywhere we looked were antiques and chandeliers... We started by the fire for pre dinner drinks and happy hour cocktails and then couldn't leave, loved the shareplates and the local organic produce. The slow cooked organic heirloom beetroots looked so good we... More

Had an unfortunate experience here. We ordered a bottle of Riesling but it was undrinkable, with a very soapy aftertaste. They didn't give me a chance to taste to it before they pored it. We made them aware of our concerns immediately but they refused to take the bottle back and made us pay for the full bottle even though... More

Hello and thank you for your feedback. You were a lovely table of 7 young ladies who had a private section of the restaurant and seemed to be enjoying the night, laughing, drinking several bottles and enjoying shareplates. After the lady who was drinking the wine complained, the others where drinking other varieties, our sommelier smelt and tried the wine.... More
