In a sentence, pretentious and overpriced. Foof over elaborately served to you, I already knew what I had ordered and didn’t need a description for every course and if there are 8 at your table that can take a long time. Waitresses overbearing and a couple bulging out of their uniforms; they obviously didn’t eat there as the portions although... More

Ok, if you come here because you ve seen in the red bible that it has a star, the food will meet if not exceed your expectations. Now if like us you have been to a few michelin starred restaurants the service will not meet your expectations. From entering when two staff were greeting us but one more starring than... More

It was just under 2 months since our last visit but four of us this time, we all had the 7 course tasting menu and several of the dishes were the same as our last visit, its was nice to have the option to switch one of the main courses for pork belly which we did and loved it. I... More

After seeing the fantastic offer of a 7 course tasting menu for two for £75 on travel zoo me and my girlfriend jumped at the chance. The restaurant is very appealing on the eye, beautiful in fact. The front of house staff were super welcoming friendly and very helpful with the whole experience, offering specials and explaining exactly each element... More

Last time we had the 5 course tasting menu plus wine flight, this time we had the 7 course tasting menu and wine flight - what can you say, brilliantly executed and a truly superb evening. They deserve the star and continue to excel at serving up great, challenging dishes with combinations of taste/flavour, texture and presentation. The pea and... More

The service was superb and the food was out of this world. We had the seven course tasting menu with matching wines. Every dish was absolutely fantastic. Each matched wine was just right. JSW are fully deserving of a michelin star for this quality. I can't rate it highly enough.

Having previously visited this restaurant 2 years ago (with exceptional food and service), I thought it would be the perfect place for my husband and I to celebrate a special occasion. We were greeted and seated on a nice table....we waited, and waited some more....alas 15 minutes later were bought some menus and offered a drink! Opted for the 7... More

Had high expectations given that this restaurant has a Michelin star, however, the food was surpisingly average and it was a big let down. The service was well below average - the staff not only made many mistakes, they were very unattentive and service was extremely slow. We had to ask for things several times as they kept forgetting. Noticeably... More

Staff are friendly and knowledgeable about the food, wine and local area. Food quality was 100% wine choices with the courses was perfect! I'm not usually one to write a review but I just had to. I arrived very last minute and they treated me as if I had been here for a week already. Next time I'm In the... More

This is one of the few places in the area that offers food and service as good as top London restaurants. The menu changes with the seasons and is always imaginative. Service is excellent and this is the ideal place for a romantic evening or a family lunch
