My wife and I had 22 guests for a private lunch in The Scullery. The staff were extremely attentive, and the food was superb. All our friends loved it and commented on how wonderful their experience was.

We came here when staying locally we started with cocktails in the bar which were just great. We then progressed to the restaurant and I ordered the rabbit starter followed by the beef cheek and parsley risotto and they were both perfect. I had selected some very nice red wine to accompany and we were nit disappointed. I would love... More

I have always admired Angela Hartnett and I missed out on an opportunity to eat at Enoteca Pinchiorri whilst staying in Florence so when I discovered that Luke Holder had worked there I had to eat here. The food was amazing, the service was attentive but not intrusive and the restaurant itself was well appointed with a great ambience.

I booked this restaurant for dinner on a special occasion. We arrived about 30 minutes beforehand to have a quiet drink. The bar area was very crowded with several small children shouting and running around the tables. We managed to find seats but were disappointed that the table was covered in crumbs and spilled drinks. The table was wiped over... More

The restaurant didn't disappoint - the food was delicious and the staff attentive yet unobtrusive. The nibbles of Arancini were a great little start to the evening and the wine list is extensive with many affordable (and not so) bottles. The setting is lovely and if the weather is nice the terrace makes a nice spot for a pre dinner... More

Didn't think I would ever rave about beetroot but the starter with truffles was delicious. As was everything else we ate. My husband mentioned the pizzerata as being memorable. The burger I had via room service was the best I have had in a long career of burger eating. The wine list was varied and not overly complicated.
