After numerous recommendations from my partners colleagues we decided to book into Shakesby's to see what all of the fuss was about. We were not disappointed. Freshly cooked food, divine wine, excellent service all around. We will be back.

Customer Service - excellent. Food - excellent. However, it is a fairly small establishment and on the occasion of our visit there was a rather large party. Like many groups there is always someone with a loud voice and an even bigger laugh!! We asked to be moved after we had had our starter, and there was a table a... More

Despite the restaurant being fully booked, we did not experience any delays. The food was delicious and the portion sizes were generous. We liked it so much we're going... More

We live local, and therefore had the opportunity to eat reasonably early, and take advantage of their 'early bird' offers. Excellent value for money, and I would recommend that special to anyone that can dine prior to the... More
