Very good meal

Don't be put off by thinking you are walking into someone's house here. This restaurant has been open for years and it's reputation goes before it. The food is very good and the restaurant is always busy so booking is advisable

My wife and I have eaten at the Palmichael, in Burton Latimer, only once, however it was a memorable occasion, because the food was fresh and excellent, and the place had the special atmosphere of a longstanding, family-run restaurant of well above average quality. It was obvious that several of the other diners were 'regulars', and we could understand why... More

Wonderful food and very attentive service - rate very highly but more suited for adults as can be quite expensive if you take the children

This restaurant is a favourite of my family's as we've eaten here many times over the years. The restaurant area is a reasonable size and can hold quite a few people however I would recommend booking a table beforehand as it can get rather busy. The food has always been amazing in this restaurant! I usually go for a seafood... More
