Death by dessert!

Have lived in the area a long time and was persuaded by my daughter to go to this restaurant. Absolutely blown away by the standard of food but the best part by far was the flowerpot cheesecake...simply to die for. Nicest dessert I have EVER had! Thank you the Art House!

We went for a meal to celebrate my husband's birthday and found the experience very enjoyable. Lovely surroundings with art work on the walls, nice atmosphere and good food with enough choice for everyone. The starters and mains were large and we could not finish everything so did not have a dessert. The way the food was served was interesting... More

We found this restaurant/bar with a view to having coffee and cake and ended up having an excellent late lunch. Excellent quality food, well presented and very tasty. No room for dessert as mains plenty big enough. Would certainly visit again if we are in the area.

We recently went for a meal which we can not fault it was lovely!! However the waitressing was very poor, we were seated on an impractical table and were not given cutlery or side plates until after our food arrived. The waitress wasn't very attentive and it took a long time for our plates to be cleared. Service was fast... More

We have been here twice, once as a couple and once with friends, and both times the food has been incredible! Good portion size for a reasonable price and so delicious! Service could be better but in no way did this detract from this stunning little restaurant or the fab food.

The staff were gathered in bar area chatting, one girl was very friendly but others bored - and talked about the customers, gave order of 2 sandwiches had a... More

I went here for a family members birthday. We were in the very back room, I must admit it was quite squished but we still enjoyed it. Starters were so delicious! Big portions as well, I had the potato skins and they were so gorgeous! Some of the starters were late but we didn't mind, we were just enjoying the... More

Food was absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. There was so much of it that even gluttons such and my partner and I struggled to finish. The mixed platter to start followed by two staggeringly well stacked burgers were very happily consumed. The cocktails were also quite delicious - we would definitely recommend the Raspberry Mojitos. Overall great food, lovely and... More
