I visited England with my family and we booked a table for 8. The food was good and fresh. I can say good food, good presentation, good service. We will be back.

I can't review the food or the ambiance. My daughters boyfriend had booked a meal for her 21st Birthday well in advance. They turned up last Saturday after hiring a special car to deliver them to the restaurant from their hotel - you're only 21 once. The place had a notice on the door - closed for refurbishment! Could someone... More

They provided an excellent lunch for my wedding. We were able to choose the menu (with good advice), meal was perfect, service was perfect. Thank you so much for making our day special.

Have visited Kitsons before, and revisited on Sat 6 July. The restaurant is dull and needs some lighting to improve the ambience. The main course was very acceptable, but the sweet was ordinary, small, and overpriced. The service throughout was very slow - we ordered coffee; some time later the waiter apologised for the delay and said the coffee would... More

Just got back from a wedding lunch for my brother-in-law's wedding. I cannot fault Kitsons, from the moment we set foot inside to when we left. The food was wonderful, the staff were so attentive and considerate, the atmosphere was lovely, with a pianist playing whilst we ate. Nothing was too much trouble for them, including preparing a special meal... More

A late reservation for a family meal for 6 was no problem on a Saturday night when we knew other places were fully booked so I was a little concerned as had never eaten here before. I should not have worried as we had a really excellent meal. It is moderately expensive but considering the standard of food and service,... More

Rather outdated in many ways, including the decor and menu choices. We had an excellent chateaubriand - perfectly cooked. The staff were really nice and the wine list excellent. One starter, razor clams, was indelible because they had not been cleaned and were full of grit. No apology, explanation or recompense was offered. The other starter, scallops, was overcooked and...

Visited this restaurant last month. The food was great, as was the service and the prices were fair for the quality of the food. It was also the best and probably largest rib eye steak I've ever had

The starters were expertly presented and tasty the main course was cooked to perfection and the shared sweet was a perfect way to finish, the wine selection was truly impressive and at a price range to suit all pockets. We will... More
