We called at 6pm to make a booking for the same night (Saturday) for 2 ppl. The earliest we could get in was 9pm. We arrived on time and the restaurant was full (probably seats around 30 ppl). We were seated and ordered quickly. No changes to the menu are allowed, such as allergies or how you want your meat... More

I've eaten at my fair share of top restaurants but I can confidently say that this was the best meal I've ever had. I had a degustation with friends and the flavours of every dish we ate sparkled. Every little drop on the plate added to the overall experience of the serving and the matching wines were a real treat.... More

The food here is exceptional. Each item is carefully crafted for a culinary experience and I'm pleased the wait staff actively discourage any changes to the menu items - the menu is so carefully made that the dishes are supposed to be served exactly as is. The presentation of each dish is just wonderful - you could see the wait... More

This was our first trip to Ashcrofts under the new ownership and we were glad to see the high standards are still intact. The service was great (a wrong dessert arrived but they offered us a glass of champagne for the bother) the food amazing and the decor warm and comfortable. My favourite was the duck and my least favourite... More

Just had dinner here. The waitress is so nice and friendly. The food was great, desserts were yumm and the coffee very good indeed (important when you drink it black). Cool music, watched the sun set through the clouds.... We will def come back here so we can try more of the amazing menu.

This is the second time we have been to Ashcrofts and it was just as incredible as the first! The menu is seasonal so while it changes a little, the quality is consistent and the new flavors are exciting :) The service is amazing and the wait staff is very friendly and helpful. I can't say what I loved the... More

My daughter and I dined here on a Saturday night booking ahead. The food is always of a great standard. We shared the pork belly for an entrée and then had the duck breast for a main meal, both were delicious. We also shared the Chocolate dessert with popcorn ice cream - an exquisite combination of flavours. The service was... More

This is a restaurant unafraid to be true to cooking's basics. The food is well cooked, well sourced and survives on its own merits. On my visit to Australia many restaurants are trying to blend foods from too many traditions with the result being confusion and/or clashing flavours. Worse many restaurants are copying trends from last year in London -... More

Been here a few times with my partner, most recently on Jan 3rd. Each time enjoyed a new menu with interesting flavours and techniques. Definitely a cut above for the area. Staff are enthusiastic but inexperienced and a bit patchy with attention. Would be good to have a wider selection of wines by the glass but otherwise Ashcrofts is in... More

My wife and I had an absolutely beautiful meal at Ashcrofts this weekend for our wedding anniversary. The meals were beautiful and the service superb. The restaurant is not cheap but the meals are well worth the money and we were served quickly and the wait staff were polite and professional.
