Austell's is an absolute gem; we made a late booking but despite this the personal touch & attentive service were second to none. My wife was bowled over by the excellent choice of vegetarian dishes, now that is a compliment! As this was s special occasion (our 30th wedding anniversary) the complimentary champagne at the bar before our meal &... More

Went there with friends. My meal was good but my husbands was very disappointing. Out friends were not impressed with the food and the surroundings. Will be a while before we will return.

Great food. Big portions. Very tasty. Love the open kitchen. Writing the review while waiting for dessert as I usually say I will write one but never end up doing it. But this was great. You wouldn't think it from the outside of the restaurant but is is great food.

We had been recommended Austells and are so glad we finally made it here . The food and drink was superb from the bread served with our water down to the home made fudge with our coffees. I'm always wary of fine dining restaurants as often come away feeling hungry but was not to be here after my three courses.... More

Restaurant looks rather unassuming from the outside as its situated on a parade of shops. But step inside and you're welcomed with great service and treated to great food. Presentation and taste was definitely worthy of its 2 AA rosettes and of any fine dining restaurant. And being able to see the chef cook is great too. Overall a very... More

I have been here a couple time's before and have always come away impressed, but I have to say tonight's meal was exceptional! I was part of a party celebrating a 20th birthday and the staff couldn't have been anymore accomadating, providing a complementary drink for the birthday girl. The food was, as usual beyond my expectations. I had the... More

We had an amazing night out at Austell's. We live in London and eat out at the top restaurants all the time. This restaurant can challenge them all. Amazing menu, such a lovely diverse choice, fantastic pairing wines (love the way they match all their wines with food on the menu). Food was delicious - we walked away amazed at... More

Cannot recommend Austell's enough - the food was fantastic. Service was also very good and friendly and we didn't feel rushed. Well worth a visit.

We visited Austell's on a rather miserable evening weather wise. Not much to see or do so decided to go to the highest rated restaurant and we were not disappointed. The staff were brilliant and the food was delicious.
