We had reservation for half eight, we arrived on time to be told our table would be ready in a minute, we were still waiting fifteen minutes later until we approached staff about the delay and told they would check on table then seated, we got no apology for the delay. We were given table but no explanation of the... More

Really love this place especially their "Monks Rest" section with its dark wood and wine bottles on display. Food is really good and service is great too with a little bit of Irish banter thrown in!! Looking forward to our next visit already.

The food was delicious and served promptly and hot. No complaints there. However there is a blanket 10% service charge added to the total bill, without any discretion as to choice. I wonder about whether the staff see any direct material element of this charge, even under PAYE. If they are not, then the menu is purposely misrepresenting the actual... More

We came late on a Saturday night and they managed to fit us in with less than a 30 minute wait. The service was absolutely excellent and the food exquisite. The duck was on part with something you would get in Hong Kong and even though I had selected a 100 euro bottle of hermitage, the owner recommended a 35... More

Ate here recently in passing and we were lucky to be accomadated without a booking. made feel welcome and service was excellent. Food is very well presented and both of us enjoyed the experience. However...a personal bugbear of mine.. I noticed that a 10% service charge was to be applied on request for the bill. In modern times I seriously... More

Love the bistro here never fails to meet expectations - Julian, Sam & Co always deliver a friendly and helpful service. Just wish they made home deliveries of their wings would get up in the night for them!

We booked the bistro for my fathers birthday last weekend and it was fantastic. Food was great as always and they made such a fuss of him for his birthday which was great. Lovely touch of a fancy dessert plate and followed by a wonderful rendition of 'Happy Birthday'!! Well done and thanks for a great night.

Heartiest Congrats to Pat and Julian on 27 years of great food and great service! We have enjoyed many, many delicious meals during those 27 years and look forward to many more to come! That Sea Food Platter today was yummy!! We wish you continued success. Barbara and Sisters
