A group of six of us had a super fun evening here for a friend's 30th birthday party. The staff were very attentive throughout the evening, giving us a corner table which was ideal for our party. The ambient music was never intrusive, which was much appreciated and enabled us to chat easily throughout the evening. Our whole group agreed... More

Had the most wonderful wedding reception at the Merchant House this week. Gavin and Alex made sure everything was perfect for us and nothing was too much trouble. The food was outstanding, all the guests said it was the best food they'd ever eaten at a wedding (and we've been to loads of weddings in the last couple of years).... More

Nice food, helpful waiting staff but we had a horrible Chablis, as recommended to us by our waiter. It was his favourite apparently but it was pretty offensive and not worth the £25 we spent on it!
