Invited to visit Chardonnay with relatives to celebrate their golden wedding Anniversary. Visited on a Wednesday lunch time, surprised how busy the restaurant was. Shown to a table with a wonderful selection of breads in a basket. Decided to go with the set menu, a really tasty canapé was offered at the table. The bread was superb especially the sunflower...

another visit to Chardonnay, this time on a Friday night to celebrate our anniversary. Although the reservation times are staggered, it was still very busy. Long wait between starter and main course, and again between dessert and coffee. The food was up to the usual excellent standard and plenty to select from on the a-la-carte. Quite expensive: over £100 for... More

My Husband took me to The Chardonnay for Valentines Day (I am a bit late reviewing!). We had the best meal I have had for a very long time! We had sparkling wine/champagne on arrival and nibbles while we chose our meal from a set menu, then we were taken through to our table ready for Chef's complimentary taster. The... More

The last time I had a meal at the Chardonnay must be 7/8 years ago; the décor doesn't seem to have changed much since then, which for me is a little bit old fashioned, but that is purely a personal perception. On arrival you are invited to sit in a small lounge and choose from menu whilst having a pre-dinner... More

My first visit to Chardonnay and have to say, really enjoyed my lunch! I was dining with three friends and we all opted for the set menu - a really fantastically priced luncheon, three courses for just over £15.00. Great choice of starters, main and dessert and the little extra's that just keep coming were lovely. On our table was... More

Having been and had a great experience a few years ago, I made another booking recently, making sure that the restaurant knew it was for a special occasion. Well the saying goes that 'One should never return' - and going on this occasion, it rings true! Ambiance was good, the welcome was quite warm, the food was great with the... More

I have dined at this restaurant on several occasions, across many years, and it remains consistently excellent. It is very suitable for special occasions with a good atmosphere, good food, attentive but unobtrusive service and reasonably priced wine. The restaurant's USP is the provision of a bread basket, breadboard and bread knife to cut your own choice of tasty breads.... More
