Always lovely to eat here

Lovely welcome. The bread board is amazing. It is always a pleasure to come here. Very laid back but the food is so good - the lunch menu is so hard to choose from. The duck with oriental noodles was so good! My friends all enjoyed their choices as well. Would recommend this restaurant highly.

We treat ourseleves to the Chardonnay about half a dozen times a year. Cost is never an issue, the quality of service, food and atmosphere is priceless.

This is a great traditional restaurant with traditional service and really great food. They do a set menu deal on certain days which is really good value for the quality. Facilities really clean and staff very friendly.

WE visited this restaurant friday evening we had the fix menu, and it was very very good, presentation, quality were excellent value for money. Wines are not too expensives,however the only criticism I have is the not very friendly attitude of the staff, they could smile more... Will be back

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
