“Wow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013 via mobile

we just happened to be passing by and we decided to go in for lunch. My wife has a sensitive digestive system and they did a great job catering for her. i had the stuffed chicken...amazing, so much flavour. great music and a wonderful atmosphere. the service alone was outstanding. One of those diamonds.

“Trying to be fine dining”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

Booked based on reviews on trip advisor and other sites, this was a weekend away and we hoped it will be a nice meal considering we have been the night before at Melton's this set the bar high. So review below been constructive

Lacks any atmosphere feels really dull it's just a very big room with old carpets and bad lighting.
Food for the price you would expect more, starter Pigeon breast dry no seasoning main ok but nothing special.

Services not the most welcoming, we started by having dirty plates on the table and fairly sticky table so conclusion for almost £ 100 for 2 people with Wine this was not what we expected.

Don't go there expecting fine dinning if you get what I mean.

“Never disappointed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

Have been to 31,Castlegate several times over the past 6 years or so and eaten from both the set menu and the a la Carte. The food is wonderful and always beautifully presented. The quality is always of the highest standard.The service is excellent - the staff are all helpful and friendly. We can't recommend it highly enough.
