“Fantastic as always”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

We had a fantastic meal and service at our annual xmas lunch (7 of us). The food was fantastic, service excellent and they looked after us for over 6 hours! We'll be back - definitely one of the top 2 restaurants in Worcester.

We had a terrific good value meal. Catalan fish stew is simply superb. Staff were friendly, the background music was great. Have been before and will come again!

“Great atmosphere, friendly welcome, superb service and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2013

We had a really enjoyable experience from start to finish at Saffrons. Arriving slightly early we were welcomed into the bar area for a drink where the barman took the time to talk through the various different gins and make sure we got the ones we really wanted. Once seated at aout table the waiter took the time to get to know us a bit, talk through some of the options on the menu and even found the time to suggest some pubs to visit after our meal. The food was really very good; quite simple but very well executed. Throughout our visit the staff were attentive but not overly so and made us feel very welcome. Highly recommended. We will definitely go back next time we're in Worcester.

“Good but not great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

Saffrons is probably one of the best restaurants in Worcester but it's not great. Yes the steaks are cooked and presented well, and yes the service is exceptional but, the menu is a bit limited and now a bit stale, and the specials unimaginative and a bit dull.
Having held the No1 slot for many months perhaps it's now time for a change?

“Great Food & Good Selection”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2013

We had two nice starters; Oaked Salmon & the scallops w/chorizo. Both very tasty and decent portion sizes - good value. I had a wonderful Partridge from the specials board; very tasty & lovely gravy. My only criticism is that upon asking for red cabbage with my meal I was charged £2.50 for the pleasure! Although food. here is the on higher end of the price scale I did think this was a bit brutal. Mrs had the blade of beef that was awesome. Rich, hearty and well sized portion-wise. Possibly needed something fresh on the side (not sure what!). Wine selection is excellent & generally well priced. Overall very good & will def be back very soon.
