“Good value set menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

Having been disappointed with Stein's cafe, I decided to give the Basement a try after reading positive reviews.
The evening set menu had an interesting selection of courses and was excellent value at £20.00 per head for 3 courses. The food was well presented and delicious. The staff/chef were chatty and informative about the dishes on offer.
I shall definitely return again.
My one criticism is that the lighting in the restaurant is a bit bright and lacks warmth.

“First rate!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

This was our first time at The Basement but it will certainly not be the last now we have found it! Excellently prepared & presented food. We had the 3 course Sunday lunch & the roast beef was cooked to perfection - not over cooked like many establishments.
