Lovely meal, food was perfect and the service was impeccable. The cocktails are amazing, have never had an experience like it before, the bar staff (ash and tom) were very attentive and fascinating to watch as they made the drinks, they also explained exactly what was in each drink! Amazing! Will definitely be going back very soon.

Paid my first visit to The Northgate at the weekend and enjoyed a fantastic Sunday lunch. More the premium end of things when it came to pricing but this was reflected in the delicious food which was well presented and generous in its portions.
