My wife and I chose this after seeing the Tripadvisor reviews. The wine list was pretty reasonable and the beer list was excellent. We chose crab to start followed by the lamb and the chicken risotto, both superbly cooked and then shared a superb cherry dessert. The staff were attentive and the service was well timed. The only blot on... More

Couldn't fault the service or the food. Good menu, friendly staff, great atmosphere with really good, well presented food. It got a bit on the warm side on a very hot night and there's no air conditioning. Overall we thought this was good value for money - fine dining and worth it.

Lovely food served by friendly staff. Most of the food is locally sourced and the menu is inventive and varied. At busy times you will need to book (always a good sign).

its the first time I have dined here, with a couple who have been there before. the menu looks really good, and as you expect, a sensible list of choices, eloquently described on the menu, to whet your appetite. But prices are relatively high for this level of cuisine, so with that, its fair that this comes with a higher... More

Great food and excellent service. We tried the tapas and they were superb. I highly recommend Deeson's. The menu is varied and interesting. I had a starter of pigeon with gooseberries and mushrooms. It was perfectly cooked. A wide range of wines and interesting beers makes Deeson's a great venue. We will return soon.

Four of us ate here last week and although I have lived in the area for over 45 years this was my first visit to what is a fairly new restaurant. The food is excellent but (unsurprisingly) fairly expensive. The decor is comfortable and there is plenty of space and air, too, when they open the doors to the street,... More
