The set lunch here is incredibly good value. The choice is excellent and the food tastes (and looks) much better than your run of the mill establishment. You are left to your own devices, no fussing or hurrying you along. Probably too quiet for younger diners but perfect for a romantic lunch or a relaxed catch up with a friend.

We have dined and lunched there on several occasions and the restaurant never disappoints - food, drinks and service is always spot on. Alex is very attentive and friendly. We had our wedding breakfast there back in 2013 and it was perfect - food for over 20 people was prepared exactly how we wanted it, all came out in time... More

We went at lunchtime to take advantage of their set menu which is £14.95 for 2 courses or £17.95 for 3. The food was superb, beautifully presented and served by friendly staff. Attention to detail all round. Our waitress was a little eager with topping up the wine, which if I'd not had to go back to work wouldn't have... More

A beautifully presented restaurant with very pleasant staff. The starters were fine. I had pork belly as a main it was lukewarm fat. I sent it back and asked for it to be taken off the bill as my friends had finished their mains. The wine is overpriced , starting at £20 a bottle, nice but not exceptional. I felt... More

First time visit at Bishops for my husband and myself. We went for a pre-theatre meal, sat at the bar for drinks with nibbles, ordered our meals. We were taken into the lovely restaurant and brought freshly baked bread rolls. We had starters, mains and deserts, a were cooked to perfection and delicious. The owner was very nice and friendly,...

We had a Saturday lunch with friends, we had the three course set menu which is very good value and quite filling. Great choices for all courses so you are sure to find something you will like. Excellent service, the restaurant is quite small and was full when we visited so I would recommend booking in advance.

We went to Bishops to celebrate my birthday and had mixed feelings about our meals. Both our fish starters were good and my steak was cooked well but not particularly tender or flavoursome. My husband had venison which was disappointing as it was quite tough. Our chocolate dessert did not live up to expectations and was well below the standard... More
