Was treated to a birthday lunch here from my daughter and her partner, lucky for me her partners father is the charming Alex, Bishop's proprietor. Lovely atmosphere and the food is just delicious. Can't wait to be invited back

Wonderful dinner with another couple last Saturday night. The food was excellent and we were really well looked after by Alex and his team in the cosy and relaxed atmosphere that is Bishop's. Looking forward to next time !

Regular readers of TripAdvisor must be tired of my frequent reviews of this splendid restaurant, but it really is our favourite! Lunch today, preceding a matinee of "Bridget Jones Baby" at a local cinema. A perfect day! Exceptional starters, my gougons of plaice were delicious, and I was offered a piece of my wife's Orange and Whiskey cured Salmon. Almost... More

Very disappointed as the portion sizes are severely undersized and do not come anywhere near to representing value for money. The owner should take a look at what Benedict's Restaurant offers for similar prices and up their game. I have never given a bad review before of any restaurant but felt compelled to do so now.

This is kept for special occasions as it's very classy. Lovely linen, sparkling glasses and cutlery makes for an almost unique atmosphere in restaurants these days. The staff, although young, are very pleasant and unpatronising to their customers. Book well in advance as even lunchtimes get very busy and are great value for two or three courses.

Our close friends booked Bishops for their Wedding Breakfast, it was a very small gathering, just twelve of us and their choice was fabulous. I have had lunch here before and was very impressed then and again everything about our experience was faultless. It made for a very special lunch in intimate surroundings with fabulous food and drinks. We were... More

My lady friend took me here in Friday 16th September to celebrate my new job. As usual, Alex was the perfect host!! More importantly, the food and wine and service was at its usually high standard!! We will be bringing our best Pallies here very soon to enjoy the delights of the place too!!

Absolutely adore Bishops. We had our wedding reception there 4 years ago and the food + service was second to none. Alex is a true gentleman and looks after all of his guests very well. We only return on special occasions ( such as wedding anniversary) only because this place is so special to us and we want keep it... More

This is a only a small venue so you really need to book. We couldn't fault the food it was lovely, every mouthful a real joy. The menu doesn't really prepare you for food this good. We would certainly recommend the food at this establishment. We thought the three course menu at £35 was excellent value. And I am now... More

Once again a wonderful evening meal in a well designed restaurant with excellent attentive service. The food was well prepared, beautiful presented and really tasty. The only complaint you can possibly have here is that the menu a little limited, but i really enjoyed it.
