Me and my partner went here for a birthday celebration. When we walked into the bistro is was light up by candles which made it a relaxing setting for the evening. With it being my partners birthday they gave us a glass of prosecco each on the house to celebrate! The bistro doesn't have individual menus, but two huge blackboards... More

A good test of a restaurant is consistency with over time. That is, does the restaurant's excellence at launch continue over time? Kendells meets and surpasses this criterion. This is my fifth visit in the last three years and the excellence that I experienced the first time I ate dinner there continues today. The food is inspired partially by traditional... More

Posh restaurant, perfect for special events. You will need to book the table in advance and pay the reservation fee. Fantastic food with great atmosphere. I have tryied escargot for the first time in my life and I was very impressed with the flavour. And desert...deserts are heaven :)

Three of us went for the tea time special on a Friday. At £28 for three courses including a half bottle of wine each, it is great value for money. With choices on each course all good size portions, we had an excellent meal. Of particular mention was the duck and the prawn starters.

The staff were very professional and quite knowledgeable about food and drink The fixed price menu is worth considering. The a la carte is written in small print on a... More

Have been a few times and they've always kept to a high standard. Excellent meal and lovely staff. We asked for a recommendation of a nice wine and were given some options and a bit of background, the wine was so good I bought a bottle to take home with me. The food had a 'je ne sais quoi' :)...

We dined here for a special birthday and it was perfect. The menu contained so many delicious sounding dishes it was quite difficult to decide. Everything we selected was excellent and I'm sure we would have felt the same regardless of our choice. All courses for both of our meals were presented beautifully, tasted fabulous, and were served by delightful... More
