I didn't think it was possible for the outstanding food at number 16 to get better, but I was blown away by the delights of dinner on Saturday night. I had the special of smoked trout, avocado and tomato with an exquisite dill and sorrel dressing. My husband had delicious, perfectly cooked smoked haddock risotto with gremolata. For main course...

I have eaten frequently in Number 16 and have previously found it excellent value. Sadly this time it was distinctly patchy. We were a large table (11) and were restricted to a limited fixed price menu, not a problem in itself. Good points were that the main courses were all very well prepared and enjoyable. While portion size overall was... More

Received a voucher as a gift for here so eventually got round to using it in November! Amazing. Relaxed atmosphere where you didn't feel rushed and the food was amazing and beautifully presented. Sometimes when something arrives looking so good the taste doesn't live up to your expectations. Not the case here! I'm not a massive desserts person but in... More

Visited this restaurant on Saturday night with partner and friends. What a fantastic place. We loved everything we had. The ox tongue and sea trout starters were both superb. For main course, I had the brevette steak which was beautifully cooked with mushrooms and truffle. The steak was melt in the mouth and delicious. We also had the lamb which... More

I took my daughter here for an 18th birthday treat. I had spoken to the restaurant in advance to see if they could help make the evening special...which they most certainly did! From the moment we walked in and were greeted with Happy Birthday until the moment we left they couldn't have been more attentive. Great ambience, fantastic food (quirky,... More

Simply Outstanding! My wife and I have finally managed to get into the restaurant, on previous occasions we have be unable to get a table which testament to how good Number 16 really is. A wide range of tastes are catered for and I am sure you will not be disappointed, locally supplied meat, fish all bolstered with other ingredients... More

Another outstanding dinner at Number 16. It never ever disappoints. We decided tonight we must come more often. We may start inventing special occasions just to do so. Absolutely amazing food and fantastic service. The scallop starter was heavenly and the pork belly totally scrumptious. Great wines recommend to accompany each course too. Such a great team working here -... More

Dinner for four on a Saturday night was a total delight. Between us we had four different starters, three mains and two desserts: all of them were visually beautiful and tasted even better. Importantly, nothing was on the plate for effect and everything was there to enhance the dish. Do you want fun with a meal? Order the popsicle dessert.... More
