Visited end Nov, a few days ago. Food fabulous as usual, no problems. Could mention what we ate, but suffice it to say it was all tasty, fresh and cooked to perfection. Had a cocktail in the bar, with "smoked orange" in it, was lovely. However...given downstairs table for two, one of us facing the wall all evening..never good. Tables... More

This was our second visit to Eric's and it was absolutely excellent. This is a bistro, not a relaxed restaurant. It is quite noisy and busy and the tables are a bit close together. I had asked for a window table and got one! The wine list is excellent and I was very pleased to see one of my favourite... More

My husband has been keen for some time to go to this restaurant and as part of his birthday celebrations we treated ourselves. The welcome from staff as we arrived was lovely. The menu was great with a real variety of options. The wine was very reasonable priced and though the food was more than we usually spend it was... More

We have just returned home after a lovely Sunday Lunch. .It is the first time we have visited Eric's and it won't be the last. The restaurant was very busy , the service was excellent. We were served by a very efficient waitress called Emma, nothing was too much trouble. We had asparagus soup for starters, Bolster Moor Farm Beef... More

This has been on my (very extensive) list for a while so jumped on an opportunity for Friday lunch. Parking is a little bit of a nightmare so be warned you may have a bit of a walk. Loved the feel of the restaurant as soon as I walked in - tastefully decorated and just the right kind of ambience.... More

From the moment we opened the door and stepped in out of the cold evening air we felt warm and welcome. For the following hour or two everything was just slightly better than we'd been led to expect: perfect bread with oil and balsamic, gorgeous French Chablis, quick , courteous and discrete service and above all excellent food, imaginative, succulent...

From walking through the door, the atmosphere was lovely, staff very attentive and we wanted for nothing. Food and drink recommendations of the staff were lovely and 4 of us really enjoyed the whole experience. Particular shout outs to the amazing lamb dish which we all agreed was amazing! Not quite 5 stars as we had quite a long wait... More

Lovely staff helped make our occasion special - a last minute birthday cake, with candles, was no problem. The tempting seasonal menu using local produce provided plenty of choice for everyone and the early bird menu was super value for money. The food tasted amazing, with no need for extra seasoning. The only thing I didn't like was the weird... More

Hi David

We are also fans of Erics but the seating for us has also been an issue and spoilt our overall dining experience so much so that we haven't returned since August 2014.

The table you were seated at was actually the same as we allocated on our last visit and we mentioned in our previous review of Erics that this was badly located and also unsafe. We received a somewhat petulant response from Eric two months later only saying quote " That I might like to know that this table had been removed!" which we thought was rather a childish response and certainly very unprofessional. There was no reference at all to our disappointment and was sent as a private response so other readers of the reviews didn't have sight of it. In fact most criticism that Erics receives is usually responded by the same tantrum type reply rather than actually accepting the constructive criticism and dealing with it in a grown up and professional manner.

We are not surprised that you didn't bring your disappointment to the attention of staff because we are sure that their response and subsequent action would have been very positive but we would have been concerned that this would have been followed up by a tirade of anger from Eric. Without doubt the food here is good, the venue is lovely but it will take a lot to make us change our opinion that the customer is really that important to Eric, he is too far up his ivory tower to accept that others (and his customers at that), might have a correct and differing opinion to his.
