We held my birthday celebrations at 1885 The Restaurant on a Saturday evening, having booked the Restaurant for our exclusive use for around 50 guests. The food was very, very good. We planned ahead with Nathan and took his recommendations. The fish platter looked stunning and tasted fabulous, the hot courses were excellent, lasagne, chicken curry and macaroni cheese. As...

The restaurant has a comfortable waiting area to have a pre drink. We decided on the Prix Fixe 3 courses for £24.95. The 3 courses were all excellent. The10 oz flat iron steak was superb, perfectly cooked. The only criticism is why serve macaroni cheese with heaps of broccoli and then give a side dish of vegetables with even more... More

We held a family and friends buffet lunch at 1885 The Restaurant to celebrate our Golden Wedding and our grandson`s christening. Everything was just perfect. The buffet was exactly what we wanted and everyone without exception was very complimentary about the food. Victoria was front of house with her staff and never once did we have to think about everything... More

I had previously overlooked this restaurant as i initially thought it would be expensive as it offers the 6 course taster menu. However, after seeing it advertised through the gourmet dining card, offering 25% off total bill, i thought this the ideal time to try, and booked a family meal for 4, to find that it had a wonderful menu...

Our first visit to the restaurant, but hopefully not our last. The setting is lovely, and the food and service are fantastic.Two of our party had pork chop which was tender, tasty and really well cooked, others had fish and said that was excellent. The service was first class and the bill very reasonable. Certainly worth a further visit.

Went last night for the tasting menu. They are still turning out fantastic dishes at great prices. Who'd have thought salmon and coconut would taste so good together?

Took my mother here for the Mothers Day roast deal on Sunday. The restaurant is lovely inside and nicely furnished. The staff were absolutely excellent, its hard to think of a time I've been so impressed. Food was delicious and just enough time was given between courses. Very reasonable for the high quality food we ate. We will definitely be... More

My gravlax starter came warm, which I have never come across before and I found it unpleasant. The steak that I and another party member went for was amazingly taste free and the vegetable portion was tiny. Maybe we were just unlucky but I had expected more from 1885's reputation. On the upside the wines are well priced.
