Tonight was the first time that we tried Stone's taster menu and it was fabulous. It is almost impossible to say which of the eight courses was the best. The soup (not something we'd normally order) was something else, thick, but smooth and light. The cheese course was outstanding, a blue cheese panacotta and it worked really well with the... More

Called here with my daughter for lunch. We were met by very welcoming staff and once seating were made to feel very comfortable. The food was absolutely fabulous. Starter, mains and that full could not manage a pudding. In between the courses we were brought small portions of different breads and a sample of butters. What a fabulous dining experience... More
