The family visited this beautiful restaurant and we tried the tasting menu with matching wines. Magnificent combinations of food and wine. Really enjoyed it. Highly recommended for dinner. Service was attentive and they had a pianist playing in the background which added to the ambience. Nice touch

A quick lunch and some whisky. Food was delightful, staff very friendly. A great whiskey selection but unfortunately they dont offer "whiskey flights" which i think would be a great idea for those new to whiskey or wanting to expand your pallette. But overall it's a pretty nice place

Whilst the venue was fabulous and the staff were very helpful, the food for each course was really not great. The main item of each course was fairly bland and lacked taste which was just disappointing, especially for dishes that included flavoursome meats such as duck and pork. Even the side order of roasted carrots were bland and had no... More

This lovely restaurant was a great choice for a birthday celebration. It is well presented and comfortable, the staff were welcoming and professional, the service was good and the food was delicious. Their drinks list is excellent, especially for whiskey drinkers! There were 3 of us and we all had 3 courses, all very enjoyable. We have been here a... More

Recently visited Malt Dining with colleagues for lunch. Many of the group had been there previously and were high in their praise for everything about the venue. It is a great venue, with real charm, an amazing bar and many features that double as interesting conversation starters. However on this occasion that is about where the positives ended. We placed...

Travelling for work and wanted a good meal without the pretentiousness and I found the place. Friendly professional service, exciting and different menu with plenty of options for meat lovers to vegetarians. Excellent spirits list and a diverse concise wine list. My food was excellent and I don't normally fit in dessert but the rhubarb soufflé was fantastic. Pricing of... More

Lovely atmosphere with a pianist on the occasional night. Great wine, liquor list and the food is perfect. I've tried a number of different menu options and I'm still yet to be disappointed. Do try ✌

Great service, good food except for the sides - Brussels sprouts was leaves only, no sign of an actual sprout in sight and shoestring fries with aioli were not much better than fast food fries served with mayonnaise from a jar (certainly not aioli!!) - sides were disappointing to say the least. Wine list and spirits list is extensive and... More

Such a lovely dining experience, wonderful service, food was excellent. This ambient little fabulous place is full of spunk, great layout upstairs with a bar downstairs, beautiful place to enjoy lunch with friends and family in the restaurant and they also have a private dining room in the basement which can seat 20pax. Thoroughly enjoyed our experience here today.
