We had an amazing meal with amazing service a year ago, but things were not what they used to be. Eight family members booked a birthday celebration mid week meal at Chillingworth Road. We had called to increase numbers but the table was set for 6 and it was a battle to get the extra 2 settings added. The waitress... More

We were then shown through to the dinning room down the long hallway which opens to an exquisite dining room. The service was impeccable the whole night.... More

Had a beautiful dinner at chillingworth. Only down side was that they forgot the sauce on my husband steak (last time they forgot the sauce on his meal as well!), but he said it was delicious anyway. I had the pork belly which was just lovely. The chocolate torte for dessert is to die for! HIGHLY recommend

Five of us dined there on Wednesday evening and we could not fault the service or the meal despite the fact that the place was quite busy. For anyone wishing to celebrate a special occasion or to simply enjoy haute cuisine I highly recommend.

What an amazing restaurant. We booked the 6 course trust the chef option and worked our way through what must be one of the best meals we have had. The first course was smoked eel in artichoke soup (not something my husband would normally eat but he loved it as did I) This was followed by salmon with pickled walnuts... More

Best savoury scones in the city and with a buy 4 get one free coffee deal card you can't go wrong! The place has a nice, classy, relaxed vibe and some good beats with great decor as well.
