Very impressed with the interesting combinations on the menu and the food was beautifully cooked and presented. I can honestly say the dishes were better than some I’ve been served in places with a Michelin star.

Staff were knowledgeable and friendly. Drinks menu was extensive and the mojito mocktail was delicious. We were so impressed and reassured by the understanding and confident approach to my nut allergy. Food was fantastic. Great to share unusual and tasty dishes. Thoroughly recommend Encore.

It is always advantageous to book your table in advance and we would recommend booking in for a table at weekend but if we have availability you would not be turned away.
