This was my first visit to Smiths and I was really impressed. The restaurant is large and nicely decorated. Staff are very welcoming. The food, although mainly fish, is beautiful. Very fresh and nicely cooked. It is a little pricey but if you try the lunch time menu , that is very good value. A lovely experience.

An excellent menu with prices that reflect the quality and the service. Restaurant gets busy and once you have been you will appreciate why! Service was very attentive without being intrusive, the food was hot and portions on the large side. Will definitely be going back.

Car park not overly large if you are eating later this may be an issue.

The food was good quality but not really worthy of Michelin starred restaurant prices, mains being around £22-25 without veg . the Staff were attentive and efficient, but did seem over staffed for the number of covers, about twice the number than at Le Gavroche. Wine reasonably priced with a good range of wine available by the glass. The set meals seem very good value but not available Sunday lunchtime

I have eaten in Smiths for many years, and had tables of 2 up to 10 people.
The service is always excellent, all courses always are served at the same time and hot.
I have left the food to last, as the fish whether you have the Skate, Monkfish, Sole or Cod it is Market fresh and white, as good fish should be.
The Salmon is plentiful and tastes like salmon should, the Crab and Advcado cocktail is my favourite starter.
You will not be disappointed at SMITHS BRASSERIE with a warm welcome, good food, excellent service and a realistic price.
