Very pleasant evening with friends with some eating from good value set menu some a la carte from day's board. Friendly service and reasonably priced array of drinks. My own reason for not giving 5 stars was over salty beef brisket (though not as bad as elsewhere). Delicious deserts.

Very nice Sunday lunch. It was very quiet (we were the only customers for most of our visit) and the service was good without being over attentive. Starters were scallops and prawns, and mains were beef brisket and sea bass. Everything was very nice - well presented, nicely cooked and very tasty. Good wine list and an overall very pleasant experience - £60 all in for the food and a good bottle of wine.

It is obvious why this attractive restaurant is so popular. Super atmosphere, and friendly and helpful service too. We chose from the early fixed price menu which offered some imaginative food (as did the specials board and the full menu as well). Food was well presented, and very tasty and the portions were generous. The accompanying veg and potatoes were excellent. Really enjoyed our meal - we went with my sister who eats there from time to time, and of course we are very envious as we actually live in Norwich. No chance of us becoming regulars then!!
Should add that the meal was excellent value for money. Great restaurant.

It was my birthday and so my parents and a friend took me out for a meal. We went to Smiths. Being next to Eccles railway station parking can sometimes be an issue but we were able to park without problems as it was an early booking, 5pm, on a Saturday night. I would recommend making a reservation as it can get busy.

When we entered we were warmly welcomed before being shown to our table. Time was given for us to read the various menus and make out minds up. I had the crab fish cakes with chilli dip as the starter and duck leg for the main. Both were scrumptious and the main meals came with a side dish of seasonal veg.

Although I did not pay the prices of the food were reasonable looking at the menu. All in all a very enjoyable evening of good food and good company.
