“Some terrific food, service not so good - would return though”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

The starters weren't terribly impressive, or memorable (and far too small!), but the main courses were very good and the desserts outstanding.
Service was rather poor, with a number of issues. Though we were still charged 10% service naturally!
We had been before and we would certainly return, but would hope for better service.

(the service was friendly I would point out, just a series of errors.)

“Amazing”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

All I can say is I cannot eat wheat and my friend is a veggie, normally we are seen as the fussy ones of the group but this amazing restaurant was able to cater for us both with no issues. The lady who served us was lovely amazing service and couldn't do enough for us. Worth the money and would go again!!

“10/10 cannot fault this restaurant!”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

My husband and I visited this restaurant on a Monday evening without booking and were lucky to get in. Boy, were we in for a treat ! Really delicious meal, so much thought and attention to flavours and quality ingredients. Presentation lovely.
Service friendly and attentive, restaurant ambiance and lighting perfect. Can't wait to visit again.
To be honest this puts the usual 'chain' restaurants to shame-Food for Friends genuinely cares about their customers and the food they give them.
