“Amazing and Cold”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

Amazing Food last Friday night at This Bright Field,

Work party went down a storm! the food was great the wine also very good! This could be one of the best X-mas partys for food we have ever had. I had an amazing beef dish while my partner had a shellfish dish.

Great Staff, GREAT food, BUT COLD ROOM. even with 40 of us it was cold! shame !

Will be back next year i hope with a bigger jacket

“Service Excellent, Food may not be to Everyone's Taste”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

A group of work colleagues - 5 of us - visited on Friday night and the feedback from all of us was slightly different. 3 loved all three course whilst 2 found the main course 'different', one enough to not eat any of it! One earlier review comments that this is not for fussy eaters and I would agree. Small, changed daily menu may also not help. Go on their website to get an idea. Wouldn't put anyone off but just be aware of this. Great service, the waitresses are attentive (and hot!!!!). Go if you want to be a little adventerous.

“Self-consciously hip”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

It's a by the numbers trendy modern English restaurant with rustic / industrial interior. On the cold night we were there the disadvantage of having glass for three of the walls became obvious as the room never really warmed up properly.

The selection of beers from the Meantime brewery was excellent though you pay £7 for not quite a pint. The two course fixed menu was £21 though the cost of the ingredients was very obviously a lot less. The crab starter was pleasant but not large. A ham hock pie had a lovely pastry but not very much of it and the slithers of ham, while delicious, were not numerous. An oddly flavoured bubble and squeak (I think) side dish didn't really compliment the pie. The squash and chickpea dish was judged as "nothing to write home about" and while the apple crumble was delicious it couldn't really compensate for the disappointment of what had proceeded it.

An overcharge on the bill was put right without fuss but as if offering a teabag in a cup isn't bad enough, charging £2 for it is just cheeky.

“Delicious food, lovely atmosphere”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

This is a lovely restaurant with a small menu of delicious things! If you're a fussy eater the limited menu may be difficult for you. There were 4 of us, 2 non meat eaters and we all had a fantastic meal.The staff were really friendly and the quality of food was superb. A lovely, relaxed atmosphere too.
