“Great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2012

Great food although expensive for Somerset. The chef was unhappy with our request for the duck not to be rare but it came cooked to our liking. Excellent wine list with many available in half bottles. A great find in a provincial town.

“Fantastic food and nice venue”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2012

I have eaten here a couple of times and haven't been disappointed.

The drinks menu is varied as is the food.

Staff are efficient and knowledgable about the menu.

Food is always presented beautifully and is extremely tasty.

If I had to criticise I would say thay it can be lacking in atmosphere if it is quiet, but then where isn't.

Not cheap but would definitely recommend for a special occassion.

“Absolutely fantastic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2012

We went for a quiet romantic meal one weekday evening. The restaurant was busy and we were welcomed with a friendly smile.

Pros:
Superb food in a traditional French style
Excellent service - the staff were attentive without being intrusive
Great value food considering the quality
Great value wine; we ordered a sparkling (method traditional) at £21 for the bottle and it was better than a lot of Champagnes I've tried at 2 or 3 times the price.
Lovely atmosphere

Cons:
I want to go back every week now!

“Very enjoyable evening www.bestingarden.co.uk gives a silver award”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2012

Quite an intimate restaurant with a relaxed atmosphere. The food was very tasty and presented us with unique combinations and flavours. Perhaps a little more expensive than some other eateries in the city, but none the less proving good value for the whole experience. After our visit the www.bestingarden.co.uk team gave a silver award
