Having read all the rave reviews, we were a bit disappointed. The food was nice, but only average and there was nothing we ate that made our taste buds zing - it just lacked the Wow factor. The duck was nicely cooked but had little flavour and the apple & beetroot risotto was rather slimy. The portion of fish stew was rather on the small side and the fish was actually a bit dry. Maybe we were expecting too much, but it just didn't do it for us. We have had better meals for less money elsewhere.

This restaurant has never disappointed, although we only go every now and again due to our out-of-town location. Atmosphere is pitch-perfect - relaxed, romantic if you wish, funky (but not over-casual). Service is totally spot-on - neither too pushy nor standoffish, friendly and helpful. Food - something for absolutely everyone, from the main menu to the excellent and very imaginative specials board (I had pigeon breast starter followed by Catalan fish stew, which they do exceptionally well) and some superb desserts (including an aforementioned orange and cranberry cheese cake which rocks your sox off!). We've taken veggie friends there who also loved it, btw. Would have liked a fish special on the board (although I think there normally is one), please, but otherwise 100% perfect. Good wines, reasonable prices for excellent food. Best restaurant in Worcester for yonks.

Chose the restaurant for a farewell meal with family who are moving to China. I chose Saffrons from previous recommendations on this site. The food was exceptional, every course a feast and the Orange and Cranberry Cheesecake was the best pudding I have ever tasted. Thank you for a lovely experience.
