An excellent night out, great service with a good choice of food on the menu and specials boards. We opted for starters and a main course but felt too full to choose from the dessert menu so finished with coffee instead. The staff were helpful and friendly, we arrived about 15 minutes before our table was booked but this was no problem and we were shown to our table and offered drinks and complimentary breads.
Overall a good night out, we will be back

We had a very pleasant evening with good food. Excellent customer service and they try and assist with special requirements. I had phone a week earlier to book a table and enquire about gluten free, so when we came to be seated bread which included gluten free was provided, this is the first time I have not had to remind a restaurant of the special requirements. And when the menu was brought to us it was quietly pointed out which meals contain gluten. When we asked for an additional chicken breast to go with a salad this was easily done and we did not think it was any trouble as the level of service is very good. The wine ranges from around £13 up to £30+, we opted for the chardonay at around £16 and it was very pleasant would recommend. We had thai style fishcakes (lovely) and smoked salmon (bit too big a portion) for starters followed by rib eye cooked medium exactly right with amazing chunky chips, pork loin from the special menu and ceasar salad with extra chicken followed by a cheese board - with drinks the meal came to £94.00 and we thought it was well worth it and will certainly visit again, a diamond of a find.

My girlfriend and I had a fantastic meal at Saffron's. The food and wine were excellent with quick and attentive service, without being overbearing. The atmosphere was very good and we thought it was excellent value for money. Would definitely go again and recommend it to others.

Now I just want to let everyone know, that I will write reviews on restaurants that sit in two categories (a) excellent or (b) shockingly bad.

Saffrons sits in category (a). We went as a party of 6 recently for a special occassion meal.

Firstly, if you want a restaurant where you can feel at complete ease in taking your time to enjoy your meal and savour time with your friends, this is the place for you. We started our meal at 7.00pm, normally enough time for a restaurant to feed you and then turn the covers to get ready for the next set of customers - you know, exactly like a set of revolving doors.

Secondly, the food.......wow. Good, hearty food that leaves you feeling incredibly satisfied inside. Good quality steaks without all the fatty substances that come with other restaurants buying cheap and selling high. This place does not compromise on the quality of its ingredients and if it does, you certainly won't notice. It is reasonbly priced and I would almost always pick to eat here over anywhere else in Worcester - my international business colleagues LOVED it to say the least.

Lastly, this place has the ambience and feel of a mediteranean restaurant - the music, lighting, service, food - you'll feel like you've gone to one of those 'secretly recommended' restaurants by your overseas high-flyers. Beautiful to say the least.

As a birthday treat for a friends birthday, we visited Saffrons Bistro for lunch whilst visiting Worcester for the day. After reading some excellent reviews on TripAdvisor, I must say we were slightly disappointed at the quality of the food and the somewhat dated (some may say rustic) decor.
Unfortunately, most of the plates we used or were served, had fingerprints and smears.
Two of us ordered the fish pie and both had little pools of water at the bottom, although flavoursome. The batter on the chicken goujons was soggy and undercooked, my friend left most of it. The green beans would have benefited with a knob of butter.. Whilst the staff were good, it seems a little more effort is required or maybe it was an off day?
Consequently, we were not going to risk further disappointment on desserts at nearly £6..!
