I was treated to my birthday meal at 1861, we decided to go for the 7course taster menu, they asked if there was anything we didn't like. So it wouldn't be on the menu. We had the option of being told what we were eating or we could guess what it was and see if we were right.
The food is well cooked, inventive and tasty. The service is superb - we were really looked after.
As it was my birthday the table was decorated with little happy birthday confetti and I received a discount for my next meal.
The whole experience is warm, inviting and overall lovely and would recommend to anyone

“Excellent service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

Went here off an offer from Travelzoo and had the 7 course taster menu. Very good food and the service was second to none, every course was explained we were even asked before the meal started was there anything we didn't like. Excellent forethought on behalf of the owners. Nice ambiance and the heating was on keeping the dining room a pleasant place. Received a £20 off next meal voucher which we will be using before it runs out in September.

“Amazing service, lovely food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2013

The one thing you notice when you visit 1861 is the attention to detail. The whole experience is warm, inviting and overall lovely. The food is well cooked, inventive and tasty. The service is superb - we were really looked after! I like the personal touches such as the lounge area you reside in before you take your seats, then go back to after the meal to relax with coffee. The coffee is gorgeous and the taster chocolate board add a nice touch. We had the 7 course taster menu which was lovely. I would recommend you try this place.

Menu selection good, very rich ingredients and flavours, well presented. Lovely building and stylishly furnished. The toilets let it down.

“Worth a visit”

We visited 1861 to celebrate my husbands 50th Birthday. The service and food were excellent. We live locally but have never visited this particular restaurant but I must say we will definitely return to 1861.
