5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2014

We went last night for the first time to celebrate our wedding anniversary with family. Very impressed!! We will definitely be going back. The staff are so attentive and are focused on giving excellent service and making you feel very looked after and welcome. Everything about the meal was excellent. The food was gorgeous and beautifully presented. Drinks menu very reasonable too. We will be recommending the Engine Shed.

“Lovely meal with quality food and great service. ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2014 via mobile

I took my wife here to celebrate our wedding anniversary and was not disappointed. The restaurant is as name suggests a converted railway engine shed with modern kitchen facilities. The set menu cost £18.50 each and comprised of bread and olives followed by a starter, a sorbet then the main course followed by a good choice of deserts and finally coffee or tea to end the meal.
Service was excellent throughout and we definitely intend to return with friends next time.
