Visited on a Sunday, with relatives and had the Sunday dinner. I had the beef dinner. We all very much enjoyed the food, however, there wasn't enough! This is my third visit and I have found on each occasion that the portions are very small. Very enjoyable though. The service was excellent, the price was a little expensive for a Sunday dinner. I found the layout of the restaurant great, as there was plenty of room and we could have a good conversation without listening to the next table's conversations. I would recommend this restaurant, as the food is excellent, but don't expect to be full afterwards.

We purchased a voucher for a 3 course meal and champagne cocktails for 2 and decided to use this for our anniversary meal. We were immediately welcomed and seated and explained the menu and what was included in our voucher, there was a wide range of meals to chose from. Our champagne arrived immediately and our order was taken as soon as we were ready, we had the same waiter all night who was very friendly and professional. He asked whether we were there for an occasion and we explained it was our anniversary, as we were waiting for our deserts they brought us a complimentary plate of chocolates an strawberries wishing us a happy anniversary. The restaurant was quiet as it was a Monday evening so it was a relaxing atmosphere, the service we received was to the standard you would expect and the food was exceptional. Would definitely visit again and recommend to others.

Purchased the cocktail deal via Travelzoo. Bar was busy, but as soon as I mentioned our reservation we were attended to. All staff were polite and attentive. We had the same barman making our drinks who was a credit to the Podium. What a great start to a great evening with friends. I would certainly recommend and return.

After a busy meeting and looking for a quick bite to eat we went to Podium, for a quick dish the lamb was recommended and what a perfect recommendation, presentation and taste was to perfection with no fault.
Service was outstanding and will definitely return.
Loving to eat out I must advise Podium Menu was wonderful with great dishes on offer and only wish we were not tired so we could have stayed for a full 3 Course Meal
