“Amazing time and time again!”
Reviewed October 3, 2013 via mobile

The candlesticks is the best kept secret of Stamford! The food is amazing and the service is brilliant!!
The owner is so friendly and welcoming.
My husband and I go.ever special occasion and are never disappointed!!
If you want to go for a high quality meal at a good price and great but rather unusual decor this is the place!! The main restaurant.is in the cellar and it is so quirky with great charm!! Love it!

“Restaurant service and food”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

Visited this inexpensive restaurant recently for first time in ten years and enjoyed excellent service, with great choice of good quality food. My sister and her husband who had never been previously loved the attention given by staff. The intimate ambience of the cellar eating area aptly lit by candlesticks provided an enjoyable experience. Nice to see the same family still running the place. I was welcomed and remembered as if I was a regular which i am not and I would recommend it to anyone visiting Stamford.

We came here for my boyfriends birthday and it was lovely. Not only was the food amazing but the atmosphere was good for a Thursday night.

“Very good food”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

Very good food and service. Only complaint is that the cellar restaurant (and the red wine) can be very cold in the winter.

“Very Eighties”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

Saturday night dinner for two.
Our host was very chatty and clearly enjoyed entertaining.
Drinks in the reception (feels like you're in you Grandmas front room) before dinner.
Service was great and we felt very welcome.
Food was well cooked but wouldn't describe it as high end.
Fish was delicious and worth trying. No prawns in my Prawn salad due to a 'mistake' in the kitchen.
Dinning area (basement) was very dark which made it feel romantic but decor was very eighties so felt like being in a bit of a time warp.
Would go again as the food was nice but mostly for the novelty value.
