“Nice food, friendly welcome, good value”
Reviewed June 19, 2014

Ate here as part of a group of friends (9 people) on a Saturday night. Received a warm welcome on arrival and able to have a drink in the lounge area before going through to the main dining room to eat.

Menu had a fixed menu, which a good range of options, or an a la carte.

Good value - had drinks before dinner, two course and wine and worked out at about £30 a head.

The atmosphere was a little 'stuffy' but that may be that we arrived before most of the diners so it was a bit empty when we go there.

“New name, new management”
Reviewed June 6, 2014

Had been visiting this venue over several years firstly when it was Rossini's then Essence. It changed it's name and management about 3 months ago. The owner is very welcoming and helpful and his staff are very friendly. The food is superb. There are 2 menus to choose from....one is a set price menu - 2 courses for £15, 3 courses for 19.50 and there is an a la carte menu. The food is of the highest standard and the brioche bread and butter pudding is to die for! This restaurant is now back on our list to visit regularly. Everyone makes an effort here to dress well which makes it feel more special.

“Great Evening Had By All!”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

We booked a table for 14 for my Dad's 70th birthday based on reviews from trip advisor and everyone agreed it was a brilliant find!The restaurant was exactly what we were looking for , something a bit special that would not mind well behaved children and would not break the bank.The food was excellent, very well presented and very well cooked. The service could not be faulted and the staff were very pleasant and accommodating. Most of our party had the set menu which was £19.50 a head for three courses and there was enough on this for everyone to choose from. Our only disappointment is that we don't live near enough to go regularly!

“Excellent food”
Reviewed May 24, 2014 via mobile

We had dinner at Number 50 and it was very nice. The food was excellent - particularly the duck and the homemade deserts. The service was very friendly and efficient. The atmosphere of the restaurant is also very pleasant. The prices are OK for the quality. A good address.

“Would Recommend”
Reviewed May 23, 2014

We visited this restaurant on Wednesday for my sisters 50th Birthday and what an enjoyable experience we all had, As we are not from the area I found this "gem", on the internet. I contacted the owner Chris, who responded promptly. He was very helpful throughout the booking and arranging of the whole surprise event !! There was a party of 20 including children . Everyone commented on the choice of meals and the excellent presentation, believe me in my family its always hard to please everyone . All the meals were served together and were piping hot. the staff were friendly and helpful and ensured that everyone was satisfied with their meals throughout. Drinks were reasonably priced and overall an excellent experience.
