“Excellent Food - Great Atmoshpere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2012

My husband and I dined in this exceptional restaurant in December. We found the reception area to be warm and welcoming and a great way to have a drink while perusing the menu. The restaurant area is also warm and welcoming. The service was excellent and the quality of food outstanding. There is also an excellent wine list. With the friendly and professional staff, a laid back atmosphere and excellent value for money I would definitely recommend this restaurant. The previous reviewer obviously went to a different restaurant or chose the wrong dining partner.. Definitely not to be missed if in the area.

“No atmosphere, too long between courses”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2012

Langmans is unique to the area and certainly tries its best to deliver. The previous comments about the reception/arrival area are spot on; uncomfortable and weird. We had the tasting menu which was good quality and nicely presented. However the length of time between such small courses was interminable and we almost gave up waiting for the next morsel to arrive. The dining room is totally without atmosphere and the tables have been crammed in making private conversation very difficult. We left feeling disappointed, tired and hungry! and will not be returning.

“Superb food and service, but.........”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2011

I have not been to Langmans for too long, not because the cuisine was not magnificent, and service prompt, but because of having the same reservations as Jannerbloke, and mrseleven.
The folk who own and run the restaurant are good people, but sitting in the 'anti-chamber' is like waiting in my nan's lounge, and I am 70yrs old.
Advice on decor, and a lighter touch would return me to being a regular, I do hope this will not offend!

“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2011

We went to Langman's with a fairly large family group (9) and had a wonderful evening.

The welcome and service are very warm and personal - without being intrusive - whilst the food is superb. There is a set "tasting" menu (at £37.50), but we arranged a variation for a party member who doesn't eat red meat and this was no problem and was handled very positively.

The meal is a whole-evening experience. The doors are closed when all bookings have arrived and there is a great flow to the evening - from drinks and canapes through the various dishes to coffe/tea and taxis at around 11:30-midnight. We had two quite different and delicious fish courses before an incredibly tender fillet steak main, then choices from an extensive and interesting cheese menu before an excellent trio of desserts (and I normally don't like desserts very much). The wine list is varied and reasonably priced. You can get a "flight" of wines to match each of the courses for £35 per person - we made our own choices and Gail was very helpful in advising on each course so that we could match to the food and the tastes of the party.

We shall definitely be returning...

“Outstanding - international standard cuisine in the back of beyond”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2011

Michelin standard food in a friendly, intimate environment. Great welcome. The chef really knows his stuff. Menu was exquisite. We thought each course could not get better, but it totally exceeded expectations.

I have been fortunate enough to eat at some great restaurants with stars and this is right up there. Take the trouble to book in advance - you won't be disappointed if you are a real foody.
