“Birthday celebration”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

We booked a table to celebrate my husbands Birthday and were accompanied by his parents. The restaurant is an older building on West Borough, if you are lucky you can park in the road opposite but there is plenty of nearby parking.

The decor and lighting is subtle, the tables are nicely presented and the whole place has a pleasant atmosphere.

We had a lovely evening, the staff were warm and friendly and we were shown to a pretty window table. My Mother in Law suffers with her back and found the style of chair a little uncomfortable, the staff were most obliging in arranging a different chair which was better suited.

We decided to forgo starters and head straight for mains and ordered the pork dish from the main menu which was interesting and varied, and chateubriand to share from the specials board. Both were excellent, the meat was tender, well seasoned, beautifully cooked, a perfect meal. Two of us had room for pudding and this was also top notch.

They have an interesting wine list and good selection of beers including some from local breweries.

Overall an excellent evening and would highly recommend the restaurant on all counts.

“Great place!”
Reviewed February 1, 2013 via mobile

My wife & I have been here twice in the last 3 weeks ( we keep trying to get to The Tickled Pig which has always been full ) so walked across to Number 9. The food & dining experience here on our last 2 visits have been simply great. We are fortunate to have this restaurant. Keep up the good work! We will be returning soon.
