Having eaten here 4 times I can honestly say it depends on where your table is positioned as some tables can be detrimental to your enjoyment if put near the piano or the door. I agree with other reviews food & service can be mixed. However, we have always come away having had a good evening. The Minster lit up... More

In the general restaurant it was a bit tight, with tables very close together. The male lavatory wasn't working and the ladies was very small... More

We went for lunch having seen the restaurant online and booked ahead. The restaurant was great value for money with a variety of menu options. The food was gorgeous, we had three courses with wine. It was a lovely atmosphere, the staff were attentive, its great having trained silver service you can really tell the difference.

The Piano in Southwell experience is fine dining as it should be. From the moment we stepped in, the customer service was truly excellent. The food is full of flavour and well presented. There is plenty of choice and the meals are good sized portions. Beautiful view of the Minster in the back room but the front room is equally... More
