Came here with my girlfriend after hearing good reviews. The restaurant itself is really nice and welcoming as are the staff. We ordered off the special board, scallops with bacon and a cauliflower puree and the belly pork chilli noodles. The scallops were amazing all the flavours really worked well together and well presented definitely the best part of the... More

Had a great window table for 6. We all chose from the fixed price evening meal. 3 courses for £21.50. We had a range of starters, mains and desserts - all excellent. Big bowls of potatoes, mash sweet potatoes and broccoli were brought with our mains, but we left loads because they were such big portions. The staff were very... More

I visited for my birthday with family. We all ate different things from the menu and they were all really tasty. It was a great visit and the live music was surprisingly good. Can't wait to visit again

Visited there for the first time last Saturday evening (4/6/16), with 4 adults and 3 children comprising our party, service was excellent without being obtrusive, food was delicious with a good menu selection and a comprehensive "Specials" board. Prices were pretty reasonable and the atmosphere nice and buzzy without being drowned out by music. We'll definitely be eating there again.

I was out with former colleagues having a meal and Smiths does a nice early bird menu. I had the mushroom pate, the aubergines and the peanut cheesecake. It was all very nice indeed, although due to a mix up in the kitchen my main course was late. Because of this, they didn't charge us and provided a fresh plate... More

I have been a fan for too many years to remember. Even when David was catering before opening Bistro 221. I now live out of the country, but always have a meal here when I am home for a visit. As always, I was not disappointed. Thank you David and crew.

We've been vsiting this restaurant for around 19 years - since Dave and Elaine took it over. The food and service have always been excellent but until recently we haven't been concerned about disabled access. This is also excellent, although from the front this may not be apparent, due to the three steepish steps. If one goes around the corner... More

Well presented meals that looked Apertising and were tasty. Excellent service with attentive staff. The scallops were perfectly cooked and the rack of lamb was just right. Very good value

Attended here for a 60th Birthday Party Celebration. The set menu was excellent as were the staff. My husband came to pick me up at 10 o'clock as he looked on line and thought it closed then. I was still enjoying my delicious chocolate beetroot cake and coffee so the owner took him upstairs and gave him coffee whilst he... More
