Birthday dinner in March, food was amazing and so was the service. Will definitely be returning. The fudge they gave us to take home at the end of the night was a lovely touch to end the evening. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Great atmosphere and good service though the waiting times between courses could be improved. Food is fresh and quality of the cooking is as you would expect for a 2 AA rosette restaurant. Recommendation would be the Sunday lunch which will have most of their main dishes and is a better value.

We had a very special night here last Friday. Were not sure what to expect sand were blown away by the overall experience. The food was absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. The waiting staff were so attentive all evening, making sure everything was perfect for us. We would highly recommend eating here and experiencing the wonderful atmosphere.

Was lucky enough to be taken out to Restaurant 27 for a special occasion, and we have the 7 course tasting menu here. Really amazing food an a great gastronomic experience. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and the whole night was lovely. Would highly recommend for a special occasion or for sampling culinary wonders. Not overly expensive either.... More

Seven of us ate here, celebrating a birthday on a Saturday night. We all chose the Spring Menu 2 which entailed sampling about 7 or 8 courses of the most wonderfully prepared and presented food, each mouthful providing an explosion of taste and texture - simply amazing!!!! While not cheap, we all agreed that the whole experience from the food,... More
