Needless to say, another great visit to Bishops, as always superlative food and great atmosphere. Alessandro introduced us to his new trainee manager, a charming young man who will go far in the hospitality industry. The meal was perfectly timed, and ended with a short walk up to the Theatre Royal for the Mamma Mia matinee. All in all a... More

Good food a little cold when served service is a bit lacking though not poor but I felt it was insincere .I have eat in some nice places and I would eat here again .Its small and very cosy .Another thing that buggs me is when places adverise a set menu but then add supplements for items on menu ?

We have eaten at Bishops several times over the years. Last night we enjoyed a really superb meal - without exception each course was spot on - faultless service and exceptional food in a relaxed ambience. This indeed is probably the best fine food restaurant in the City. The wine list is interesting but not excessive. The proprietor is as... More

I came for lunch with my son. The restaurant is small but very attractively appointed. We were given a warm welcome from the patron and offered the drinks' menus from which we each chose a glass of prosecco. The restaurant has a set two or three course lunch menu which is very good value and offers a wide choice. Portions... More

Me and my partner visited here for our valentines meal and we were not disappointed! Very warm welcome as we came in, we sat at the bar for a drink and some complimentary olives, picked our food off of the menu and were seated when it was ready. All courses came out swiftly and the food was to die for.... More

Gorgeous quaint building, the staff were really attentive, cannot fault anything. The food was delicious, a feast of scallops followed by duck and then a clever dessert of elderflower cheesecake and ginger ice cream. Really enjoyed every mouthful. I will definitely be returning.

For the cooking excellent: good choice, well cooked, well presented, very tasty. No complaints. I particularly liked the indulgent puddings. Lovely little restaurant: well presented and comfortable, but just a tad small and crowded, lacking a little in privacy. But not a serious issue. Good service: efficient, personable, all you could wish for. We were a little surprised how busy... More
