Visited many times in the past and always thought the venue was 5* Last two times we’ve visited in last 3 months, food has been disappointing as a bit hit and miss. Beef and chicken dishes good- but fatty steak, bland risotto and very salty Miso have been our experience. The Miso dish was so unpleasant my wife couldn’t eat it - we told the staff and they offered another meal, but was too late as the party were all on their main courses. Was very surprised therefore to see this meal still on the bill at the end. Service - very good. However, due to the food, at the moment would think twice before booking again unfortunately. Hopefully, this is a blip and 1539 will up its game

Thank you for helping make our birthday celebrations a totally awesome night! The staff were incredibly helpful, polite and easy to work with. From my initial inquiry the team at 1539 have been super, communication was prompt and helpful which made organising our celebration from a distance simple! The quality of the food exceeded our expectations. Your resident DJ played a great mix of music relevant to the varied age group. I simply would not hesitate to recommend 1539 for a private function or as a restaurant option. Super venue and location.

Drinks are very expensive and the beer not the best however this is the only small negative. Other than that we had an amazing evening, made all the better by the attention to detail and the efficiency and experience of all members of staff. Also many members of our party commented on how lovely the food was.

I can not thank the staff at 1539 enough for allowing my to host a baby shower. The venue, the food, everything was completely perfect. I sincerely can't recommend this venue enough, it's a perfect place to celebrate.

We had to wait a long time for our meals. We were a big group and I think we should have been able to give our order in a few days before. If there had been another big party I wonder if they would have coped. Unlike last year when there was 3 big parties. By the time we paid we were running for our bus at 10pm. Also the portion sizes are drastically reduced from last year incl Starters and soups, disappointing especially when you consider the prices. Sue and the waiters were excellent. Can’t fault surroundings and the new bar, The Walls.

Wednesdays are such fantastic value with the special offer but the food, wine, service and atmosphere is still exactly the same as if you were dining at peak times. Incredible

Surprised the restaurant was so quiet. All in all well presented, enjoyable food in a friendly atmosphere. Young table staff lacked knowledge of wine but I guess that’s more a training issue than anything personal.

Attentive and friendly service. Well presented food and delicious flavours - unusual combinations e.g. rhubarb and pear with beetroot and goats cheese starter. Felt slightly rushed through the meal as we were the last to arrive and I guess the chef wanted to be finished for the evening, but this was countered by the individual attention and staff in response to our questions about history of restaurant and facilities available for future function.

We were celebrating a special wedding anniversary with friends and family. The event went very smoothly, your staff were helpful and efficient, the food was wonderful, the wines were as we had specified and drinks before and after up on the terrace were the icing on the cake, given that the weather was also perfect! The restaurant is in such a beautiful setting, and has such a lovely atmosphere. We really could not fault it and would like to thank you for making it such a special day.
