It was our Golden Wedding and everyone (30 guests) all commented on how lovely the whole restaurant was and all enjoyed their meals and drinks. The staff were so helpful and the food was delicious. Some of our guests were that impressed they said they will be going again.

Beautiful setting with fantastic staff with attention to detail. Not the cheapest place in town but you really do get what you pay for. It was our anniversary and I asked for a nice table with a view and that’s exactly what we got and to top off the superb starter and mains we had a lovely dessert with Happy Anniversary on the plates .. 10 out of 10 well done 1539 for making our evening so special.

We hired out the lounge bar and roof terrace to celebrate our businesses' 30th anniversary. The staff were very helpful from the moment I booked the venue. On the evening the team couldn't do enough for us or our guests. We've received wonderful feedback from the evening. Highly recommended. Thank you to you all.

Our Sunday lunch was first class. The roast beef was out of this world and the best we have eaten anywhere. We would not hesitate to recommend 1539. and look forward to our next visit. The combination of the meal and the view makes the restaurant our favourite dining venue.

Excellent roast beef Sunday Lunch and perfect puddings too. It would be difficult to find anywhere as good for Sunday Lunch and probably impossible to find anywhere better, not only is the food first class but so are the staff, not to mention the view onto the racecourse and the comfortable chairs, it all adds up to perfection in my mind! Please keep up the good work.

Important to feel welcome when entering the restaurant. We have been here many times before and always been well looked after on arrival. We totally missed this when we arrived this time. Overall the place has lost the personal touch. Seems like you are catering more for younger people with loud music coming from the upper level. This was a classy restaurant before but not anymore.

The service from the staff was excellent and nothing was too much trouble. The food was excellent and I will definitely come again. I usually go to Royal Ascot but couldn't this year and this was a good alternative

Both myself & my companion returned our steaks which were too thick & tough, certainly not worth the £6 supplement, in my opinion it was the quality of the steak which was inferior & not the cooking (silk purse sow’s ear etc) the alternatives were better, starter was good (kedgeree) & dessert was fine
