Couldn’t come because the restaurant was closed due to Coronavirus. It is a splendid restaurant, however.

Had the Mother’s Day home delivery menu. Couldn’t fault it. Great value and delicious food. Delivered on time by a friendly delivery driver. Food was perfect. Much needed in these current times. Big thanks to all the staff at 1539 and can’t wait to come in and enjoy a meal in the restaurant when we get through this. Keep up the great work. Social distancing but with 1539 at home makes all the difference!

Mother’s Day take out. Sadly after the restaurants were shut this weekend I thought Mother’s Day lunch would be a disaster, until 1539 saved the day with there take out Sunday lunch. Honestly I could not find a single thing to fault it was brilliant!!

Yet another fantastic meal with wonderful service, just at the right level, not too fussy. Amazing steaks - wish I knew who your butcher is! Can't wait to come back again. Thank you all for another very enjoyable Gold Cup day.

As hosts travelling from another country and not sure what to expect, we were absolutely pleased with everything; the food, the ambiance, the service. We were especially thrilled with the attention and service provided to us by Sue, who helped us plan from beginning to end and was a fantastic host to us the day of the event.

The food was lovely, atmosphere was fantastic. In general it was superb, there where really only two minor things. 1 was after we'd been served we got forgotten about (when we to pay), the 2nd is (this might be related to 1) when enter card details there was no option to leave a tip.

Going to 1539 is our favourite family venue, it’s like going from home to home with the ultimate sophisticated experience, the staff are all outstanding and when I am able to have mummy off time away from the children.. I wouldn’t want to go anywhere else! Superb!

We used the 'Two for One Monday' offer and it was extremely good value. The venue was lovely with a great view over the Roodee and beyond. By the number of people there this is obviously a very popular offer - and rightly so.
