Wonderful atmosphere straight from the off and every dish we tried was delicious. A particularly highlight was the milk chocolate with mushroom for dessert! Sounds weird right? But it was absolutely stunning, and very clever on top of it! Would 10/10 recommend. And for the wonderful food and service, you get great value for money too. Will be back. Soon.

Lovely food. Nice atmosphere. Very kind as we were 20mins late. Took ages for the food to turn up though! We were in the restaurant for 40mins before we got anything. We would go back though because the food was brilliant.

Staff were pleasant if not a bit curt and rushed, not through being busy just trying to get what they had to say over with asap. Plates to eat from were cold, which in turn meant the food was luke warm when eating it, and when the monkfish I ordered was very rare, really meant it was cold to eat. Some Flavour combinations didn’t go, but that’s purely a personal opinion.

Great little restaurant. Beautiful mezzanine level and cosy dining area in basement. Staff were lovely and really knowledgable about menu. Food was beautifully cooked and presented, menu was a little narrow on options. Would highly recommend!

It would be nice to get an idea of the size of each dish. I don’t mind them being small when they are really interesting and tasty but sometimes one wants something a bit more filling. The descriptions don’t currently help.

I had a very enjoyable evening. All the food I chose was excellent, but I would have happily tried everything else on the menu. It was a great read. Service was great: I loved the enthusiasm and knowledge of the waitress and the time she had to answer my questions.

Coming to Alchemilla is a treat - the atmosphere and service never disappoint, and the food is always next-level, if sometimes slightly pricey. My only real disappointment is the lack of vegan desserts; I appreciate that the main focus is on savoury food and that there's not usually a wide range of desserts but, based on what I've eaten so far, I'd love to see what amazing plant-based puddings the creative chefs could come up with!

4 out of 5 dishes served at near room temp. Ordered bread which never arrived. Our waitress had an off-putting stern demeanor. Deserts small considering the price. Left still hungry.

The food was exquisite, & our waitress was wonderful and great at explaining things. we ate every single morsel and wiped the plates clean, with our fingers :) Table was quite 'tight' with stools very close together (ok for us but if you were a large person it would be tricky). Loos lovely with nice toiletries. Can't fault it really. Will be back soon I hope.

I was shown to a tiny side-by-side table on the mezzanine when I had requested seating downstairs. Staff claimed they didn’t know this but I definitely booked it. In the end, I was shown to a table in the basement. After ordering, the first dish took over 45 minutes to arrive. The food was quite nice but I’m not sure it was particularly good value - £10 for a plate of cauliflower seemed steep. It was disappointing as I’d been really looking forward to trying Alchemilla.

We have high expectations of restaurants, the service at Alchemilla was exceptional. There seems to be a good relationship between the chiefs and the restaurant staff. Very informed and well organised team. The food was very good, the plates where tasty and well presented, but slightly small. Wine options where good, not the best value for money, but we did not mind as we where having a lovely evening. We left the restaurant feeling really good, and would go back again in the future.
