We are very fond of the Chesil and after a bit of an absence we thought the food was on an upward curve- bolder flavours and the same technical skill we remember. I loved my hake with blood orange and monks beard. The sommelier and maîtresse d’hôte were both charming and we very much enjoyed the whole meal. I love the building and the banquettes and cosy and intimate though if I were to say anything at all I prefer this building lit by candlelight. A minor quibble

Great food and wine! Especially the lamb rump cooked perfectly! Only criticism our wine order had to be taken twice, then it was forgotten about, but arrived quickly after asking. It was delicious, might have had two bottles for it arrived sooner. Great lunch though.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner and the tasting menu was delicious. We could have done with a bit more of the ham hock terrine though!

We had the tasting menu and would highly recommend. Every course was memorable and delicious. It was the first visit for my family, I had been before and kept promising to take them, they all loved the food and surroundings. Can’t wait to go back!

The whole occasion was perfect from start to finish. The reception was very friendly as was the service throughout. The food was excellent, plenty of choices served at a perfect pace hot and delicious. The atmosphere was comfortable and easily able to converse which is not always the case in modern establishments.

The lunch set looks great value, but unfortunately the price is reflected in the ingredients. My main course pollock was 80% new potatoes, and a few flakes of fish. Likewise my lunch guest was similarly disappointed in his Turkey schnitzel with "Fried Hen's egg" - otherwise known as a fried egg. Presentation looks good, but it needs the food to deliver. Wine was great, environment and service were spot on. Happy to pay more for better food.
