Great food and lovely staff. All COVID safe and compliant, a nice treat. A tad on the pricey side which prevents more frequent visits but never feel ripped off or not getting what we pay for. Well done Nicky & team!

This was our second visit in a week. We were delighted to be seated in the private dining area. Although a bit chilly to begin with the staff obliged by switching the fire on. Harry was a fantastic waiter and the food and drink were excellent. We’ll definitely be back.

An amazing place with loads of atmosphere and has always been a family favourite, due to current restrictions it’s totally safe and all guidelines are totally respected but still fun to dine in ! The Sunday Roasts are excellent and even better when washed down with a cocktail made by Harry !! Delighted to be back !!

We have eaten many times at Cognitos but this Covid virtual meal was our best ever! We had a bottle of champagne on arrival, nicely chilled of course. Shared tempura beans for starter.Yummy. Catch of the day was delicious. Had to be followed of course by the apple/fudge/custard extravaganza for pudding. Nice glass of sauvignon to wash down the food. Service as usual excellent. Rolled home after.... and of course it didn’t cost us a thing! Look forward to returning in future. Ewan Wallace

We decided to come out for one last meal this week before the anticipated Covid shutdown ( which has now happened). As usual it was delicious , especially the catch of the day ( congrats to chef!). Can’t wait for you to re-open. Your loyal customers will be waiting!

We were welcomed and shown our table quickly. However staff member gave us menus then went back the bar. Took a further 20 minutes before we could order drinks. Food was as normal,high quality. Staff could have been more aware of customers needs. More than once we had to ask them for service. Don’t worry,still be back for more.
