We reserved an 8.30 seating and arrived at 8.25. We were told to sit at the bar and eventually seated at 9 pm!! The meals were incredibly slow and drawn out and after waiting 30 mins after the entree we were bought dessert. It was dumped o the tablre and the waiter was off before we could tell him we hadn't received our main! Once we did get someones attention, we had to wait for another 15 minutes until our main arrived. Thr evening was incredibly drawn out and the service was poor and unfriendly. Perhaps it is that we were attending on an Eat Odd Restaurant Week deal, because we felt we were treated like second class citizens.

Went as part of restaurant month- really interesting and delicious food! They were also accommodating for a couple of slight changes to the menu due to being pregnant which was great. Only gave 4 stars for service as they were busy, so drinks didn't come as quickly as we would have liked, but would definitely go back.

Our first time dining at Culprit was a fantastic experience - absolutely delicious food, attentive and speedy service, and a great atmosphere perched at the kitchen bar being able to watch the talented chefs at work. Thank you for a fantastic night, we look forward to dining with you again!

We were looking forward to our dinner and it was so disappointing. Right from the moment we got there, the staff weren’t interested at all. They seemed totally bored. We had the restaurant month menu which was nice to try different things. The sides portions were tiny, and we were given the same amount for 3 people as a couple next door. I’ve sent spoken to some friends and they also had a bad experience. It’s such a shame as I think the Culprit concept is great, but we won’t be back.

The food was delicious, loved the idea and the style, loved some of the off cuts, like the bone marrow, and pig face. The brussel sprouts were incredible and the Old Bay was a nice taste of home for me.

The food was amazing, the marriage of flavours outstanding. We loved the flank steak and pig's face but the fish portion was too small. The guys are still raving about the oysters and the bone marrow was delicious.

Everything was lovely except the waitress was not so good. I think she was new and she was not very good. However it didn't spoil a great evening.

Amazing place. We had a group of 10 and had the Delicacies menu. Everybody was surprised by the detail of flavours and textures and loved the food, the service and location from start to finish. Great job!

Our first visit last Saturday. Thoroughly enjoyed our evening & the food sitting up at bar. Good wine by glass list. Our waitress was very attentive & miraculously appeared just at the moment we needed assistance. Look forward to our next visit

Lovely food and great idea having the tapas coming around like a Yum Char. Only issue I found was the menu font far too small - no-one could read it and the waitress said she had the same feedback from everyone. this begs the question of why not reprint in a larger font. Otherwise, i could not fault this restaurant.
