We stayed at Darwin’s kitchen for our 10th Anniversary and booked in the restaurant for a meal. It was a lovely cosy and warm atmosphere and the food was delicious. Staff who served us were friendly and helpful.

The waitresses were excellent and worth every penny of the extra service charge added. However where we were seated was right next to the smoking shelter/conservatory and every time someone went outside they left the door ajar and it was really cold. We had to keep getting up to close it, not to mention the smell of cigarette smoke that wafted through. I am being treated for cancer and this made me feel quite nauseous. The food was ‘average’ and expensive for what we we had. The 10pm curfew just doesn’t leave enough time for dessert and we felt rushed towards the end - I appreciate this is beyond your control!

The only negative feedback would be that my starter was wrong and so my husband and I got our starters at different times. However the staff were very apologetic about it. The value for money was fantastic especially considering that the meal was a travelzoo voucher that had been bought for us. The service and staff was wonderful. The food was delicious.

I booked a table for my bridesmaids and we really enjoyed our evening! The staff looked after us very well, the food came out quickly and was very nice. The sticky toffee pud in particular was delicious! The supervisor (I think! She was wearing a pink top!) remembered me from a previous meal and made a special effort to engage in conversation which was really lovely. Thankyou!!

The Social Distancing measures you had in place were very good, however not all staff were wearing their masks over their mouths and noses - one just had them on their chin a bit disconcerting when they leaned over to light the candles on every table.

Service was a little slow but that is the only complaint that we would have out of a great evening of even greater food! Pricy but you know you’re going to get a good meal out of it. Everyone really friendly and helpful though.

Had a brilliant meal. The Pork Belly was amazing. My date & I both had that. I highly recommend the Apple & Blackberry crumble tart. Honestly, if you like the sound of it, have it. My date had the Macerated Pineapple for pud, and from the look on his face, he enjoyed it! *grin*
