We felt the portion size was a touch too small for a four course tasting. But the flavours were lovely. The service was attentive without being too much.

This was quite simply the best vegan meal I and my two friends have ever had. The dishes were perfectly executed- inventive, beautifully presented and utterly delicious. The staff were exceptional- fantastic service from people who clearly love what they do- first class service with genuine warmth and none of the obsequiousness that can come with restaurants of this standard. Cannot wait to return!

We had an amazing and unforgettable evening. The food was outstanding - have already left a review on trip advisor - it really was one of the best culinary experiences we’ve had! And the service was great - you were all so friendly and helpful.

Great evening as always. Fantastic food, best desert I’ve had at Johns. Nice to have cod for the fish course. We had the wine pairing too including a wonderful red. Thanks very much.

This is our second visit and we had a nice evening but the comments we made when we first had dinner there a few weeks after you first opened have not made any difference. The seating is too low and uncomfortable. A gentleman on the table next to us had to bring in a cushion for his wife to sit on, so I guessed he had eaten before. Also as much as the food was enjoyable we spent nearly £500 but was still hungry when we left.
