Fantastic experience... didn’t try any alcohol but the water was nice ... As I was first in @ 18:30 on a Wed night difficult to judge atmosphere... Service was excellent... provided advice on choices and very attentive... Would definitely return next time I am back in Colch

Grain is our favourite restaurant because we are never disappointed with the food or service. The food is full of surprises and of a very high standard, we also like the rustic charm of the place which makes you feel very relaxed. We cannot speak too highly of the waiting on staff who are friendly but at the same time professional.

Fantastic evening, I'm sure no one on the night went home hungry I couldn't manage all my courses! Really good value for a New Years Eve night out.

We held our company Christmas party at Grain on 20th December 2019 and we can highly recommend it. We were a party of 13: the food was excellent and presented to a high standard - indeed, it's refreshing for a restaurant to maintain standards and not slip into the Christmas party mentality of bland offerings. Well done to the team at Grain. Merry Christmas!

Waited a long time to come here after so many recommendations and they were not wrong. From the moment we arrived greeted by personal terms they knew who we were, to the moment we left after a superb meal the whole experience was just brilliant. Thanks to all who served us and cooked for us WE WILL RETURN!

Awesome as always, I cannot praise the team enough, the only downside will be when you get your Michelin star it’ll be harder to get a table! Keep up the fantastic work and thank you!!

The beetroot soup was amazing! And all the other dishes as good as normal. The nice thing about this place is that the menu is constantly changing and there is always something new to try out.

Exceptional unexpected flavours given to very ordinary ingredients, a lot of love and thought goes into the cooking. Service is good with all staff having good knowledge of the menu and ingredients. Highly recommended

As always the food and service were exemplary. My favourite course was the cauliflower katsu which i could literally have eaten four of.
