Absolutely loved our dinner here! Great food, wonderful wines (although perhaps would like a few more to be open by the glass) but most importantly just fantastically conscientious staff who really seem to enjoy what they do. Smiles all around!

Four of us dined for the first time at Linden stores after I had read an article in Olive magazine. Apart from no gin for predinner drinks the overall experience was excellent. Food was delicious, service great and ambiance perfect. Highly recommend and will definitely be returning, it’s my new favourite place.

Lovely place to eat - the service is really friendly, the food exciting and delicious and the wine list excellent. Quite small so I think it would be wise to reserve in advance!

We came for dinner on Saturday evening and having had a somewhat cramped fish tapas eve at Prawn on the Lawn on a previous occasion it was lovely to be seated in your revamped ground floor. Service was delightfully friendly ( not quite sure where to hang coats but left ours on the wine racks) . And the food was mostly delicious. We loved the pork scratchings (light and not oversalted ) and found the sea trout beautifully done. The broccoli with peanuts was great too. And we ordered the chicken and ham dumpling which we enjoyed but had to wait over 20 mins for the potatoes to show up. The whole small plate thing with the underlying ethos of it will comes as it's ready is really skewed to the convenience or chaos of the kitchen not the logic of the sequence of the dishes: ie the broccoli the potatoes and the chicken and ham dumpling should all have been served at the same time - it's not difficult : it's what professional kitchens are supposed to be able to do. Sometimes small plate service seems like a cop out for the failure of co-ordinated cooking. We were mystified as to why this had happened since there were only 6 other diners in the ground floor /shop floor space. We ate and enjoyed the smoked roast potatoes (smoked was a slightly misleading term for liberal use of paprika ?) with very tasty bovril mayo on their own 15 mins after we had finished everything else. Then after 25 mins or so we were persuaded to order dessert. and then a dessert wine - Turkish - Mahlep (?) it was chilled and almond scented and we liked what we tasted a lot and ordered 2 glasses only to be told 3 mins later that actually there was not enough left in the bottle and no more available. The last glass and dregs were on the house. Fair enough. We were brought the bill. But not the dessert we had ordered to share. The dessert came 15 mins after we pointed this out. It was fine, i liked the vanilla ice my companion rated the choclatey ganachey tart - though I found it needed more nutty or spicey flavouring . Then we paid . 3 glasses of gruner veltliner were great at £5each . The food was billed rightly minus the dessert. Total bill £57 very reasonable. Overall a really delicious meal marred a little by a series of hiccups in the service and speed of arrival of dishes. We realised why when a party of 20 who seemed to be known to the staff and chef emerged from the basement dining room . They were happy . We might have been a little more content if our meal and service had not been made to feel second place to theirs. We will return as the cooking was excellent and we enjoyed the venue. Am also a supporter of Oklava and hope to experience Kyseri soon.

Our server was delightful and knowledgeable about the food and wine. We loved all the dishes but the chicken leg not so much.
