Overall meal was great and very tasty. I had the beef (which was a bit rare) and there was too much meat and not enough vegetables. A few potatoes would have been nice.

A lovely first experience for myself and my mother in law ( my mum who was also with us comes to you regularly). The staff and food were fantastic. I only gave a 3 star for atmosphere as it’s just a little different eating out now due to Covid. Not a reflection on yourselves. Thank you I will be back 😊

Can't fault it. Great experience, food and service very good. Good quality food, looks and tastes great, and at a great price. Service from people on their 1st, 2nd & 3rd day, learning the trade, but still made you feel so welcome.

The Atmosphere is very different with all the staff wearing protection gear, may be more greenery in the deco would improve it somehow. We nevertheless really enjoyed our lunch, it was a treat, so thank you for running such a quality service and culinary experience.

The three-star rating for atmosphere is inevitable, given the prevailing circumstances, but staff and students were as welcoming and cheerful as ever. But overall, a delight to be back at my favourite restaurant.

Although we were unable to hold the event due to Covid – 19 this would have been the third time the Drapers Company had come to Origins due entirely to the fact that on the previous two occasions we had an excellent time , lovely food , great service and a warm welcome from all the staff and students. We hope to return in October if the situation permits .

It was great, loved it. I can be quite a fuzzy eater so being limited to a taster menu encourages me to try so many different dishes that I might not always choose, all of which turned out great, kitchen catered well for a pescatarian as well. Fab service. Thanks and see you again.

I didn't know what to expect with Irish night but the food presented was an absolute delight. I liked the choice of pearl barley and whilst stout ice cream with apple and oats didn't sound promising the actual combination was fabulous. Overall an excellent homage to the country
