I’ve visited Quay Commons a number of times at the weekend and always had great service. However, at lunchtime on a weekday it wasn’t so busy - but the staff didn’t seem on the ball. A couple of times we had to prompt the staff about an order. I asked for the bill - it never came - I gave up waiting! For two plus hours the chef was making bread - which is great - but the constant noise for the duration was too much. So not the best lunch experience!

We visited for "Pasta Night" again and cannot fault it. Freshly cooked incredible food, natural and fresh flavours served with lovely wine and in a relaxed, informal and very welcoming atmosphere. We will definitely be back.

Excellent pasta, but no forewarning that it was “pasta night”. Poor choice of chilled wines and (sod’s law) the chosen wine was corked. Restaurant was empty on a Friday night, perhaps because it’s difficult to discover what’s on offer and even when you’re open.

Had the continental breakfast again and just as delicious. The smoked salmon is just lush. Lovely service.

Have to say the continental breakfast is fab. Lovely high quality elements like smoked salmon, granola, apple juice, croissant and jam, ham, fruit. Good enough to share between two.So good we will be back soon, maybe today!

Excellent. Great to see a short menu focusing on fresh and seasonal ingredients. We shared some of your delightful sourdough, with the smoked anchovies/rocket pesto/mozzarella. Very fresh and really compelling flavours. Would love the pesto recipe! We had the mussels pasta and the chorizo cauliflower pasta - both excellent. East Coast cured is just down the road from us, and we’re big fans, so lovely to see their fabulous produce in use. We’ll be back for sure.

Have been to Quay Commons for Brunch and coffee and cake before. This time three of us went to one of their first pasta nights: Fridays/Saturdays, featuring freshly made pasta. We had a very nice evening. Menu is quite limited, but all the dishes we had were very tasty, washed down with a nice wine in a relaxed atmosphere.

We ordered bacon on toasted sourdough bread but it was far too hard to eat. The crusts were rock hard and black and both of us only ate the middle part. My mouth was sore after trying to eat a few small pieces. The latte coffee was in a really small cup with no handles but the second one was in a mug and much better. I think we just had bad luck and both of us would like to go again as I’ve heard so many good reports from friends.

We booked out Quay Commons for a private birthday dinner on Saturday and had a brilliant evening there. The staff couldn't possibly have been more friendly and helpful, the food was amazing, exactly the standard you would expect from the group of people behind the Gardeners Cottage, my personal favourite was the crab ravioli which I could happily eat every day. As the space is also a bakery we commissioned a birthday cake which was no ordinary cake, it was quite possibly the best cake I have ever eaten, a lavish, rich chocolate mocha gateau. The cake was the last addition to our bespoke menu which the chef kindly put together encompassing a range of dishes suitable for everyone, even those with dietary restrictions. A great selection of wine too, we heartily recommend Quay Commons for a private event and will be popping down very soon for lunch/brunch.

we had lamb shank, surprisingly it was lamb pieces with broad flat pasta and kale. it was cold unfortunately and took a while to be served. Choc brownies were excellent and we were given cream on request with no charge. Service was friendly and helpful and efficient. Atmosphere cafe like. 3 people for lunch.

We really enjoyed our excellent food from start to finish and the staff were attentive and informative, while also being very pleasant. It was quiet for a Saturday night which is why I marked down the atmosphere. Our waitress gave us a loaf of the great sourdough bread on leaving, such a treat. We'll be back.
