Dinner last Friday exceeded all expectations. It was a culinary experience that will be remembered for a long time. The tasting menu was like a symphony orchestra, you were led organically from the starting course of home made bread accompanied by wonderful turf smoked butter through each course culminating in the wonderful cheese finishing dish. Already planning a return visit.

Such a beautiful restaurant with the perfect level of service. The only reason for the 4 stars on food and drink was the slightly limited choice off the main menu - We maybe would have liked 3 choices instead of 2 for each course. The only main meat dish available on the night was deer, (which can be a bit of an acquired taste), leaving the only other option of cod. Other than that, it was a perfect evening and we’ll definitely be returning.

What a brilliant place! Therese was so lovely, it was like being at a friend’s place for dinner. The rooms are gorgeous, and the food absolutely wonderful. The atmosphere is perfect - attentive and friendly service but relaxed enough to make you feel comfortable - with world class food just the right side of inventive. We will be back!

Everything superb. Only query is the Cheddar, which none of us liked much. But terrific cooking and an amazing experience.

This meal was a Xmas gift for us and, being a tasting menu, we really didn't know what to expect. We had a wonderful time! Each course was a delightful experience and gave us much to discuss and pass on to friends and family. Everything about the evening made it a special occasion for us. Thank you. We look forward to returning in the Summer - if we can get a booking!

The highlight of Christmas for all three of us. The food was spectacularly excellent and delicious. My husband thought it was the best food he had ever tasted. It was a roaring success for all of us. Many thanks for giving us such a brilliant time. Jane

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and really appreciate how lucky we are to have such a world class restaurant on our doorstep. If there is one tiny thing, maybe the portions of some (not all) of the dishes could be just a little more generous, it would be excellent have at least one more mouthful of the deliciousness.

A very warm welcome was followed by a friendly and attentive (but not intrusive) service and outstanding adventure of tastes. Outstanding cooking. Overall experience will be one of my best memories for 2018. Looking forward to repeating the experience in 2019. Well done all at Chastnut (all four of you 😊).

Absolutely incredible from start to finish. This dining experience was out of this world from the minute we received the amazing breads right through to the best dessert I have ever tasted. The flavour of Apple in the dessert was like nothing I have had before, the presentation and detail in each plate received by my wife and I was amazing. We left there talking about when we will go back. Staff more than matched the food with their level of absolute professionalism and warm reception.

Warm welcome. friendly efficient service, great ambience, sublime food. An altogether wonderful evening which we look forward to repeating. We have already recommended Chestnut highly to family and friends. One tiny request as a coeliac would be for a tastier gluten-free bread with the salted butter to start

This was our second visit and now we are living here we intend to visit more often. Fabulous food a real treat so close to home.Simple menu expertly delivered, the whiskey sour a light creamy sensation! We are appreciated the relaxed attitude and lack of stuffiness...please don't change! P.S. There's a typo on this page declaring you're closed from Jan 18 which should be jan 19.
