Sunday roast was great - would have been even better with some greens such as broccoli and more carrots and parsnips.

An absolutely superb range of food in the courses of the taster menu. It was all cooked beautifully and served by very proficient staff who knew the products that they were serving very well, whether it was food, wine or cheese. Well done, we'll definitely be back again.

Incredible evening. We visited last year for my husband’s birthday but brought my parents this time. They absolutely loved it and were blown away with the food! Can’t wait to return!

Fantastic experience. Highlights included the seaweed custard. The bread with the Berlin supper was simply best bread I have ever had! The celeriac is a Roots classic and not to be missed. While the apple sorbet with juniper foam was new to me and divine. The swede and passion fruit purée - a taste revelation. As was the combination of banana and parsnip. We had the wine tasting as well and although that was too much alcohol for me, the flavours added a dimension to the dishes that surprised me. The only tiny criticism is that the discovery menu may feature too many fish/seafood dishes. They were all yummy, but possibly one too many for balance?

The food was delicious, beautifully presented, well balanced, and in proportion. There were many elements to the meal I had never seen anywhere before, totally original. The ambience was welcoming and warm, and the staff lovely. Highly recommended The coffee didn't match the high standard of the rest of the meal.

Just has a wedding anniversary meal there. The whole team provided perfect service for an unforgettable taster menu. The wines were expertly chosen to complement each dish. Looking to going back in another 20 years for our ruby anniversary ;)
