Critics Review
Review by Manchester Confidential's Mark Garner
19.5/20
The food here is classic French with tickles, the tickles are only there to put a couple of fingers up to the new wave chemists. You would be happy taking dinner on a tray right there. The people serving you are outstanding. The wine list sets your hair on end. I mean, a 1964 Dom Perignon? This is Ian Fleming territory. Michael Broadbent scored the year with five stars. There are over 1000 ‘bins’. Arguably this is the best for miles and miles, representing a staggering £3m investment. Simon Radley has been chef for over eleven years with a couple of short breaks in between. He and Mark Bevan, the manager, run the place with passion, verve and a clarity of purpose that had Gordo in mind of some of the best chateaux in France in their heyday of the eighties.

5 of us had a wonderful meal at Simon Radley. The meal was amazing and the service was excellent. The bread is the main attraction for me and it what makes it different from other Michelin star restaurants. They did run out of one variety this time which was a small disappointment but only because it's so nice. I would highly recommend this to friends and family for a special occasion.

We had a fantastic time trying the tasting menu on a Saturday evening. The food was gorgeous and the service was impeccable. In particular we enjoyed having Boris as our waiter.

This is the third time my wife and I have been to Simon Radley for the Taster Menu and once again we were not disappointed! Outstanding food, excellent service and an all round amazing experience. When there is a special occasion that needs celebrating then this restaurant is always at the top of the list!

Cheese board was amazing and the staff were lovely. However at times I found the intricate descriptions of each dish a bit too detailed (it was as if they hadn’t realised we had read the menu!!)

The range of breads delighted us. We were to enjoy a three hour gourmet experience of small, delicious plates. I couldn’t choose a favourite. A wonderful way to celebrate with my sister her 70th Birthday. Thank you for the final chocolate saying Happy Birthday.
