We had a truly amazing evening at Stark. The food is stunningly good-every one of the six courses was spot-on perfect. Truly this was gastronomic heaven! We also loved the warm friendly atmosphere

We have been waiting to go here for ages - we were not disappointed. Every one of the six dishes was excellent, innovative. different in taste but fantastic! In hindsight, I wish we had had the wine pairing, we only tried it with the Venison! Sophie front of house was brilliant, helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. Go there!!

Exquisite great quality food. Always cooked to perfection. The menu changes regularly, so you always get a selection of new & exciting dishes to try. Service is excellent. One of the best restaurants we have ever eaten at.

Without a doubt one of the best places you’ll ever eat! We’ve been here twice now and every single dish without exception has been amazing. The fact we only dined a couple of months apart and that the menu was totally different in every way is truely unique. I can not recommend this restaurant enough. The chef is a genius! Needless to say we’ll be back.

Very true and sympathetic. Good cooking, though -more contrast of texture, size, shape of ingredients would be welcome. Tiny dice of veg./ meat/ fish, are good but not too often. The overall lightness of meal was appreciated. Very good desserts. Friendly service.A very human, hands-on restaurant. Bravo..

The thing that stood out for us other than the amazing food and service was combination of it. A relaxed and informal atmosphere coupled with the most exquisite food - fine dining without the starch linen. The pairing was perfection. Really lovely to get to talk to you both afterwards, made the evening even more memorable. Having a small restaurant just gives us a more unique experience, it's pretty special!

What can I say, my wife and I loved our meal at your very cosy intimate restaurant. The food was some of the best we have ever eaten! The accompanying wines were perfectly suited to the dishes. We very much enjoyed our visit and will certainly be coming back. I have already recommended you to lots of other local people who appreciate good food. If I had to make a suggestion on possible improvement I think a little more explanation of what's on the plate and also the accompanying wine and why they are well suited might have enhanced the experience slightly. Like I said though one of the best emails out we have ever had! Best of luck for the future!

Excellent.... we enjoyed the meal/experience tremendously. Sophie was very helpful through the booking process and in ordering in the soft drinks we requested. Ben's imagination in the menu, skill n preparing the food were excellent. Food was wonderful. All six courses were a wonderful combination of textures, flavors and visual beauty. Even loved the plates/dishes used for presenting the dishes...all added to the experience. Waitress was friendly and helpful. Restaurant, though small, doe not seem crowded and has a great ambiance. We are hoping to return in February.

Were heard about this restaurant from a very good friend, the food is fantastic the restaurant is very small with just a few tables, The wife and I had the wine paring menu. The preparation that goes into this menu is seconded to non, this is fine dinning in a rustic setting hence the price and in my opinion well worth it. the only issue I had are the plates, the food which was excellent was served in stone wear bowls, which made it a little difficult to get to the food, with the knife scrapping the stone bowl it was a little annoying. But that aside I highly recommend it.
