We had a lovely evening at St Villa with friends. The atmosphere was great and the food was delicious! Loved the cocktail menu too 😍 Can’t wait to go back and try an igloo.

Ive been there five times and I enjoyed their duck pasta always. I went there on March 16th my birthday. I was very disappointed this time.There were only tiny bit of duck in the pasta... They put lots of carrots instead.. they have never put carrot before.. I don’t recommend anyone anymore...

I booked online requesting a pod and highlighting it was for a 40th birthday brunch treat and was disappointed to find neither request had been acknowledged. The restaurant was empty hence no atmosphere. Our dishes were average, presentation was average and food wasn’t hot. I had noticed it was sitting on the counter for a while whilst the chef was preparing. I have been here for dinner previously and it was was good. Disappointing brunch and not much choice.

The set lunch was a real treat, and very good value. I was surprised how few customers there were on a Saturday early afternoon.

We had a great dining experience at St. Villa, the service was great and food was really good. I would recommend others to try this place. Plus on a Tuesday, a bottle of wine is half price, you can't go wrong!

Food and service were excellent but there were very few customers so little atmosphere. Just one of those things. At least I could hear, though!

The hostess was unhelpful and slightly rude when I wanted to discuss my wheat allergy. Her ignorance came across as disinterested and almost resulted in us leaving to eat somewhere else - there are many surrounding restaurants. I was made to feel like a problem as she shrugged her shoulders and asked me "is it just because you don't like it". Although the menu advertises GF choices. My meal was accomodated around, with thorough discussion qith the chef - it shouldnt be that difficult should it?. The service was then taken over by a wonderfully attentive waiter who couldnt accomodate us enough with his kindness. Ice and lemon should be a basic for table water (without having to ask) when the bottle is served at room temperature/almost warm. It was my birthday - we stayed about 1hr as a result of not feeling welcome.

George our waiter was very attentive and provided great service. Also, the lady who showed us to our table was very good and the bar staff very helpful in making us a bespoke cocktail. Loved the food and the pods were brilliant! We will definitely be coming back! Thanks!

We are regulars at the restaurant and love the fact that the menu does change with the seasons. The set menu is fantastic value. The service is friendly and the outside pods are a revelation.The food is good and the atmosphere is relaxing. We had a romantic Valentines lunch in one of the pods. Perfect!

It was certainly a birthday I’ll always remember. Great atmosphere in the pod and we had a wonderful waitress Daisy who was courteous, professional and fun. The food was superb and the pod/igloo made all the more special. I understand having 2 seatings per night, but I think having the pod for the whole evening unrushed makes the experience all the more fantastical.
