We visited this “ Little Gem “ of a restaurant and were greeted with a warm and friendly welcome. Our service and food was excellent ! I had the cod dish and my Husband had the pork dish. Both tasted so fresh and flavoursome. This was an Itison deal that we purchased so what a fantastic deal we got. Having said that I would highly recommend the Tainsteal to all my family and friends and rate it 5⭐️ We will definitely be back.

I was attracted by the concept of fine dining experience at an affordable price. And it does deliver. Might need to work a little on the selection of wines to match each course but very nice nonetheless. Thank you for a lovely meal.

Food, atmosphere and staff were all great. Unpretentious and very welcoming. Will definitely come back. Only thing was there could've been more choice for vegans although it's a small menu so I understand why not!

The 3 course market menu is the best thing you can have for £16, no doubt.

Some nicely done dishes but sometimes too many strong flavours on a dish and/or too much seasoning.

A great find with top quality food and not expensive. Our first time here enjoying their 7 course taster menu. Food was spot on and each course was delicious. We enjoy our food and this is one place we will most definitely come back to!

Was surprised on arrival to find that there was no information on the taster menu. We were only given the a la carte menu until we enquires otherwise. The taster menu was delicious. We went for the drinks pairing with it. My only criticism of the evening was that the matched drinks were all different. A selection of different wines would have been better suited than ciders and cocktails etc. Woke up with a banging headache from the mixing of drinks! Other than that, it was all lovely and friendly staff.

First visit here. Asked for window seat when reserving and got window seat! Good service, good food, nice ambience apart from one very loud person whose female companion was struggling to get a word in! Would happily return - very enjoyable evening.

My friend & I found the mixture of ingredients confusing and not to our taste. The caramelised broccoli soup has to be the worst soup we have ever tasted.

Disappointed with our table as it was sandwiched between two other tables which felt rather tight. The starters were very tasty but the portions were too small. I am not a big eater but even I had to eat the bread as I was still hungry after the starter. Again the main courses were delicious but not enough food on the plate. I am well aware that this is fine dining but I would have preferred to have left the restaurant feeling more content. If the portions were slightly bigger then I would return.

Excellent, pleasant and knowledgeable service, fantastic food, and reasonable pricing. The space is a bit too small to allow intimacy, but that's hardly a problem. Over whole a great dining experience.
