Beautiful setting & beautiful food/drinks for mine & my partners 8 year anniversary! The food was all really tasty, the sweetcorn main could've had slightly more flavour in the mix & maybe a tad bigger portion but was still enjoyed!! Really loved it there, will be back for sure!

I organised a wine tasting here as part of a friends hens party. It was easy to make a reservation and we were given additional information from the staff which helped our day go smoothly. The service was great and the wines were delicious! I’d love to come back for a meal and sit out in the beautiful garden.

Fabulous Food, service and atmosphere. We did the Degustation dinner, 6 courses all extremely creative and delicious. Server was amazing. Wine was great as well. They were very accommodating to our gluten free needs. Expensive but worth it! Highly recommend!

We have been coming to Tantalus in January for the past 4 years, to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Our experience has always been really great. See you again, if not before, than in January 2021. Andrew & Lilian Weisz-Koves

Our waitress was fantastic. All the staff we dealt with were great but she was exceptional. Just a lovely way of dealing with people and gorgeous interaction with our 5 year old.

I don’t think the menu was inline with the season. Very autumnal flavours in the middle of summer just didn’t work for me! Otherwise a very welcoming place and a lovely setting
