Love the ease of the online booking system. Restaurant was delicious as always and we all enjoyed our meals. Highlight was the beetroot sorbet which was the amuse-bouche. Delicious!

Our waiter, Michael was very laid back and while other service staff were rushed off their feet - he seemed to get others to help. The meal was excellent so congratulations to the team on an another superb Burns Night.

Another great Christmas Lunch at Taste. The food was really tasty and served quickly and on time. Our only small niggle was that the soup wasn't very warm. We'll certainly be booking again next year
