Regularly referred to as a "hidden gem" our menus are influenced by local seasonal ingredients but can have the flavours of India, Africa and Europe.

Serving lunch, afternoon tea & dinner in our downstairs restaurant, courtyard garden or in our smaller sea view dining room where we can cater for all dietary requirements.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. All four of us loved the food (including the delightful amuse bouche canapés in the garden), and the service was really friendly and helpful. And the bill was very reasonable for such a superb quality three-course meal.

The Empire Room is our favourite. Always wonderful food. Excellent service. Somewhere special for a meal with friends & family. Always the place for special occasions.

The food and service were good but a bit pricey. Also a bit lacking in atmosphere on the evening we visited.as a couple we probably would not go back but might consider it again for a group of friends.

Thoroughly enjoyable experience all round. Ate in the courtyard which was ideal for the hot weather. Lovely, attentive waitress and great food.

Dear Sirs I have long been a guest of the empire rooms. A lovely place that serves exceptional food. We can for dinner last night at 7pm for a table of four and ate a delicious meal. We each sampled each other’s meals and all agreed it was excellent. Tonight all four of us. My partner my friend and his partner have all been suffering with sickness and diarrhoea. Given we paid 200 for our meal you can imagine we are all pretty upset. We all thought it must have been something else but none of us had eaten the same thing from the same place in the day preceding. This has been very disappointing and not to say very sad as we all enjoyed our meals so much. I never leave feedback normally but felt that this was important information that you should be aware of. Thank you Kind regards Nick

Absolutely excellent on every level: fabulous food, beautiful room and atmosphere, top-notch, friendly service and all around stunning ambience. My daughter and I couldn't have picked a better place for my husband's birthday. We were all extremely pleased with the wonderful Empire Room and shall certainly dine there again!

My family and I found this hidden gem by accident but what a find. Having loved the look of the menu and the pictures of the dining area online, we were given a real treat and taken to the walled garden at the back where a table for the 5 of us had been set. We had the exquisite garden all to ourselves. The menu did not disappoint either. Everything we had was made with love and attention. None of us needed dessert but we couldn't resist and again, we were not disappointed. All the food was utterly divine and the service extraodinarily warm and welcoming. We will be returning as often as we can and recommending The Empire Room to everyone we know. Thank you to everyone who took care of us on our late lunch last Saturday.

What a great restaurant! The vegan menu keeps me coming back. It was a welcome surprise that vegan wine has been added to the wine list. The quality of the food and the service is marvellous. Well done to all of the team.

We all had such a lovely time. The food was amazing. I ordered from the vegan menu and have never enjoyed a meal out as much as at the Empire Room. My husband and mother said their food was cooked to perfection. I very rarely can have a dessert when eating out but enjoyed the warm banana cake, caramelised banana, vanilla ice cream and almonds. Only issue was accessibility as the stairs are very steep, so be aware.
