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.

My mum had lunch on Mothering Sunday and it was lovely, the waitresses were very attentive without being over the top. The restaurant is cosy and it's like being in a private house. Loved it will definitely be back.

It was our first time to visit the Empire Rooms, and I will say that the food was truly amazing on every course that we had, service was with a smile and the recommendations came were not wrong, yes it was the most expensive I have ever spent on a dinner, but it was worth it to see the smiles the food delivered, very much recommend

We had an amazing time celebrating my Dads 90th Birthday. The whole experience was fantastic, the table, the food, the service. We had such a lovely time, I can’t recommend it enough. Thank you to all at the Empire Rooms.

We love the Empire room. Due to busy lives we can’t always make when we want to and as a result a voucher that we received for Christmas went out of date. Craig and his team were very helpful and extended the date for us. Our server was very helpful and made our children feel welcome, which is important to us. The food was amazing and delcious as always. Thank you Empire room

Really missed the option of mussels in wine. The range of starters was lovely but nothing really appealed on the main courses.

Very good value for money but a bit lacking in atmosphere. We waited a long time for our food which was delicious when it arrived. TheProsecco was poured before all the guests arrived and not at the table which I don't think is correct but we had a lovely time and will come again.

I booked to take friends for a quiet sunday lunch as we've been to the Empire Rooms before. However, there was a large birthday lunch and we couldn't hear ourselves think let alone talk. I don't have a problem with people being loud and enjoying themselves but I wish I had been told there was a large party and I probably would have booked a different day. I cannot fault the excellent food and superb service that we had. We will return.
