Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at North House for our friends 30th birthday - one of the party is an expectant mother and the wonderful head chef Lee walked us through her various options at the table and was very accommodating. There were tonnes of great wines to choose from for the rest of us and I'd absolutely recommend the cote de boeuf for main.

Our party of 8 had a very enjoyable evening with excellent food and efficient service. We particularly liked our waitress who was friendly and efficient. At the time of booking we requested a square table rather than long and was advised that this would be checked and they would get back to us .... which did not happen. Not with standing this, we shall be back before long, but with a smaller group,

Everything good , you have also got lovely staff , but your waiters are somewhat forgetful with regards certain items. I asked for more gravy with my roast but it was forgotten also some small spoons to use in the Horse Radish & Mustard rather than dipping your knife in to them , which then ruins it and it cannot be used to serve again to other customers. We had to ask for the desert menu and then we had to call the waiter over to place an order when they were standing around, not good. It didn’t seem as though there was a Maitre’d anywhere controlling the service !

Loved the bath in the room. The bedroom was classic with good touches like fresh lemon and fresh milk. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

We were almost put off by some of the mixed reviews on Tripadvisor. I am so glad we weren’t, because we had a wonderful evening. The ambience and decor were perfect, the menu extremely tempting, and there were lovely choices for the two vegetarians that were with us. Service was excellent, not intrusive at all, but there when it was needed. All in all a perfect evening and we shall look forward to coming back.

Boxing Day is I'm sure a bit tricky and why so much of the a la carte menu was not available.. but sadly we did not have a great experience at your restaurant. There were only 3 tables at lunch time, a 2, a 4 and us 7... And there seemed to be plenty of staff working. The starters where disappointing. The scallops were so terribly small. The smallest I've ever seen, so small in fact they looked like part of a normal sized scallop cut up... The 3 small pieces I had would struggle to account for one decent sized scallop. The specials of the day where on the board but not priced up... I had the veal special which looked good but arrived stone cold. No one came to check how we were doing, and suddenly there was no one in the dining room until all the others in our party had finished. When the coffee eventually came they too where only just warm... We noticed food on the wall,and at the other end of our table we noticed the table wasn't very clean... So in the end a very disappointing outing for us. The manager did apologise and did take some deserts and coffee's off the bill... which was appreciated, but I wouldn't go again or recommend this place to anyone. The catering college students in Newport do a much better job, and for a lot less... but they are only open on a Thursday night - but worth it...

This was our second New Year visit to North House and we were even more impressed this time. Lovely architecture and lovely people and very good food and drink. Friendly greeting and service (including welcome to our dogs ) was exceptional. Bar and restaurant staff fun and professional. Food very good. Can’t wait to come back much sooner this time x

A wonderful place with a great team making North House one of the best places we have ever had the pleasure of staying at. Attention to details and a permanently happy atmosphere combined with top quality rooms and food mean we will definitely come back.

Unfortunately North House has lost it’s edge from the fantastic restaurant it was when it first opened. The Service doesn’t match the price tag with lots of minor mistakes dulling the experience. With the exception of the Cote Du Boeuf the food was average with the quote of the night being, “you’d get a better burger in weatherspoons”. I really hope North House gets the shake up it deserves as it was and could again be the best restaurant on the Island.

You did a very good job in accommodating our large, impromptu dinner party. So, overall, we are very happy with everything. The rooms, including the private dining room, are lovely, especially at this time of year. So, top marks for ambiance. Overall, the staff were good too. Attentive, unobtrusive, effective. The food, literally, went down very well. The slow pork was very good; the veal, less so, but not bad. The wine list is interesting; and not over priced. There were a few slips: our drinks order was forgotten, until we reminded the barman (after 10 mins waiting); one of us was given the wrong menu; we saw no bread at the table; we should have been “managed” into the ante-room for drinks rather than being left to work it out - our group in the bar was cramped and overwhelming for the other people there. These may seem to be picky points, but you seem to aspire to greatness, so it’s the details that will get you there.

Thank you so much for a great family lunch in the Library.....your team were so careful and considerate especially with festive fair and a member of the party having a server allergy. We really enjoyed ourselves and will be back for more lunches and next years pre - christmas family lunch.
