The food was lovely but for those of us that had the tartlet yo start is was very disappointing as this was on a bread and the portion was so small. The main meal portion was enough for myself but some of the party didn’t think they were big enough portions but we did all agree the food was very nice !

Had a wonderful evening catching up with a friend. Food was excellent, and even though it was the Christmas Menu, the choices were thoughtful and a bit different, and beautifully presented. The bar staff were great, you really felt they had time for you, and the restaurant staff were friendly, professional and efficient. Would definitely book again, for whatever occasion!

I recently attended a vegan night at The Palfrey and it was delicious (even my carnivorous boyfriend was swayed to enjoyed a plant based feast)! We both had cauliflower 'wings' with BBQ sauce to start. There were probably the stand out but we followed them up with mains of smoked plantain jerk curry and butternut squash mac and cheese then sticky toffee pudding and banana bread with banana sorbet and toffee sauce. Service from the offset was great and the evening was fully booked so the atmosphere was buzzing. We'll definitely be looking to visit again!

Overall a nice meal in an ambient and busy restaurant. We didn’t realise it was vegan night but the food was good.

Went for the vegan night. Staff were really friendly and helpful, even the ones just walking past the table. Sweets were a thoughtful and much appreciated added touch. Struggled to pick off the vegan menu! We will be back

We both thoroughly enjoyed the evening of vegan food. The menu was imaginative, the food was well cooked, delicious and the service faultless. We enjoyed wines, by the glass, to compliment the dishes and the overall value was excellent. Definitely a place to return to and a sincere approach was taken in creating a first class vegan dining experience. Thanks
