Trying to give you the Michelin style feel but unfortunately a bit hit and miss. Weetabix ice cream desert sounded edgy, but unappealing. Bream over salted and black sticks blue cheese not much bigger than a Dairy Lea slice. Pear in Desset could have been baked but was served raw. Needs a slightly broader menu in order to encourage guests to visit. Very quiet for a Saturday night with only 4 covers. Loved the intimacy of a small restaurant, nice setting and glimpses of great cooking, but probably wouldn’t return for a while. I hope they review the menu and really nail the food as this could be a very special restaurant.

Our first visit to the Twenty Six and we loved the brunch, especially the chocolate pancakes! Service was great-dealt with my pregnancy related dietary requirements without any fuss. Really cozy with the log burner on the go. We will be returning!

It was our first visit to this restaurant, A really nice atmosphere and the food and wine offerings were excellent. One small suggestion - the duck could have been less pink for the two people on our table, but still very good. The service was impeccable.

Excellent food, wine and service. I must say I was disappointed at the loss of the tasting menu, but the new menu is very good.

We sat at the table by the window and it was really cold! The cold air from under the door curtain was freezing on ankles and the cold draught from the piping gaps on the wall froze the upper body! The manager was most sympathetic but could not resolve that issue for us. The food was superb and we would probably go again - not in the winter though or we would know to request a different table when booking.

Fantastic food. It was an absolute pleasure to have a meal here with friends. They have not visited your restaurants before and were really happy after we left so I am sure they will return. The staff were so good, they are the perfect amount of attentive, and friendly. Atmosphere is warm and casual enough to allow you to relax and enjoy the evening and the food, but at the same time you know you are somewhere a bit special. We have never had a bad experience with you and your new chef has brought some interesting new concepts to the menu. The artichoke desert although unusual was delicious. I probably wouldn't have chosen this anywhere else, but was confident on it being good after two previous excellent courses. The 26 is an absolute pleasure to visit, and we will always reserve it for special occasions.

The food was absolutely delicious and despite a small menu it was hard to choose! Presentation was also beautiful. The service was perfect and the mother’s ruin gin should be available to buy! Already looking forward to our next visit. Thank you for a perfect evening.

You used to offer an amuse bouche but not any more? Also no more fixed price menus, only a la carte. There were only two tables occupied on a Thursday night, which felt a shame because we love this place. As a result we were done and dusted in just over an hour which made the evening feel rushed.

Thank you for another great evening at The Twenty Six. We are really enjoying the subtly different approach of the new Aussie chef. Fantastic flavours, personal service and great wine as always.
