Our food was incredible and the whole experience was a treat. We were just a little disappointed at the flavour and quality of the lamb, hAving bred our own Pedigree Southdown Lamb in the past and knowing that there are local producers close by it is something we are quite passionate about. Thank you for a fantastic evening and we will definitely be coming again.

It was a little quiet when we dined, however, the food and service was very good. Such a great experience and looking forward to trying some new dishes. The beetroot dish could have been a little more exciting. Was good to meet the chef before we left.

Really great midweek meal, love the wine at cost price on a Weds night - we'll be back for that! Shame it wasn't a bit busier, deserves to be. Only piece of feedback would relate to lack of carbs on main course, as part of a tasting menu this works but if having test plates only may leave some hungry. Perhaps a couple of side dish options would be good?

As newbies to Twenty Six I have to say we weren’t disappointed. The food was delicious and although we had the set 5 courses they were accommodating in letting me swap a goats cheese dish which I wouldn’t have liked for something else. Everything was seasonal, a great combination of flavours and cooked to perfection. The drinks menu offered some interesting options too. The lovely chap looking after us was fantastic; he was friendly and welcoming without being overbearing and he took the time to explain the menu, wine and each dish to us carefully. Our visit was refreshingly good value too for a restaurant of this standard, (£2.50 for good coffee in a restaurant is a bargain in my book). Will definitely be visiting again and recommending to friends 🙂

Im not a big eater....so I opted for the 5 course menu. Im sorry to tell you that I left your restaurant hungry. All the food was very nice, but the portions were just too small.

I had the 8 course test menu - each one seriously good but the trout was exceptional. Look forward to my second visit in August with the new menu.

Really super meal/drinks/ambiance and the waiter made our first experience in the restaurant superb. He had fantastic knowledge of the food/drinks and maintained complete etiquette and professionalism despite a busy evening in the restaurant. We will be back.

We really enjoyed Twenty Six, however we found that some of the courses lacked seasoning and flavour, which was a real shame as there was so much potential. The staff were very friendly and attentive and it was a lovely warm atmosphere in there, we just wish the food had the wow factor...

Great creative food. Only issue is frequency of menu change as we had exactly the same dishes on a previous visit.

Thank you for a wonderful birthday meal! The 8 course tasting menu was beautiful and the trout, halibut and pigeon were definitely the stars of the show! Great atmosphere and excellent service. See you again very soon.

Amazing culinary delight, not your normal dinner out. Draw the curtains pull down the blinds and you are transptred to an alpine lodge with divine food and wine. Doesn’t get better then that

We thoroughly enjoyed the 5 course tasting menu, which was full of surprises. The first 2 courses could have been hotter.

Food very good, unfortunately no other diners so no atmosphere. The restaurant was very cold. Service was ok....info on each dish would have been nice.
