Really fantastic restaurant experience! From the service to the food, my parents and I thoroughly enjoyed our impromptu trip to Hencote this Sunday. We were treated to some brilliant cocktails to begin with, followed by 4 great courses from the set menu, in particular the roast beef, very tasty! During the meal there was a duo performing, which added a nice touch to the atmosphere. The views also were pretty spectacular as the sun set. Would definitely return to try out some of the a la carte menu. Highly recommended.

From the moment you turn into the private drive-way, you know you're about to enjoy your evening. A very warm welcome as soon as we arrived, followed by attentive service throughout the whole evening. Cocktails kicked-off our evening, followed by the five course menu. The food was truly amazing. Wonderfully presented with tastes leaving you wanting more, and we didn't want each of the five courses to end. Our meal was thoroughly enjoyed with Hencote's own Lifestyle Red wine. A gorgeous bottle of red we highly recommend. The atmosphere, live music and service gave us the experience we'd hoped. The perfect restaurant for lunch or that special occasion, or somewhere to appreciate fine food.

Food was delicious and atmosphere was very nice. However, it is quite overpriced e.g. small plates were as much as £14. Also we ordered steak for £21 each and they came on a board together, and the portions were quite small. Despite it being overpriced the service was second to none and the staff were very attentive.

We loved our meal and the actual restaurant had a lovely atmosphere. The customer service from the moment we arrived was brilliant and attentive! Our only thought was although the food was amazing quality we did feel the portion sizes were small for the cost. Particularly the starters!

At last Shopshire has a restaurant that can match the best in London. A different experience with excellent food, drink and service. Knowledgeable chef and staff. Look forward to coming again and trying other dishes.

Congratulations on a superb concept and stunning design. The menu is well thought out and most dishes were fine. The only criticism is that the wine list is not yet up to the food.

3rd visit and still love the venue and food is excellent but have to say the menu concept is still very confusing to us and it would appear some of the staff !! We wish you would get a menu that isn’t for sharing between the whole table

May be worth considering reducing the number of menus presented as whilst happy to look through, it just seemed way too complicated for a relaxed dinner out. Food was good, although the chicken satay could have been a bit warmer. Beef was lovely and done just as expected.The desserts were nice but I provided feedback on the night that the chocolate could have been one third of the size as it was very sweet. Strangely one of the wait staff introduced herself as being the staff for our table that evening but we actually were served by everyone else except her throughout the four courses! Not an issue in itself as the service was good (albeit our dessert course was delayed as a communication blip) but a little confusing. Wine is great. Not sure if we'll return in the very near future, it seems this restaurant has a few 'teething problems' and we may wait for these to be ironed out before coming back. However we may well visit the vineyard for the wine as it is very good. We wish the business well, it is a very nice venue, with some exciting ideas for food.

We have eaten at the View quite a few times now and it is simply one of the very best restaurants anywhere. The location, decor and style are unique. The staff are so friendly and attentive. We can’t wait for the summer when we can take advantage of the rest of the Estate. Thank you.

Throughly enjoyed our dining experience apart from the starter service . Our table of eight people were given the choice of two starters we all ordered then received only six and advised they should be shared extremely strange this was resolved only when a member of our party complained. The main meal and desert were extremely enjoyable and the chocolate we received with the bill was to die for I would recommend this be sold along side your wines..

The price of Sunday lunch has gone up since December last year but the portions are smaller. Needs to be better value or you will lose custom.

We were super impressed with the service at Hencote. We were watching the Hencote team in action and customer service is top priority. They delivered a perfect mix of service and giving us space to enjoy our food and drink. We had a beautifully served cocktail before being seated in the restaurant. The food was delicious. Even though it was fairly busy our table felt very private. I can’t wait to go back!

Service was impeccable and setting was amazing. However food was served to us very cold and took around an hour to come, which you wouldn’t expect when spending over £100 on 2 main meals and a few drinks. Disappointing and expensive food wise however staff are very good. Waiter was very professional and friendly however was told the lamb served would cost around £30 and ended up being £42 on our bill.
