About Thompson's

Chef Robert Thompson’s style has always been a congenial one: his menus have remained brief and to the point, his style of cooking respectful of the old classics, yet mindful of a modern dining trend that values, above all, lightness and freshness, only serving dishes that you can imagine he would enjoy eating himself. He always looks no further than the producers outside his front door.

Main course was the star of the show on the tasting menu along with the cuttlefish tagliatelle

We had a lovely evening celebrating my husband's birthday. We had the taster menu and really enjoyed it. All of our party of eight enjoyed choosing their cutlery from their own table drawer.

Everything was perfect. My only critism would be that the benches aren't comfortable for a three course meal. Will be back though.

The staff were great. Love the choice of gins. The food was delicious. The only part I wasn’t sure on was the sauce for the cuttlefish tagliatelle. I didn’t have all the right cutlery in my drawer (my husband had a sharp knife for the lamb for example). Last time we sat downstairs but upstairs was lacking in atmosphere a little. Overall it was a great experience and we will definitely return

Fabulous dining experience as always. The front of house staff were particularly welcoming and helpful. Very impressed have willing the kitchen is to accommodate dislikes and allergies by tweaking the dishes. I think our Canadian friends were very impressed.

An outstanding evening, great staff, lovely atmosphere, all in all a wonderful place to have my birthday meal. I’ve been to many Michelin star restaurants and would struggle to recommend any of the others as better than Thompsons

It is very unusual for the standard of a restaurant to be as good when the boss isn’t on the premises but this was the case on Wednesday when we had a wonderful meal with impeccable service. Well done to all the staff and to Robert, who has trained them so well.

We enjoy the fact that the menu is different and full of interest every time we eat here - which is fairly regularly. The warm welcome and excellent service enhances the experience and outstanding food.

We had an absolutely lovely time and the staff was very accommodating. We all ordered the tasting menu, but none of us eats red meat . . . the server said this was not a problem and allowed us to substitute another dish (monkfish) for the lamb. We also had a limited amount of time (2 hours) because of limited taxi availability and the staff was able to serve us quickly (but not in a rushed manner) and we were out the door in the exact amount of time. It was great.

Extremely tasty food beautifully cooked with intense flavours. Tiny point, when courses were served the description of food was rushed and had to ask for repeat. Fabulous experience. Thanks to all

Some billing hiccups on the night we attended, not just for our table, and we felt the desserts should be the finale to the wonderful meal, but they fell flat for us. However the main courses were phenomenal and the little in between touches a lovely treat. Definitely recommending, definitely returning, we had a wonderful evening.

Robert Thompson and his entire team are consistently amazing, I have visited several times over the past year to dine and recently enjoyed a class "Pasta Perfecto" which was both very informative and fun. This was followed with the most superb three course meal, showcasing the techniques we had learnt using local fresh and foraged produce which was simply divine. Cannot wait to return again to dine and to try the recipes out at home very soon!

Excellent meal and service. 'Balance' comes to mind. Perfect balance of flavours in the food. Matching balance from the recommended wines. Service balancing well the need to engage with the desire not to interrupt. Very impressed.
