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.

Great food and friendly service. Not cheap but let’s not forget this is food of the highest quality cooked to perfection. A truly memorable evening and the highlight of my stay on the island.

This was our first visit..but it won't be the last! The best fine dining experience in UK for a long time. The tasting menu with paired wines was fab. Difficult to find a favourite course. I really lived the cuttlefish.

We attended the Dessert Lovers course followed by lunch. The course was relaxed and informative and great to see the interaction with the kitchen team. Lunch was superb. Great selection from 3 course menu with everything cooked and presented beautifully. Love the personal cutlery drawers at the tables. Something different but done well that doesn't detract from the food. Really relaxed atmosphere, perfect for all occasions. Can't wait to come back again. A reason to come over to the Island and visit my family more.

Consistently good and by far, the best restaurant on the island. The food, staff, atmosphere, everything is of the highest order and we are yet to be disappointed by anything. We have tried lots of places on the island but we keep coming back to Thompsons time and time again. Simply brilliant.

Thompson's did a fine job of accommodating our party of 14 : seated with a good view of the open kitchen Robert came out to welcome us and checked regularly to see that we were enjoying our evening ... which was a nice touch. We had a 3 course menu with a choice of 3 dishes per course : a meat, fish and vegetarian : so something for everyone. Generally the food was good, seasonal,tasty and well presented ... the only mis-step being the pork cheek starter which was a little heavy to begin a meal with and lacked seasoning. The main courses were delicious as were all the desserts. Good value for money.

Another fantastic experience at the Restaurant. Love to come and treat ourselves to the Lunch Menu as our chance to experience some fine dining. Lovely food and really well explained when delivered to our table. The lamb main was a taste explosion and our favourite dish. Great variety of drinks available too, would highly recommend and look forward to returning in the future.

Excellent food, wine and service - although it would be much appreciated if the waiters would slow down their explaining a bit for non-native guests ;-)
