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.

Very much enjoyed our wedding anniversary lunch at Thompson's; all extremely good with a lovely relaxed atmosphere. We all loved the little drawers of cutlery that were part of the table, no 'clutter' on the table! You also catered well for our lactose intolerant member of the party... Well done, we will be back.

We've eaten here quiet a few times now, and it has always been exceptionally good food, with equally exceptional but relaxed service. We've dined A La Carte and Taster menus, and my partner has also tried the teaching sessions, but my favourite for value is the Lunch set menu.

The food was amazing. I had a taster menu with the wine flight. Every dish was presented to the highest standard by what is clearly a talented team - there were some amazing flavours and the ingredients tasted really fresh. The wines chosen complimented each course really well with some interesting choices. I could not fault it and we really enjoyed our evening.

We had a really enjoyable evening and felt like everyone in the restaurant engaged with us in some way which is unique in itself. My only feedback would be for the chefs to have a bit more personality and time when they deliver the dishes. While the food was top quality and delicious, the chefs all seemed to ramble of very quickly the ingredients in the dish we were about to eat. There was no time left to ask any questions as they would drop the dish and run. I would probably rather have had our waitress or waiter deliver the dish and patiently let us ask more questions if we had them, I suppose the chefs were too rushed and busy in the kitchen to deliver this effectively. Dessert was delicious - but it was far too big at the end of degustation.

It was an absolute experience and a good value for the money. The team was exceptionally nice. I can’t rate the food and drinks enough, mind blowing.! We totally enjoyed ourselves and would be visiting again in the near future.

Another memorable dinner at Thompson's. Delicious food combined with a well matched glass of wine (Pecorino). Highly recommended. Everything tasted fresh....

Definitely the best food on the island. Delightful to watch the chefs at work while eating. Personal attention from Robert in selection of his unusual wines.

I love visiting Thompson’s... it is always a treat - either with girlfriends for lunch, or my husband for dinner. We also really enjoyed our butchery school last September. Although initially disappointed that we were butchering chicken, I have used everything that I learned many times over. Looking forward to the next visit!

Really good and enjoyable experience. Service was generally good but some of the staff were lacking confidence when describing the meal served and I doubted whether their knowledge of the dish was at the level that you expect it to be. Very positive that the owner recommended an alternative wine based on our food choice, which was delicious. We weren’t briefed on the cutlery situation and where to find it but quickly corrected when we asked. Overall a very nice way to spend a cold and wet January afternoon on the island. We’ll be back.
