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.

Absolutely fantastic (food and service)! Every dish on the tasting menu was delicious. Sensibly priced wine very much appreciated. All four of us found the meal very special. Thanks!

We had high expectations of our first visit based on reviews we had read, and reading the menu! We were not disappointed. Staff could not have been more friendly and helpful, including making cocktails that were not in the list. And of course the food was superb. We look forward to a return visit next time we are on the island.

Lunchtime Seasonal Menu is excellent value. Superb imaginative food professionally prepared and served by a well drilled team. Particularly impressive as Robert was'nt in the kitchen.

The best meal out we've had on the island since moving here five years ago. Would recommend Thompsons to anyone who enjoys excellently prepared and presented food, so delicious.

Having eaten at your restaurant quite a few times this is the first time I have felt the need to give a negative feedback. The Rum Baba was dry and needed more taste. Otherwise every meal we have eaten in your restaurant has been excellent. My wife is Gluten and Dairy intolerant and you always serve her excellent dishes.

Once again we had a wonderful evening with you. Everything, from front of house, through waitress service to the food itself was outstanding. I have never eaten in a more welcoming restaurant.....everyone was so friendly and helpful.

This is our third consecutive New Years Eve meal at the restaurant. Compared to previous years the starter and main courses were once again good, but the 'Nostalgia' desserts were a disappointment, being too sweet for our tastes.

We were shocked we managed to get in at such short notice. The kids meal and going out of your way was very much appreciated. Your sommelier was outstanding and the wine choices were fantastic. We have lower marks for atmosphere as upstairs felt a little sterile. Value for money a little lower also as one of the party didn't enjoy as much of the food as the rest.
