Beautiful space and lovely atmosphere even though it was last day before Tier 3. Waitress helpful and service smooth. My chowder was a bit uninspiring, lacking clear flavours, though others food was good and pudding excellent. Would very much come back again and recommend it to others

This was the first time we had visited Valpy Street abs we loved it. Although very quiet due to Covid restrictions the atmosphere was really nice. A nice cosy table. I loved the decor. The food was first class. Beautiful cooked and lots of it. Service was also perfect. Very friendly and courteous staff. Not sure I csn find any fault ! Thank you.

Just a good all round dining experience with a very decent wine list and always at least a couple of things on the menu I want to have. Bring back the duck cassoulet, my favourite.

We had a fun evening, and made the most of it with lockdown on the way. The food was good (esp the black pudding scotch egg starter) and the atmosphere was lively (like pre-Covid times). The waiting staff were lovely but seemed overwhelmed at times. Unfortunately, the social distancing/Covid precautions felt a bit limited compared to other restaurants I’ve been to recently and I think that would put me off going back for a while.
