Wonderful experience. Great service and I would highly recommend the wine pairings. They accommodated our special food requirements and it was too stuffy.

Excellent for a celebration or special treat meal. Starters were the standout - beautifully presented and really interesting. Great dinner and good service. (The hotel bar where we had drinks beforehand was very slow (perhaps due to new staff?))

Marvellous Saturday looks much menu. Food was a high standard. Staff are very attentive, although when you’re looking for a long lingering girlie catch-up over lunch, they’re maybe a bit too attentive- it’s all about balance. I don’t want to feel rushed and want to savour every course.

I can not express how wonderful the staff were during lunch and our time here. They were friendly, welcoming and made the whole experience a truly memorable one. .........And the food! We enjoyed the 5 course taster lunch, which was sublime - well thought out, beautifully presented (and introduced by the staff) and utterly delicious. A wonderful experience, thank you to all involved.

We went there yesterday to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The restaurant was very thoughtful by placing us in a quiet corner as we have a small baby and highchair was already there when we arrived. We had the 5 course menu and it was all beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. Waiting time between courses was just perfect and staff was very attentive. My husband’s dietary requirement was well catered for as well and service was excellent. We had a thoroughly enjoyable experience and would highly recommend the restaurant.

We thoroughly enjoyed everything about our visit to Alyn Williams, although we did ask after a couple of courses if things could be slowed down. This was implemented with no fuss

We loved meeting Alyn & the Head Chef. And the sommelier Manuela & Konstantinos were incredibly informative & took time to answer additional questions we had.

My only negative comment, is partially directed at myself as well. I was stunned to learn my glass of champagne cost £28. I should have checked because I felt I was still enjoying when the first course wine arrived

I arrived last Friday evening and was immediately told that there were only two choices available: the vegetarian tasting menu, and the non-vegetarian tasting menu. Nobody had informed me of this when I made my telephone booking and consequently I felt unable - and neither did I wish - to eat all the food on each of these menus. Consequently, I had two courses from the tasting menu, both very well cooked indeed, but it was not what I would have chosen. For this I was charged £70. My guest and I felt that this was "taking liberties". Soup and a small piece of meat. Seventy pounds? Come on!
I have dined at this restaurant in the past, on many occasions, and was delighted to order from an a la carte menu. Had only someone told me that the a la carte menu didn't exist on a Friday evening I should have gone somewhere else.
Clearly an oversight by whoever took my booking led to a dissatisfied and overpriced evening.
Do you really care?
LM.

This was the second time to enjoy Alyn Williams food creations, he surpassed his previous and created a unique menu of delights. Was to expensive? a little, but worth every penny from the delight of the food, the attention of the staff, the ambience of the restaurant to the happiness of my family enjoying their best meal/experience they have ever had.

We tried a 5 course tasting menu. They lost a star on food, coz the main dishes were a bit on the salty side. Maybe it’s a personal preference. But overall the food was great. Pariticularly impressed by the pre-dessert and the dessert. Bravo to the chef and his crew. Waiters were also very friendly and excellent in all aspects. Will definitely recommend to friends

Absolutely outstanding. We went for 5 course set menu experience which was amazing value for money, spectacular dishes, wonderful presentation, and marvelous prosecco. We are definitely coming back. SOme dishes (like green juice/soup with green beans in the middle of it) were simply work of art. There were 3 of us with all the same feedback.

We had a wonderful dining experience at Alyn Williams.
The 5 course surprise menu is our favourite as it always includes some new dishes.
This time the pea starter stood out bringing variations of the humble pea together in a tantalising way.
The dessert surprised with a slightly sour take on a churro (yum yum) which worked really well.
Service, especially by Florian and Viktoria, was excellent with their unobtrusive attentive- and friendliness ... and we got to meet the kitchen team under Josef working hard behind the scenes.
Thank you for a wonderful evening!

A lunch outing opting for the Open Table five course Du Jour tasting menu with the matching wines. (The set price included water, tea/coffee and petit fours). For the first and desert courses you had a choice from two, the others were set. We arrived an hour earlier, not a problem. Good table spacing, very comfortable. Cuisine: Modern British. Presentation, service and the quality of the food all very good. The amuse-bouche and bread offered were excellent The wines served we would never have chosen ourselves, complimenting the food superbly. To complete the experience we were offered the opportunity to visit the kitchen , meet Chef. A very relaxed, enjoyable lunch.
