Genuinely one of the best restaurants I've been to in the world. We had the 5 course taster menu on Valentines Evening and the food was absolutely stunning. The atmosphere and the candlelit table with a rose were lovely. The live pianist was an amazing touch. The waiter was around our tables every few minutes and we were treat really well. The cocktails and wine were nice. The meal and drinks cost around £250 but we felt we had value for money. 10/10 from us :)

We went for Sunday lunch and the food was lovely however, I would have liked a traditional Sunday roast but there was only beef or Lamb and I don’t eat red meat. It would have been nice to have a chicken option. I ended up with a fish dish.

Very average, poor seating.

Asked for some advice on the wine choice, ‘White or red’, no idea.

Then the white we got was warm, parked 5 yards away so you had to wait to top your own glass up, with the warm bottle.

Food so slow, so poor for what you expect.

Bill comes ‘do you want to pay the £25 service charge, it is optional’

I said ‘if you believe it’s deserved, I’ll let you choose’

Waitress said pretty much, ok I’ll put it on....

Comically poor.

A fantastic Sunday lunch for our anniversary. The food was great and the service was excellent. We were offered some prosecco free of charge to celebrate our special day. We also received a treat for dessert. Both were gratefully received. The Sunday roast was particularly good - we both had roast beef. I would definitely recommend the restaurant and we will visit again. Thank you

It was our wedding anniversary, I hadn’t mentioned that when I booked.
The receptionist asked why we were dining. I said it was our 30 wedding anniversary.
We were shown to the table, where I ordered drinks. They came and along with them were two glasses of complimentary champagne, this was a lovely surprise.
We ordered our food and waited.
The food was fabulous, the service was fantastic, nothing was too much trouble for them. When the bill came, I was asked if I was paying the service charge, rather than assuming it would be paid, which I thought was another nice gesture.
Overall a wonderful experience I would recommend to anyone to give it a try.
Well done to all the staff and management at the Crafthouse, thank you.

This isn’t an everyday restaurant but the meal was a special occasion and the experience was very much special. The service from entering was exceptional and second to none! Little things like not being asked who is having what meal and the server knowing who is having what dish goes a long way. Our drinks where never left dry nor did we have to prompt to order more drinks, the service was seamless. The food again was outstanding and there is much more else to say other than that. Thank you for truly wonderful experience.

Gorgeous restaurant with lovely views, smart and welcoming. We had a couple of issues with the cooking of the steaks, but this was quickly ammended and we were not charged. Superb service, delicious desserts and the mini lemon friands were to die for, a great evening out!

Went to CraftHouse for Graduation. Never had been before but had heard good things... And we're not disappointed. The restaurant is very nicely decorated. We were seated straight with water arriving shortly after. The staff were great, knowledgeable and friendly. The food was delicious though a little on the small side. All in all a great experience, with great food and great staff. Will be back!

Having dined at Crafthouse some years ago when it was under the direction of the original Exec Chef Lee who opened the restaurant I was looking forward to another experience for my daughters graduation. Unfortunately my return visit didn't live up to my expectations. Personally I think the the restaurant's focus (in conjunction with Angelic's rooftop bar above) is more in the direction on a "Bar with Food" rather than a Restaurant. The setting & surroundings are fabulous but I think the dining experience needs improvement.

Overall, very good. Both mine and fellow diner’s rib eye steaks were a little on the sinewy-side. Service very attentive if felt a touch over eager to charge the glasses with wine/water...perhaps being a little harsh.

Something missing

We have eaten here many times before and loved it. I wonder if it has changed hands and last night it just wasn’t the usual experience.

We were sat at a nice table with a view. My daughter went to the loo and my wife went to check out coats (no one offered to take them) but the waitress still came over and distributed menus and started going through what wasn’t available on the menu even though there was only myself sat down.

The menu has changed so that sharing dishes (£85 beef) no longer comes which a couple of side dishes and sauce so these have to be ordered separately.

We ordered the Côté de beef medium rare and a separate steak rare.

Starters were good and large.

The main course came after a long time and the rare steak was cooked correctly but stone cold and the core de beef was cooked right through with not a bit of pink in site (in my opinion well done rather than medium rare).

I think standards at this restaurant are slipping and probably will try somewhere else next time we want an expensive steak meal

This is a favourite venue for a special lunch with girlfriends. We go every three months or so and the fixed price lunch menu is always different and excellent value. The dishes are all beautifully presented and just that little bit out of the ordinary. Never been disappointed.
The service is always excellent - but not overpowering or over attentive.
Wish we could find more places like this!
