One word: OUTSTANDING. From the very moment we walked into Dinner until our departure, we knew we werre in for a treat and the experience was exactly that. Our cocktails were absolutely perfectly prepared, and so was the meal that followed. The presentation of historical English recipes, ranging from what one might have in the 1300's to the mid-19th century, was absolutely terrific and the thoroughly original and modern interpretations gave an entirely different perspective of the dishes on offer. Everything was an utter delight. What a truly lovely and special way to celebrate our anniversary!!

I went to Dinner with a friend and my 10 year old son to celebrate both their birthdays. The service was attentive and friendly. The food was beautifully presented and perfectly cooked. A fun menu with fascinating inspiration from historical recipes. Great cocktails too.

Faultless service, food that was not far from perfection - couldn't fault it in fact. Had the bone marrow starter, rib of beef for two and the salted caramel ice cream thingy which was spectacular! Oh and the 1941 Armagnac was a joy!

Dinner for 6 at 7pm celebrating two birthdays.
Service started off perfect, sadly as the meal progressed towards dessert we were on the verge of being invisible, which was very disappointing as we have all been looking forward to this visit.

On a high note, the food great!
Highly recommend meat fruit, chicken oysters, spiced pigeon, powdered duck breast and tipsy cake! (Avoid brown bread ice cream and spring tart)

This was a truly wonderful and special dining experience! The food is so creative, and the concept of taking inspiration from historical dishes and then putting a modern twist on them is both intriguing and delicious. The service was impeccable, and the staff is so knowledgeable about the food, the history, and the intricate preparations. We had the bone marrow and frogs legs appetizers, the prime rib for two, and tableside ice cream made with liquid nitrogen. Great custom cocktails, as well. Absolutely worth the money; so memorable and SO delicious!

The food was great as you would expect from any Heston Blumenthal restaurant. The problem is the place. As it is in a hotel it feels that many people are treating this as a normal experience rather than something special. We went to celebrate a birthday. They asked whose birthday it was which meant no surprise when the plate with happy birthday appeared. It wasn’t intimate, it was noisy. So perhaps lunch would be better as most people would be going for the food and guests who are not would be there for business.

After seeing Heston Blumenthal's food on various cooking show, it was a pleasure actually tasting the food, not just watching. The meat fruit is a must to try and so is the tipsy cake. Bloody fantastic food!!

Absolutely amazing!

I'm due to have neck radiotherapy to cure early stage cancer and one of the side-effects is the loss of taste. Having eaten here before, it was an easy choice to return. The service was professional and very friendly., and the food was just fantastic!

Anthony even gave us a tour of the Chef's Table and kitchen which was another added bonus, and shows the effort to make everything so enjoyable.

Thank you and we will be back to celebrate!

We had an amazing time at Dinner by Heston; the food was delicious, well-presented, and with great flavour combinations.

The service from the front of house team was nothing less than perfect; we were there to celebrate a birthday, and they made sure that it was a very special occasion for us.

Sadly it was the worst food I have had in any good restaurant and I have dined in most of the good restaurants! The powdered duck was most ordinary as was the tipsy cake. The service was ok but the gap between pur starter and main was too long.

For a relaxed fine dining experience this restaurant is perfect. The staff were all super friendly and atmosphere very relaxed. The food was excellent. The wine list is extensive, my only negative would be there aren’t many lower cost wine options. This would not however put me off going again.

This was a fantastic experience. The food was exceptional, beautifully plated and very tasty. We were in awe of the wine menu but the sommelier helped choose a bottle that worked perfectly with our meal. As other reviewers have noted, the meat fruit appetizer is incredible. The recipe is on the internet, but our efforts to duplicate it fell a bit short. Our entrees were perfectly prepared - the roast chicken is simple but delicious. The chocolate bar for dessert was a good choice, and the chef's chocolate ganache/caraway shortbread combo was very good as well. Thoroughly enjoyed our meal here.

Food and service were generally superb as usual. I had my standard order (salamagundy, powdered duck and tipsy cake), accompanied by my preferred wine (Malagousia, a delightful fruity Greek white). My guests had the sherried scallops, cod in cider, and sambocade, and the savoury porridge (vegetarian version), rice and flesh (vegetarian version) and brown bread ice cream. Only minor issue was that the mashed potato was not on the menu, and the buttered Pink Fir potatoes were oversalted).

Stunning food, interesting history behind the menu which adds to the sense of occasion. Thought the dining room and bar were great spaces and loved looking in to the busy, yet calm and tidy kitchen (lesson to self who destroys the kitchen daily!). Thought the staff were all lovely - attentive, enthusiastic and warm. Look forward to returning.
