My first visit in years - I realise I have been missing something special. Everything was first rate. The staff were smiling, efficient and lovely. The food was excellent - perfectly cooked bream. And excellent cocktails to kick the evening off. The dining room, with its long glass windows looking out onto the pretty garden is a wonderful space. I am definitely now a fan!

Weekday lunch in Fredrick's with old friends was a delight.
Excellent service, ambiance & food.
Excellent set menu for lunch & early evening as well as a la carte.
We have been coming to Frederick's since they opened. Alas, retirement for most of us means we don't get to this area so often but it is definitely on our map!

I love Frederick’s. Its such a lovely bright environment. The service was attentive today. The gnocchi were a bit if a disappointment with a few drops of creme over 5-6 grilled gnocchi but starters were excellent as was desert.

Very nice meal at Fredricks and the steak was excellent. However service is very stuffy (the bread service is excruciating) and there’s little atmosphere in the restaurant when it’s not busy (it wasn’t).

But overall, tasty food and will be back in the summer when the garden is open.

6 family members went for a celebratory meal on Saturday night, one of our party had been before and had recommended it. We had a round table in a corner, which was ideal for us. The food was good, service excellent and we had a very nice evening.

We find the atmosphere and style of this restaurant very agreeable. Tables are well spaced , so that you have the atmosphere of a busy restaurant but also privacy for conversation. Furnishings, tableware and linen etc first rate. Service is professional , food imaginative and well presented.

Waited for 30 minutes to get our drinks. It’s pissible that they were under staffed but there’s obviously a rule that more junior servers can’t do certain things like get the bill sorted, there seemed to be a lot of “dithering” from those in the grey shirts, this effected our experience.
Nice food, good value, lovely drinks... just waited too long

Made the most of a lovely Spring afternoon and allotted us an outside table which we had not requested. Had a stroll around the beautiful garden with one of the staff members who was very knowledgeable about the shrubs and trees. Lovely afternoon spent after probably over 25 years since my last visit .

The restaurant had a great ambience and the staff was friendly and attentive. We went for the 3-course menu that’s on offer all night on Mondays and Tuesdays. Loved the soup, but my meat of my main course didn’t have the temperature I requested which was a shame as the flavour was yummy. The brownie for desert was simply delicious! Also got an ice cream with a candle in it for my birthday, which was a lovely surprise. Overall very happy with my visit to Fredrick’s.

As usual Fredericks Anglo french cuisine was beautifully executed and delivered. Long may it reign.
Word of caution though , the bread and butter pudding needs some work . It could do with either brioche bread or quality stale white bread, good apricot jam , more fruit and a crystallised top.
A minor quibble in an always first class dinning experience . Thank you

Has the chef changed? Food was excellent and so much better than previous visits. Both mine and my wife’s food was without fault. To use a tired football expression, it was a game of two halves....a less than warm greeting from the lady manning “check in” who made little or no help to find us seating for a drink in the bar area and a bottle of champagne not chilled very well. After pointing this out the lady offered us an ice bucket to chill it bit still proceeded to pour a full glass of lukewarm champagne before we could object. The small things....

Moving to the restaurant was such a transformation. A proper welcome and we finally felt like we were in the fredericks we know so well. Service levels compared to the bar went through the roof and we had fabulous food and wine. We’ll be back (again) but maybe we won’t have a drink first next time!

Service was slow and when we mentioned that we waited at least 30 minutes between starter and main course we were told by the waitress that it’s Saturday night and they are very busy ! This was despite table next to us who came later being served . However the Sommelier was really brilliant ! Friendly and very informative .
