    We had a table for three and each went for the 3 course lunch menu. The options were excellent and we all found something to suit our palates. The service was attentive and very welcoming. We had a bottle of Shiraz which was lovely, even the party member who didn't drink wine often enjoyed the bottle. Price wise I felt for the quality of food the price was excellent. I've been to Number 16 a number of times over the years and it has never disappointed. Excellent.

    No 16 was excellent - delicious food and great service provided by the staff. All our dishes were cooked and presented to a very high standard - scallops were rerr! All main courses were superb, thanks for a lovely evening at No 16 and will definitely return to try other dishes. A wee gem of a restaurant!

    Number 16 is a wee gem of a place. I was there with three friends and we all loved what we had - the food was outstanding. All the staff were lovely - friendly and attentive. It's nice and cosy inside. It's a bit on the expensive side, however the food is well worth it. Visit, you won't be disappointed!

    The restaurant is small and we were given a small table in a corner upstairs. They must have heard us say it was too small (I'm 190cm), they re-laid a larger table recently vacated and moved us without us having to say anything more. We shared a starter and dessert and both had the duck for main course. All three dishes were delicious. The wine was sensibly priced; they knew the wine list well and gave us a sample for an alternative they suggested to the one we were thinking of. Couldn't fault anything and we had a great evening there.

    Our first visit to No. 16 as we received a gift voucher. Very impressed with the friendly welcome and service, and the food was simply wonderful, not even a mouthful had anything wrong with it. Although it’s a small restaurant we didn’t feel cramped or overlooked. Would love to come back soon.

    No 16 rarely fails to excel, and on this occasion it excelled itself. Food was fabulous. Highlights, the chicken dish and its contrasting sauces, and the sponge pudding. Service was great and there were lots of little touches - the crockery, the balsamic, the pot of wine that turned an excellent meal into a memorable occasion. Thank you.

    Terrific meal at number 16. Scallops and sea bass starters both unusual and really nicely cooked Duck main delicious and tender. Himself seemed to enjoy the cod. No e bottle of wine to go with it. Dessert fantastic-mine the baba with calvados. Not sure what himself had it was scoffed quickly with appreciative comments Maybe would have liked to be offered another roll at the start- table at 8lm which is late for us and were rather hungry and polished off rolls before the starters arrived.

    Food was good but overpriced. Very congested place most importantly service is poor (staff is not at all pleasing) We got late for the booking and we informed the restaurant. The lady empathised due to road works traffic and parking was crazy which was nice of them. However, after reaching when we sat we were not even given few mins to decide as the menu was very limited some people were struggling to find an appropriate dish. We were told(not in a nice way) we need to place an order straight away now because there is another booking which was 2.10 hours later which is shocking and which didn’t make sense. When I asked there’s anything they can for my 11 year old daughter one the lady was so abrupt she just gave a plain answer ‘no sorry’ Again another person managed to give us a couple of options she said nicely to my daughter maybe she can have an express bread with the soup so that it’s substantial but later on serving the soup that wasn’t even offered. My daughter ended up having soup which arrived late because of the limited food options whereas we all had a starter and a mains I would not say price justified the service we had. Although the table was booked until 8:30 pm we were rushed into everything we gave them the table back by 0745 pm. Whilst leaving when we’re collecting jackets we were expected to wait for the servers to pass however there wasn’t any gratitude shown as there is hardly any space for more than one person to stand at a time All in all will never go back and recommend anyone this place. Not sure how it’s Michelin guide Standard was really really low not at all justified.
