    We’ve been meaning to try this restaurant for years so when Facebook told us about midweek menu we booked. Thoroughly enjoyed the five course taster menu especially the sea bass starter and take on the French-non onion soup. Service slightly too speedy but that meant we got the bus back home. Excellent Sardinian red wine.

    Excellent food and drinks. Had a lovely time. Only things to comment on was the restaurant itself was very warm. We were sat close to the kitchen and it was distracting at times having so many servers stood around close to our table. When we were served our meal, I couldn't hear some of the servers at all as they spoke quietly and at times fast. Overall a good experience. Would recommend.

    Amazing food, amazing staff & service & amazing atmosphere. I can’t believe that I’m slightly critical of the fact that there was just too much to eat!!! After 6 courses we were struggling as each delight was quite rich (especially ‘Not French Onion Soup”). However, already recommending to our friends and we will definitely return.

    Incredible food, I had the vegetarian menu and it was absolutely beautiful. Amazing service, start to finish every single member of staff that served us was engaging, attentive, and polite. The atmosphere was lovely, not pretentious or uncomfortable, just all around welcoming & a lovely clean environment that was well presented too. I couldn’t recommend V&V enough ☺️

    Amazing experience. Felt welcomed from the moment walked in. Only feedback to improve is maybe Jono himself could come to tables to greet guests and give overview. But had an amazing experience and will certainly be booking to go back.

    A lovely meal from start to finish, service very good, only (very small) downside for us was being sat near the pass. Staff tend to congregate near the pass, sometimes 4 or 5 at a time, they weren't being noisy or disruptive just we were aware of them throughout the meal. I'd say they'd be better moving the pass a little further away from the end tables, not easy though as the restaurant is pretty small. The main things though, food was top notch and an excellent music selection!

    Overall very good value for money. Five courses, 3 of which had an element of truffle. I felt a little overwhelmed by truffle in the end but my partner loved it. My favourite course was the fish, my husbands, the risotto. My nut allergy was managed perfectly, although my pudding by was a little disappointing. Service began extremely well, very attentive. The first 3 courses came quickly, we would have liked a little more of a gap between them. Service tailed off towards the end, when the restaurant was almost empty with just 3 tables left. We asked for the bill several times and waited 15 minutes for it to be given and for us to pay. Considering how quickly the courses came out, this was noticeable.

    Food is phenomenal, good portions for a taster menu. Can feel quite quick between courses, especially if you have drinks pairing. Can feel like quite a rush to finish to it drinks before Starting the next one on the next course.

    The service was exceptional from the moment we walked through the door. The location is fantastic and the room is decorated beautifully. The subtle music is pleasant and not overpowering. Every member of staff was fantastic, incredibly helpful while not being pushy and nothing was too much. We were there for my Mum's 60th birthday and Jono made this so special by signing a personalised menu and having a photo with us. The food was fantastic and like nothing we have ever had before. Just absolutely outstanding. The only thing I would say is that the service charge was unexpected and when it's more than 19% of a large bill, it is quite a lot. It would be better to say would you like a leave to top of e.g. 5, 10, 15% etc. However, I did pay it because of the incredible service. Every meal was explained to us and the pairing wine too. Because of the design of the room and location upstairs it felt like you weren't in a city centre. But the stairs may be troublesome for some people and I didn't see a lift so that could maybe be clearly noted on the website? But to summarise, best food, best service, best restaurant.

    Very filling for fine dining. Only 3 courses out of 7 were a hit with us which isnt a great ratio. Even the bread and butter and opening snack were underwhelming. Unrefined. There are much, much better places to eat for the prices charged i’m afraid. Wine and service both very good (bottle, not pairing) but its just not brilliant food unfortunately.

    Had the vegan tasting menu and was blown away by the quality, presentation and taste. No meat substitutes to be found, just amazingly fresh plant based ingredients made into delicate and delicious plates. The venue itself is beautiful and the playlist was perfect. Also wonderful to be able to see the chefs in action from our table. Staff were friendly and knowledgable and we felt very welcome and looked after.

    This is a pleasant experience. We had the 7 course taster menu, but had booked a deal for £40 instead of £79pp. It was worth £40, although 2 of the dishes weren't to my palate. The waiting staff were very friendly, attentive and professional, although when delivering the food spoke very quietly so I wasn't quite sure what I was eating. We still had a nice evening though.

    Great quality and for a price that won't break the bank. Well worth doing the Wine pairing, it really elevates the flavors. Super talented chef the risotto was out of this world! Nice atmosphere not pretentious nice and comfortable and the staff give you adequate time and are very tentative and knowledgeable. Cant fault it.

    We have been to this restaurant quite a few times and I would thoroughly recommend going if you haven't tried it. Chef Jono is such a nice guy and he is so talented. His food is just outstanding. We visited on a Saturday so had the signature tasting menu. The menus are changed regularly so there is always something new to try. Each dish is explained to you and is always presented beautifully and the food combinations are just amazing. We thoroughly enjoyed every course that we had, everything was so different. The service throughout the evening was fantastic. All the staff are so lovely and make you feel welcome and valued. You can opt for the drinks pairing which we have had on a previous visit. Alternatively there is a drinks menu which has a great choice of wines and champagnes. Thank you to Chef Jono and his brilliant team for another outstanding evening.
