A little disappointed as it was a birthday booking and I didn’t receive the usual birthday treat. Wouldn’t have minded so much but I’m a regular at Christophers so it’s usually a highlight for me. Also and the couple next to us did as the lady was celebrating her birthday too! I thought it would be weird to ask the waitress so I left a little disappointed! Never mind!

Great food, good service. Our waiter was amazing. There was a group of 5 of us that went for brunch. It was quite busy so service was quite slow, but understandable in this climate. I would definitely return again. Food and cocktails were lovely!

Having enjoyed Christopher's for many years, on this occasion it was the poorest service received from the restaurant. I booked a table for my wife's birthday, expecting the usual birthday experience (note to restaurant sent beforehand).
The waiters, even after I reminded whilst present miserably failed to understand. I have never received such poor service and understanding leading me to walk out extremely disappointed.

On a side note, the food itself was not bad however not the usual standard one expects from Christophers.

I went for the French toast, which was delicious. But the front of house staff were extremely rude. They were disinterested and completely ruined the experience. Not what I expect given the premium prices. Avoid.

Great place for brunch. I came for my birthday and had french toast with dark chocolate it was the best I’ve ever had. My sister and friend had lobster dumplings and they tasted so good. They also did a quality pornstar martini. The only thing was I didn’t get a sparkling candle as I saw many other tables but this could of been because my birthday wasn’t mentioned on the booking. I would recommend.

I went for dinner for the first time and and didn’t realise that there is a main dining room and a room at the side. We were put in the room at the side. The main dining room is beautiful and has an atmosphere our room was the opposite. We could see tables in the main dining room the entirety of our night and were told that room was fully booked. When I asked if we could move a member of staff had an attitude and was quite rude. Throughout our meal it was almost impossible to get any staff attention as they’re all busy entertaining in the main dining room and completely neglected us. It’s just not value to be paying the same prices and receiving a completely different service. I had to get up and get someone from the other room to ask for something. We even had to ask them to clean the table as they bought our desserts whilst chips were still on the table. The French toast was incredible best French toast I’ve ever had and definitely one of the best desserts, despite my bad experience I’m coming back just for that. My wagu beef burger I asked for medium and it came well done which spoiled it and I didn’t want to come across as a complainer so didn’t mention it as they seemed to already have a bit of a problem with us for asking to go in the other room. It was quite disappointed if I’m honest which was a real shame really put a damper on our evening

Food was lovely but the dessert was overcooked. Drinks and burgers were nice. Such a shame that the steaks are no longer halal. It was the main reason we were frequent diners here. Also we miss the superfood salad.

We ordered wagyu burger & chips, the burger was delicious & worth the money but we had to buy chips separate, which were 5.50£ but they were definitely not worth it. Very small bowl, chips were cold, and they were very cheap chips, not ones you’d expect in a fancy restaurant.

A bit disappointed that the avocado has coriander in it and I have an allergy, surely the chef could just have cut up avocado slices for me? Instead I had to get the truffle scrambled egg which was nice but just very over priced for what I wanted.

Whatever you do, get the brioche french toast. The staff are amazing, thoughtful and attentive. The restaurant adhere to covid 19 regulations without making you feel that we are going through a horrific ordeal. Great escape. Highly recommend !
