Simple, creative and tasty dishes, excellent attentive and personal service. In a group of 4 we all loved all our food. Shared a number of 'snacks' as starters - all really good, the best were hake tempura, radishes and anchovy cream. Stand out mains were venison pithivers, and a wonderful hake dish. Managed puds! Again all excellent - I loved my banana parfait. Our waiter - and all the staff - wore masks, which we appreciated. And didnt let it get in the way of personal service. A lovely evening.

I love this place. Great service, ambience and delicious fresh and light food. My only gripe was that the bill was £300 between 4 of us. And I felt it should have more closer to £200
The portions are small so you need a lot of pates - but the prices are quite high for such small portions.
Still I am glad they survived the lockdown!

Outstanding food in a casual, laid-back setting. Tables spaced apart and staff wearing masks so no C-19 concerns either. Seasonal menu with a few choices for each course and some sharing plates (Hard to pick as all so good but cod tempura was standout). Looking forward to going back.

Very nice dinner.
Our table was outside on the pavement. there were a few spots of rain as we sat down but the evening dried off. I particularly want to write how good the service was. sometimes when a table is away from the main body of the restaurant it is easy to be over looked but the attention of the waiting staff was extremely attentive. Well done

Beautiful food and great service. Sat outside despite the rain and the team were great - positioning tables so we were dry and putting on heaters to keep us warm. A memorable lunch - sparklingly fresh squid and bream and pig croquettes to die for.

We had an outside table and it poured for some of the time, but it was such good food and service that we didn't mind - and we were under awnings anyway (but it was neverthelss chilly and a little damp).

We have eaten several times at Clipstone and returned again due to the excellent and imaginative food. This time did not disappoint, both in vegetarian dishes and meat ones.
Good atmosphere despite the current restrictions and very efficient service.
