    Wonderful food, beautifully presented and superb service. But inevitably you pay a high price! I was slightly miffed that the value of the voucher that we had been given was only subtracted after the food, drinks and coffee had been totalled and 15% service added. It meant a very hefty service charge, including on the value of the voucher.

    I’ve been to a lot of Michelin star restaurants including L’enclume, moorhall and Ynyshir and they were all much better. No real wow dish, food was just ok but not what I would expect at three star

    Arguably one of the best multi-course dinners with wine pairings that I have ever experienced. The perfect balance between subtle flavors and richness. Creative. Well paced. Sequenced. If Michelin went beyond three stars, CORE would be there.

    We have been to 3-star Michelin restaurants on three continents and this experience is right up there with Alinea. The service/staff were amazing and are the primary driver behind this strong recommendation. Feel free to ask them anything and they will share their experiences/stories, etc. We even had one of our Dutch servers tell us where to go watch the England/Netherlands game right after our reservation. The food is impeccable and the presentation was amazing. We both had the classic tasting menu as we had not been to CORE before and it was everything we had hoped it would be. We will definitely be back to taste her Seasons menu. We also did the wine pairing and it is not to be missed. We ended our evening with a visit to the chef. She knew where we were from and why we were coming to her restaurant. This staff is amazing at communications. I wish we could give more stars - it was that good!!!

    As advertised! We simply had a wonderful experience for our anniversary. The overall ambiance combined with exquisite food was second to none. The culinary skills that were on display via the courses left us stunned. A place to experience over and over again
