    We have been a number of times and it is always excellent. This time our table had the Classic tasting menu and it was incredible. Best ever; every course! Service impeccable - attentive yet discreet. A nice touch to send junior staff to table to describe their creations for one of the courses; also that Clare is there to greet and speak to diners.

    A wonderful dining experience! We took 3 classic menu and 3 seasonal menu plus 3 sets of pairing wines. Each dish was perfectly executed, and each paring wine was well chosen to enhance the dish.

    Loved the ambiance and the food Didn’t love the asparagus and the cod and felt visually a bit samey one after the other (green) Would expect more courses / food for a tasting menu of that price

    Outstanding as last time we visited few years ago. By far the best michelin star restaurant I've tried so far and I've visited a few , also 3 Michelin stars but nothing to compare to Core and the team! Well done !

    This was our first time dining at Core. We came with very high expectations (it is a three-star Michelin Restaurant after all). And Clare did not disappoint. We were lucky enough to have the table in front of the kitchen, so we got entertainment all evening. The presentation of the dishes were impeccable. The taste out of this world. The wine pairing spot on. It is expensive, but you buy Clare's experience!
