    Slightly disappointing to our taste. We chose the seasonal menu, whilst a majority of the dishes were fantastic, some were underwhelming. Not to the standard of other 3 star restaurants we have eaten in. I am glad that we experienced Core, however, it is not a restaurant we will be returning to. Whilst it was the most expensive lunch we have had, it certainly was not the best food although the overall experience was very pleasant

    Had lunch at Core on Saturday for my wife's birthday. Exceptional from the moment we arrived. A warm welcome from the kitchen as we walked past was a great start and it continued from there. We opted for the seasonal tasting menu with the wine pairing. The food was excellent and it was obvious the amount of thought and work that had gone into each dish. The wine pairing was quite eceletic and very good. Definitely one of the best pairings I've had. This is not an everyday lunch and certainly isn't cheap BUT was certainly worth the expense and overall was wonderful experience. Hopefully will return one day for the Core Classics menu.

    Exceptional culinary experience from the moment you arrive - including the service from the staff, the food, and the atmosphere. A highlight was getting to meet Clare at the end to say thank you.
