Absolutely superb afternoon tea. Every flavour was unique and something to savour. Presentation was stunning.
The whole ambience of Craft, from the decor, lighting, staff and music made the dining experience something very special.

I can't recommend, food was limited I realised this before I went, but really didn't expect to be hungry after 3 courses. The staff even said I wasn't the first to say that. Im only a size 10, so not a huge eater. Yes I do fine dining, but normally leave content not hungry. I also put a negative comment on Facebook and had a very sarcastic reply from owner for not giving it 5 stars. Why should I when I didn't get value for money!! Also tried to over charge us £30. I won't go back and suggest if your going to eat before and check the menu.. The inside is lovely though and are adhering to covid rules x

We were seated at the closest table to the door. The front door was propped open on a chilly and windy night and the doors leading to the restaurant was opened and closed constantly bringing blast of cold air each time. We asked to be
Moved to a different table which was better but the air con was still very cold.

As far as good goes, being vegetarian I had no options ie, there was one starter and one main course so I didn’t get to choose. The soup I had was neither warm or chilled but somewhere in between. My main course was a non-descript white sauce in a pastry case (was apparently onion and potato)There were no sides on the menu, no vegetables or salad, just a tart. My husband faired better with his starter and mains having chosen what he would eat. However, he had chicken with no sides or veg or even the offer of this. The dessert was fine but nothing special.

The room was lacking in ambience and comfort. We were very disappointed as it was our anniversary night out but that’s life. We have eaten at many fine dining restaurants all over the world and this will not linger in the memory.

My wife and I arrived for our 14:15 booking only to find out we were in one of the pods. The pod was clean spacious and fitted with Alexa so we could pick our own music. The service was excellent, food amazing and the ambience sublime.

We would definitely recommend a visit to Craft.

I hadn't seen the menu, which is very limited, in hindsight I should have checked it out but having seen the Instagram feeds I was excited to eat here. The options on the limited menu weren't really for me, there was 1 starter that I fancied and 1 main, so I went for them. I thought the food was well presented but didn't taste as good as they looked. I only had two courses, treating the experience as a starer before going for a main meal elsewhere.

Thought the service could have been better, no one offered to take my jacket. At the end of our meal, an empty water bottle, empty beer bottle and 6 used glasses remained on the table which I thought was very poor. Surely empties should be cleared the moment a member of the brigade noticed them. One drink was wrong and had to be made again but I blame this on masks and communication being more difficult.

I would recommend others to check out the menu and cancellation policy prior to booking. I would also recommend that staff upped their game a bit in respect of the basics of service.

Personally I wouldn't visit again but it seemed busy with plenty of people having a good time so maybe the food just isn't for me and the staff were having an off day, or we were an isolated table on that night and some basics were missed.

Good luck with the restaurant

Amazing from start to finish. The food was every bit as good as my first visit and the service spot on. We had a private pod and the little touches in there made it brilliant, we didn’t want to leave.

Visited through a discount voucher so was good value for money. Service was quite slow at the first and staff were not too conscious about having loud conversations about service around our table. Food was really tasty and drinks were reasonable. Would return again on a reduced offer but probably not pay full price.

For obvious reasons, we were seated outside.
Table heater was inadequate and main course was soon too cold. There was a cool breeze so we needed to wear our coats!

The food was fine however I was diapointed considering the price and the images I had seen the starter was quite bland. I also wasn't very happy about not being told all seating was outside so therefore had to sit in my coat for the whole meal. I would not recommend this place to a friend

Amazing food and presentation was excellent! We were booked in the pod which was lovely and we were even able to choose our own music as they had an amazon device to play your songs!

Would definitely recommend and can not wait to go again with the family.

Lovely food, professional, knowledgeable and helpful staff. Wonderful food and great setting. My wife and I bought a Groupon voucher for a 3 course meal and a drink for 2 people. Would definitely recommend. The only criticism is that we subsequently learned during our meal that the table water we requested actually constituted the free drink. This may well be set out in the small print which we didn’t read but it was unexpected as I don’t ever recall having to pay for tap-water or having it listed as part of a dining deal that I have had in the past. Overall a lovely night and would recommend to others but would also suggest that some consideration is given to excluding table water from the drinks included in the deal.

Pod experience was great , nice for a few friends to socialise, chat and eat.
Food was great, maybe a slightly bigger choice would be helpful, although I am in favour of small menus. The biggest problem was the comfort of the seats. Need to be a little close to the table, overall, would definitely go again

Overall very nice experience, the food was exceptional, I had the beef, and Yorkshire pudding with oxtail inside yum, and I'm told the cod was very good too. Service was friendly and warm, we had a very obliging charming server John ? I think (sorry) but he was lovely.

Booked a pod for my boyfriend’s birthday and it was amazing. The heating and Alexa was an amazing touch and we had a great time!
The food was incredible and as a picky eater myself, I ate everything on the plate!
