Fantastic setting for date night, the food was outstanding. The decor was beautiful and the staff were extremely attentive. I can highly recommend the scallops and Beef wellington. Great range of drinks which compliment the food.
We enjoyed it so much we will be taking friends back later this month!

The food and service were very good. We enjoyed a really leisurely lunch . The food was good quality, well presented and delicious. We asked for a wine recommendation as my knowledge of English wines isn't good, we were suggested a really good choice. We enjoyed so much that we booked to return before we left!

Lovely place in a bit of a strange location. Inside the ICC on a Tuesday night is very empty and quiet.
The space is lovely and the food was superb.
The wine list is, to say the least, comprehensive, it is like reading a copy of Encyclopedia Britannica. Sometimes, too much choice can be as debilitating as too little.
I hope they do well as the quality of the food deserves that.

Hi Tracey, thanks for choosing Craft & for leaving a review, we are pleased you enjoyed the food. We appreciate that its lengthy and having visited & tried them all it was a growling task however as a venue that only stocks English wine we had to get a strong range to ensure the guests had a strong range. I would love it if you would come back & we could maybe run through some of the amazing English wines we have, its a great passion of mine and some are really special. Thanks Emma Morgan, Owner

Craft Dining Rooms is a concept that mixes professional fine dining with a relaxed, comfortable lounge experience. Even though it takes up a huge space in the ground floor of the ICC, its corner position in the building means it is tucked away. The interior is modern, sleek, with subtle artful touches.
The food selection is exciting with dishes to suit vegans, vegetarians. The presentation of the dishes is sublime; a lot of thought has gone into food arrangement and pairing with crockery.
The staff were lovely, really caring and respectful. They tended to my ever want and need. I had a enjoyable meal.

The food was delicious, the service was great, but the place was empty. It was my boyfriends birthday and they added a lovely touch by giving him a plate of chocolates with a candle on top.
I would definitely recommend this place and go back. I hope it starts to pick up as it was literally empty. Maybe some more advertising signage in the ICC would help.
People pass through the ICC everyday going to work etc. Someone handing out flyers or serving samples possibly would help.
Looking forward to my next visit

Ciara, firstly thanks for taking the time to place a review and to comment on how great you felt the food and service was. In respect of how quiet it was I believe that is a combination of things for example, time of the table, The ICC being closed and the BH weekend is the quietest wk end in the city. The week before on the same day had 82 seated so we can see some clear trends in the booking patterns with September looking very busy with 350% increase in numbers we hope to see you again soon.

Hi Chris, thanks for taking the time to send aus a review and to comment so highly on the food and service, we not your comments regarding it being quiet and this is quite normal for a late table on a Monday in the city over the holiday period, footfall drops to 9% and all the bookings are typically early b business bookings on Mondays. We have seen a 350% increase in bookings in September so we hope to see you again soon.

From the setting to the food the whole time spent in Craft was absolutely faultless...
The effort put into the dishes was clearly visible, my partner (who is never satisfied) didn’t have a bad word to say, which is some accolade in my house!!!!
We can’t wait to return to pick out the things we didn’t get to try this time round, hats off to everyone both front of house and in the kitchens, amazing job

We visited Craft Dining Rooms on Sunday 4 August to celebrate our 35th Wedding Anniversary. I had indicated on our booking that it was our anniversary and this was noted by staff on our arrival and at the end of our meal. The food and drinks were excellent - particular highlights being the Fish Pie starter, the Beef Wellington main course and Rice Pudding for desert. All the staff were friendly and wanting to please - a particular mention goes to Illyana. All in all a very enjoyable experience - we will definitely return.

Personable, enthusiastic, pleasant service, an impressively furnished setting and fantastic food. It's definitely on the pricier side but I've eaten in several Michelin star restaurants and the food here does not fall far short of that mark (and the portions are bigger).

Came here as a result of a promotion and I would recommend the use of promotional offers initially to develop a customer base, as it was extremely quiet when we went in. That being said, now that we've experienced the food and cocktails, we are almost certain to come back, highly recommended!

Thank you for taking the time to review Craft, as the owner of the restaurant it is vital to me that we receive regular feedback on the level of service we provide and the quality of the food. I acknowledge the pricing and we have since reviewed this to make it more accessible all year round, outside of the offers a customer can now have a 3 course meal for as little as £28.00 which we believe is now very competitive in the market i therefore for thank you for highlighting that element.
