    The staff were fantastic, really helpful, quirky and friendly. It was nice to have one of the chefs come out to describe the dish. The food was delicious, really different tastes and the cocktails whilst small were delicious.

    Bullet points: food very good, service very good, wine expensive, small glass of beer ( max half pint) £5.5 - very expensive, quite noisy and lighting could be improved- benefit from a more vintage feel ?. Overall not great value for money.

    A very different eating experience based on a shared menu. Some dishes, like the lamb and halibut, were Michelin star worthy. In fact better than the dishes we had at a very famous Cumbrian one Michelin star restaurant. Service was very good, attentive but not intrusive. The staff were knowledgeable about the dishes and the drinks. It wasn't all good, the restaurant was very chilly, with frequent icey blasts as the doors were opened. The small fan heaters provided were inadequate. One of the two toilets had no towels to dry hands on, a very basic requirement. I will happily eat here again because of the quality of the food but I'll choose a warmer time of year.

    Fabulous food and service, what I most like about Fold is that the dishes are described well but are always presented beautifully, with imagination and not entirely as anticipated. They are without exception delicious. The wine can be expensive but if you choose carefully or just stick to bar drinks then you’ll be ok. Our only issue this visit was the noise level, it was a Saturday but there was a birthday party in of 10-12 people who seemed intent on talking louder than everyone else and made our table’s conversation almost impossible. The size of the venue and the acoustics didn’t help and we have had quieter, more pleasant visits here. The restaurant obviously needs to accommodate all customers, it just marred our visit this time a little

    Fabulous dining experience. The staff were so friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. We shared 6 plates from the winter menu as recommended by the waiter. Everything was equisite in taste, presentation, quantity and quality. The staff had in depth knowledge of the wine list and were able to give expert advice. We will definitely return to try the spring menu.

    You need to suspend disbelief when visiting The Fold as some of the dish descriptions can sound a little out there but don't let this put you off. For me, they are all uniformly excellent. If you value quality and innovative cuisine then this is the place for you.

    If you are thinking about dining here, do it! I discovered this place after a youtuber I watch dined there and showed off the amazing food, from the outside it looks like any other Bistro but from the moment you enter it is a completely different experience. From entering we were greeted and they offered to take our jackets for us, the staff were incredibly polite and friendly and helped to explain the menu and how best to order. I went with my girlfriend and we don't have much experience dining in nice places such as this and it can sometimes be daunting however the staff being so friendly made us feel at ease. The attention to detail is great as well, you can tell they are paying attention to what you like/might not be enjoying as much and making sure the experience is going well. Onto the food, it was brilliant, every single dish we had was incredible and the portion sizing was just perfect, personal favourites of mine would have been the Blackened Jerk Cod (with Japanese Chips) and the Lamb "Hot Pot" with the Duck Pastrami being our favourite cold dish. The flavours worked really well together and most dishes had surprising flavours (in a good way) that made you realise how much thought had gone into the food. I will definitely be back, I would like to thanks the staff for making us feel welcome, helping us through the menu and ensuring that we had the best Valentines meal

    A very friendly atmosphere with lots of helpful staff, who explain the menu and wine choice. Love the open kitchen and the stylish unfussy decor. The food is both delicious and adventurous , with three or four small plates advised per person. Would recommend the oysters, mackerel, roast cabbage and the blackened cod. Will definitely visit again.

    We were so excited to dine at The Fold as it had come highly recommended. We arrived at 4.30 and got shown straight to our table. The place is more like a cafe rather than a Bistro/restaurant. It was cold and I kept my coat on for most of the time my husband did not take his off. We ordered the roast beef dinner. It was a small portion with 2 very thinly cut pieces of beef. It was also cold!! There were no check backs so we just ate it as we were famished. When the waitress came to clear the places I informed her that the food was cold. She apologised for not checking back and as gesture of good will she gave our drinks complementary. The whole experience was very disappointing as we expected it to be wonderful.

    We felt that the food and wine was overpriced. Unfortunately We felt that the food wasn’t great, maybe trying to be to creative and it didn’t pull off. Slow cooked lamb looked like slop to be honest and the flat bread was tasteless. The other dishes were average although the Venison was lovely.
