Wonderful food as ever. Only negatives were being made to feel very rushed off our table by 2 different staff at the end, even though there were a few free tables around us.

We were really pleased to get a lunchtime booking here and enjoyed some very tasty food. We would highly reccommend what we ate; chicken , meat balls and roasted vegetables. Service was very good and helpful. I would definitely come here again if I was in the area.

Was seated in the garden in the back - had a really nice ambience, was quite noisy but nothing too distracting.
Ordered the seabass ceviche and the artichokes which were both excellent. Also ordered the purple potatoes which lacked seasoning, but were still cooked well.

The charred vegetable dishes, we tried cauliflower charred on grill with cumin yogurt and charred carrots were both delicious. The two salads being anchovy reddish was not a hit and the butternut squash with pomegranate and walnuts was good. The pork meatballs and squid dishes were both mediocre at best maybe 5/10 and nothing special, squid was soaked in oil and came with mash which isn't a great combination at all. This place has nothing fancy for the price you are paying, actually all of the dishes they have if one has a grill can easily be made at home and are nothing unique in anyway. The bills came to about £140 with a glass each amongst 3 adults and 1 child had a spaghetti pasta with bottled tomato sauce however there is no kids menu. Run of the mill pasta a mother without any time makes at home. Overall I would rate this restaurant 6/10 just because the service and atmosphere are really good. Definitely not worth the price you pay for vegetables and salads and mains.

As much as the ambience and food is amazing, there was a mouse in the courtyard running freely. I am beyond disappointed with how the management recklessly reacted to this when the issue was raised. It is truly disheartening when a high profile restaurant such as Gold comes short meeting the minimum standard of hygiene. Beyond that, the indifference of the staff to this issue leaves me speechless. It made an otherwise enjoyable experience utterly and shockingly terrible. Would not recommend dining at this restaurant, especially since the open plan kitchen was steps away from where we spotted the mouse, utterly disgusting.

Very tasty meal and our seating request was kindly accommodated. The only not so perfect part of the experience was that all our dishes arrived more or less at once - which didn’t seem to be the case for other tables so perhaps it was just a case of what we ordered - but a bit of staggering would have been nice to pace the meal and keep the table from being overcrowded. A very minor criticism of an otherwise tasty and enjoyable lunch.

Lovely restaurant, great ambiance. Lovely staff. Cool decor.
Food was fresh, good quality made with care, but I found the menu a little limited and not the most filling. It’s a sharing menu which contained a lot of nuts, If there was a little more variety, maybe even with textures or cooking style as it focused on raw, salad and veg- I think this place could be a winner

Meat balls and purple potatoes were well made and tasty I recommend it as a main ✅ but the desert (pavlova) not what we expected 🌝 management needs to review the price list 🤔.

What a terrible experience! Have been waiting for a very long time for a booking, and was truly looking forward to this lunch. We managed to get a 3pm table yesterday for my parents and I.

Very informal welcome, took us to the table and the waiter came about 15 minutes after we sat to ask for what we wanted, very rushed, not welcoming or explaining the menu/concept.

Anyways, we asked for some drinks, took a while for them to come, then we ordered the food, and the food didn’t come didn’t come and when we asked, the waiter came back and said none of the things we ordered were left and that he lost our order. We had to re-order what was left of food, very very big mistake from the Chef and Overall staff. We ordered 3 plates to get the order going and we would order more afterwards and when the waiter came back with the first plate I asked for 2 other things by which he replied the kitchen was closed.

What a terrible terrible experience.

We ordered a bottle of wine, was put on a bucket far from us, we had to stand up cross the restaurant to grab the bottle because none of the staff was re-filling the drinks.

All of this experience is yours for 323£.

This is a real shame and I’m out of words.

Very good food and drink options. Liked the fact that the portion for sharing were generous. The staff were fantastic, seating us early as we’d arrived way ahead of our booked. The interior was very well done and even though a cold day, sitting in the conservatory was quite warm.
