The food was excellent, great variety with a good amount of vegetarian options and all reasonably priced. The service was spot on. We had a lovely server who really made us laugh. I would definitely come back to Lupins.

This is a brilliant restaurant. The food is innovative, exciting, and very, very delicious. The service is lovely. My only quibble would be the noise. Buzz is nice, but when it's full, the din can be hard to take. Otherwise this is a quite outstanding place. Will be coming back - even with the noise!

Food was absolutely delicious, but this is not a place for a leisurely lunch, since the service (although friendly) was relentlessly fast. We barely had time to start on one plate before the next came along - and then the next. Appreciate that this is a small plate establishment, but the tables for two were tiny, so not a lot of room for more than one dish at a time.

Another great meal at Lupins in which we sampled all snacks and small plates on the menu and enjoyed each of them. How such a range of Creative dishes is produced in such a small kitchen area is amazing.

We had a great time here for our date night. The space was small and as a result the experience was lovely, we never felt rushed and were very well looked after. We even had some dinner discussion with our neighbours which was a pleasant bonus. The sharing plates went down so well, would definitely come again with more people so we can try the rest!

Food was lovely. Prices were affordable. Often with small plates, I find you are told to order more than you need to and I detest it. The lovely waiter we had recommended just the right amount of dishes and she was diligent but not intrusive. The space is nice, if a little small. Would go back.

Were rather abruptly told we had 5 mins left on our table with no 15-20min warning. Would have been easy to reseat us downstairs but this wasn’t offered as an option. Food was really delicious though!

Really lovely food - small plates - we had 8 between 4. Original and interesting if a bit oily. Nice unobtrusive service, good wine. Only downside was it got very noisy but it was full on a Wednesday night in January. Booking essential i suspect.

Very welcoming staff, friendly and helpful. Very knowledgable on gluten free options, and when they felt they needed to check with the chef they did. Had 3 starters, 7 mains, 3 desserts between four of us. Really interesting mix of food that arrived gradually allowing us to savour the flavours and have a good chat. Came out having had a great experience but not feeling too full. Thoroughly recommend.

Lupins has been a favourite since it opened - homely, cosy yet interesting, original food, the perfect level of service (familiar and friendly but not overly chatty), and lovely ambience without too much noise (surprising considering how teeny tiny it is). It's a great place for small groups of friends, or a one on one dinner. Not the cheapest evening out BUT such good value for money and ALWAYS a treat!

This was our second visit & once again we were very impressed with both the food & service. Such interesting dishes served by very helpful young people . On arrival at 6pm we found the music way too loud for a group of 6 older people but the staff responded immediately & turned it down. Shall return .

Very good: great food, charming staff and moderate prices in one of my favorite parts of town. As it has been noted in other reviews, the small plates format works well because dishes are served in a sensible order. Will go back again as soon as I get a chance.

Lovely small restaurant with great food. There were 2 of us and we shared 3 small plates and 3 starters and it was plenty for us! For a lovely meal, it wasn't too expensive either. £110.00 for food and a bottle of prosecco.
It was quite quiet so was good if you know the person quite well and are comfortable however i wouldnt call it "vibey". Great for date night though.
