    Another great meal in SW, service as always was amazing. My only recommendation (and this is a personal one I know) but to improve the wine list. Always struggle to find one I really like. ;-)

    Excellent Sunday lunch, great menu choices with a good selection of starters, mains and desserts, including a couple of specials. Great wine choices too. The beef was delicious and the red wine jus, perfection. In hindsight we'd have asked for the jus to be served in a separate jug, just because we like our roast potatoes crispy and sitting in the jus made them a bit soft. The £22.50 supplement per person for 35-day aged sirloin just didn't feel like good value, so we went for the regular beef and weren't disappointed. Overall a great restaurant which we would highly recommend.

    It had been a while, but so pleased to have rediscovered the Sticky Walnut for a perfect birthday lunch. Everything, from the warm service to the excellent chilled wine selection, was most enjoyable. The pork main was particularly delicious.

    Went for Sunday lunch with my dad. Service was excellent and we were received and looked after by the waitress. We had the two course Sunday lunch (roast beef) which was a little cool on arrival but tasted great. the Desserts were amazing, and be sure to get the complimentary fudge after your meal.

    Absolutely love this place but a bit disappointed yesterday food not up to scratch. Roast potatoes not there usual crispy self. Veg on Sunday roast quite disappointing loads of cabbage which seamed to be a plate filler with absolutely no taste and the green beans were pickled which was rather bizzare on a Sunday roast. Sharing beef not as great as it usually is. Wont let it put us off as we all have bad days and hopefully was just a one off.

    Disappointing birthday meal. Waitress was kind and attentive. Would have booked a table downstairs, upstairs stuffy and busy. Pate was bland sourdough and chutney tasty, pig croquettes enjoyable. Lamb appeared preprepared and tasteless for £6 extra tempura anchovies good match bbq smell of sauce was not pleasant. Partner enjoyed beef but too rich with nothing to cut through richness. Parmesan/truffle chips lovely. Wine pairings and port cocktail enjoyable. Didn’t order desert. Prices typical but with no wow factor so damp squib I’m afraid, can’t recommend, won’t be returning.

    A very pleasant birthday lunch. Well presented dishes and with three courses we all felt that we had eaten far too much so the portion sizes overall are generous. Some of the food combinations were confusing and the crackling on the pork roll would have benefitted from a better knife, maybe a steak knife to make cutting it easier. Not the cheapest place in town but one that you know you will come away from with a smile on your face. Well worth a visit.
