A very enjoyable meal. I was intrigued by the Venison haggis tempura, so had to try it - delicious! As was the whisky with rosemary syrup and orange aperitif. My scallop starter was a work of art and my main course of roast patridge, black pudding mash, roast veg and blackberries continued to impress. One of the best meals out i’ve had in ages. Superb.

My husband and I are quite foodies. We love trying new things and normally do not eat out my husband is an excellent cook. We were both delighted with how the food was presented it looked delicious and inviting. |The taste of our chosen dishes was amazing either by tasting each element or as a combination. The mixed flavours worked so well and were well executed. Sorry we were to full to have a sweet. This was our first visit to Chefs Table. It wont be the last.

Quality of food was excellent a true dining experience complimented by good value wine. Nice to feel close to the kitchen where your food is being prepared freshly and also the small number of menu options reflected a high quality of selected produce.

We really enjoyed our meal at Chef's Table. In particular, the frogs legs and the lemon and honey steamed pudding were highlights.

One minor issue was that one chicken wing (out of four) was undercooked in the middle. However, this did not detract from the overall experience.

Value was decent and the service was impeccable. All staff were polite and efficient.

An amazing lunch enjoyed by 2 foodies...1 carnivore extreme and 1 aspiring pescatarian/vegetarian/vegan.
Both diners very happy with carnivore choosing starter of surf and turf, then pork 7 ways and the picky veggieish person on the crispy cabbage starter with jerusalem artichoke main course etc. etc. etc....so many subtle delicious layers and tastes.
A beautiful and enjoyable lunch which left us both feeling very happy for the rest of the day.
Thank you to all at The Chef's Table.x

Surf and Turf starter was superb; wish we had ordered some bread to mop up the wonderful sauce. The sea bass was excellent. My pork dish was good but two of the pork cuts were slightly over-cooked and somewhat chewy.
Service was first-class.

Chef's Table provides quality food cooked in an unusual way. If you prefer quantity to quality then it's not for you. Because the portions are not massive the you can enjoy every course without feeling over full and enjoy the each one for its own merit. No wonder in the present Covid sit
uation it's still difficult to find a table.
