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.

The service is spot on, The food, flavours and presentation are exquisite. I have eaten at Raymond Blanc's Quat' Saisons which was wonderful but for my husband and I Chef's Table is better. Love it.

The food is excellent, superb flavours always beautifully presented. The night we went the guinea fowl was superb.The service is informal, unobtrusive, and efficient. The atmosphere is quiet but friendly and relaxed. The wine list is a little expensive, but the less expensive wines are good value

Gorgeous food and service.
Knowledgeable and passionate staff who smiled through their masks to allow their personality to show.

The food was fabulous, surf and turf to start and the pork 7 ways were highlights, all dishes were perfectly executed.

We will be back, and we’ll bring more friends when we’re allowed!

A very welcoming restaurant with a great team both front of house, and in the kitchen. A lot of thought has gone into the regularly up-dated menus, with real attention to detail around texture and taste of each dish.

The food was absolutely fantastic, I had the lamb rump accompanied with an arancini ball and tomato sauce whilst my wife had the venison with a potato cake. These were cooked beautifully and devoured quickly.

The only downside was the pricing of the food and drinks, which made it a very expensive meal!

This however was expected and it didn’t spoil what was a lovely meal!

Great service, phenomenal food, good selection of drinks.
A small, perfectly formed place that really does deliver consistently.
I’ve been a few times over the years and it never disappoints. Imaginative but accessible plates that really do get the senses going.
Just book, turn up and Chefs Table will take care of the rest.

Was not impressed by the wine selection and because we hadn't ordered bottle wine meant we didnt hang around for pudding and went elsewhere for wine. But fantastic food and service. Clever well thought out menu! Loved it 🥰🥰 would 100% recommend xx

As usual the food was exceptional. The guinea fowl starter and the roast venison main course were amazing, we are still talking about the depth of flavours on the plate. If we manage to avoid a local lockdown we are planning to go again soon for lunch.
