    I think this is our 3rd visit to chefs table & every time we have not been disappointed. Upon arrival until you leave the service is spot on. There’s no rush for you to finish each course. The food is freshly cooked using seasonal produce, the way in which the chefs present the food & the flavour is exceptional. We could have chosen everything off the menu, that is the only problem, what to choose 🤣. I cannot wait for our next visit to chefs table, it is certainly a real treat.

    We had a great evening at the Chef's Table enjoying outstanding food, wine and a super-friendly service. The only downside with the large party of people [approx. 12] sitting next to us that was extremely noisy. Other than that we had a terrific time.

    Have visited Chefs Table several times in the past and always really enjoyed eating there. Eagerly awaited visit but tbh was somewhat disappointed by the food I chose. Cocktail and beer to start amazing but the burrata starter was too floral which overwhelmed the delicate flavour rather than enhancing. The pork main was spoilt by a rather acidic, incorrectly balanced jus. Gooseberry fool, again lacking in flavour 😐 It won’t put me off revisiting but think the Chef needs to make the food less complicated

    Staff are great & food was good. The starters were great, a great choice of drinks to match. Unfortunately the lamb wasn’t pink as requested and the pork was very salty. Having said that, we enjoyed our evening & happy to tip the staff for the service and experience.

    We both hugely enjoyed our meal at The Chef's Table. The cocktails that we started with were an absolute delight, and the wine pairings for each course were excellent. The staff couldn't have been friendlier, or more informed about the food and drink, and the fresh décor, and general ambience, totally suited the whole dining experience. My only disappointment was the pre-set time limit to our sitting. I would have happily sampled the cheese board, and enjoyed another glass off wine, after having been wowed by the crème brulee, and its accompanying German desert wine.

I had the sea trout which was insane with mouth watering flavours followed by lamb nose to tail - delicious finally gooseberry fool which was delightful finish to the meal. Just love the combinations of flavours these chefs come up with

    We came early on a Friday evening for my husbands birthday dinner. We had the works, appetisers, starters, main courses and dessert with the matching wines and everything was superb. The stand outs were the haggis fritters with katsu ketchup and the amazing lamb dish. Could not fault the food or service. Yum!

    Food was outstanding, and all produce was high quality and well established dishes. I would highly recommend, and go again. I also would like to say that it was exceptional food for the price point. I would have liked to have some more information and time with the waiters on explanations of the dishes and some discussion. The only other thing that was irritating was the vibrating loud kitchen fan.
