Only negative was being next to the doors which lead to toilets, when these were open it was freezing! Apart from this it was amazing.

In such tough circumstances you have to admire the quality of everything from the service to Calvin the exceptional sommelier. We chatted to the chefs and were admittedly "excited" to try everything and get the full experience. A fun place that really hits all the right notes. The perfect balance of great food, wine and service in a relaxed and welcoming environment. Probably the best meal I have had all year.

We had an amazing meal at The Frog.
The food was outstanding, beautifully presented and cooked to perfection.
The chicken butter and sourdough was my personal highlight but all the other dishes were flawless as well - we even got to try one of their new desserts (which was amazing!).
Service was absolutely impeccable, friendly, attentive with great suggestions from the sommelier - going to The Frog for the service alone is warranted in my view.
Yes, it is not cheap, but as a treat it is well worth it! We'll be back.

For me this restaurant just didn't pull it off. We should probably have gone for the tasting menu rather than a la carte. We had a table by the window which was draughty. The starters (cheese donuts, a beef / kimchi wrap) were odd; the mains (chicken and grouse respectively) were cooked sous vide and lacked texture. There were several between course treats that were good and the service and sommelier was good too, but overall it didn't make it into my list of places to go back to.

Outstanding. Right at the top of UK restaurants.
Food is sensational with lots of delicious interesting extras. Service is impeccable.
The only area for some further attention is the wine list, where some extra more recognisable wines from US and Southern Hemisphere would provide additional choice in the mid-price range.

What a treat! everything was delicious and beautifully presented. Almost faultless dining experience, we didn't like our table, but someone has to be next to the door :) As it turned out, it is always rightly busy in there, so as the evening warmed up we were glad of the occasional breeze.

food, service, atmosphere was graet.
tunes from 80's and 90's played - so fit with my age group.
Did the wine pairing too, liked the whites, less so the reds/rose...but wine is always a punt.
Went to Eve bar - cocktails were uber nice too

We had the most incredible time at Frog! Everything was outstanding.. the food was faultless! We were seated at the counter and got to watch Adam Handling himself in action where he was very social and chatted with us too. We had his tasting menu with matching wine which was excellent! All the staff were amazing and we just had the most special time! It’s the best tasting menu we’ve had in a very long time! I can’t thank Adam and his team enough for such a magical evening!

Our collective socks were completely knocked off: wit, inventiveness, an impeccable sense of taste balancing, exquisite presentation - I could go on, but you would do much better to save your pennies (and your appetite) and go there. Charitably, there are affordable wines on a mini-list and the sommelier gives excellent advice.

The loos are fun too!

Amazing!
My friend and I treat ourselves to an extravagant dinner every 6 months or so. This time I chose The Frog.
Start to finish it was incredible, the staff were lovely, a great selection of reasonably priced wines and the ambience was brilliant.
However the highlight was the food. We had the tasting menu, it was sublime. Adam and the team really underpromise and overdeliver, most notably on the ‘snacks’ element!
All delicious- thank you team.
It was a splurge but it was certainly worth it. We both agreed it was the best one we have done so far. Thank you team!

Simply sensational. Adam and team’s 1st star has to be imminent. I’ve eaten at the Dysart,, Chez Bruce and Trinity in the last 6 months. All exceptional restaurants with a star and Frog is the best.

This is always such a wonderful experience! The waitress we had was very kind, fun, and knowledgeable. We did the tasting menu and it was amazing! I just wish I had come hungrier. We also did the wine pairing and it was perfect every time. This restaurant went above and beyond though by sending us home with breakfast for the next day! It's not something you order but something they gift you and it was so much fun to have that the next morning. I will definitely be back!

I booked a table for my husband's 40th birthday and we were not disappointed! We had to bring our baby and the staff were so accommodating and made us all feel very welcome. The food was amazing and the ambience was lovely and calm (apart from us with the baby!) Really worth it for a special meal, I'm still thinking of the chicken butter and the Wagyu lobster! Awesome meal and lovely personal touches!

What a meal.

Celebrating our 10th anniversary, we booked Frog based on good reviews and knowing Adam Handling from Masterchef Professionals.

He wasn't on the pass the night we visited, but I can't imagine he would have made the meal any better, as it was quite sublime. Wonderful food delivered by extraordinarily nice people in a warm, convivial atmosphere.

Every course was delicious (get the cheese doughnuts whatever else you do), even the bread and butter was ridiculously good and everyone was just so lovely. They say excellent service can save a poor meal, but it sure as hell amplifies one where the food is also excellent.

Obviously, I reccommend this restaurant, I will be returning as soon as possible.
