We had the tasting menu. The snacks were all superb. Especially the coronation crab. The portion sizes were excellent - definitely did not leave hungry! The cocktails are delicious and the service was impeccable!

Impeccable - best meal I’ve ever had and I already want more! This is better than a lot of 2 star places and deserves a Michelin!

Superb food, with rich, intense flavours, beautifully presented. Service attentive without being intrusive. Just loved all the extras, from chocolates to a Hame bag containing tomorrow’s breakfast. I shall return!

Welcomed to the restaurant after a temperature check, to be sat at a table near the children to see busy chefs. Food was fantastic, helpful wine sommelier and attentive service. The music was too loud and not really needed when restaurant filled up.

If you want to give yourself a post lockdown treat, go to Frog! The food was exceptional; beautifully presented, fully explained by the chefs themselves, and was an all round taste sensation! The “snacks” that started our meal were incredible and the wagyu lobster an easy 11/10. Unlike some other tasting menus, you’ll definitely leave Frog feeling full.
The simplicity of the restaurant and the attentive service all made for a fantastic night out. Highly recommend

The most enjoyable meal I have had in a very long time, tasting menu was packed with visually stunning food, all of which was packed with intense flavours. The staff and chefs also enhanced the evening with their friendly yet professional service.

Some incredible food and a great tasting menu. The wagyu lobster and meadowsweet dessert were particular highlights. My only issue would be their application of the Government’s Eat Out to Help Out scheme - it seemed they had conveniently increased their prices from the website by the same amount as the scheme - not passing the saving on to me, the customer. Also, only received a £10 deduction despite being a party of two (my understanding was it was £10 per diner). On the whole its not a major issue when the meal is north of £450 - but it is a blemish on what wouldve been an otherwise outstanding meal.

We were treated to vouchers for our anniversary at Frog. There was a card congratulating us on the table and later we were presented with a lit and edible candle which was a nice touch .We chose the Adam tasting menu and one of us had the wine pairing . The snacks were amazing and each course that followed was delicious . The tomato salad was actually incredible and the cheese course was a real surprise. The service was faultless with dishes and wine explained and beautifully served. We left with a special breakfast bag to take home. As a special treat our evening did not disappoint. Highly recommended.

Great main course, the venison was delicious . The crab starter didn’t work for me. Over chilled crab meat with a warm crab bisque, lacked flavour. The desert was rhubarb based and again dint really taste of very much.
The cheese doughnuts were excellent as was the petit fours and coffee. Wine list a little too pricey. The mark up very generous. The service was excellent.
I used to go very often and the food was amazing. It’s still good but the sparkle has gone.

We had the signature tasting menu. 3 dishes stood out: mushroom agnolotti, lobster and beef dish. They were exceptional and memorable. Adam has talent and it’s definitely a meal worth having. Enjoy

Lovely experience and service is outstanding. Overall food was good but two dishes on tasting menu weren’t great. It’s expensive so little disappointed that all courses weren’t excellent.
It’s a lovely place overall and staff are incredible! Especially the lady Polish maitre d who is absolutely charming !
Nice touches like a birthday card and edible candle.

We very much enjoyed our dinner. Excellent food, service was good, non fussy environment. Slight problem was the noise level, otherwise I would have given it 5 stars all the way through. However, I would still highly recommend dining here!

We had a wonderful time, the food was outstanding and it was great to see it cooked by the man himself and to meet him in person at the end of our meal. The service was impeccable from all the staff. The atmosphere was very calming, with a great playlist. I loved the added touch of having a little stool for my handbag. The alcohol free 'champagne' brewed on-site in the 'lab' was a treat.

This reataurant really have a small place. You can hear lots of detail of others talking when you eating. The taste is really a little special strange. I need to wait for next course for a long time,this dinner cost me 2 hours. Hovewer I still feel hungry after this.

The tasting menu was great value for money but we also order the Wagyu A5 as well. The cod, duck and wagyu were exceptionally well cooked. However, sometimes for all the dishes, generally the flavours were quite unconventional combinations that were hard to fully enjoy. The staff made a great effort to make us feel welcomed for our Anniversary dinner.

Most of the savory dishes are a tad too salty. The salt element overpowered others so I couldn’t really enjoy the dishes. Towards to end of the tasting menu I was too full from drinking water to enjoy desserts.

Excellent visit for what is a real experience. The food and service were exemplary. The staff were interested in your experience rather than intrusive. The beauty of having lunch on a Saturday were the customers were food enthusiasts rather than expensed accounts. As a non-drinker the choice for each course made it interesting on the drinks. I will visit again as the seasons change. Many thanks.

Friendly staff with a pleasant ambience. Had the 5 course tasting menu. Celeriac starter and duck main were well done, however, the balance of tastes were too sweet for me with the desserts a little underwhelming. As it was my birthday, I got given a white chocolate parfait sculpted as a candle which was actually better than the dessert.
