Father’s Day brunch. The outdoor space is beautiful even on an overcast day. The staff is incredibly attentive and friendly. Cannot wait to go back! We will become regulars

Mother and daughter post exam day out
Lovely warm day so we sat in the pretty garden
Shepherds market has a great vibe but it smelt strongly of sewage/ manure
There were noisy helicopters and planes buzzing overhead that were intrusive
Soft drinks were not on the menu - bottles orange grapefruit or apple or sugar sweetened beverages coke lemonade
This is not the eighties and I would expect Gordon Ramsay to offer fresh juice at least!
The spinach and ricotta ravioli £19 was too salty and slightly tasted of washing up liquid- maybe dry your crockery properly?
Staff were ok but my daughter has to ask for sugar and milk for her early grey tea
It was a bit disappointing
Gordon has nice recorded message when you call up eg to change the booking time but perhaps he is a little too busy these days to oversee quality or detail - maybe he doesn’t care about the association
Pity because every other of his restaurants I have eaten in including savoy grill, claridges etc are unbelievably great value and stunning food and service - we probably won’t return here

I have been here several times and the food is excellent, the service attentive without being overwhelming. This visit was no exception, but there was one problem: for some unfathomable reason they had allowed a couple with a small barking dog to dine in the restaurant. Now, I have no objection to dogs in a restaurant, provided they are very well behaved. This one was a perfectly vile little hound, which started barking at everyone and everything the moment it arrived in the bar area, where we were having drinks. The owners were the self-indulgent, sociopathic sort who chose to ignore the intense irritation this was causing all their fellow guests, making pathetically ineffective attempts to quiet the miserable little beast. What surprised me was that the manager did not immediately step in and ask they remove the dog, or at the very least, take a seat on the terrace outside where it might possibly be asphyxiated by exhaust fumes. If a guest came in and started playing dog barking noses loudly from a portable speaker, it would be a matter of moments before they were asked to cease and desist. Why is the live version any more tolerable? A good meal, unnecessarily spoiled.

I had booked a table in The Secret Garden they have insude but, due to the heatwave, the manager suggested that we sit in the restaurant. That was a great idea, as we were able to enjoy our meal fresh and in a totally relaxing atmosphere.
There is a two course and a three course menu to choose from, £19/£23, and also other starters and a la Carte especialitues. I had the terrine and my friend had the smoked salmon. For mains we had the bavette and the beetroot risotto. I also had the treacle tart as a desert (I advise you to have it only if you have a sweet tooth, it’s really sweet!). Everything was delicious, and the service really attentive. Highly recommendable!

Stunning little garden and great service. Roast beef very chewy and potatoes not cooked properly but I have had roasts here and they have been good. Other meals very great and normally excellent food for the price in a pretty setting.

We had the Summer for Spoilt three course dinner menu which was good value for money. Food was served quickly and garden seating was relaxing and comfortable.
