Entertaining colleagues from the US, great that we could talk discreetly and hear each other. They loved the look and the whole ambience. The food was lovely, dietary requirements were easily satisfied from the standard menu, all courses were delicious. Perfect.
We had a lovely evening great service lovely food. Thank you.
Good ambiance. Friendly service. Excellent food. We will return.
Great food and fantastic service. We were made welcome and felt comfortable. We will return. Cheers 😊
The food was absolutely delicious especially the parsnip soup and pumpkin gnocchi, the staff were really friendly and it was such a lovely atmosphere - we are still talking about what an unexpectedly great evening we had and can't recommend it highly enough. We will definitely be back :)!
Well balanced menu, delicious food, lovely atmosphere and just the right level of service all made for the perfect lunchtime catch up with old friends. We all had empty plates and all smugly declined the desert menu, which looked very tasty.
Definitely worthy of revisits.
Excellent food & staff were extremely helpful & accommodating to my party needs. A most enjoyable evening spent with friends.
I have to say staff are very friendly the food was great and I would go again
Great meal, friendly service, lovely atmosphere. Will definitely be going back!
Amazing food, lovely place to visit! Prefect Sunday.
Setting was excellent and food was absolutely superb... the only negative was that the staff could have been more attentive, for example we had to wait 15 mins to order a drink as opposed to being offered one when we were given the menu...
After attending a fashion event with Sarah Gray Image we stayed on for lunch. Service was attentive and friendly and we enjoyed our lunches - Rabbit for me and a chicken and chive pie for my sister. Both delicious! I am sure we will be back.
Great place! Food was delicious. Relaxed, welcoming and warm environment. Will definitely be going back to try more dishes!
Lovely meal. Good beer. Family well looked after including family member allergy.
Noise level (3 out of 4) based on own families noise. Otherwise 2/4.
Thank you The Kitchen.
Great food, friendly staff and amazing food. Will definitely be going back
Delicious food served by friendly staff in a lovely environment, what more could you want, we loved it!
Excellent Sunday lunch with the family, nice relaxed ambience and good service. Roast beef was superb. Great choice on the menu.
We had a lovely evening at the Kitchen celebrating mine and my twins birthday. The ambience is lovely furnishings are soft and comfortable I particularly like how clean the windowsills and windows are as these are often forgotten. The staff are super fast and efficient, especially the bar man who cannot do enough for you.
Gorgeous meal thank you & attentive service. Portions were ample. I opted for the salmon fish cakes & pannacotta for dessert. Both were excellent, but the dessert was divine. Worth a journey.
Amazing Sunday lunch. The beef was immense, the best ever. Highly recommended. Will be going back next week for sure!
We really enjoyed our family Sunday lunch at the Kitchen. Food was sensational and the service was faultless. Highly recommend.
Lovely food and friendly staff, fish pie was very nice. Will definitely go back
This was a completely random but totally successful lunch choice - location chosen so we could meet friends halfway, otherwise 100 mile trip for one or the other. Other significant factor was the 'dog-friendly' element. Could not have been happier. Very casual atmosphere, however food was absolutely excellent, staff very professional and several well-behaved dogs in evidence. Two of us had the roast beef and it was pronounced the best every. ( Apparently from HMQ's supplier). Absolutely terrific.
Excellent food, great value, lovely atmosphere, very helpful staff
Delicious meal in stylish yet comfortable surroundings with excellent service. Everything was perfect and we particularly enjoyed the medallions of beef which almost melted in the mouth they were so tender! Look forward to returning for a cosy autumn supper!
First time here. Lamb was delicious. Pannacotta v. Good indeed. Fish cakes tasty. Good bistro/pub restaurant. Looking forward to going again
We enjoyed our second visit within a week. Compared with the first Sunday, the Friday of the Bank Holiday weekend was quiet so service was faster. But the food remains consistently good and the surroundings very pleasant. This is now our default lunch break on our journeys between Derbyshire and Surrey.
Great food, lovely location, friendly staff. Well worth a visit!
Food was sublime. Gorgeous garden
the food was AMAZING! the service was really good. a bit expensive but will be back again.
Great food. Had the prawn & fish curry 2 nights running it was so good.
Excellent food, lovely place and ambience. Very reasonable price. Service was a little slow at times but overall well worth it. Would go again
Delicious lunch in a lovely pub. Very friendly service. Service seemed a little slow with bringing our food out but this may have been because we were so hungry! Highly recommend.
Great food, great service. Good value for money considering the quality of the food, definitely recommend.
I seldom write reviews and having spent 20 years in the restaurant biz I am always sympathetic in my approach. My wife and I (a professional chef) had a great experience here which far exceeded our expectations. Great service and very good food - well thought out dishes delicious and hot - hate luke warm food - and good value.
Well done guys good job!
Charming staff, very good food, very comfortable space. We left feeling well fed and well looked after.
Love the food every time we've been and the music tonight was very good . Happily recommend to everyone we know
Lamb was lush, great sauce, nice and relaxed.
Will deffo visit again.
Excellent service from all staff , food excellent apart from ice cream portion which there was only enough to eat in one mouthful . Lovely place already recommended to friends . We will definitely be returning .
This was my second visit to the Kitchen. The first time I went for lunch with friends and we all enjoyed it very much. I had a cod dish (with turmeric, potatoes and asparagus - I can't remember exactly) and it was delicious. I went back on Saturday night with my partner and was quite disappointed. I had a fish curry - which had lots of fish in it - but was a bit rich and didn't have enough vegetables with it. He had a really quite expensive ok burger (£16). They were running an early evening offer which we missed (!) but it meant that the place was quite busy and noisy and the acoustics meant that it was difficult for my partner to hear me across the table! Service was good but overall we were disappointed this time. :(
PS The UBU beer was excellent!
