Having been to The Oliver Twist restaurant before, I couldn’t wait to go back again! The food is absolutely outstanding, and so reasonably priced for the quality you receive. The staff are attentive and welcoming, with barely a 5 minute wait between finishing and your plates being cleared, even when the restaurant was full. The drinks are cheap and with a good variety, we were offered a drink upon arrival and this was brought to our table after being seated. The atmosphere is lovely and warm, and everything is impeccably clean and tidy! My partner is a 3 rosette chef and personally asked the chef to come out in order to thank him for such high quality food. Words simply cannot explain how incredible the whole experience of this restaurant was.

Excellent service, despite it being our waitress Jane's, 1st ever shift, in the restaurant. She was very friendly and my 6 year old grand daughter liked her, as she listened to her and took her order (as if she was an adult).She took trouble to get the dessert for her just right although it was not a real choice on the menu.
We had both chosen the Sunday roast and were not disappointed, Very tasty. We will of course visit again.

Have been here before and the food is always good and staff friendly and efficient. The only disappointment of this visit was that we were seated in bar area rather than the restaurant. We booked Saturday as we know restaurant area is in use then. Perhaps I should have booked by phone rather than online and I could have asked about this.
