Wow!!!!! My friend and I came to the Refuge in Weds at 5pm and we were absolutely blown away by the whole experience. The ambiance, the staff the good as well as the lovely guy on the door. Our dining out habits have been seriously curtailed like all else for 12 months , but we dine out usually.. a lot!! How we’ve missed this hidden gem is beyond us, but what a fabulous way to get back to some normality. We will most definitely be back . It exceeded our expectations massively. Very well done to all

Our first trip out post lockdown 3. The atmosphere was lovely, staff were amazing. The food was delicious and we felt super safe, all tables were very spaced out and all covid guidelines were followed strictly.
Looking forward to returning.
Best sticky toffee pudding I have ever had!

First post lockdown meal out and wow, it was just fantastic. The courtyard is beautiful, loud enough to have an atmosphere but we weren't packed in at all. Food was amazing (the salt cod croquettes were our favourite), brilliant service from the lovely staff and we left very satisfied and content. We will definitely be back.

The service was amazing as soon as we arrived. At first we thought the food would be a little overpriced as some of the vegetable small plates like broccoli are £5 and over, but we were so wrong!! I’ve never tasted broccoli like it in my life! We shared about 8 plates and all of the food was amazing. The atmosphere is super chill and service was 10/10. Our waitress Megan was so helpful and talked us through the menu and had fab recommendations. Would definitely recommend visiting here!
