First time we had dined at The Stockbridge Restaurant, and we were very impressed. The food was excellent and beautifully presented. I had wild halibut which was cooked to perfection and served with a lovely fennel and orange salad. I was really impressed that seasonal vegetables (my favourite part of any meal) were served with all of the mains - a lovely change from a tiny offering of 2 or 3 wilted spinach leaves, or a half dozen dots of broccoli foam, posing as a serving of vegetables (which is all too prevalent in restaurants these days). The staff were very pleasant, accommodating and efficient. They were absolutely on the ball regarding dietary/allergy needs, which is really important. The restaurant had a lovely warm, relaxed atmosphere, and there was soft jazz playing. All in all an excellent experience. We will definitely be back!

This is a lovely gem of a restaurant. The staff are wonderful and the food is fabulous.
Great place for a romantic date night, small and intimate with lights turned down low. Interior doesn’t have the wow factor like the Witchery or Rhubarb, but the delicious food more than compensates for that.
This place is all about substance over gimmicky style!

Starter - cauliflower was raw rather than pickled
Main - halibut lacked flavour and overpowered by beetroot
Potatoes - hard.
Nice amuse bouche. Nice violet ice cream.

Responded on 31 August 2021

Thanks Amanda , we are so sorry our food wasnt to your liking. the cauliflower is pickled raw so again sorry this wasnt to your taste, our potatoes are new harvest ratte variety which are very dense and waxy , they were boiled and then roasted so again we are sorry this is how you felt. Pleased you enjoyed our violet icecream and thanks for taking the time to review us. best wishes

The only thing which didn’t work quite as we were expecting was that one of the two main dishes was wrong and we ended up eating at different times. The hostess did offer to keep the correct dish warm until the other was ready, but because of the nature of the dish we thought it might have spoilt it. The hostess was super attentive and apologetic which rescued the moment.
Regardless of this inconvenience we still would recommend the place as we felt it ticked all the other boxes.

The food was brilliant - a small menu but our party of 6 had almost everything between us and it was all great. Ingredients are fresh and beutifully blended, presentation was simple but beautiful and taste combinations were great. Service was efficient and friendly without being intrusive. Ambience is classy and cool. Loved it.

Excellent food and service as usual. However it was marred by the fact we were charged the two course price for my 89 year old mother-in-law who could only manage a starter. In a party of five, most of whom had three courses plus wine, pre-dinner drinks and coffee, that seems a little money grabbing.

Very unsure what to expect as it’s not a place I’d heard of previously. It’s a very cosy setting maybe a touch aged but the place settings were immaculate and the greeting was warm.

My friend and I had a 3 course meal and every dish was excellent. The pigs cheek starter was rich and decadent while also inventive and bright with the rhubarb accompaniment. The steak main seemed on the small side but was actually perfect and the mushroom Wellington tasty. To finish I had a chocolate gateaux with salted caramel.

I forget to mention that there was an additional gazpacho and a pre-desert as well as petit fours with our final tea. All in all, it was a truly amazing dinner and well worth the price. (£55 pp in total with a soft drink, tea and bottle of water).

I’d definitely recommend it for a midweek dinner if feeling like you need your spirits lifting by a sumptuous meal.
