Almost three years on from its culinary christening, Upstairs has sparked a reputation for casual dining in its finest form. A self-contained dining space, Upstairs offers guests a selection of small plates from our daily-changing menu, all of which are cooked to order from an open island kitchen and designed to share. As well as being available for reservations and exclusive hires, Upstairs proudly plays host to a variety of exciting events and special evenings for our guests to enjoy; from expertly-led wine masterclasses to convivial Sunday lunches and celebrated guest chef dinners. Our aim has always been to offer our guests the opportunity to get closer to the cooking process than ever before, and with the unfaltering passion and dedication of our team, a recently (and very proudly) received Bib Gourmand Award, and the continued support of our wonderful guests, we truly see nowhere to go but up.

Great food, great atmosphere, clearly popular as by 8.50 they’d run out of the two specials we’d ordered but the staff remedied by offering another special at a discount AND apologising profusely for the “disaster” with a round of drinks on the house. Top notch service (for something we didn’t even mind to begin with!) and some first class food. The bbq cauliflower and the sherry trifle were the absolute highlights for us. Great way to celebrate our 7th wedding anniversary. Will be back!

Food was lovely but little meat on the menu. We noticed another couple had some grilled meat which looked delicious so asked the server and were told no - then the people next to us asked and were told yes. We and our disappointed guest then had to watch them eat it ! Not good, at all ...........

we loved the food
service was a little slow to get into the grove
i feel they were not ready to open at 6.30
we had to ask for knapkins, then they forgot to take our order
after the burrata dish i feel you need to change the plate
little things i know
we still had a great time and will be back

I would not say it was terrible, but it was definitely below my expectations.
Some courses were good (salmon, burrata, squid); others definitely disappointing, the dessert in particular: the ice cream you buy at the supermarket is better than the one they gave us. Limited selection of wines by the glass (I assume the purpose is to have you buy an overpriced bottle from downstairs).

Spectacular as always. I have never liked macaroni cheese - but this one was from another world! Made in a light sauce with chestnuts and chanterelle mushrooms. Too die for. The other food was amazing too - salt cod croquettes were delicious, the lamb was pink and melt in the mouth and the burrata with pumpkin so creamy with a crunch. We LOVED it so much that we're going back on Tuesday! Book here you won't be disappointed.

It is always worth having a wide selection of the a la carte dishes. Beautiful flavour combinations that leave the tongue singing! Lovely wine list also - well worth talking to the sommelier. Service upstairs is always a pleasure!

Loved Upstairs! The ambiance was much nicer up rather than downstairs. Tried all but one of the options and they were all great-I especially liked the carrot and the pumpkin options. My son loved the pork cheeks and the lamb was very good also. Friendly staff and two good wines-one nero d'avola and one german riesling. Will be back.

Many restaurants in UK don’t truly cook anymore, they serve up. At Upstairs you can literally see the chefs cooking for you with love local and seasonal food.
FRESH FOOD TASTES BETTER. PERIOD
