Absolutely rubbish food! The carrot and parsnip soup tasted like canned soup and the wagyu burger could have easily been any average Angus burger. The quality of the food doesn’t reflect the price!

Although, they do very good red wine. The Pinot Noir - New Zealand is worth every sip and penny!

You cannot have a restaurant with a single toilet. I paid too much to be waiting 10min to wash my hands before I eat. I'd expect this from a train station, not a restaurant serving a £10 glass of champagne.

I booked this restaurant to dine with some good friends we don't live local so relied on the website and hoped i had chosen well. The name of this restaurant suggested to me that it was a place to ... drink in a champagne bar then go for dinner in the restaurant afterwards, so it was a big let down when we walked in, you could think you had walked into a small takeaway restaurant with a tiny bar there was no bar seating at all. The staff were absolutely fine and friendly but the fact was there was no where to sit pre-dinner so we ended up in a trendy new bar / cafe around the corner. We did consider cancelling our reservation however we did go back for dinner and the food was good.

We went on a Saturday night and as it is quite a small room the large party of birthday revellers did disturb us initially. However they left and we were able to enjoy a wonderful meal , in peace. There were six of us and every one was impressed by the quality of the food. The service was very good too. Would return but perhaps midweek or at lunchtime.

I have eaten at silkroom multiple times the first time I ate here was probably around a year ago. Every time I have visited again since then it is slowly rolling down hill. Quality of food. Even flavouring and proportion sizes. The lamb as a main course was what I ordered the first time I went and it was beautiful I think that may be the only good thing on the menu..

Greeted nicely by the chap at the door and promptly shown to our table. Service was reasonable thoughout our meal but I found the restaurant really quiet and lacking atmosphere with the same Michael Buble album playing in the background. The food was on the pricier end of the scale, which is partly why I’d picked the restaurant as I was expected it to be very good but it was an average experience. Food quality was ok but for what you paid the portion sizes were on the small side and to charge £2.50 per person extra for peppercorn sauce when you’re already paying £25 each for a steak (albeit a good size) and some potato wedges is very disappointing. Vine ripened tomatoes didn’t come on the vine with a small bunch of rocket as the side salad.
Chose to go straight for a main and save ourselves for a dessert but when the dessert menu appeared it was very uninspiring, so opted against it.

Booked an early evening menu of 3 courses on Saturday night of 28th October 18. Poor table choice initially given when we were the first customers in restaurant. Slightly better but table was too small. Food was excellent and bottle of Verve Cliquot brilliantly chilled and served. First impressions very good and certainly return and also happy to recommend.

Sorry. Its dreadful. The staff are good, but

- Wobbly table held steady by napkin and veneer peeling off
- 4 king prawns in the starter for £9.99 (expensive)
- Lamb shank (its £4 from brakes) at £18 ;-(
- £100 quid for two ppl.
- my partners £24.99 fillet was very poor, looked like pedigree chum

Sorry. there needs to be a lot of improvement here.
