Super Sunday lunch.. roast beef dinner was amazing... super friendly staff... our waitress couldn't have done more for us 😊. Great afternoon 😊
We sat up stairs which was very quiet and relaxed. Wonderful tasting food. We all enjoyed our separate dishes. Great service. Perhaps the staff could have worn masks
Beautiful venue , great staff , food was outstanding.. highly recommended
Everything was just perfect. I’ve wanted to try this restaurant for ages. I thought it was actually better than Scott’s in London as the tables weren’t as close together. Our waitress was really lovely and attentive, the decor is really good but not over the top.
The only negative was no bar area and a little bit rushed at the end
We really enjoyed our visit to Smiths for our anniversary. Service and food was excellent. Would recommend this restaurant. We will definitely return
Lovely food. Good service with friendly staff. We had a lovely evening!
Can't fault Smith's. For a special occasion it's unbeatable.
Always excellent both food and service. How they keep it so consistent is a real bonus - you know what to expect and you're never disappointed.
Lovely……. as always
We went to Smiths for lunch as part of our silver wedding anniversary celebrations. We met at this restaurant 26 years ago.
Food and service were excellent, as always. We have never been disappointed at this restaurant and will definitely continue to visit them in the future.
After a mix up with our booking, the staff sorted it quickly and where professional.
The food is amazing and the restaurant is very well run, clean and fresh.

Celebrated our 30th Wedding Anniversary last night; so lovely to go somewhere on a Tuesday where there’s a really good atmosphere. Food was absolutely delicious and service was excellent.
Spoilt slightly by a very noisy patron who was heard talking loudly to some people she recognised on the other side of the restaurant which was heard by everyone - even the people she was talking to were rolling their eyes
Fantastic food, service and atmosphere. Will definitely return.
We visit Smiths regularly and the quality of food, service and ambiance is always excellent.

Food and service was amazing, beware though directed to cabs waiting outside restaurant by staff who tried to rip us off telling us to pay balance on his own bank card from wallet £40 for 5 miles qt 9.45 on a friday night guys name was murat....prebook a cab
We loved the evening. We were given a lovely table instead of the one At the door which Was given originally. We really liked the music too. Very attentive staff
Great food, as always! We sat upstairs for the first time and pleasantly found it to be a little less ‘busy’ than downstairs.
Our return visit was even better than the first! Nothing to fault from the moment we were greeted to the moment of our departure. We will return as soon as we are able.
Fantastic service and excellent food complimented by a good Wine Cellar
Great service and impressive food.
A few more unusual fish on menu would’ve been appreciated but equally fish was delicious
Exceptional fresh food served at a pleasant pace with a smile in a lovely setting…….you get what you pay for!!
