Food as always is outstanding. But I must say they need to place more COVID rules onsite, temperature test & Staff to wear mask correctly. Ladies toilets are in urgent need of drainage work to be carried out if COVID don’t kill you the smell coming from them will disgusting.

2nd time here, been waiting nearly 2 years to find the right occasion to come and it was with family got my 30th. Unfortunately, they didn't have the one thing I was waiting years for, the lobster!!! Not sure how a restaurant of this elk can not have it so it really did let down my experience, it's basically the only thing I've wanted since the first time I went. Besides that, everyone enjoyed their meal and service.

There are so many regulars and that tells you everything. The food is always outstanding as is the service. I have been told by my friends the fish, seafood and beef are equally outstanding. It is always difficult to recommend a good fish restaurant, but go no further, this is the one. I am a vegetarian which is no problem at all. It is such a great community restaurant but they have to share it with everyone else as people come from long distances to have a meal at Smiths.

It always has a great buzz!

Thanks Greg, it just doesn't happen without a great owner.

Everyone enjoyed their food. Just a shame the halibut was overcooked. I’ve had it before and it was cooked perfectly. So very disappointing.

Price's have risen quite a lot in the last few years and whilst the food and service are still good I find that the cost is a factor when making a booking.

Some attractive embellishments for the festive menu: the highlight for me was the glazed Sicilian lemon curd tart & frozen blackberry yogurt. You'd think that all of that would be a little too tangy, but the elements complement each other perfectly.

Food is fantastic and service superb. Bar area closed due to Covid did taint the overall experience a little but not the restaurant’s fault.

Excellent food as always and the service second to none! Fantastic!
Only disappointment was no bar area understandably, no pianist or music and someone in close proximity with what can only be described as a whole bottle of aftershave tipped upon them!

The service and staff were attentive and very friendly. The food was simply amazing. We all came away thinking it was probably the best meal we had ever had and we have been to some amazing restaurants and places. The soups, oysters and lobster thermometer were delicious. The view over the Thames was lovely too.
