It was my first visit to the Glasshouse. It came highly recommended and absolutely lives up to its reputation. The staff were friendly and attentive and the food was delicious, creative and seasonal. I will certainly go again.

It's lovely to know a restaurant that you can rely on when you want a place for a special occasion - or indeed for a self indulgent treat . I have used The Glasshouse for many years and it never fails to deliver. I was there yesterday and the food was so good (crab & scallop ravioli - just mouth watering!) that I'm returning on Sunday ! The staff are always welcoming . Feel lucky to have such an excellent restaurant so close.

Fantastic food, beautiful presentation. We had a 2030hrs table and the restaurant was quite empty by the time we left around 1045, so maybe worth going earlier next time.

Amazing food, perfect night out with wife. Only one small thing to improve, we were waited on by circa 5-6 different people so ever really know who was our person. Personal preference is to have just 1-2 go to people, it reduces the repetitive asks.
Will definitely be going again.

Everything we ate was amazing. Cheeseboard experience was definitely the highlight! Black pudding and apple tart tartine incredible.

Only downside, I was a bit disappointed with the sommelier, bit too focused on cost, and focused on speaking to me rather than all at the table. Though, that said, wine we drank was excellent. And Port to finish was best I’d ever had for my palate, not too sweet.

Another great meal at The Glasshouse. I’m not vegetarian, but often choose the vegetarian starter as it is a bit different and always delicious, as is all the food. Lovely service too.

Delicious... It was our first visit & we are so glad we made the effort. The brisket starter was absolutely divine & have given it a glowing reference to our friends. We will be back.

The Glasshouse has maintained a high standard for as long as I've been a regular, which is twenty years. The food is consistently good and the staff are always friendly. My one problem is they do two servings and the turn around is a bit too fast between starters and main courses. I would like to savour things a little.

Lunch menu quite good value at £45 for 3 courses. Beautifully presented and lovely food. Service a bit haphazard - occasionally hard to catch someone’s eye when wanting something. But overall a lovely lunch and would definitely eat here again

The Glasshouse is one of our favourite Restaurants in the Southwest. The food is excellent accompanied by impeccable service. The wine selection not over the top, just right in quantity and quality. I highly recommend it.

As always, the service was first class.
The food is extremely flavourful and looks like a picture on the plate.
Delectable, I cannot praise it more.
There is an extensive wine list which, unusually, has a large list of half bottles.
One of the great restaurants!

Excellent and good value food. Drinks expensive though range good. Table layout mostly poor - one person in most tables for two had to face the wall.

the food is consistently amazing. this is over third visit in the last year and every time we have had a great experience. the dishes are well presented, the staff is very attentive and flexible. I have now had the fish, lamb and chicken and each dish has been excellent.

this is an upper end restaurant but the food is still very filling and well worth the price! We did not have space for dessert which was a shame!!

Had to ask to have water refilled.The interval between the first and main course was too long .On enquiring,we were told....
‘It will be ready when the chef has it ready’
This was the wrong answer.
The right answer is
‘I will go and check’
The bread or butter were too salty.The bread was underwhelming.
Food was top class.
