    Went to celebrate a special occasion and would most definitely return again. Outstanding food and service. Genuinely lovely people. Could not recommend The Sundial enough.

    We are locals and are so lucky to have the Sundial in our neighbourhood. The food is always out of this world. The husband & wife team run such a welcoming, cosy, homely place but with such gastronomic delights! We thought the other tables on a weekday night were also enjoying themselves thoroughly. Will be back soon!

    The eight course taster menu is highly recommended - if you have the time for a leisurely meal. Excellent!

    As usual the experience was superb, from welcome to departure. The quality of food, the varied menu met our expectations. It is not cheap but you get what you pay for, excellent French cuisine and service.

    From the moment you arrive and receive a welcome greeting, you know you are in for a treat. The pre drink and bar area provide a restful and beautifully elehant area in which to peruse the extensive menu. You dont feel rushed and receive help, if needed, to negotiate the a la carte or set menu. We were not disappointed in the set menu, which enhanced a birthday celebration. Service is discrete and professional and food beautifully cooked and presented. Wonderful restaurant for a special occasion.

Highly recommended!
