The service was very good indeed, and the food was delicious. We chose from the offer menu (2courses plus the house cocktail for £20) and the meal was great quality. As was the reasonably priced Malbec, so a great evening. I’m constantly baffled this restaurant isn’t busier.

Very good value set menu, just a pity they don't change it more often. Service was a little amateurish - maybe we got a newbie! Overall, I'd recommend.

Sadly disappointed on the service it was very hit and miss. Their were more children than adults which seem very wrong and should not have been allowed.

A sequence of 5 issues in one visit... nightmare! Some friends and I arrived 15 mins after opening for Sunday brunch booked on open table. We ordered and as pre requested by Open Table I am gluten intolerant. I ordered GFree eggs benedict but what I suspected was a gluten version arrived. When questioned, the waiter was certain it was. I was still dubious so sent it back for confirmation. It wasn’t! They apologised but then said they ran out if GF bread and would I wait whilst they went to the supermarket?? After waiting 1 hour the orders for the rest of my party didn’t arrive whilst everyone else’s in the now full restaurant did. Apparently they confused our order with another table. When it eventually arrived after 80 mins, no toast came with the full English and when asked none ever arrived. Tea and coffee now cold as it was delivered 80 ago. After several complaints to the manager, several apologies we were offered complementary meal. What was intended to be a quick family brunch ended ip being a 2:30 min fiasco!!

Not enough staff. Waited 30 mins for a bottle of wine and took 2 hours for a 2 course meal for 2 people when we were in a rush and the restaurant was at 30-35% capacity. Very disappointed.

Overall it is good but not outstanding. Food overall meets a good standard but without a "Wow", main dishes are slightly too salty. Ordered chocolate and peanut butter mousse as desert, doesn't feel like it is made in house, some ice crystal still appears on the cake, do not recommend this dish at all.

We have dined here a few times before and once again food was great, service was outstanding. We didn’t know children dined for free on weekends and waiter explained, she even charged my phone!
I like the fact that tables are not squeezed closely together, feels spacious and airy. Also staff are child friendly!
Would highly recommend it!

Went here for the first time for breakfast on Easter Monday so it wasn't very busy. A very relaxed atmosphere though and chilled out with great service and very attentive staff. We all had the Full English breakfast which looked quite sparse when it turned up, but then the toast and beans arrived and completed our dish which was very tasty and filling. Coffee was also good (which is a must for me!). Would love to go back there for lunch sometime.

The food was as good as you'd expect from Tom's Kitchen - the bonus here is the courtyard outside. After we'd had a lovely brunch, the children went and ran it off, I got to enjoy a moment of peace, and then everyone had space for desert. Perfect Mother's Day morning!

Have been to this restaurant before and will no doubt go again. However, when I went last week, they must have been having an "off day" as the service was not up to it's usual standard - it is very rare that the chef will actually serve you at your table and the drinks took a very long timew to arrive on two occassions. Like I say, obviously an "off day" which is rare for them.

No real complaints about the food here. Everything we ordered was great. Only one slight gripe was that our sides did not arrive with the mains and we had to ask where they were (after 10 mins) I am not sure they would have arrived if we hadn't prompted.

Spiced Creme Brulee was particularly good though.

Average food, some of our side order didn't arrive until we had nearly finished our main dishes. It's also really noisy in here, no need to have the music so loud at lunch time . Please adjust the volume as the sound bounces off the tiled walls. Good venue for evening drinks but I remain unconvinced for lunch.
