Wow! What a pleasure and a great find. We arrived for Sunday lunch and sat in the relatively cool conservatory while others chose to roast in the beautiful garden. The well stocked bar offered an excellent choice of aperitifs while we chose food and wine to match our selection. The restaurant dining room is tastefully decorated and provides a sophisticated environment in which to enjoy the superb food. Great service from staff who were clearly proud of their restaurant. Looking forward to a repeat visit soon

We are regular customers and normally enjoy every visit. We always comment on the high quality of food and service and the restaurant's consistency. However, on this particular occasion, the main course was a disappointment as was the reaction when I commented on the inedible pieces of meat I left on the plate. No apology and certainly no discount on the bill! A pity.

My sons took me here for a birthday lunch. The food, service and ambience were all first class. The welcoming, charming maitre d’, the attentive staff and the food are only part of dining here. It’s the touches like the amuse bouche, choice of breads and sweet meats with coffee that turn a reasonably priced set menu into a fine dining experience. Just hope I get the chance to go again.

Have visited this restaurant over the years several times and this was the first disappointment. The service was very lack lustre and the food not up to the usual standard. Added to which a rather substantial over edition to the bill was treated in a rather cavalier way.

Over several years we have always gone to the Wild Mushroom for any special occasion which they made even more special.
Upon returning on Sunday for lunch after a break off several months - nothing has changed the food was as usual excellent as was the staff.It is my favourite restaurant in this part of the world they made an ordinary Sunday Lunch into something special.

We have dined here on several occasions over the last few years and generally enjoyed ourselves.
The staff are excellent and the there is general feel good factor with the warm welcome and excellent service.
However the menu is now very dated and it appears that the kitchen has a very limited repertoire and the menus tend to repeat themselves,and lack innovation and tend to use the same ingredients in several dishes.
In view of the location more local fish would be nice and more attention to seasonal food would not go amiss.

We enjoyed a really lovely birthday lunch, beginning with drinks in the conservatory bar and ending there again with coffee and home made complementary sweet nibbles. The food was deliciously memorable and the staff could not be more attentive. My son even had his desert plate iced with birthday wishes in chocolate.

I like the attention to detail, such as the lovely canapes and petit fours etc. The manager had a good sense of humour and was attentive in an unobtrusive way...one of our party was soon to be visiting Paris and he was very helpful in suggesting the best places to go. The food is consistently good and we always enjoy our visit to the Wild Mushroom.
