I booked the private dining room for a surprise birthday dinner for my Husband's 50th Birthday. We had a lovely evening, my Husband loved it, as did all the guests. The food was delicious - the best guinea fowl I have ever tasted and amazing home made breads. The private dining room is really nice to hire if you are... More

I booked the whole restaurant for a leaving dinner of 20 people. Armando was very helpful and flexible in setting up the arrangements; made some good suggestions on the wine. On the evening the service was excellent, being flexible and discrete. The food was very good - I had sardines, lamb and rhubarb. Many of my guests have positively commented... More

I had not visited for a while but this time a group of work colleagues gather in the upstairs room. The staff were excellent as they were not hurrying the group, and the food was just Fantastic. The group I was out with were not the quietest of people so it was great to have the room and it was... More

We eat out most weeks often Asian cuisine, decent Sunday lunches and fine dining with over 100 years between in the industry feel reasonably qualified to understand food and expectations. We took our friend to 22 as a treat, having not eaten there for a number of years not sure what to expect, the hospitality seemed a bit flat upon... More

Restaurant 22 is such a lovely venue with friendly staff and incredible food. We enjoyed 3 amazing courses, which were split up by amuse bouche and sorbet. The food was such a high standard and very well presented. Highly recommend!

I have eaten at Restaurant 22 a few times and the food and service are always excellent. The layout of the dining area is a bit like having a meal in the sitting room of an old friend. The food is outstanding and the staff amiable and attentive without being overbearing. A great place to have a romantic meal.

I love this place. We come maybe once or twice a year and I love it so much. When we walked in Armando immediately greeted us and offered us the same table as last time (2016) I was so impressed he had remembered. He is so personable and always asks how we are and what is new! The menu was... More

A spontaneous decision to go and try it out. Better than your average pub grub but could be so much more. Room very cold with fleeces kept on throughout the meal. "Veloute" curious mixture and bread rather heavy. Onion soup poor, but sardines good. Guinea fowl a bit tasteless and why chowder was used to describe a particular course remains... More

Came here with a group of colleagues from work and had a lovely evening dinner. The food, wine and service were all superb. Will definitely return. Thank you.

I organised a meal for myself and nine colleagues just before Christmas. The three course meal (four including a delicious amuse-bouche!) came to £23 a head, complete with homemade Guinness, saffron and cranberry breads. The wine was delicious, and the service was above-average. I'm heading back in three day's time and can't wait! Would definitely recommend.

Thank williamlloydevans
