Nothing really to complain about, but it’s not elegant enough to be as expensive as it is. Food is fine, staff are kids mostly. Gimicky “self service “ ordering is what it is. Lots of loud drunk people trying very hard. Genuinely made me feel...More

Milsoms has maintained and even improved its own high standards over many years. As usual lunch was very good. A wide range of choices and the food well prepared, cooked and presented.

Milsoms is the more relaxed sister restaurant to Le Talbooth. The atmosphere is buzzing, no reservations are needed. You just turn up - and wait if necessary. But well worth it. Great food - very helpful and attentive staff. Well worth a visit!

After fine dining at Le Talbooth the previous night we decided to have a distinctly less formal Saturday night at Milsoms restaurant, altogether livelier and absolutely heaving, glad we had booked. We shared a Greek style Meze to start, which was absolutely superb, followed by...More
