Fabulous restaurant owned and run by chef Kevin Bingham who has an excellent brigade of young and enthusiastic staff in the kitchen and front of house. The set menus may not appeal to all but it does mean that they know what they need to prepare which cuts down on wastage and costs. Service was a good pace and each... More

Wow first visit to restaurant 27. from the moment we walked in to the time our taxi arrived the service was faultless! There are not enough adjectives for me to describe the quality of the whole experience it was just perfect. The ambience, the food and service were just about as good as it gets and all in a side...

Our daughter and son in law gave us a gift voucher as a present and what an amazing Gift, the food was excellent and service perfect. Your website does not do your restaurant justice.

Visited restaurant 21 the night before my graduation and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Staff were very accommodating and the food was delicious. Service was a little slow but that didn't bother us as we enjoyed having a relaxing evening. Definitely recommend for a special occasion.

I have dined 3 times at 27. On each occasion I have enjoyed a first class meal with impeckable service. The idea of choosing one of two menus is different but actually works well and gives the chief a chance to really excel, concentrating on a small number of dishes. I have also found that the vegetarian option is alway... More

Tasting menu is like nothing I've ever had before. Spectacular food, really different dinner and staff were very attentive and helpful. You get loads of small portions with different tastes and culinary experiences. Left feeling very full and very happy at having tried so many things.

Went as part of a party of 11 on a Saturday night for my mother's birthday. The food and service were excellent. One of our party has quite severe allergies and they catered for this by providing alternative dishes when needed. Would happily return. We had the taster menu. Would recommend it.

We were staying nearby and we're delighted to find this superb restaurant literally at the end if the street. It was my wife's birthday, and the whole evening was perfect. The room is elegant, the staff are professional and attentive but not pushy. Every course if the tasting menu was delicious, and the amuse bouche and pre-dessert were excellent. We... More
