We consider ourselves regulars at No. 3. We truly enjoy the staff and the food. We absolutely enjoy the rotational menu and the 3 course choices. Very quaint and romantic. Can't say enough how tasty and fresh the food is. The Chef is a magician. Don't wait, go now.

Lovely atmosphere where you have a choice of the rooms inside and the conservatory. Good choice of food which is always well cooked and flavoursome. The fixed price menu is excellent value. Great service.

Some friends of ours told us about this restaurant and four of us decided to give it a try for my husbands birthday. One person had the fish and chips which were well presented, beautifully cooked...

The famous "Yes but!" applies on this restaurant due to the lack of separation between the pub section and the restaurant one. The landlord and staff were very welcoming and professional.The dishes were of good quality, fairly plentiful and, let's say, made with finesse. The acoustics of the dining room is to be improved. However, this address remains a regional... More

Visited on the recommendation of others. Extremely good food and wine list. Staff courteous, welcoming and polite. Service efficient. Location central to Stamford in Pedestrianised area - so need to park in Public car park - certainly worth the walk! Will be returning.

Had high hopes from the other reviews but we weren't over impressed. Starters - I had the potted beef which was more butter than beef, the smoked mackerel pate was allegedly not as good as the one I prepare at home. Mains - monkfish wrapped in parma ham was good but just too many lentils and nothing else. I had... More
