We had our wedding ceremony downstairs (the area is called the dining room, it's between the restaurant and the deli) and a private dinner upstairs (mezzanine) for 40 people. Dawn was extremely helpful and accommodating all the way through our planning, nothing was too much trouble. On the night everything ran very smoothly, the waiters were friendly and helpful, and...

Food was good. Service was good. We went here as part of restaurant week and ate off the set menu. We did however order wine. They shoved us into a corner which wasn't great. We also had to ask for steak knives to cut the main as we were given butter knives. The wine glasses are big and thick which... More

All five meals where well below average, the venue and staff made up for the poor food experience but if this is the food standard here, Simon's needs a new Chef and i mean "yesterday". What a let down as they also used to have a grass area for the kids which is not stones and no play area!

Went there after a wine tasting and were seated promptly. It was a nice day so we sat outside but there is a massive fireplace inside so I guess cold days are not a problem. Ordered starters and went with the Fish Cakes and Calamari as mains and it arrived in good time. Both meals were great and the chips... More

Have visited Simons on several occasions and always enjoy the ambiance (fire), wine and the food. Whilst not particularly fine dining, it's good fare and the combo of setting, wine and food are worth retuning to.

My second visit here, first time was lunch (and the peri peri prawns I still dream of) and this time dinner for my birthday, Could not wish for a better birthday dinner venue. Love the setting and the menu is so good and varied. My mussels were divine as was the wine. Easy to park, friendly staff and lovely atmosphere.... More
