We recently visited the Palmichael restaurant for a company meal. I cannot praise it highly enough and everybody had a great meal. The steak I had cam surrounded in sauce and was cooked to perfection, this is one of the best steaks I have ever had in a restaurant. The accompany vegetables were also cooked to well with a bite...

We have a meal at The Palmichael every 6 to 8 weeks, and it is always an excellent evening. My wife chose sea bass and I had a medium fillet steak with an extra side of onion rings. Delicious. The house red is lovely, the draught beer is Peroni, but if you ask you can have Old Speckled Hen in... More

Great meal as ever taste wise, front of house very good but schoolgirl waitresses in need of training. Didn't listen, connect with us or even raise a smile. Somebody needs to tell them they are there to make our experience enjoyable. We had the sharing starter and the junior waitress plonked a dirty plate onto our unfinished food and started... More

Came here with local friends who told us they love this place. Well we did too after our visit. A great menu cooked and served to perfection. Even the recommended wine was wonderful. Service was quick and pleasant. Very busy - you will have to book, but very much worth it. The calves liver starter was declared excellent by my... More

We last visited this restaurant some 10 years ago and decided to try it again. We weren't disappointed as the menu was extensive and the food was out of this world. Of particular note was the amount of gluten free options to choose from. We will definitely not leave it another 10 years before returning!

I took my fiancée to The Palmichael for our 2nd anniversary (which happens to be on Valentines Day), and we decided to eat from the Valentines menu. The food was spectacular (especially the steak!). The service was attentive but unobtrusive, and made the evening into a memorable one. We even finished with a cocktail each, a perfect end to a... More
