    Everything was fantastic and as big fans of Balfour living close to the Winery - and being Balfour members - we were not disappointed. Food amazing & service fantastic and loved the cranberry gin fizz. The decor was fabulous and on our way out the bar vibe upstairs was great. Orlando was fabulous and our waiter (sorry forgotten his name but he was irish) was superb. Another Balfour triumph and we will return!

    This is rapidly becoming my favourite lunchtime eaterie! A great warmth and welcoming atmosphere - I’m going to try the bar next time as this was buzzing when we came in! Firm favourite for me is the monkfish scampi - it’s ‘to share’ but so yummy I order one for myself! Recommended to try the hogs shepherds pie - so scrumptious and really hearty - perfect for a cold December day! Such a great team - visit if you can - you won’t be disappointed
