    I booked Bon Appetit for a special occasion. Downstairs in the restaurant was very noisy and initially staff didn't want to give us a table upstairs so I had to ask another staff member who moved us upstairs. Venue is now Bistro style rather than fine dining and not sure that the decor matches the chandeliers . Food is nice and well presented but the portions are small and you definitely have to order sides of vegetables to have enough food .

    Perfection. As always. 5 of us went for small plates brunch. Everything delicious, could not choose a favourite! Enjoyed a well made Aperol Spritz. And the staff are so welcoming & accommodating.

    We had a wonderful evening in Bon Appetite. Great ambiance - we requested a nice table and were given a lovely one beside the window (it’s nice that they made the effort to accommodate the request especially on a busy Saturday evening). Food was delicious (especially the pork belly). Service was excellent - the staff are extremely friendly. It has changed since the last time I was there and most definitely for the better.

    The food was very disappointing. One of us had a food allergy which was mentioned on booking and arrival and my partner was feeling quite unwell by the end of the evening. The menu was very limited. The staff were lovely but the place has changed drastically since I’ve last been there. Very disappointing as I remember it as a wonderful dining experience in the past.

    Nice staff, very friendly. Nice food One negative side, the wine should be replaced every, ask for a few different options and they were rin out of stock but apart from that, we had a lovely food and a good time.

    Not the Bon Appetit associated with the reviews on this site and others and others. This restaurant is under new ownership and the fine dining and white linen has been replaced by wooden tables, canteen cutlery and a one page menu of poorly prepared food.

    My wife and myself we went to celebrate our 11th anniversary. I have to say that’s a venue we normally use for our celebrations due to the quality of the food and service. In fact if my memory is correct we were seating on the same spot where we originally celebrated our daughter’s Christening.
