                                                        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.

                                                        I used to love going here , I must have been 20 or more times but lately it has gone down hill. The portions have gone smaller and mistakes are common. Sorry guys , hope you get back to the way it was in 2019.

                                                        Very nice dinner and good service. Was a little warm.

                                                        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.

This restaurant is under new ownership and the fine dining and white linen has been replaced by wooden tables, canteen cutlery and a one page menu of poorly prepared food.

                                                        Food was so disappointing. Totally over cooked fish and deep fried scampi

                                                        We were there for lunch. The dining room is large and airy, with plenty of space between tables. The food was absolutely gorgeous and the service was excellent. I can't wait to go back there, but it might be a while now with the restrictions in January.

Love the refurb and the colour scheme in the place. Restaurant is now upstairs and it’s so cosy. Food cooked to perfection and portions just right. Will be back.

                                                        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.

                                                        Very good food at appropriate prices. Service not at the same level. Got a table next to the entrance to the kitchen, hence a lot of noise, light and different smells.

                                                        Great experience except that they couldn’t locate my booking from Open Table. Otherwise very nice and would recommend.

                                                        Always enjoyed my dining at Bon Appetit. The manager and host is the best.

                                                        Went to dinner on Thursday and found out cocktails were half price and they were wonderful. There was a surprise tasting menu but decided to order off the menu. The courses took a while to arrive but everything was prepared well and flavorful.

                                                        We went for my fiancé’s birthday. Food was great but starters are a bit “simple”. A bit pricey but would recommend.
