    My first visit. Friendly and welcoming staff, a good menu choice and well cooked and presented food. Excellent wine list. All round very good - a place worth revisiting.

    Disappointed, was really looking forward to eating here having heard great things about it but left feeling like I’d had a poor quality meal that hadn’t had the right level of finish. Had steak with 4 anaemic looking “chunky chips” and extremely watery peppercorn sauce - starter was cold and lacked seasoning - massive shame both black friars & hinnies who are part of same group were everything that id expected - Dobson & Parnell not so much

    A BYO night. Food great, service very helpful with our one or two intolerances. Only issue is that it was very noisy at times. Might have been a large party celebrating.

    Had an excellent evening for our daughter’s graduation celebration. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Excellent food and a sensible menu with a good range of choices. Very helpful with one of our diner’s allergy. Good range of wines at sensible prices. Nice casual dining ambience. Highly recommended both for casual dining and special events.

    Food quality was excellent. We had the Chalkstream Trout appetizer, followed by Lamb Navarin and BBQ Monkfish tail. Everything tasted fresh and was delicious. Service was also very good. A bit more expensive than other places, but good value overall. Definitely recommended !!
