Absolutely brilliant time at pidgin on the weekend. We had a lunch sitting at 1, the service was amazing with very knowledgeable staff about the food and the wine pairings and a very peaceful setting.
Every course was outstanding and we had a lovely relaxing 2/3 hour sit down, with out being rushed or anything.

We did 2 normal tasting menus and a veggie one and the vegetarian options where as delicious as the meat and fish courses.

Big thumbs up from us and hopefully can come again so time. So glad to see the place thriving after what has been such a difficult year. Keep it up!

PS the bread roll was I think the best one I’ve ever had.

The fat on the lamb in the main could have been better reduced.

The two dessert courses were ice cold. Uncomfortably so.

My boyfriend and I paid a long awaited visit to Pidgin and we really enjoyed our evening. They change the menu every week and the fare is something a little bit different and exciting. We really enjoyed our meal, there were some real high points in both parts of the lamb main, the cheese course and the desserts. I really didn’t like the raw scallop broth starter, it was overpoweringly salty and you couldn’t taste anything else. I also wasn’t a huge fan of the Sicilian red (S68) we choose, it was very acidic, but that’s our problem for choosing it, not theirs. The rhubarb negroni was very good and the service was fantastic. You can tell everyone working there is really passionate about the project. Despite the starter, I would really recommend visiting as the whole dining experience is very good.

We have been to Pidgin a few times before and the service and quality of food is always excellent. It is unpretentious and feels relaxed, but with attention to details. The ever-changing menu and enthusiasm of the staff to explain the menu in depth makes it feel eventful. I love the pace of when dishes are served meaning that there is time to digest and look forward to the next dish. On this occasion, the deserts were particularly exceptional. All in all, my wife and I were very happy to spend our 20th anniversary here as the first restaurant of the post-covid new year.

Food was absolutely outstanding. I’ve been desperate to eat there for a while now and it did not disappoint. They catered for me extremely well too (veggie) and I didn’t miss out on any of the experience.
Every course was eloquently explained, the atmosphere was fantastic and menu incredible.
I will definitely be returning.

Thank you!

Their caramelised butter is the best I've ever tasted and the cheese at the end was sublime. Third visit now and we are never disappointed.

Faultless food, great service-much needed to take away pandemic blues.
Only small criticism was difficulty hearing our server when she was describing what was on the plate-I think mask + quiet voice+ loud background noise...
Still tasted great either way!
