Fantastic restaurant with delicious food. The starters are so imaginative and give you tastes probably not tried at home. Very welcoming atmosphere and friendly helpful staff.

Delicious food, great service and the staff were lovely. Very enjoyable evening, Gary Usher and his team have created a brilliant little bistro and we are very lucky to have them on our doorstep. We look forward to returning after lockdown.

Interesting combinations of seasonal food stuffs which are appealing to the senses. Delicious focaccia bread. Staff are welcoming and helpful. The bistro style decor and ambience make for a relaxed atmosphere and environment in which to eat. We would not hesitate in recommending the restaurant to people who enjoy slightly unusual but well cooked and presented food.

I loved my solo visit to Sticky Walnut! Food was delicious, service was friendly, courteous, efficient and professional, ambience was perfect. All Covid guidelines in place and I felt very safe dining there. Can't wait to return to Sticky and indeed the other 5 of the Elite Bistros when I can again 💜

Loved the menu. Simple fresh ingredients, cleverly combined. It's great when you've eaten veggie without realising. Dessert was like bonfire night in a pudding.

Beautiful meal; the starters and mains were delicious and high quality. Octopus great texture, featherblade beef and the lamb dish (our mains) just melted in the mouth. The wine suggestions were perfectly complementary too. Service could not have been better, we really enjoyed the experience from our arrival to the friendly goodbye. Thank you!

Came for a meal on Friday night. Havnt been for a few years but always remembered how much I loved it. This time I had the pigs head croquette, ham hock and the banana cake. It was all incredible! Our waitress was just lovely and service was brilliant. Will definitely be coming back more regularly!

Food was ok, sauces were very rich on the featherblade of beef and the beetroot ketchup shouldn't have been on the plate in the quantity it was.

Apart from that great little restaurant with great service, sweets were really nice.

We had a table upstairs; tables were well positioned for privacy and covid safety. Staff were great, welcoming, engaging, knowledgeable, and a credit to the business. Our food was delicious and lived up to our high expectations for this renowned restaurant.

One of our all time favorite restaurants since the day it opened. Always guaranteed excellent food and now in times of a pandemic its one of the safest places to eat and I should know as I am a transplant patient so am in the highest risk group and I wouldnt eat just anywhere. Gary and his team have always hit the top note when it comes to food and service and this applies to all his portfolio of restaurants that make up Elite Bistro's
