What a fantastic meal in an absolutely delightful venue! The service was welcoming, friendly and homely. Nothing was too much effort! The food was faultless by far the best butter chicken I’ve ever had - I want that sauce to come out of my taps at home!! We’ll definitely be back.

We did the £65pp festival summer menu and it was amazing! Although the restaurant is on the pricier side it was worth every penny and was a great twist on Indian food. Highly recommend and the service was impeccable!!

Some excellent food, part good/partly poor service and for this price that’s not good! Unfortunately I was poorly straight after the meal, but I hope it’s not the food as my wife was ok, but she had different drinks and did not eat the fish! Served meat to us as well by mistake, we are vegetarian

All courses were fab except from pork belly main (would have preferred not burnt - Manager apologetic and got money off final bill) but overall food was really good. Staff were attentive and polite, overall service was excellent. Will definitely visit again😀

It was a Birthday celebration and we decided to choose the Festival of Food special menu. All 4 of us thoroughly enjoyed our individual selections.

The food was delicately spiced & extremely tasty. In addition, the overall ambiance was ideal for our family celebration.

Excellent food and wine in a really interesting (and beautiful) building and dining room.

Was disappointed not to be brought the full tasting menu to order from, even though we had booked the early evening menu. We needed to specifically ask for it. We had also to ask again for the right menu when we were ordering our deserts, as this time we were presented with a special "wedding" menu.

The bar area is rather shabby but nice enough for a pre-meal drink, the main dining room fantastically restored.

Simply outstanding in every way. Not only is the venue utterly beautiful, but the food is glorious, interesting and wholly different to anything you’ve eaten anywhere! Add in a service level that is discreet but stylish and informative, and you’ll understand why Cinnamon Club remains a favourite. Impossible to fault, and we can’t wait to return.
