Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

wow...WoW... WOW! Hubby & I came to celebrate his birthday. Booked the Winter triptych package (10 courses & B&B) was it worth it ABSOLUTELY! From start to end our experience at Sat Bains establishment excelled our expectations. I knew it would be great but it...was an exceptional & unique experience. Yes it is pricey, but worth every penny, amazing food experiece, fabulous interior & great exploring the grounds. Most important was every staff member went above & beyond to welcome & ensure you had an amazing time. Very knowledgable in their service provided. Also added bonus getting to meet Sat Bains in person who came out to wish my hubby Happy Birthday, thank you team Bains for ensuring we had a wonderful time. Special thanks to reception staff, Harry, Thomas & Jake. Also another the tall gent serving with fab hair. Thank youMore

We returned to RSB (our third visit this year) to celebrate my birthday and Christmas - it was December 23rd., the last day for Sat and the team before the Christmas holidays. This time we opted for the 10 course tasting menu, and my wife...had the wine pairing - which, she proclaimed, enhanced each dish perfectly. As usual we discovered different dishes this time, such as venison and the squab pigeon (see photo) which was absolutely delicious. I was particularly pleased to see my favourite scallop dish on the menu! The staff all go the extra mile to ensure that guests are made to feel welcome, and their friendly smiles go a long way to guaranteeing that. Innes, the maitre d is a great asset to RSB and is always on hand to answer queries etc. in a friendly manner. Will we be returning for a fourth visit? - you bet we will!.More

The food served don’t deserve 2 Michelin stars, I was so excited to be dining here for lunch. After dining at many one star restaurants my imagination was going wild at what we’d be served. The hors d’ oeuvres were underwhelming, one was a jelly...sweet smothered in sugar! The bread was cold and was not fresh at all. The fish course was served on some sort of crust, this tasted stale. The fish itself did not of the texture of fish and was tasteless. As the dishes were brought out the more disappointed we became. Not one dish had a flavour explosion or brought any happiness. Not one dish seemed complete and everyone lacked something. As for the candy floss dessert, i tried, it failed not worth the calories. We paid the £440 bill for 2 and left speechless and hungry. Giving this restaurant 2 Michelin stars is a license to print money. If you’d like a Michelin experience half the price try Adams, Upstairs or even Simpsons in the midlands.More

What a fantastic way to spend a Wednesday evening, @chefs table with the man himself in situ. We couldn’t and didn’t want to find fault with the restaurant as everything from venue, decor, staff and food, were all top draw! Part way through our dinner...we were invited outside into a very special greenhouse with lots of locally grown herbs and a demonstration on how to prepare one of the courses. Not only was this relatively unique, but it added to the theatre of our experience. I would highly recommend RSB and can’t wait to return!More

First time at a Michelin star restaurant and was not dissatisfied in any way , we stayed over in one of the rooms and everything was amazing. The staff are amazing and will do anything to make your stay and meal special , their knowledge...of all products is second to none .. with a friendly , helpful and genuine manner . We had the 10 course tasting menu which was so filling .. we enjoyed all of the course but in particular I loved the potato course , the small soup on the first course and the scallop. My partner loved the fish main course . The bread and butter is also divine !! We stayed for breakfast.. the homemade crumpets and honey .. wow !! Overall it was amazing .. well worth the money , we would love to go back and also try other Michelin star establishmentsMore

Lunch. On an industrial estate just outside Nottingham under pylons and a flyover. Where do you go on your anniversary when your favourite restaurant is fully booked? A little local we know that we've been going to for the last 25 years. When we arrived,...the staff were all smiles and jovial. It was like they were expecting us. After drinking our complimentary glass of champagne, we were guided to our table. Not in the dining room,oh no. We were seated at the kitchen bench After a few snacks, they led us to the greenhouse. What for? A pizza 🍕 that's what for. After that , we were seated back in the kitchen to carry on with the rest of our lunch. The food is sublime, and every dish is a taste sensation from this 2 Michelin Star restaurant. As we were trying to leave, Sat insisted we took a copy of a magazine that they had actually put him on the front cover of. Thank you to all the lovely staff for such an exceptional meal and service.More

Yesterday we had lunch at Restaurant Sat Bains to celebrate my wife's birthday - our second visit. The entire experience was wonderful, not so much a meal, but a gastronomic adventure or journey - exploring the five tastes which are the basis of Sat Bains'...culinary ethos. Perhaps needless to say, all 8 courses were exquisite and interesting - true Michelin 2 star quality! Aside from the cuisine, the premises are tastefully and beautifully appointed, and the staff are all resplendent in their tweed livery - and incidentally they are all thoroughly professional and cheerful. Our waiter was Thomas, and the sommelier was Harry - both should commended for their enthusiasm and expertise. Innes, the restaurant manager, was friendly and welcoming - he is always attentive and clearly loves his job.. and that comes across very strongly. We have dined at other Michelin starred establishments such as Le Manoir Aux Quat' Saisons (several times) and Il Gallo d'Oro in Madeira, and we now have a new favourite with RSB... we will be returning, and soon!More

Come with us to Restaurant Sat Bains🍾 What an incredible 24 hours at Restaurant Sat Bains. Every detail carefully thought out, all of which made for a wonderful stay. Food We had the 10-course tasting menu with a couple of extras. The food was out...of this world. All grown on site in the restaurant gardens (which you are encouraged to explore in your own time), all curated with such care and detail that each course is not only a taste sensation but also fun along the way. Drink The wine list is extensive and there are cocktails, beers and spirits on offer as well. Each table is assigned its own Somellier and our guy, Harry really knew his stuff. He was also an absolute gentleman and made our evening even more lovely. Stay The Restaurant has 8 rooms ranging from standard doubles, superior rooms and suites. We stayed in room 3 which was a superior room. It was designed and decorated beautifully throughout with thoughtful extras such as a lint roller, shoe shine, hair straightners and an extra bottle of milk when we returned that evening. The bed was comfortable and the roll top bath made for a lovely relaxing soak before getting ready. Staff The staff are what make this place so special. Every single person, from check in to check out can't do enough for you. From the minute you park your car someone is heading over to help with your case whilst the other is heading to the kitchen to gather some sweet treats for your room. The team are fully on hand to make your meal and/or stay a special one but for us a special shout out must go to our waitress Natalia, our Somellier Harry and Angus who made us the most incredible mini pesto pizzas as part of our 'surprise course' in the greenhouse. Sat We have admired Sat's cooking for years now and visiting his 2 Michelin star restaurant was something that's been on our to-do list for a while. The best part of our whole stay was seeing him through the glass dart around in the kitchen in his chef whites, coming out to chat to guests and realising that the guy who's cooking you've loved for years is actually out there cooking your dinner. It's definately not cheap, but for a special occasion, it's worth every penny 👌More

Visited for a birthday celebration and stayed in room 1. The service was excellent, staff were so friendly both formally and informally around the site. The garden is lovely and the wood burning stove house was fantastic, cosy and welcoming. We had the ten course...taster menu with the classic wine flight. The food was excellent and varied, the staff friendly and attentive offering clear details about the food. The matching drinks were very well selected and the sommelier was particularly attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. The room was lovely and comfortable. All in all it was a great experience, despite the price and will provide us with some wonderful memories.More

The 15+1 course tasting menu was very well composed and thoroughly enjoyable. We are always a bit sceptical about modern locally-sourced British food as it can be dull, but this was anything but - wonderful seasoning and spices and layers of flavour in every plate....Very impressive. Amazing front of house team, great sommelier, superb Umami cocktail, and the room and breakfast were also excellent. Most enjoyable.More

Absolutely fantastic fine dining experience which definitely lived up to the hype! I found the cuisine and wine flight more daring and challenging than other 2* restaurants and the service more ‘fun’ than is typically associated with such places. The whole experience oozed character and...personality and I ate the best savoury and best sweet dish I’ve ever had (potato, caviar and ash and the chocolate dessert) One tip if you’re going soon, choose the sole over the grouse for the main; it’s sublime!More
