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.

After a administration issue all was swiftly and generously sorted. The food is exceptional,, we had the 6 course tasting menu, where the food is decided by the kitchen. One of our party is a pescatarian and that was dealt with very well. Each course...that was served was a delight, full of innovation and tasted fantastic. The restaurant is not cheap but well worth the visit to experience the flavours. Staff were professional and friendly, describing each course to us. Do go, you will not be disappointedMore

A smaller than expected restaurant with only about 25 covers. There were 5 staff on with 3 working in the kitchen cooking from scratch. The casual vibe disguises the high quality of the food. Both my partner & I were very impressed by the food....Interesting, tasty, very well presented & satisfying. I had two starters & my partner a steak. We loved it all. The puddings are very often a let down, but, having had such good savory courses we went for it. Both were excellent. Mine in particular was so varied in favour, with ginger puree, a condensed milk icecream with a soy flavour, apple gyoza & a lovely pana cotta. Not a hint of over sweetness. Wonderful stuff. Seeing the chefs at work is interesting & the length of the wait is because they are actually cooking your food as you wait. Highly recommend this restaurant. Book ahead.More

Once again, Adam, Shane and the team surpassed themselves - this time with their five course tasting menu. Beef bon bons; a venison 'kebab'; extraordinary prawns; a Thai curry with seabass and scallop; and rounded off with a salted parfait with a marzipan doughnut and...sweet chilli sauce. Just magnificent and truly memorable. Thanks, guys xMore

Everything was so delicious I was shocked. We travelled from London for my husbands birthday and this was the last restaurant we went to before we left to get the ferry. I wish I visited sooner because I would’ve gone back again. We had the...crispy lamb belly, calamari on black garlic risotto and for the mains it was a special for that day. I think it was pork belly. It was a little pricey but worth it for the taste in my opinion. The sticky toffee pudding was very good too.More

Visited for lunch today (6th) to celebrate a friends birthday. Sometimes, after Christmas, it's difficult to find somewhere that's open, and the staff aren't jaded from a busy Christmas and New Year. Not so at the True Food Kitchen. Great menu selection, food freshly cooked,...and beautifully presented. The staff were friendly, service attentive, and the chef came over to chat at the end. We look forward to visiting again.More

All the 'small plates' were very small so expect to be ordering at least three per person which will make your meal surprisingly expensive. Also, ask to have the dishes served individually otherwise some will be cold. We enjoyed the lamb belly and the beef...ragu and I enjoyed the cheese platter at £12.More
