A very busy lunch, the staff were attentive and friendly, I didn't seam to enjoy my meal as usual, and Paul and staff couldn't do enough to amend this.We'll be back as usual next year.

Wow, wow and wow. When I can stop saying wow then I would add this is a sheer taste sensation and delight. From the moment you place your reservation they start to care and made my special birthday lunch very memorable indeed. The food was fantastic and each course was pure joy to eat. Don't miss the coffee and chocolate... More

We visited Number 6 for my birthday. We were greeted by a lovely lady who brought us Prosecco that my husband had pre ordered. She also handed me a birthday card. This was a lovely touch. We both had 3 courses. My husband chose the liver parfait to start and the lamb, both from the a la carte menu. He... More

This was our first visit to no. 6 and most certainly won't be our last. Fantastic food, amazing service knocks the socks off Rick Steins and even better knowing the chef whose name is above the door is working there. Just amazingly fabulous! Keep up the fantastic work.

A return visit to Paul Ainsworth at No. 6 so get ready for the superlatives! No. 6 only does an à la carte menu. There are no hors d'oeuvres/canapé/amuse-bouche or pre-desserts. Frankly, fan-bloody-tastic. Don't get me wrong, I like a tasting menu, but when a Chef and his team focus all of their creative energy in turning out five great... More

Superb food and excellent service. Each mouthful of food was a delight with amazing flavours and delicious textures. Having a very difficult diet was not a problem and for once I felt really special, like someone had made a real effort to cook something especially for me. We will return as often as possible! Vegetarian and gluten free not a... More

Ever since seeing Paul on the great British menu a few years back I wanted to visit his restaurant. I was not disappointed I went at lunch time but went for the full menu. It was all beautifully presented and what it was presented on also. The highlight for me was a ox tail ragout papperdella that was sent out... More

We visited yesterday for my partners birthday. The food was absolutely delicious. Every aspect of each plate was delightful. They knew it was my partners birthday and even went so far as to give her a birthday which is above and beyond. Great venue, lovely welcoming staff and probably the best meal I've had this year. Thank you No. 6... More
