We absolutely loved this place, stumbled across it by accident and were very glad we did, lovely location. Lovely generous portions and great friendly service by Courntney. Only complaint is that starter and main course were so good we couldn’t fit in dessert!

Enjoyed an excellent lunch today at Restaurant 43. Everything was superb: food, wine, restaurant and ambience. Hits the spot every time. Waitress (unfortunately didn’t pick up the card with her name on) very friendly and excellent service all round. Thank you.

Cane here in a party of 12. The food was really good and the staff very efficient and friendly. Some of our party were vegetarian and their nut roasts looked delicious too. Would definitely recommend.
