Had our third visit in December and still as good as ever. Allow plenty of time for the tasting menu which is as good as anywhere in London. The downside is we have to wait for tasting menu to be revised... but well worth the wait!

My wife and I had a wonderful time here. From the moment we arrived we were welcomed by the staff who were both friendly and attentive all evening. We had the wine pairing with the meal and the sommelier was extremely knowledgeable and interesting. The wines were excellent too. The food was beautifully presented and matched by the taste, we...

We visited the night before New Year's Eve for the six course taster menu 'celebration meal'. Staff were welcoming and very attentive - ever aware of what needed doing and who needed serving. We had some very attractive gin and tonics, and really enjoyed the flight of wines. The portion sizes were what you would expect from a taster menu,... More

I rarely give 5* reviews these days, but for this place there's no hesitation. We had the short taster menu (£35 at the time) and the food was outstanding, as was the service. The other good part was that there was a wide choice of wine at very sensible prices. We combined the visit here to the pub next door... More

The Lighthouse had been recommended, and after reading the reviews, we were excited about visiting - we were not disappointed in the slightest. After finally finding the restaurant on a dark, foggy night - it is down a narrow driveway behind the Rose and Crown pub - we parked up and went it. The room itself is fantastic - looks... More

Meal for 3, me, my partner and a friend. We booked here after stopping for a drink at the Rose & Crown during a country walk and being shown around by one of the chefs that day. We'd liked the look of the place and had expected the food to be good. We were not disappointed with the 10 course... More

Visited after recommendations from friends and reading Trip Advisor reviews. The food was exceptionally good, as was the customer service. Dishes were visually stunning and the food taste was sublime. Dry ice theatre with the dessert was a bit of fun.

Lovely welcome and very attentive service. Started the meal by selecting from the gin & tonic menu, what a great idea. The menue being a taster that was made up of several courses, all very well presented on the plate and described by the waitress to the finest detail. Courses included a brown onion dish, extremly tasty, a beautifully pan... More

We received a warm welcome and our coats taken upon arrival. Beautifully warm and well decorated inside with a real cosey feel. The Gin selection was excellent and prepared beautifully. We opted for the tasting menu which has to be one of the most incredible things I have ever eaten. The service was fantastic with every detail covered without being... More
