This is the first time we have used this little gem of a restaurant. On a cold New Year's Eve we were quickly welcomed to our table and invited to have a glass of Prosecco accompanied by a basket of different breads and a good olive oil and balsamic dip. The dinner began with a small cup of potato, garlic... More

Each serving kept coming wondering when it would stop but every course was cooked to perfection. Cod was superb and the venison was the best i have had. My wife and friends also had a great evening. Set us up lovely to drink in the new year. Only negative comment was the wait between a couple of courses we felt... More

The food is absolutely amazing here, with a really nice personable touch. A small menu which still caters for everyone. Lovely service with small unique extra touches!

Great little restaurant. Took the parents for a evening meal on a Sunday. Only a small menu on a chalkboard; but a good variety catering for most people. Starters were great, soup of the day and mackerel pate! Mains were Cod, Steak, Veg and wild boar; so a wide variety. All of them were excellent. I had the steak and... More

Stumbled across this small restaurant whilst trying to decide where to eat. Small menu on a chalkboard but a good selection to suit all. My husband had the lamb which he said was so tender he has not eaten such a good cut of lamb as this for a long time! I had the cod which was very fresh and... More

We visited yesterday for dinner, not having been to Number 3 for ages. We were made very welcome and had good service throughout the evening. The chalkboard menu is creative and the goats cheese ice real starter delicious. The wine list is compact but well selected and has a good range off wines to accommodate all tastes and budgets. Number... More

We ate at this lovely restaurant on a Saturday night as a couple myself having previously visited for business. The owner was welcoming and friendly and despite being busy the service was good. Menu is handwritten on chalkboards and the restaurant has a good selection of wines. The food here is superb cooked in a kitchen just off the dining... More
