“Great Food”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

We didn't stay here, so this is only a review of the food.

Firstly, the decor is very up-market - lots of grey Farrow & Ball with silver ornamentation. Classic and classy, while not being ostentatious in the slightest.

Secondly, we found the prices gave excellent value for money considering the fantastic quality. A couple of the most beautifully presented starters - my scallops on belly pork were memorable. For two starters, 2 mains, 1 bottle of Malbec (which was superb), a half of beer, an additional glass of white and a couple of coffees came to only £93, including a 10% tip.

Thirdly, the quality of the food was excellent. This was one of the best meals my wife and I have ever had. No complaints whatsoever.

Lastly, service. Prompt, courteous and efficient. I know it's the done thing these days to call guests "guys", but I do prefer sir and madam - a generational thing, but not a big issue.

All-in-all an excellent establishment for an evening meal.

“Absolutely Recommend It”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

It was an absolutely delightful dinner. Warm and relaxing atmosphere, well designed menu, friendly service. It has one of the best scallops I have ever had in a restaurant and the steak is beautifully done as well.

We stayed in the Austwick Hall and only found last minute that only one out of the two local restaurants was open on Monday and fully booked and had to look for alternatives in the nearby villages. We did not expect such a relaxing restaurant with sophisticated cuisine (both taste and layout) at all. So it was indeed a lovely encounter. The owners are very kind and the lady gave us a lift back to our hotel as we don't drive. Highly recommend it for the guests in Clapham and Austwick. It is a very joyful walk in the countryside as well which takes about 40 minutes.
