Booked table for 8 pm, arrived 7.45 pm, were taken to the table 8.45 pm. Ordered 10 minutes later. Starter 9.15 pm, main 9.45 pm. Is this acceptable for time to wait for food?

Also - Why do they do fixed priced menu if anything worth having has a supplement on the top of it? Went hungry and left hungry because of small portions.

Very disappointed. Fancy techniques and foams did no do it for us at all. Maybe I am not posh enough (or pretending to be one). Will not visit again. A lot more restaurants in the area that have nicer and definitely cheaper food.

We were going to eat at another place in Dean Clough but did not like the menu so thought we would try the Design House.

We were agreeably surprised and had the best meal we have had for quite a while. Will definitely go back.

We went to The Design House last night for the first time. It has a contemporary look and feel but a warm and friendly welcome. The menu is clear and offers a mix of traditional and more modern approaches. All the food came in good time, was served pleasantly and was piping hot. All in all a good performance from both front of house and kitchen.

Went with my daughter and we had a wonderful time. Drove a hour to get there and sat nav had trouble finding place. Motorway closed on way back so took 2 hrs to get home. Still this didn't dampen the experience. Can't wait to go again
