“What a cracking night”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

It was my wife's birthday and we were looking for a nice restaurant to celebrate.After a quick search online we came across "the scullery" in Silksworth with some good reviews. Although we didn,t know of anyone who had been or sampled, we thought we would take a chance and try it, and what a good decision it turned out to be.There was 6 of us and everyone bar none enjoyed every morsel. There was a good variation of food between us, such as scallops in vodka sauce,chicken n prawns in a tomato seafood bisque sauce, racks of lamb, mixed fish & seafood grill, pizza,s etc etc and all were cooked to perfection and very tasty.The staff were absolutely spot on & really friendly, they had even put little birthday sprinkles on the table with a birthday card for my wife, which we felt was a very nice touch.This was our first time here but will certainly not be our last.

“Good Breakfast”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

Taken here by friends, lovely light fresh feeling place for bank holiday breakfast.
Friendly service and nice table settings, love the quirky menus.
Food was good - 2 breakfasts & 2 scrambled eggs / bacon. Didn't take too long.
Only critique would be the scrambled eggs should be fluffy, they were more like a fried omelette cut up, only on 1 slice of toast cut in half... perhaps it was limited food stock & only 1 chef on the bank hol.
Overall would really recommend for local folks :)

“Happy hour, happy toddler, happy parents!”
Reviewed 3 May 2014 via mobile

We visited the scullery on a Saturday evening during happy hour, with our 18 month old daughter. She was not in the best of moods to say the least. After our attempts to pacify her with toys, colouring etc but to no avail, the staff were very attentive to her needs, bringing her bread while we waited for food (which wasn't long at all). Not interested with the bread or chips on offer, the staff then gave her an ice cream lolly which held her attention long enough for us to enjoy our meals and a much needed glass of wine! Thank you, nothing was a problem for them! They had baby wipes, toys, children's cutlery and bibs to hand. Highly recommend this as a family orientated place to dine, as there aren't many around that serve such good, fresh grub.
