In the past I've been somewhat disappointed with the small portions of albeit lovely food at served up at No 9 - but last night things had changed!

Last night so-called nouvelle cuisine took a step back as wonderful food was served in more satisfying quantities. I somehow think this is just what most diners wish for.

Apart from this I can't add anything to what's already been said.

Thank Somme-Jim

Food here is outstanding. I am told that the head chef has worked in some impressive places and you can really tell! All of our courses were well presented and delicious. The only suggestion I would make is to up the portion sizes a little because some of our less " foody" friends only care about how much they get - next time I will treat them to an " all you can eat!"
Totally fantastic place to eat, and certainly a place we shall keep coming back too!

Interesting dishes all beautifully presented. Some may feel the portions are on the light side but they were perfectly adequate for us.

A big thank you for Jamie,Lucy and the rest of the team.We booked for our anniversary and had a lovely evening.We have been several times now , as both a couple or large party and Number 9 is able to cater for everyone's request's.
Recommend that you book as it is normally full especially Saturdays, we like the fact they sensibly stagger bookings so no one has to wait too long for service.
The menu is fresh and local where possible. We had duck terrine and smoked salmon starters excellent! Followed with crab and sea bass, we then had to make room for desserts, white chocolate mousse and Eton mess .
What more can we say apart from cheers and see you all again soon
