Overpriced & hate that you have to get two meals when some of the items are enough to share?

The presentation of the pancakes was extremely poor. No effort was made to make the plate look in the least appealing. The taste was also very average.

Very disappointed. Small expensive portions. Side of truffle fries £7.50. Sent back stale fries and 2x hashed browns for sloppy presentation, lukewarm/reheated and stale taste. With alcohol (4 glasses of fizz, 2 glasses of wine, 1 bloody Mary) coffee, no dessert it was nearly £50 a head for 4 people. Daylight robbery. Service was great. Won't visit again or recommend I'm afraid.

Have been going to Christophers for years. Has always been excellent, but a little disappointed on this occasion. Reduced menu compared to pre-Covid, but food still very good. Service however was not good - slow (possibly down to reduced staff due to Covid?), they seemed ill-informed about menu or wines and not were not at all attentive. Maybe we were unlucky on this occasion and the meal was saved by the food, but at these prices service should be much better.

Fast service, friendly staff, delicious food. Maryland eggs were a tad too salty for me but still yummy. French toast brioche is something everyone should try.

This was my first visit and I had an early booking. Was just slightly irritated that my order was wrong and only corrected when I challenged it. It wasn't busy so no excuse .

They gave us a tiny table and the service was terrible. Staff not accomodating at all as we asked for a different table and they refused and the food didnt even fit onto the table. I booked in advance and deserved a decent table. other couples were only ordering french toast so the small tables would be better for them but we ordered a full 3 course meal on a tiny circle table at the bar. Very rude staff.

We were there for my daughters birthday. The service was good, waiter attentive, place was clean. Food delicious. They had a candle on one of the dishes she ordered. It's still an expensive restaurant but it was really good food as well

The sanitation of the toilets was extremely poor, we had to inform management of the state of the toilets.
In addition to this the service was very slow and we had to send one portion of food back due to it arriving cold. Understandably in one of the dishes crab may contain partial elements of shell though this was not disclosed on menu and was horrible to bite into as it spoiled the Whole meal. I wouldn’t personally attend again.
