We had a really lovely time here dining on the curb at Clipstone, the service and the food was amazing and the ambience was very relaxing. It felt like a laid-back but classy neighborhood restaurant, and we really enjoyed the dinner.

Excellent menu which was skilfully executed and beautifully presented. Staff were efficient and friendly. Short but well considered wine list - fairly priced. Looking forward to our next visit.

Although the food was exciting and impeccable, and the service was friendly and attentive, we won't come back to this restaurant. It was a shame to see that staff didn't wear face covering, neither inside or outside. And that doesn't make me feel comfortable or safe.

I think you can get larger portions of the food in your plates. I understand the philosophy of 'taps style' and bistro but in some cases you need to be more generous with the food.

The food was beautiful, simple looking dishes (that were probably anything but!) with loads of flavour and textures. We sat outside on a sunny day and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Can't wait to go back.

Wonderfully normal dining experience. Plenty of sanitiser available around the restaurant if you wanted it. Staff were great, attentive and helpful. Food interesting, tasty and courses well paced - duck ravioli and squid were highlights. Will definitely recommend and will be back!

It's definitely better to have the set lunch as it is exactly the same menu as the evening meal but much cheaper. Everything was delicious and beautifully presented. It would be nice to have a few slightly cheaper chardonnay wines on the list but the house chardonnay is very good value and perfectly drinkable. My only complaint is that I hate music in restaurants. Music is fine in bars but not restaurants where it makes conversation less easy. But that's probably because I am an old fuddy duddy.

The return to Clipstone, post lockdown, has been lovely. Great to be able to dine there again and none of the magic is missing. Great food, cool atmosphere (quieter because of the distancing, but I like that) - just perfect.

After nearly four months of home cooking (which was, incidentally, excellent), my wife and I greatly enjoyed eating a dinner she hadn't cooked. And the variety of carefully blended tastes on the Clipstone menu made the evening a great gastronomic experience.
