    The food was absolutely sublime and the atmosphere was perfect to celebrate a milestone birthday in the private dining area up stairs. Nicole was an amazing host and would highly recommend Flint to all.

    I love restaurants that only offer a few dishes, but do them really well. For one, I hate being overwhelmed (intimidated) by complicated and confusing menus. Second, like most things in life, less is usually more. Flint's focus on wood fire and fermentation also reminds me of the slow food movement - another key aspect of this restaurant's philosophy. Add to the mix the personal service by the staff (we got to try some "work in progress", namely some fermenting okra to be used in future dishes), and an interesting wine list, and you have a perfect combination. Highly recommended!

    We had the room overlooking the main restaurant as were a group of 7 plus an infant. This was great. Staff, food, ambience was all excellent. We loved all the dishes of a set menu. My husband and I had been previously and sat at the bar overlooking the cooking area and this was also fantastic and interesting. Would highly recommend if you want to eat amazing food without fuss.

    Wow what an experience! Came here with my husband (it was his birthday) and my 11 year old for the 5pm sitting. The whole concept is perfect - a real innovative way to offer the food, a laid back easy atmosphere and a warmth from the owner (and the gorgeous Lennie the retriever upstairs) and the serving team. Food outstanding, dark moody lighting perfect for those chillier evenings and some real menu standouts. Thanks so much for making his birthday so special Team Flint!

    I thoroughly enjoyed my dining experience at Flint. Although I was initially disappointed to discover that most of the main meat options were sold out, I found solace in the delicious lamb dish, which truly exceeded my expectations. The highlight of the meal, however, were the carrots - an absolute must-try! The staff's recommendation for a bottle of wine to complement our meal was spot-on and added to the overall enjoyment of the evening.

    A cool vibe with innovative food. A little on the exy side, but a great experience overall.
