Great evening celebrating my husbands Birthday.
The service was quick and the charming waiter helped to make the evening .

The food was cooked to perfection, delicious fillet steak with excellent sides.
They actually provided a Birthday treat alongside the dessert, of homemade raspberry
cheesecake, delicious.
Fully recommend a visit, midweek is quieter and parking easier.

The waitress got our food order wrong...twice! My main course (Sri lankan curry) was tasteless and marketed as medium when in fact it was super mild. Veg was over cooked, samosas were dry and over cooked.

All in all, food was poor. We won’t be coming back again.

This was our third visit but first on a Sunday. Good welcome and quick drinks service. Food was a bit slow to arrive and some of it was only warm, not hot. However, we both chose roast beef and the meat was delicious and cooked to our choice. The portions weren't huge but were adequate for our needs. We will go back

For the area, Tablespoon is quite competitively priced. Most of the food was good - the curries were very much enjoyed and my Sunday roast was excellent - well cooked vegetables, very good quality beef and huge portion. The only disappointment was salt and pepper squid which was tasteless and rubbery.
Wines were decent quality.
Service was quite odd - our waitress didn't really seem to be trained - forgot to mention the specials until we were ordering, got the order partially wrong when she brought a soup by mistake, spoke so quietly she was difficult to hear and seemed inattentive and a bit slow - we couldn't always understand her and I'm not sure she always understood us.
Overall a good Sunday lunch though - apart from the squid, all of us were happy with our meals.

Sunday lunchtime was busy with families, but with a pleasant atmosphere. The Sunday menu was not the menu shown on line, so three of our party chose a traditional roast meal. It was exceptional! Delicious and better than Simpsons in the Strand or the Goring Hotel, both of which are famed for Sunday lunch. The cooking was first rate and the helpings were generous. Staff were friendly & attentive. Great value and we shall return midweek to try the more varied menu.

My partner and I took his parents here for a small belated birthday meal for his Dad and we had a wonderful time; the food was delicious and the service was superb. We had our table booked for a relatively early time in the evening which meant that the restaurant was empty when we arrived, but it definitely became more busy as the night went on. Admittedly I wasn't really sure what to expect from the place but we were immediately made to feel welcome and the waiters were brilliant as they were happy to go along with the very friendly nature of my partner's Dad.

The food was fantastic; simple yet perfectly cooked. Two of us had the salmon en croute and two others had the lamb. For dessert, 3 out of the 4 of us had the cheesecake which was lovely, but it's probably worth mentioning that my partner's Mum had the Christmas Pudding which she said was the best she's had in many years.

Unfortunately my partner and I don't live in the area but we'll endeavour to visit again if we get the opportunity, however I know that his parents will visit again soon now that they know it's there. Although do note that there is limited parking immediately near the restaurant (luckily we were fortunate enough to find a street parking space directly opposite).

Excellent service coupled with excellent food. Each time we have been to this restaurant we have had a genuinely great experience. Add to this the excellent musician who plays every couple of weeks on a Wednesday evening and this place can really become a frequent favourite.

Always a pleasure visiting The Tablespoon. This time I brought I friend of mine. She absolutely loved it and said she wants to take her family there just for the amazing steaks! We both agreed the steaks at The Tablespoon are much better than the ones you find at SteakHouses. The elderly gentleman serving our drinks was very kind and hilarious as always!

We visit The Tablespoon regularly. We had Sunday lunch there, and the beef was incredible. Everything was cooked so well. The gravy was like no other gravy I’ve ever tasted! The service was outstanding as it usually is. I recommend this restaurant to everyone I know. I’m visiting again in a few weeks so I am very excited!

The food and service were excellent, but a calvados to finish the meal cost £12. It was poured without measuring it and was certainly a large one but I wasn't expecting it to cost that much. I felt I should have been asked it I wanted a single, double, triple or quadruple and advised of the cost per shot.

Otherwise the evening was excellent.

I called up the day before about one of our guest being vegan and the restaurant was so accommodating. The chef had a starter, 2 mains and a pudding to offer him. We were a large party of 10 catching up after a long time and we sat in the teaspoon pantry so we were separate from other guests- this was a really lovely touch. The staff were very friendly and everyone enjoyed their food!

Having been here before and had a lovely Sunday lunch ,we had high expectations .

The service was outstanding and as previously , the restaurant was warm and welcoming .

The food was average in flavour but beautifully presented .There were many items unavailable on the desert menu and the coffee was ok .

Not as good a standard as last time so felt a little disappointed.

It’s only taken 6 years to find this place! Food was excellent, perfect lamb and steak. A nice variety to choose from and some surprises. It was nice to find reasonably priced drinks including the water! Service was spot on and the overall ambience just right. I will certainly be returning and soon!! Thank you.

We recently attended for my Birthday. The service was outstanding as per usual. The food - EXCEPTIONAL. I ordered my favourite fillet steak.
Yet again, cooked to perfection.
I was surprised that the owner, and staff, new about my Birthday. They made my dessert very special and they all sang Happy Birthday to me.
I am over the moon with how special they made me feel.
The environment and atmosphere in the restaurant is like no other. Everyone is happy, and very welcoming. The elderly man who served us our drink, was making us laugh so many times throughout the evening. We will continue to visit this restaurant. It’s our favourite local restaurant. Even if it wasn’t local, we would still drive a long way just to enjoy the good food and company of the staff.

Went there for a date. The service was impeccable. The staff were so friendly and knowledgeable.
There was some live music which just added to the ambience. The food was delightful, in particular the items from the fusion menu.

We needed to accommodate 14 family members for a special get together. We were allocated a private room which was perfect for the occasion. The staff were so attentive, kind and understanding as well as patient! The food was delicious, arrived together for the whole party. We can't thank the team enough and will definitely be back - in smaller numbers next time!
