Wow, exceptional food and one of the best “meals”we have had. Our first time here. Expertly trained knowledgeable staff added to the value.

The only negative and minor at that in the scale of the evening, Was that we felt a bit uncomfortable, having arrived slightly early for a 530 meal (@520pm) we were told that the restaurant wasn’t open yet but we could have drinks at their downstairs bar. Not a problem, but the downstairs staff weren’t ready for us either, although there were other guests there, and we also had to confirm to them that we had a booking. The downstairs bar reminded me of bars in my student days, very dark and slightly smelly. We had to put the phone torch light on to see to read the bar drinks menu.... so just a bit odd for us.

However, we were soon brought back upstairs into the light to enjoy a well run dining experience. Where we did not feel rushed and the staff were on hand to explain and help us. Everything tasted fantastic and was presented beautifully. We dined with our teenage daughters who loved it. We will return. Thank you for a really lovely evening.

This is one of the best dining experiences I have had. The food was amazing and the staff were friendly knowledgeable and there when they were needed without being overbearing. We had the tasting menu and the food was sublime and the flavours and textures were excellent. I will be going back

The experience was absolutely as we expected. Beautiful food, complex and technical, delicious and beautifully presented. The staff were all attentive and professional. A joy to watch the kitchen team work so well together in a clam and professional manner with lots of interaction with diners. Joyful evening out. Wine prices are the higher end of the spectrum comparatively. Highly recommended.

This restaurant should have a Mitchelin star, tasting menu
Was stunning, we consider ourselves foodies and this rates as one of the best meals we have ever had. Only criticism we have is that the white wine was not cool enough for our liking.

Absolutely perfect time at Frog.
The staff were very friendly and welcoming and knowledgable and eager to please. Chefs were waiting on as well as cooking the dish and bringing you the food that they’ve just made themselves in front of you, a fantastic touch.
The wine waiter was also fantastic pouring a little drop of wine for each course.
Perfect 👌
And the food and menu out of this world, a clean plate every course!

Had the 8 course tasting menu and paired wines. Have been lucky enough to eat in several Michelin starred restaurants and the food was some of the best we’ve had. The sommelier was excellent and very knowledgable. Very impressed that Adam Handling was in the kitchen actively preparing food. Overall, fabulous!

Bravo Adam Handling! Wow - what a fantastic evening! I am a big fan of tasting menus and I think has to be my favourite ever so far. The flavours in each dish were mind-blowing, I think my favourite was the Mushroom agnolotti & black garlic because I've never had anything quite like it, but all the dishes were superb. The experience from start to finish was extremely memorable and I look forward to coming back again soon! Thanks to the wonderful staff and chefs for a wonderful evening, especially Melissa our waitress and our sommelier Nadia.

We had a truly superb early evening dinner - having the tasting menu each element of which was memorable. The staff were amazing with a rarely seen level of knowledge and enthusiasm across the board. It is a relatively minimalist setting however that doesn't matter as the food and staff do all the talking superbly. It is unpretentious and also incredible value for the quality.

Turned up for the last service on a Sunday expecting the staff to want us in and out as quickly as possible... nothing could have been further from the truth as each and every member of staff, from front of house to chefs delivering food to the table (and everyone in between) were brilliant!

The food was itself very good - the 5 course taster - and was matched perfectly with a great wine selection.

Couldn’t recommend more highly, and my only real question is why they don’t have a Michelin start already?!

The experience as a whole was nothing short of perfect. Each dish was blew me away, my person favourites being the razor clam snack and mother. The staff and chefs were a joy to meet, after chatting with them you could understand the passion they all shared for food. I will definitely be returning to this restaurant and can not wait to see how the menu changes with coming seasons.

As fabulous as ever.
Loved sitting at the bar/counter and watching the professionals at work. Such a well co-ordinated process, working at full capacity & everyone from pot wash guy to head chef seems to know exactly what, where when. No hiccups or glitches, just a streamlined process. I don’t quite know how they do it, and so very well.
Food is amazing - tried things we wouldn’t normally go for (no safe favourites here), and didn’t regret it for a second.
Chicken butter alone is heaven on earth!

We really enjoyed our first Frog experience and have booked again already!

The food and service were perfect. The staff were attentive but not pushy and the food was exquisite and just the right number of courses to the tasting menu.

Highlight was the additional lobster course!

Lunchtime taster menu was beautiful and delicious - light and flavoursome. Attentive and warm service to add. They let us stay till we’ll after closing at lunch and made sure we were well catered for. Would go again and recommend the experience wholeheartedly other than the house cocktails - the classics are much better.
