smoked avocado, artichoke, horseradish
cep pure on toast, pickled girolles, onion marmalade, ewe's milk ricotta
An excellent meal, polished from start to finish and the staff were really friendly and helpful recommending wines and being a strong mix of attentive not annoying!
Would recommend and definitely go back. Obviously it's not cheap but having been a chef and worked in a 3 star myself the price was worth it for the work that went in and the quality of the food.
Even the smoked butter (made in house) was top notch!
I had high hopes for social eating house when I booked. Other reviews were very favourable. Perhaps we were just unlucky.
My crab starter tasted not at all of crab but just overwhelmingly of oniony herbs. The accompanying almond gazpacho was tasteless. My main of halibut was ok but the confit duck leg was nowhere to be seen amongst the mass of onions. My husbands steak was good. Food service was exceptionally quick, too quick actually. The wine we ordered to go with our food never turned up and so had to be cancelled. We had to ask for the bill 3 times but when it came the service charge and the cost of our opening glasses of champagne had been removed since I had spoken to the deputy manager about our meal. That was appreciated but overall the experience under whelmed considerably.
Great bar service. Wonderful food. Will go back
Was looking forward to having my dinner here to celebrate my birthday but I’m really disappointed with the experience in general. The quality of food is good but nothing great to shout about. Food was too salty, did not have balance and the portions were way too big (it was so salty that there was just too much of it). The theatre menu is very confusing so you should definitely clarify before ordering. We ended up paying much more than we expected due to miscommunication with the staff.
