We were extremely lucky to get in on a Friday night due to a cancellation. We went with high expectaations and were not disappointed.
The first sight of The Royal Mail, especially at night with their lights twinkling, is a modern retro pleasure. It is built to reflect the curves of the art deco period and perfectly blends with the older part original part of the building. Inside the building, the use of angles,layers and different materials helps absorb the sound and lease the eye.
The wait staff were extremely well informaed and very knowledgeable, they could answer every question we asked about the food, the cooking processes, and wine. They were attentive without being intrusive. Our sparkling water was always topped up.
There is a choice of vegetarian or omnivore degustation menus. We both opted for the omnivore menus and the staff took the time to ensure that there was no shellfish for my partner. I opted for the matched wine option which provided an opportunity to enjoy wine from all over the world which was perfectly matched to the food. My partner is so wonderful that he offered to be the driver, so no matched wine for him, instead so he chose a cider and a French Pinot for later in the meal.
The food was inventive, perfectly seasoned, and wonderfully well balanced flavours (I can provide full menu details if anyone would like the details) which we both thoroughly enjoyed.
We would recommend The Royal Mail to anyone who enjoys great food, wine and service.
