Restaurant 22 is such a lovely venue with friendly staff and incredible food. We enjoyed 3 amazing courses, which were split up by amuse bouche and sorbet. The food was such a high standard and very well presented. Highly recommend!

I have eaten at Restaurant 22 a few times and the food and service are always excellent. The layout of the dining area is a bit like having a meal in the sitting room of an old friend. The food is outstanding and the staff amiable and attentive without being overbearing. A great place to have a romantic meal.

I love this place. We come maybe once or twice a year and I love it so much. When we walked in Armando immediately greeted us and offered us the same table as last time (2016) I was so impressed he had remembered. He is so personable and always asks how we are and what is new! The menu was... More

A spontaneous decision to go and try it out. Better than your average pub grub but could be so much more. Room very cold with fleeces kept on throughout the meal. "Veloute" curious mixture and bread rather heavy. Onion soup poor, but sardines good. Guinea fowl a bit tasteless and why chowder was used to describe a particular course remains... More

Came here with a group of colleagues from work and had a lovely evening dinner. The food, wine and service were all superb. Will definitely return. Thank you.

I organised a meal for myself and nine colleagues just before Christmas. The three course meal (four including a delicious amuse-bouche!) came to £23 a head, complete with homemade Guinness, saffron and cranberry breads. The wine was delicious, and the service was above-average. I'm heading back in three day's time and can't wait! Would definitely recommend.

We wanted a small and intimate restaurant to have a bit of "us" time. The establishment fitted the bill perfectly. It is small and cosy, albeit the decor is a bit tired. Don't let that put you off though. The menu was just to our liking. A good mix. Pigeon for the Mrs to start, crab tart for me. We... More

Booked for a family meal. Seated in room upstairs which was not very attractively furnished but we were ok with the privacy. The service was pleasant, friendly and attentive and staff took our criticism of the food with good grace. The food was, unfortunately, pretty awful. First course - pumpkin filling of ravioli was stringy and flavourless, pasta was poorly... More

We were recommended this restaurant very highly by a friend and were really looking forward to trying it out. Arrived quite early ~6.30pm and the restaurant was empty except us and a waiter. I personally did not enjoy the atmosphere as it was so quiet that our conversation felt really loud, even after the restaurant filled up. The starters and... More

The main reason no-one in our group of 4 will come back to this restaurant in a hurry is the off-putting service. The main waiter had a very unpleasant, sneering demeanour which made us wish we were not in the same room. Since it is a very small restaurant, that is an atmosphere that is hard to get away from....
