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....

My husband took me here for a birthday meal on Saturday. A very cosy interior, the chap on the table next to us had to pull his chair right in and my husband had to move our table so I could get in! That apart the service was very good, with plenty of time between courses which I prefer as... More

We were able to get a table fairly last minute and so glad we did as the evening was a delight. My starter of scallops was brilliant and the main was hale. Both were delicious and so was dessert. Service was good throughout- including a discussion on the different gins available.

Five of us booked & enjoyed a lovely lunch. Great service, delicious food, lovely room. Four of us have visited a few times before & the newby had a great time. This may have started a Christmas tradition. Thank you very much.

We had a great evening here as our big group were the only guests on this evening. The food was nicely presented, although somehow it fell short on the taste. Friendly service.

Hadn't been to 22 for a while and was quite excited by the look of the menu. Unfortunately the execution was very average and amateurish; the wine list is unimaginative; the service equally average. No need to rush back any time soon. Pity!

Had high hopes of this restaurant but I feel it was let down by the service and the quality of some of the dishes. Lets start with the good things: Starters: Very nice - I had the celeriac veloute and my partner had the salmon, but very enjoyable. Desserts: Tatin and Sticky Toffee pudding, both excellent and well presented. Bread:... More
