Loved everything about this restaurant. The menu is short and sweet. The service was really friendly and helpful, and the food was perfectly prepared. Went here on a Friday night and it was an absolutely brilliant evening. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone. You will need to book a month or so in advance.

Friendly relaxed staff who know their stuff and their system, food prepped in small kitchen bar area in the room. Wooden tables, good simple bread and wine. Fast turnover of tables. Booking pretty...

We went with the children for dinner. It took some finding as Upton Slip is a small cobbled alley that runs down from the main shopping area. We parked 10 mins away and walked. When we got to the restaurant it wasn't easy to find in the rain however we found the right door and fell into a room that... More
