Charming staff greet you in an elegant bar area for some pre drinks. (It would be nice to see some a little more smartly dressed though). The lovely light rooms and sparkly chandeliers make this a perfect treat for a special meal or birthday. The food is very good but not amazing. Bishops uses good ingredients, well cooked however some... More

We visited here as my stepdaughter had never experienced fine dining. She was not disappointed. Service out of this world, food delicious. The wine choices were great, even by the glass. Such a small, intimate restaurant, where you are made to feel really special & for your evening to be perfect.

The food that we received was beautifully cooked, and faultless. Packed with flavour and presented well. Was overall very pleased with the night! The service was also very good, with our needs always being fulfilled. And the food arriving promptly after ordering. The price was very fair and great value for money. I only have one small criticism and that... More

Our first visit to Bishops was a delight. Small,cosy and with a good feel this restaurant pleased all our party. The fixed price dinner menu is £35 for three courses plus wine and Bishops is to be applauded for not charging a supplement for the cheese option. A goood wine list is maintained. On our visit the Crab and Ginger... More

I have been to Bishops a few times now and its consistently one of the best restaurants my wife Corinne and I attend, even beating a lot of central London establishments. We also attend specialist wine evenings which are fabulous value with a resident wine expert coming in for an evening to explain the different wines to match the courses... More
