After reading some of the negative comments on here- both from ill educated, entitled customers AND form Sat Bains himself, I wasn't as excited as I could be about visiting a Michelin star restaurant. I expected a place full of narrow-minded childlike eaters and egotistical staff, which would be intolerable- even if the food was excellent. However I was very... More

Visited here in November 2016 for my husbands 40th with my husband, brother and sister in law. We had a great time with excellent food and wine pairings; We were really looked after by everyone at Sat Bains - Would love to return! Lisa Atherton.

Four of us dined in The Nucleus. Our chef was Ricky, and the sommelier was Laurent. The cooking was wonderful. The wine pairings first class. The explanations and the discussion were interesting. First class experience if you're a lover of experimental cooking.

First visit here last week and was not disappointed. The service was definitely 5 star as was the food. We had the 7 course tasting menu. When you first see the portions they appear small but the food is so delicious and well presented that each mouthful is perfect. My husband and I have good appetites but we were both... More

Sat Bains is one of our favourite restaurants and over the years we have now visited more than 10 times. The food and wine paring are exceptional. The accommodation is in the same league as any boutique 5 Star hotel. We love it. However I don't get why people sit on their mobile phones texting through the duration of a... More

Booked a taster meal in the nucleus kitchen where you get a chef cooking for you and explaining the whole experience. Today I was the only customer and had personal service from a delightful and interesting Canadian chef (sorry I forgot your name, testament to your cooking) The experience was undoubtably the best meal I have eaten including another two...

This was a birthday treat for my husband. My son and his partner also joined us. We had the 'taster menu', 10 courses I think! We were not disappointed! The wine flight was also perfect along with the food. Each course was a delight, with the most amazing flavours and presentation. The front of house 'team' are incredibly professional without...

My husband and I stayed over night and experienced the 10 course tasting menu with wine pairings last week. It was my birthday present and undoubtably the best present I've ever received. The entire experience was out of this world. Every member of the team is extremely knowledgeable and understandably proud of what they are a part of. I could... More
