Great place, great food, great service. Varied choice of dishes to accompany the main course, plus most dishes available as gluten free, which is a must for us coeliacs. And a creme brulee to die for. Highly recommended.

Thanks for the review Mark, Making all of our food from raw ingredients make it far easier for us to accommodate dietary requirements and all the chefs enjoy the challenge. The creme brulee is a firm favourite with all our customers.

Cheers Trystan. We always aim to please. Open kitchen is fantastic almost all the time, although the occasional outbursts of singing along too the kitchen soundtrack can be an issue. Hope to see you again soon, Darren

More a dining experience than a restaurant. A beautiful menu of modern British cuisine with a European influence. Bustopher Jones also offers an extensive wine list to compliment the food with a unique selection of cocktails.
