We had a special occasion on Saturday night and we booked for 22. We were downstairs and even though they had four tables at the front they gave us the whole area and did not sell the other tables. We thought this was amazing as...More

We had a very good dinner at Mint but somehow it didn’t hit the spot. Competent and well presented dishes were a bit bland. Service and ambiance were good but overall there was nothing that lifted it into the ‘excellent’ category that others had reported.

On reading previous reviews we went to Mint this week. Not that impressed. Would not recommend this place if you are hungry. Food was cold and not a lot of it. The 'potatoe dumpling' was uninspired and surprise, surprise roast potatoes arrived in seconds when...More

The staff were lovely, food well presented, the pork belly was a bit stringy, there was liquid which was helpful. The lamb liver was tasty but overpowered by all of the beetroot, the beef dish looked great but lacked flavour and moisture. A good sauce...More

This is an excellent restaurant, mid level price point, modest but excellently balanced menu, very good wine list, with excellent representation of local quality wines. Everything went like clockwork. There were elements of the perfunctory, but not such as it would diminish the experience in...More
