We had a birthday dinner here just after the refurb. Very enjoyable. I loved the upstairs bar area and the whole place had a great atmosphere! It was nice to have a chat with Paul who made us feel very welcome! Will definitely be back!

Visited on a Friday evening as No. 6 had been on our list to try for ages. First impressions very good - a nice mixture of comfy/cosy with the modern open kitchen/dining area. We opted to take our seat in the dining room rather than have a pre-drink upstairs as we had already had a drink in another bar in... More

We ate here on Friday and had a great time. The welcome was professional and courteous and several staff congratulated us on our 30th Anniversary. Indeed a Anniversary Card signed from Paul and the team upon our arrival was a very nice and special touch. We had a drink before and after in the upstairs private bar area which was... More

Popped along to have lunch and see what the results are when you let the hospitality crowd loose with tools of destruction in a place where they've spent many a long hour rounding up those of us who should drink and chat less and eat faster. Seriously though if you liked No 6 before, all the best parts are still... More

We visited for dinner and the experience was superb. A great menu which we were assured is updated often. The food was divine and his signature pudding is worth travelling for and don't forget to take lots of pictures before you devour it :-)

Second time eating here as we are from London. Both occasions have been so good and what a treat that Paul actually is very accommodating to speak with customers, I just wish all chefs would take this extra time out to do this. Service was good and the food amazing, if you do want a special meal then do not... More

We loved our meal at No. 6! It's rare to find such good food and service without the stuffy pretention that goes with it! We felt relaxed, able to enjoy each dish with little quirky touches that really made the experience even more memorable. Would definitely return.

visit this one. there's one other, but you can't book it ahead so not great if organising a break. Impeccable service, and stupendous food in a charming converted house which means small rooms (probably hell for staff) and a private feeling for any celebration. I'm one of those people who (a) only eat for celebrations and (b) resent paying for... More

The new refurbishment at No.6 is very funky. The food never fails to delight with the hours of preparation that must have gone into the dishes. A limited menu but each dish is served with meticulous precision and by very knowledgeable staff.
