My husband and I have a wedding Meal here and it was incredible. We had fillet steak for our main and it was cooked to perfection and to ensure all steaks were cooked as ordered shows true skill. The starter and pudding were incredible too. The staff were attentive, friendly and just excellent.

Unique experience - lovely family business. Palmichael produces some very delicious dishes and we recommend you try them for yourself.

First time I have visited but have heard lots of good reviews. Had a girlie get together with 2 other friends. I must say the food was divine. I had the tortellini with asparagus and white chocolate and raspberry panacotta. Heavenly!! Price was reasonable and they do offer 2 courses for £14. I will definitely return as it is on... More

A birthday celebration with 20 of us. Food pre-ordered and everyone received what they ordered without hiccups. Service was attentive and friendly. Food was tip top. Well worth a visit

The food was bland and boring with little effort of presentation. The food was edible but not exciting in any way. Service was good. Friendly staff.

Visited with hubby for an early valentines meal last week and we loved it. We had the three course lunch menu and a delicious bottle of wine. Service incredibly polite and friendly and the food was amazing. Definitely on our list to go back to.

Every time we eat at the Palmichael the food is consistently very good and we always receive an excellent service. The starter Mozzarella Corrozza, yummy. We would recommend the Filetto al Pepe, the steak is so tender, the pepper sauce delicious. The restaurant is comfortable and pristine. It's not cheap, two courses and one drink each is about £70 but... More

Our usual excellent indian was knocked off top spot by this restaurant so we decided to return after many years to see why. The interior had changed for the better since last time and as a result you will find a clean homely environment. Good start. We were bought 2 small slices of bread and asked if we would like...

Almost arrived late due to nearby road works compounded by rain, but the nearby parking and warm greeting more made up for a poor start to our evening. Our starters were delicious with excellent presentation, and the choice of mains and drinks represented both northern and southern Italy. Thoroughly enjoyed our meal, at a price that will have us returning... More

We visited a few weeks ago (Friday 13th January) after being recommended to head there by our hotel. Unfortunately we arrived after they had stopped serving food and were gutted! The very lovely Italian lady at the bar told us to wait, popped into the kitchen and came back to say that they could squeeze us in- and my goodness... More
