Visited here for the first time for a family birthday. Booked it given that it had plenty of recent good reviews. Booked a Friday night and it was busy with Christmas parties and looked full. Friendly welcome and first impressions was a pretty decent relatively small restaurant. Table surface looked a tad worn and would have benefited from a varnish... More

We arrived to a warm welcome and the first class service continued throughout the evening. The food was excellent from starters through to desserts. The food was pipping hot and of a high quality. One of the best restaurants we have... More

We eat here regularly and have always left happy and content. There is a good range of dishes to choose from which are always cooked to perfection and reasonably priced! The staff are always happy to help with any requirement and the overall ambience of the place is cosy and tranquil. A real treat for any day of the week!

Thank you for making us so welcome this week and also for your pre dining personal service which was excellent and very much helped me as a diner with a sight problem. Having the menu emailed to me in advance greatly enhanced my dining experience. I knew what I wanted and my friends did not need to help me manage... More

The food is excellent, the service charming and the prices very good. What more could anyone ask? They serve a very good Sunday lunch for which... More

A reunion dinner was held at Fulbrooks on 13th October 2016 attended by 29 people. From the very first contact I made with the owner, Simon, he could not have been more helpful and met our needs in every way possible, including last minute cancellations. The choice of menu was quite extensive and the price was very competitive. The quality... More
