Well worth the price if you want a special meal
We decided to try out the grouse tasting menu. It was delicious!
An excellent selection of food, all cooked to perfection and delicious, served by an excellent waiting team.
Fabulous new decor, wonderful staff and as always... awesome food. Look forward to going back soon.
Fabulous menu with food cooked to perfection. The service was spot on.
Booked table for 4 six weeks beforehand. Was disappointed to be placed at end of restaurant beside large party of 12 for birthday celebration Was incredibly noisy and made conservation very difficult. Our booking was 12.15 when we were encouraged to immediately go to table rather than drink first in bar. Initial service slow, had to request drinks. The at end of lunch requested to vacate table for further booking. Were not told of limited table time when booking (on line). Have dined here many times before, this time all rather rushed, very noisy and less enjoyable.
Excellent food, service, ambience with some nice personal touches, for example birthday cake greeting. Very pleased. Did not need to eat for the rest of the day :)
Have been coming here for the last few years when Chapter One advertise their grouse tasting menu as it is always very good. This year I particularly liked the risotto although the other dishes were just as good.
Will be back soon.
Since its update the food and service is excellent.
However the noise levels now are very intrusive!
Chapter one is great for an occasion. The food and service are great. We had a tasting menu and a flight of wines, it was very good. Although they are not very generous with the wine. It is expensive, but it was nice.
Food and service always good as usual. The waiters very friendly and welcoming.
Booked to take my brother. I also had my son and with me and was worried about disturbing other diners. They put us in an area which was out of the way and allowed us to thoroughly enjoy the meal. Food was outstanding! 😀
It's our second time going to Chapter One, this time for our wedding anniversary. The staff are always very attentive. The food is lovely, my only slight complaint being that my main meal lacked in some flavour but overall a lovely evening and we would definitely return.
We have enjoyed eating at Chapter One many times over the years but this was the best. We had the grouse tasting menu. Each course was breathtakingly delicious. The gin jelly with tonic foam was one of the most memorable taste experiences we have had- a masterpiece. It was followed by an astonishingly beautiful lemon and white chocolate dessert. The accompanying wines were interesting and perfectly chosen. The waiting staff were efficient, friendly and knowledgeable. A memorable evening. Thank you Chapter One!
Found the choice of starters on the main menu quite boring so had a salmon fish main as a starter which was lovely and very well cooked. Roast Grouse as my main was sensational, well cooked and delicious. Staff were at their usual efficient, professional, knowledgeable and courteous best, as always!
We went for our daughter’s 14th Birthday. Everything was wonderful. The food was fantastic and the staff get a ten out of ten for attentiveness and great service. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
Excellent, as usual.
Top class food.
Always a high standard
This was a very good dining experience. We both had the lunchtime a la carte menu and found a wide variety of choices. We had different things so 6 dishes in all and they were faultless the venison was particularly good but everything was delightfully cooked and served. It was my wife’s birthday and she was given a cake and a candle and a small box to take it home. Very nice setting and spotless loos.
An excellent meal and very helpful staff. We had hoped for one of their special offers for a weekday lunch in August! However everything was excellent.
Have been to chapter one on lots of occasions , the service has always been great, I’m in the hospitality industry and always look for the small details which they provide great value as well. Unfortunately the food side has been slipping quite badly and on the last four occasions I have noticed a decline in quality cooking and execution of the food , real shame as my first dinner there 7 years ago was exceptional, on my last occasion my side was over cooked which was tender stem broccoli and my Josper grilled fish first of all was not cleaned out properly inside as there was still the green part of the gut in the fish and the fish was over cooked, my partners dish which was pigeon was over cooked too, presentation was not executed well. I hope the quality of the cooking improves as it is Ana amazing restaurant when all things are great.
We were really impressed by the service. I let them know in advance that I was vegan and that one member of our group couldn’t eat onion, and they created special menus for us! The food was super and the wine list extensive with options for all budgets. And we started with a cocktail, which was delicious too. We never felt rushed and the tables are nicely spaced. Would definitely recommend.
Food was excellent, and the set menu is fantastic value for money. Servers were attentive, and professional, they just needed prompting when they were required. The room was well staffed, but the venue was pretty empty and as a result it felt a bit stiff, but overall we had a lovely evening, with some excellent food.
This was a meal for us to celebrate our 40th Wedding Anniversary and it was perfect. The service was excellent from all the staff and made the experience very enjoyable.
Had a lovely evening, the waiting staff were very attentive but not a nuisance. Food was excellent. Will return
It was my partners birthday the food was amazing the service was second to none - we are regulars at this restaurant but everytime we go it gets better and better HIGHLY recommended
Starters not as good as before; fish and eel terrine not good
It was a busy night and felt it was a little rushed, 3 courses out in 1hr 15mins. Food was outstanding as always but would do lunch again next time as evening was too busy for us and when we have a night off from the kids we want to savour the moment.
The first time visiting Chapter One was a real treat. The service was friendly, prompt and helpful throughout the evening. We were delighted with the meal which brought together a great mix of flavour, texture and presentation. We enjoyed sitting in the corner and looking out over the room which was full of other happy customers. Thank you to the staff and management for a lovely evening, and to our kind friends who gave this to me as a 50th birthday present.
Excellent food and wonderful service which made our wedding anniversary celebration so special. A cupcake on a plate with 'Happy Anniversary' written in chocolate sauce was a lovely finishing touch. Well done to you all.
the refurb at chapter one has made a real difference. the patio area and the brasserie offer somewhere less formal to eat. the menu is good and there are always a few unusual tweaks to the dishes. presentation is good and as the saying goes "you eat with your eyes" so when it looks interesting, you are always one step ahead.
I have always had great food here & the service is excellent!
Lovely restaurant, great food, good value, pleasant staff but shame they were so slow and lacking knowledge when asked questions.
As always, excellent food, ambiance and service. Loved the banter with our waiter, what a lovely way to spend an afternoon!
Excellent service and food was delicious
Rib eye was tender and well cooked
Overall we enjoyed the meal
We visited the restaurant Friday night and upon arrival we were warmly greeted and directed to the bar for pre dinner drinks. We had great service and atmosphere in there before going into the main dining area.
We were really looking forward to celebrating our anniversary at the restaurant as we had not been there since it’s been refurbished. We were shown to our table and given the wine and food menu. We were left there for quite a while before the waiter came back for our drinks order. He took both drinks and food order at the same time and again we waited a while for the wine to arrive. Our starters arrived before the wine. We ordered water and it was warm so I asked for ice and it didn’t arrive so I had to ask for it again.
The food was sublime and it was a nice touch at the end of the night that the waiters gave us a dessert to celebrate our anniversary. We were a little disappointed with the overall service and lack atmosphere in the restaurant. It appeared that the brassiere has more attention to detail and service than the restaurant itself which is a shame.
I did inform chapter one by email but have heard nothing.
I will give the brasserie a try next time but reluctant to go back to the main restaurant.
This was the perfect venue for two 'ladies who lunch'. The portion sizes were just right so that we could relax and chat and not feel over full. The waiter was attentive but gave us time to choose courses and not make us feel hurried in any way. He was friendly and approachable without being overbearing. We had a lovely window table too.
Great food great service.
When you order a steak you expect some garnish not a bare slab of meat on the plate. Seems they have lost there way or chefs have something better to do.
Fantastic experience at Chapter One as always. Recommended!!
