The food is delicious, well cooked and well presented. We have visited at weekends and during the week and it is always... More

This was our first experience at Basils, and we were not disappointed. This is a 'no frills' restaurant and a little bit of a trip back in time when eating out. However, I think this only added to the overall experience and ambience! The staff were very polite, and attentive. There is a substantive menu, and a 'specials' menu which... More

Great meal, well cooked, plenty of it, great staff, lovely atmosphere. ... only minor niggle but didn't spoil it whatsoever was there was no brandy (or even brandy flavouring) in the brandy sauce with the Xmas pud. Worth a visit ' delish food and lovely staff 😯

Thank Ali G
