Went for a romantic meal for two at Sheesh - the food was out of this world and service was fantastic. Greeted at the door by two people, coats taken and offered a drink in the bar first before we took to our table. After our meal we went upstairs to the bar where they had live music and open...

I've been a regular since it opened but prices have just got a bit too silly. Today five of us went for lunch, two courses and no booze. Bill was £260 with service automatically added. Pleasant waiting staff and good food, however, it seems they've become rather a victim of their own success now. Casting a cursory glance over the... More

Having been here several times before as a couple we pre booked our daughters 18th for 8 people and at £440 (starters and main no dessert or coffee) this was the most expensive and worst meal ever for a birthday. We weren't allowed to take a cake in and weren't allowed to take 3 helium balloons in. After the meal... More

I visited Sheesh to celebrate a birthday. Its first impressions are impressive with its gated entrance, and valet parking. As you walk through the entrance gardens, you can see that its all about presentation and image. As we had not booked, and it was a lunch time, the front of house greeted us and asked us if we would care... More

Always enjoy a meal at Sheesh! Whenever I visit my sister it is always a must that we go back there. The lamb kebab is amazing and the dream cakes are to die for! There's always great live music in the bar upstairs which is nice for a few cocktails. Looking forward to returning!

I came with two friends who were visiting from Ireland for a meal. I have been a few times before and I have to say it never disappoints! Food was amazing & the staff friendly and helpful. Definitely worthwhile finishing off the night with a cocktail upstairs - they're amazing! Still one of my favourite places to eat and can't... More

Great service with great surroundings. The inside and outside is lovely for pictures! Coming back to the food, it was one of the best Turkish food I've had. Very tender and full of flavour, the chips where my favourite! I've not had chips that taste soooo good before. Great customer service. I'd return back on an occasion as it is... More

Visited with my family, celebrating my son's 21st. Everything about the experience was enjoyable. You are made to feel welcome from the outset. The decor is very high spec. I can't rate this restaurant highly enough. I had a lamb kebab, This was quite expensive for a kebab but I can't remember ever having lamb as nice, tasty and tender.... More
