From start to finish the food, service and wine are outstanding. The head chef (Ian Swainson) is so passionate about his food that he will come and deliver certain plates to you. Each course is explained in detail by the chef who delivers it. The sommelier is the best I've come across in any restaurant. Fabulous recommendations and outstanding knowledge.... More

Me and my partner were celebrating our birthdays with friends and we enjoyed the 10 course meal with a wine flight and as wine and food enthusiasts we had a very nice time, although i feel the sommelier could have given more detail on the wine given for each meal, we then went to the bar afterwards and enjoyed some...

Trendy decor quite different to the hotel. We had the eight course menu and my non meat eating preferences were accommodated well. Chefs very proud of their wares and it was great to watch them at work through the windows to the kitchen and the cameras trained in them. Perfect place for a celebration. Reservations essential.

Husband faced the kitchen and watched the dishes being prepared and I faced the other diners and in wall televisions showing kitchen.

My family dined here on saturday. It was our third visit and the 10 course tasting menu was to the same high standard. Small, excuisitely prepared dishes served by the chefs themselves were all innovative with unusual ingredients, trompe d'oeil and flavour combinations galore. The (expensive) wine flight was fascinating and added to the whole experience. Our table (right near... More

I have been fortunate to eat tasting menus in a number of restaurants around the World. This was as creative as any I can remember and Ian and his team added to the theatre of the occasion and made it very special for my Sister, whose tasting experience it was her first!

It is a rare surprise to sit back in wonderment at every one of 8 courses thinking "How did they do that" The Pass is not cheap but for food as exceptional as this it is no wonder that the kitchen staff can outnumber the diners.
