    Great dining experience, food was of a high quality with the wine being great quality and value. The best features were the staff friendliness. The steaks were of a high quality and the cheese board was exceptional.

    My boyfriend and I visited 1539 yesterday afternoon for an anniversary lunch and we had a wonderful time. The space itself is beautiful and the view over the racecourse makes the experience feel special (despite it being a grey day). The service was attentive but not intrusive although we had a minor hiccup when we were brought the wrong bottle of wine but this was all cleared up very quickly. Our food was brought out promptly and was delicious! I had a goats cheese mousse starter which although very tasty could have had more going on, it was pretty much just the mousse on the plate with some beetroot shavings. My boyfriend said his waffle and bacon was lovely and perfectly cooked. Our mains we unanimously decided were both fantastic, the salmon with pea and cheddar risotto was very tasty and was the perfect portion for me. The roast pork loin was perfectly cooked and the gravy was full of flavour too, the only thing he had to add was that the accompanying vegetables could have been slightly more cooked, other than that, we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The only part of the meal I wouldn't rate as highly is the dessert we shared, the butterscotch cheesecake, it just didn't seem to match the standard of the rest of the meal.
    Ultimately, we had a wonderful time and for what I believe to be a reasonable price for the standard of food, service and settings. We would definitely come again.
