Excellent food, very nice service from the staff who work well as a team. Mushroom mousse was light and full of flavour and the apple soufflé should not be missed. Good atmosphere aided by good acoustics meant that you could have a conversation without having to shout.

    We ate here three days after it had opened, and had a gastronomic experience that we wanted to tell the world about. Sadly, our meal last night was almost incomparable to our first experience. The fire was causing smoke in the restaurant and it was not helped that staff opened several windows and doors - this could not be helped, but we had to close them during our meal as our food was going cold. Drink orders were taking a considerable amount of time, and although a complimentary drink was offered by way of an apology it did not take place. In true British spirit we did not query this!

    We had some of the same dishes that were enjoyed the first time, and the quality was not present. I appreciate that we are now in a quiet season and everyone is entitled to a bad day; however, having paid £100 per head for our meal the experience was rather underwhelming!

    I went to the restaurant with my mother. We both thought the food was superb. Each course was simply delicious. The individual flavours all came together so well. I love the concept of this restaurant and the service was great, not stuffy which can put me off nice restaurant's. Only thing I would say is the restaurant could do with some soft background music . I have already booked a 2nd visit.

    Outstanding service and the food was unbelievable and reasonable prices for the standard. Only minor gripe was that the recommended wine to accompany our meal was £11 per glass which is too expensive

    Thoroughly enjoyed our visit and our meal.
    We will certainly visit again and recommend the Farmer Butcher Chef to friends and family.

    Delicious food, excellent service with a particular mention to the restaurant desk. We will definitely be going again. We went for my husband's birthday and he loved it - a particularly good menu for the meat-loving male, but the attention to detail and vegetables were all superb and appealed to us both.

    A lovely alternative to the Kennels. As expected, the food was amazing but my husband thought that £12 for a bloody mary was excessive.

    Absolutely fantastic food, great service and fabulous setting. So impressed with this restaurant can't wait to go back to try some more dishes!

    Room is bright but the lighting is not of the standard expected of a venue of your Calibre - and doesn't create a comfortable relaxed atmosphere. Room a bit bare and presumably take off of Chiltern Firehouse. Metal table tops don't work. Already has unsightly rings on. Glasses feel like cheap plastic tooth mugs.
    Staff pleasant and friendly. Despite having booked nearly a month in advance we were offered the worst table in the house by the entrance next to the till despite other better tables being available. Menu interesting but execution does not match the ambition. My wife had the duck egg starter which turned out to be like bacon and eggs - the cast iron dish in which it was served was red hot and the egg was cooked to a rubbery consistency and inedible. The bacon also totally dry. The jowl terrine was better but not that interesting.
    I had the Dover sole which was reasonably priced but smaller than any I have ever seen. I asked for boiled potatoes rather than the roasted and was assured this would not be a problem. However I was served the roared variety! My wife's beef was well cooked (rare) but too small for a main course. Looked more like a starter. The wine Cavalier was excellent value - we served this at my daughters wedding which we held at Goodwood House in October and was pleasing to see the price was consistent. The long table with fruit filled fire buckets is a poor use of valuable space. Why not give diners better tables to sit at and give them more space? Overall value for money was ok. We paid almost as much at pizza express last week.
