    We booked to have a family birthday meal at the restaurant, and we were not disappointed. Having previously dined there on a number of occasions, I knew that the food would be excellent. The friendliness of the staff, the service and the food were all top class. This restaurant deserves a Michelin Star.

    A lovely meal, as always. We even had a vegan in our group, and the chef came out to speak to her about what she liked to eat and created a dish specially for her!

    I have been booking parties at Needhams for my business, family birthdays and just for a special treat out as a couple. You would have to go a long way to receive food and service like Verity Luke and their team provide. It can only be described as "First Class" they have always been willing to accomodate my needs with my guests that have required special diets. This couple go out of their way to make you feel special
