We loved our visit to Roger Hickman's - the food was superb and the service efficient but not overbearing - a nice relaxed and informal atmosphere - perfect for a dinner with old friends.
We booked a meal at Roger Hickman’s to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We were hoping for something a little bit special, and we weren’t disappointed.
The service was excellent. The waiting staff were unobtrusive, but there when needed, cheerful and friendly.
The meal was marvellous. So much flavour was packed into every mouthful. I had halibut for a starter, followed by sea bass, while my husband’s starter was crab, followed by lamb. Neither of us could find any fault whatsoever with our dishes, which were just perfect. We finished off with coffee and petit fours and left with big smiles on our faces. The food was delicious and we will definitely recommend to family and friends.
Excellent food and wine and excellent service, in a very pleasant ambience.
The food on the lunchtime tasting menu was absolutely delicious. Prepared and presented with exquisite attention to detail and flavour. Our four year old daughter was accommodated with very welcome flexibility and generosity - she’s a good child and accustomed to good restaurants, but nonetheless they went out of their way to look after her, and it was very much appreciated.
The wine flight was perfectly matched to the food at each course. Our only regret was that eating with a young child, we had to work through the courses quickly, meaning we were slightly rushing to finish each wine! Our fault, not the restaurants.
Service was very attentive without being too much. Each plate was clearly described and each glass too. Staff were helpful, professional and friendly. The one objection I have is the automatic application of a 12.5% service charge. I prefer to choose the amount of my tip, and whether or not to tip - there’s no question in this case; I would happily have tipped, of course!
It is a delight to have such a first rate restaurant so close to home. We will be back.
This is a wonderful restaurant. We loved the ambience and the service was excellent. We couldn't fault the food beautifully presented and perfectly cooked. This was our second visit and won't be our last. Many thanks
The food was delicious, the service was great, the were really friendly. Overall a fantastic experience which we will be repeating!!
Trust the chef! This is the kind of place you could go to and order blind, and still love every bite. Definitely on the pricey side but you get what you pay for, and what a treat!
Excellent service and food. Anytime I have eaten here the standards are always high. Reputation well deserved
Dry pleasant service and first class cooking
