    The moment I walked in I felt a good atmosphere and staff was very assertive and professional. I promptly booked another table for a next few days time as I really enjoyed the experience. The only disappointment was I was never asked about allergies and when it came to ordering dessert I had to notify the waiter that I was allergic to berries and strawberries was the most effective for me. I had ordered creme brûlée and I’m very convinced it previously had strawberry on it for decoration which I think was removed. I know this now is because when I returned a few days later , the two desserts that we ordered had berries and both had strawberries for decoration. That night I felt an irrational on my arm and the next day I had a rash appear. I can’t be sure if this came from the restaurant but it really needs to be highlighted that allergies have to be taken seriously. This unfortunately was my only criticism that again I wasn’t asked for any allergens . Overall all Sunday roast was exceptional good but on my return I had lunch time menu and the lamb kofte was salty and chicken skewers were dry. This is definitely a restaurant that I enjoyed but I’m in no hurry for a third visit.

    Another fantastic dining experience! Skew has captured the very essence of social dining. The venue is superbly decorated with staff that understand what is required to make occasion enjoyable. Consequently the atmosphere is vibrant and everything you could want for a special occasion.

    We were sat at a table that was in the middle of a walk way to the toilet meaning we had people walking past us all of the time. We felt that we were in the way and it wasn’t Covid safe.
