She have eaten at The Wilderbeast before it is consistently good. The food is imaginative and beautifully cooked. Ingredients top class and there is always a good choice and the vegetarian food is great. Service is friendly and efficient.

    Cannot recommend the Wildebeest enough. It starts with the staff who are fantastic and can’t do enough for you, and continues with the food which is fantastic. Outstanding, we will be back

    Great staff, ambience and food. As it happened we were ready to leave, but I hate being told I have to vacate the table at a certain time! Other than that, a great experience.

    A very pleasant atmosphere and setting.

    The menu wasn’t too busy and was well set out.

    We both enjoyed our meals tremendously, I had a set meal of Prawns, the Vegetarian Risotto and tart all excellent, my husband enjoyed the Bass with Crab and Risotto particularly.

    Slow service , nice enough food.On booking I was informed that we needed to vacate our table by 20.50 ....Why? The service was slow ,I informed the waiter that we were running out of time .I asked if we had time to order desert she said she would check , she returned and said that we were fine which was a relief but it shouldn't have happened . Service should have been efficient enough to allow time for at least three courses without having to ask.
