I visited the Grey Lady on a Thursday evening with my partner and had 3 courses and drinks. You most definitely get what you pay for! Prices are slightly higher than our normal restaurant choices but we were celebrating so didn't mind and the quality of the food was well worth the cost. We ate from the main menu, which... More

Spent £75 on 2 drinks, 2 mains and 2 desserts. The walnut sponge, ice-cream (had a strange name) dessert was the best I've ever tasted!

We had been given vouchers as a Christmas present. We decided to use them on the 5 course tasting menu. The venue is stunning, both inside and out. The staff were attentive without being overbearing. The food was lovely. Only one criticism? There could have been more sauce with the Chicken course,although I expect if we had asked for we... More

We went here for a birthday get together, with my family with a 4 and under 1 year old. The staff were friendly, food was lovely and we were not rushed. They even provided a cheaper smaller portion set lunch meal for my 4 year old who ate it all. We will be going again in the future!

This is a lovely restaurant in beautiful settings. Food was great as well as the service. I did find it a little expensive compared to other fine dining restaurants we dine at, but this would not stop me from returning :)

Lovely place to go for a treat or special meal out. Evening dinner, tasting menu , lunchtimes or Sunday lunch, never had a bad experience although the tasting menu has to be my favourite. Great value too at £25. Well worth a visit!

First visit here - the staff were very attentive and the food both in choice and quality was excellent . The wine list was also a pleasant surprise in that there were some affordable choices which added to the experience. The only thing missing was a chocolate with my after dinner coffee which would have been nice!
