It just goes to show that if you do not support your really original and good restaurants, you will have less of them. It is the greatest shame to lose an original and wonderful restaurant. I only hope that the owners open up the same...More

The Embe restaurant closed recently. I understand that there is no chance of it re-opening. Passed it yesterday and it looks empty. Obviously can't rate it as it no longer exists

Sadly an email has come out from them stating that after 5 years they have closed the business. Such a shame, I wish Nick and his team all the best for their future endeavours, and thank them for some lovely meals and memories.

Great service, great food, great atmosphere. Chef came out and said hello when we arrived which was a nice touch, and his food was absolutely spot on. The service was great, as was the atmosphere. Thank you!

After a drink in the garden, reading the menu, we moved into the restaurant. Friendly staff, tasty food and a very reasonable bill. We saved enough room for the mango crumble and custard. We will be going back.
