Husband, myself and two kids called in on a Sunday evening for a meal. We were dining in the bar area, not the Dining Room. Even without a booking, and they were full, staff were able to accomodate us with a cancelled booking's table. Very...More

We expected a lot given it's reputation and it delivered. With 4 kids under ten between us we are in the cafe, not the main restaurant. But if that was anything to go by it will be well worth the drive back without the kids.

We went to this restaurant with friends on a Saturday night and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We chose the eight course degustation menu. The service was great. Definitely loved the ending (which I won't mention as I don't want to spoil the surprise for anyone)....More

My husband and I were fortunate enough to enjoy a degustation experience recently. I can honestly say the food, wines and service were exceptional. Having dined at a couple of similarly rated restaurants we feel that The Royal Mail was good value. Robin Wickens is...More
