The Magic Mushroom was a perfect venue to enjoy very good food to celebrate a 21st birthday. We had a set 3 course menu with several choices.

One of my favs in the area- food not cheap but very good. Tables spaced so you don't feel crapped and decor light and airy.

What a lovely place! Cosy, great atmosphere, friendly staff, beautiful and delicious food. Cannot fault a thing from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. Had melt in the mouth goats cheese balls on spinach and beetroot, a delicious risotto, then ice cream which had a leaf garnish with the most interesting aniseed flavour. This is our new... More
