Be sure not to be too hungry when you visit...tiny portions. So expensive per mouthful. OK flavours and local wines always good but not sure about value for money or vibe of the whole place. Everyone is knowledgeable but felt like there was a lack...More

Wonderful tasting menu with both an alcoholic and non alcoholic wine flight. The delightful delicious morsels which included ensuring pregnancy food was as sumptuous as the rest. Need to book but so worth waiting for

We went to Isaacs soon after it had opened, and the original concept was that everyone had to be there at the same time, there was only a taster menu, and each dish was explained before it was served. The whole experience was excellent, and...More

Took my partner here as a treat after she moved house. The taster menu ran to nine courses of really amazing locally sourced food. I had the non-alcoholic ‘wine’ flight and my partner had the alcoholic one. Both were really well paired with the food....More

A group of 4 who are used to dining out. Food was nice, although very small portions, but the atmosphere and service was somewhat lacking. We felt we were there to listen only to the sommelier who certainly liked his own voice, but after that...More

You can fit a wheelchair in the restaurant, and you would have a lovely meal. However I don’t think the toilet would be big enough.

On both occasions that I visited I left hungry as did my husband. One course of the 6+ courses was a single carrot! I think they have taken tasting menu to a ludicrous level here. Plus we had three sweet dishes and as a... More

Afraid not. With Isaacs you need to book and pay online for the date you want. It's a small restaurant and they put so much effort in, they can't afford empty seats. Matt

We serve contemporary English fine dining food sourced locally. However, we take this to the next level by actually visiting the local producers so we can tell the stories behind the food, where it comes from and how it is grown. These visits are the base for building the menu, which is inspired by individual seasonal ingredients seen on these trips. We are now starting to grow some of our own herbs, fruits and vegetables. We also aim to break down the traditional barrier that usually exists in fine dining between the diners and the chefs. We believe that by putting the chefs in the centre of it all, preparing the food in front of diners, interacting with them and introducing dishes, a more interactive environment is created for the diners. The pace set by the chefs creates a more lively, vibrant and casual atmosphere, but with no compromise to the quality of the food. These food events at ‘Isaac At’ offer so much more than a standard restaurant experience; they are an event lasting all evening and something that will be remembered even longer.
