Went with my wife for the guinea pig evening, where you try meals for the next menu. At the beginning we were asked if we had preferences or allergies, then the meals were brought out for us. All of the meals were of excellent quality. The desserts we had we shared, and couldn't decide which was the best, they were... More

Visited midweek and found their lunchtime menu was so limited, only 4 choices on each course. The food was very nice but such a poor choice (no fish option) and the place was deserted. £15 for 2 course and £20 for 3 courses - way overpriced!

Hi Peter, Thanks for your review, i would like to start by saying that our menu is displayed outside the restaurant clearly stating the choices and prices, so if this was to disappoint you so much then why dine with us in the first place? We aren't claiming to be the cheapest restaurant in town but personally i do feel... More

We have visited Iris a many times and been very happy with the food. Until the around the world in 10 plates, and I would of had better street food. Not worth its money too much carbs, the service was appalling. No plates were given out, no cutlery, and when I did receive it, it was placed the wrong way... More

Hi, Firstly i would like to say i am genuinely upset about this review as i don't think its a true reflection of our restaurant as there were people who absolutely loved the event and have booked onto the next one. Yes there was a few hiccups however it was the first event of its kind and I'm sure the... More

I've been wanting to try this place for a while and finally got the chance last night. It was well worth the weight. The belly pork just fell apart when it was stroked with my fork and the skin was crispy and flavoursome. The mash was quite thick in texture, tasted nice and creamy but felt very light in the...

We went for my girlfriend's birthday meal the staff were extremely pleasant and professional. The food was amazing I had the lamb for the main course which... More

A group of 8 friends, we were well received, courteously served and all left very contented. The smoked haddock scotch egg was amazingly delicious, and the veryplain and simple pork belly exactly right. Millionaire's pudding "our way" was an experience!

Throughly enjoyed our family Sunday lunch on the Bank holiday weekend. Great food, the beef was perfect. The Parkin dessert was an absolute treat. Everything including the service was super will definitely be back maybe on an evening.
