I was invited for my birthday by family, as a surprise, and they chose here. It certainly was a surprise to me to be here again and we had an exceptional Sunday lunch. We chose starters of turnip soup, air dried beef and a seafood chowder with samphire. The starters were accompanied by different breads, the turnip soup and seafood... More

Visited the anchor bistro which is downstairs of restaurant 23. My husband and I called in for lunch. It has been recently refurbished in a nautical theme, it was very nice and also very clean. The service was good although it was a quiet afternoon so can't say what a busy service would be like. We had burgers and chips,... More

Met the chef Raymond McArdle a few days in advance - he was energetic, engaging and clearly passionate about his food. The menu, food and service on the day was fantastic! We had a party of approx 30 and everyone raved about it. It is good food guaranteed and we will be back many more times. Thanks to all!

We have frequented Restaurant 23 on a number of occasions and have never had a disappointing meal there. The food had always been of high quality, the menu varied, the staff are helpful and the wine list is comprehensive. Well worth a visit!

went here for a meal with my wife...this restaurant boasts themselves as fine dining.... nope.. the food is just above average. the chef should focus on cooking good food rather than how it sits on a plate..staff are that relaxed one of them nearly fell over backwards..more like a greasy spoon than a fine dining establishment

Thank you for Reviewing our Restaurant but unfortunately we do not agree this time as you have failed to mention what food you had to eat or if there was something wrong, you did not bring it to our attention which we gladly would of had replaced or refunded so at this time we are unable to take your criticism...

We're fairly frequent diners here. The Sunday lunch is usually quite good, with the only downside being that the menu can be a bit samey and repetitive. So to avoid becoming fed up we only go every few weeks or so. Today it was New Year's Day Sunday lunch. It was a long Sunday lunch as it took 20 minutes... More

2nd year running the work xmas dinner has been held here and yet again it was disappointing. Service was beyond slow at times and portions were more in line with something from a kids menu. Lovely setting for a meal. Pity about the meal and service.
