Wilson's Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Reassuringly limited choice of very original, seasonal and well sourced dishes - Magnolia blossom and mackerel a surprise and a success. Despite the hipster beards, staff prove charming, enthusiastic and helpful. Small room is pleasant enough, though noise from kitchen can be intrusive."
"Short menu of 3 starters, 3 mains, 3 desserts that seem to change on a daily basis. All beautifully cooked and presented. My wife believed the eel broth was the best thing she had ever tasted. A nice feature is that many wines can be bought by the glass, carafe or bottle. Restaurant of the year for us."
