The restaurant is small, but its size is not a failing but rather adds to the ambience. Due to the intimate setting the kitchen is in clearly visible from your table, so you can appreciate watching the talented chefs creating the delicious food which you are about to enjoy. This connection between the dining room and the kitchen, combined with the intimate setting, does make you feel that you are dining in your own private restaurant.
The restaurant hosts many themed events such as acoustic guitar evenings every Tuesday and the enjoyment of the house piano on a Sunday, as well as many others such as cocktail masterclasses. You can follow Dish on Twitter or Facebook to stay informed about themed nights, as well as the dining offers that are available.
I would describe the food at Dish as a stylish re-interpretation of British cuisine, produced from fresh ingredients. At first glance, the menu does seem slightly intimidating, with a myriad of flavors and ingredients jumping out at you, but what you are presented with is both aesthetically pleasing and tantalizingly tasty. I enjoyed the Valentines menu when I visited Dish, with my favourite dish being the sauté tiger prawns, but everything was simply delicious and I cannot fault any on the dishes which I ordered.
Sometimes the service at a restaurant can make or break your entire evening but again, as with the food, I cannot find fault with the service. All of the staff were attentive and friendly, making an already lovely evening even better.
Dish is perfect for that special occasion, whether you are indulging yourself or being treated by someone special, you will not be disappointed.
