Loved this new place on the Cathedral Green. Despite the fact that it cured with rain outside the staff did an excellent job of creating a great place to eat. Food is amazing. Love the fact that menu is small, yet everything was so tasty. Will definitely be coming back!

This was such an enjoyable experience and all of the staff were amazing. The food was incredible. All 4 of us had different things from the menu and everything was delicious. Our first trip to No 5 was on their launch day and yes there were teething problems back then but my goodness they have pulled it out of the bag now. Great location too. We will be back

Staff were very accommodating and made every effort to make us comfortable in the outdoor covered space in rainy weather. The food was delicious and service great. My only suggestion is to offer more than one veggie main. One of our family had the only choice of beetroot gnocchi which was good and perhaps needed a sauce.

The restaurant is beautiful and the service was brilliant. Our waiter was very attentive and polite. The wine was delicious and very reasonably priced.

£17.50 for a darts farm pork chop without any potatoes. Is a lot of money definitely not value for money . To add sides was starting price of £3.50 . Not much choice on starters 4 of us went none of us liked any of the starters which was a shame .

Excellent service and lovely wine. Food was very hit and miss. I very much enjoyed my pizza but other members of my table did not fully enjoy their food. I would say it was expensive for the quality. I would have expected to pay £10-£12 for my food rather than the £15-£20z

Unfortunately our table had been double booked, this was quickly rectified but it meant we sat on the front terrace rather than in the courtyard so it was a different ambience. Food was great, lots of it and really good service.

We enjoyed our time at No5. We were made to feel very welcome and our waiter, Nathan was a delight. The scallops starter was really tasty. My friend had the gnocchi for her mains and said that although it tasted fine the texture was a bit weird. I had the Spanish mussels, which were lovely although there was far too much Chirizo. Some of the mussels didn’t open and Nathan kindly got me a discount without me even asking which was very sweet. I will definitely come again
