I came down to visit from Hertfordshire to visit my son. The person that took our orders etc was exceptional & incredibly friendly…unfortunately I forgot the name. Hope it trickles down to them however. Kindest regards, Jules Mattingly

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.

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

Lovely food and service was pretty good. Hugely disappointed that there was obviously an issue with our table when we arrived and so we were put on a large round table by the stair case and had to endure the door being opened continuously all evening. We would have been warmer outside in the tent under the heater. Totally defeated the point of me booking ahead by a few weeks and booking an indoor table! Shame as that’s all we will remember our first visit to No.5 by. I was freezing and very uncomfortable. The rest of my table sat with their coats on all night! I have emailed the restaurant about this and heard nothing back which is very disappointing.

Great food that arrived in good time, staff were very good and clearly had a lot to manage. However, it would have been nice if more attention was paid to pouring the wine and drinks rather than being left on the table with the screw cap still on- small details that would have improved the quality of the service. Overall a lovely restaurant and will definitely be back!

Great buzz, excellent attentive service.well priced food and wine. Menu, good choice of starters. Mains: Steak, burger, Spanish mussels, moules frite, fish of the day and beetroot gnocchi. So 2 mussel dishes plus fish, 2 beef dishes, and a vegetarian, the ‘special’ was also veggie. So although all food had by our party was good I think the variety of dishes could be improved upon.

We really enjoyed our al-fresco experience and the garden was lovely. The food was a little cool otherwise we have rated a 10 . Cutlery nearer the table would be good as we had to wait when both the mains and desserts were served. We look forward to returning.

The setting is fantastic. We ate in the back dining room which was very nice. Ordered arancini to start which was tasty. My friend had the fish of the day which she enjoyed by replacing chips with potatoes. I had the pea risotto. It was presented very well but had very little/no flavour at all and was very bland. Within the risotto were a few huge clumps of cabbage. They should have been smaller. I had a similar dish at a local restaurant last week which was absolutely delicious. This needs huge improvement, I could not taste the pea, garlic, mint....anything... it just tasted like plain risotto rice, such a shame. We ordered a chocolate brownie to share. I was expecting a warm squidgy brownie. Instead came a cold rectangle of dense chocolate. Although it was tasty it was not what we had ordered, the description was very poor as this was certainly not a brownie, it was more like iced chocolate parfait. When the waiter cleared our mains he asked if we had enjoyed them and I told him about the risotto so I was a little disappointed there was no partial discount at the end of the meal. We had a very friendly pleasant waiter, however when we asked for the bill he literally brought the card machine and charged our cards, we didn’t even get sight of the actual bill to check before paying. We then moved for cocktails in the front garden. We ordered three porn star martini is which is usually passionfruit, however they all tasted of pineapple. Also seemed a little weak bearing in mind they were £9. All in all we had a pleasant evening but I probably wouldn’t rush back for food

I thoroughly enjoyed my first visit to No5. My meal was tasty and our waitress was attentive and friendly.

The table we had felt a bit gloomy and it was very cold in that corner. Service was OK if a bit slow at times. No complaints about the food, and the price was good.
