The food was delicious and the service excellent. I liked the ambience inside too. Also they welcome dogs in the casual bar area as you enter.
Fothergills was recommended to me by my hairdresser and we have been twice now - first as a walk-in and this time with a reservation. Both times have been a delight. The food is wonderful (and there's enough of it), the atmosphere is cosy, the servers are attentive (and make great recommendations). We will probably make this our regular restaurant when going to the theatre.
We received excellent and attentive service and the food was lovely, with very generous portions. Lovely decor too, felt very homely and relaxed. Will be coming back.
