Some quotes from guests submitted feedback

“Everything was awesome but what really blew my mind was the humility of Eddie, coupled with his skills and genius.  This was our first visit (gutted we haven’t found it before now). Last year for our Birthday treat we did the Kitchen Table at Sat Bains and Eddie’s food and the overall experience was every bit as good. When you see chefs at Michelin Star places turning out the same meals year in year out, one starts to realise just how special the Walled Gardens is. It’s one of the best chefs truly at the top of their game, cooking amazing food where every tiny aspect has been lovingly thought over, in his kitchen, for you. 

It’s at least as good as every 1 Michelin star experience anywhere in the UK, probably closer to 2 stars"
"One of the best dining experiences we have ever had. The food was sensational, every single dish was amazing. Eddie is a perfect host."

"The food was, as always, a very high standard, Michelin Star worthy! Eddie is an amazing chef and host."

"An experience that will blow you away. Up there with Michelin Star chefs. Very friendly and very professional."
"Outstanding experience, great food and environment. Highly recommend."

'We loved every minute of it, one of the best dining experiences we've ever had"

"Fabulous food, better than some Michelin restaurants. Eddie is a brilliant chef."
