"We had a lovely lunch today. Food was excellent and you have a couple of young guys serving who are really good. I train customer management all over the world so I'm always conscious of the attention and attitude of staff. I was so impressed. We've just booked again! Thank you so much". - August 2023
"Great food, great service and very friendly. Lovely place for a special dinner or just a small lunch and drinks." - August 2023
"This was the first time we've eaten in the evening at Basset Down. We've been impressed with their food in the daytime so we decided to give it a try. To start, the ambience is very pleasant with lovely views, comfortable seats, very clean and well laid tables. Full of other diners enjoying themselves.. some a bit noisy! Staff extremely polite, friendly and efficient. I had the seabass. My wife had the monkfish tail from the specials menu. I'm not an easy person to impress, but impressed I was.
The presentation and flavours of both meals was comparable to a fine dining restaurant. I could not fault the experience in any way. Other than it being a bit noisy it was first rate dining. We now intend to make this one of our 'go to' places! Many thanks to Subhash, Dylan, Jess, Dan, and of course Chef Sam, who by our reckoning must be on the way to Michelin star standard! You all worked together as a great team! Noted some other reviews not so flattering, but sensible people disregard those and speak about their own personal experience. A gold star to all, and keep up the good work!" - August 2023
