                                        Lovely staff, fantastic service and the Christmas menu was delicious. Can’t thank the staff enough for making our wedding anniversary so special. Cannot wait to go back in the new year.

                                        Food was just ok and service was very rushed. All orders including dessert taken at the start, probably due to pandemic restrictions.

The presentation of each course is also beautiful. We have been quite a few times and will keep going back. I would highly recommend Pearl brasserie.

                                        Le Pearl Brasserie is superb. Although a set lunch menu for Christmas, both my husband and I would have been happy with any of the 3 options of starter, main and dessert. We love it so much we're going back again for lunch on Thursday.

The service was immaculate, kind, lovely staff who were so attentive. The food was delicious, and they have speciality vegetarian and veggie options as well. We will definitely be back in future. Thanks so much to the team at Pearl for making our anniversary so special x

                                        Booked this for an intimate dinner for 2 before Christmas. Everything was top class. Welcoming, friendly, informed staff. Food was excellent. Fillet of beef was the best in a long while. Ambience was perfect. Highly recommended.

                                        Lovely table and very attentive but non-intrusive service. The choice of wine by our charming waitress was excellent as indeed was the food and the overall menu. It really was a wonderful way to kick-start the Christmas and was such a welcome tonic to the past few weeks. Well done to all concerned and thanks again.
