Welcome to
The Enterprise



The restaurant and bar that’s like a members’ club… but without the fee. The cozy country house style interior lends itself to a very relaxed comfortable atmosphere where a selection of contemporary British classics and a seasonal a la carte menu is served. Alongside a very reasonably priced set lunch menu Monday - Friday and a specials menu in the evening with the finest champagnes, new world wines and draft beers to compliment.

The buzzy popular bar serves a light bar food menu, fantastic cocktails & an array of spirits. The staff are knowledgeable, professional and very friendly. This iconic restaurant where walk ins are welcome, is loved by locals and visitors to the area alike. Parties are welcome and all enquiies are dealt with personally.

Great venue for lunch after a trip to one of the museums. Cosy feeling with great food and service and quiet enough to hold a conversation - a rarity in many restaurants these days.

We found the food in The Enterprise very good. However, we would not recommend to a friend as we found the waitresses to pushy. As soon as we entered, do you want bread or olives, then another asked the same after we had said no. I ordered a well done steak again the waitress said that this will take a long time so can we suggest a starter even though we said we just wanted main meals. We were also not given long enough to decide. About 3 different waitresses came to ask us. So, we had a lot of attention, but too much which felt too much like a "hard sell". The restaurant is very welcoming - good setting and the food was very good, but it felt like their sales pitch was set too high.

It is a lovely purely English ambience restaurant , with soft light and lower noise, even being a local where you can also only have drinks there. Service is fantastic , there is a good wine and spirits offer and food is really terrific, every time we have been there we have been completely satisfied .

I remember this pub from living in London 20-years ago. It was excellent then, so I tried to track it down when I was looking for a place to take friends visiting from California. It was all-around excellent this time, too!

Food was ok, a little over-cooked and underwhelming. Service was ok but a bit sales like at times. Not good value for money and I wouldn't bother coming back

Overall our visit the Enterprise is a very pleasant experience; the ambiance, service and food are all excellent. We were immediatly shown to our table; the menu, specials and wine list can make for some difficult choices best done with a Gin and Tonic.
A visit to The Enterprise has the ability significantly reduce stress levels, my only regret is that we don't get eat there as often as we might like.

I have not been to the enterprise for some time, so it was an absolute delight to return. I cannot fault it. Delicious food ,attentive staff, comfortable but classic furnishing and prices for food and wine do not break the bank. However if you want to celebrate they have some cracking wines!

Not a good place, no consistency. Three different waitress serving one table. Our main waitress tall brunette seemed moody, lack of knowledge seemed
Frustrated when taking out order. Food was good, from calamari to the venison. There still need a lot of work with the service at this place.
It’s a cozy little pub with decent decor
