Twenty Seven by Jamie Rogers
The tasting menu was excellent, a really nice mix of flavours and textures, presented beautifully. Our 2 teenagers really enjoyed the experience and flavours which was great to see. Portion sizes for the main dish (Lamb) could have been bigger, but appreciate this is a tasting menu.
Unfortunately the service was more akin to a chain restaurant than somewhere aspiring to a Michelin star. Plates were "plonked" down, often 2 plates were served and then a few minutes wait for the next 2. Each course was described when presented, but on 2 occasions was described incorrectly. The bill was incorrect so had to send back. Just generally wasn't what we expected from a restaurant of this quality. The music and ambiance was good though.
However, the food still made us happy but would like to see the service improve.
Interesting and delicious menu with local produce. Good value wines. Will try a cocktail next time!
Excellent meal with local quality ingredients and good atmosphere
Food was good but portions a little small for the price. Decor that had photos of dishes on the wall was more like a takeaway and the ambience didn’t match the food or price. Maybe some original paintings would enhance the decor. Staff were very pleasant.
Small restaurant that has been very nicely fitted out.
The menu has some interesting choices.
The food was very good as was the chosen wine.
Service between appetiser and main course was a bit slow.
Overall very enjoyable and would definitely go again.
Excellent food but service lets it down. We, a party of four, arrived on time and there were 3 staff around the bar, but no customers and we were basically ignored. Then the woman in charge came down and having finally found our name asked us to wait on 2 rather old grubby looking sofas instead of showing us to our table. No drinks offered. When finally we had ordered and the food arrived it was delicious but we spent the whole evening looking at the stairs to see if the next food appearing might be ours. We ordered desserts but after quite a wait the waitress came and said they would be another 5/10 minutes. We cancelled the order and left. That was our third visit and probably our last - it seems such a shame that with such good food - you cannot have a relaxed and enjoyable evening.
Loved it. Great for teenagers too.
A beautifully created meal - lots of gorgeous tastes.
A lovely atmosphere. Almost felt like normal again after lockdown.
We preferred this restaurant to the Angel as food was more adventurous and the cost was much more reasonable.
Stuck on a table by the entrance door, zero ambiance. Got the bill wrong twice, poor attendance and although food quality was reasonable the portion size was very small. Had to feed my 16-year old again when he got home.
Refined and sophisticated cuisine, courteous and well informed service in an airy and well ventilated space. A truly delightful evening. Thank you Jamie,
We had an excellent meal on our visit to celebrate an anniversary. The tasting menu was excellent although the second desert course (excellent though it was) felt a bit like a menu filler. 5 dishes or a different style of 6th dish would have been better but that doesn’t detract from a fabulous meal despite this being in the wake of the easing of COVID-19 lockdown.
Great food & hospitality!!
Very good selection of taster menu. New experience and very interesting selection of food. Quite unique
A fab evening, wonderful food, service not on point but adequate
Fantastic local food, cooked beautifully. However, the service did not match the fine food. We were shown to a seat by the open door, had a drinks order taken and were basically ignored for 20 mins. No menu, no nibbles. We were then seated at a table
which was not laid. Just a bare tablecloth. No real sense of feeling special or welcome. No allergens on the menu meant one of our younger party ate a dessert with peanut butter in it and experienced an allergic reaction. There was no real concern shown when we asked if by any chance there were nuts in the dessert and the maitre de did not immediately know. I would have expected more concern. If you want to charge high prices for fine food you have to get the whole experience right, please. With the right service this could be a stunning restaurant!
this spontaneous restaurant visit was the culinary highlight of our first post-lockdown, let's-escape-the-capital-trip to devon. if you are near by go, it is a nice & airy place with excellent food & wines. the service is nonchalant, no fuss, no special attention - just to the point. we would definitely come back when/if in the area!
A great menu, extremely well executed. Wonderful combinations of flavours. Excellent service - appropriately discreet yet attentive. All in all a great hospitality experience.
As ever, the food was exceptional. Delicious Sunday lunch enjoyed.
Superb food and the wine was excellent. An organic rioja which I would recommend. Anna was really friendly and while the restaurant was quite quiet, the atmosphere was cosy and quite romantic.
Our order was clearly forgotten and the starter took >45mins, no apology just given some bread we had already declined. The main cause-venison was inedible. It tasted like a bucket of salt was over it, very dated, like French cuisine from 20yrs ago. The dauphinoise was not at all creamy and barely cooked and the brocolli again too salty to eat. The sauce/meat and accompaniments all tasted the same/salty rich gravy.
The maitre'd didn't apologise and was very snooty, just took the food back, then tried to charge for the sides. The chef did not come out and ask why. There was not even a sorry you didn't enjoy your meal as we left. It took 2 hours to receive our main meal from arriving and everything else was then shut when we left!
Not worth the money, not Masterchef standard, dated and salty food.
Food was wonderful - just a little too much salt with my Hake and chorizo together with the samphire but the beef was superb. Atmosphere is almost zero - I wouldn't feel comfortable brining a group of friends here as the noise level may be frowned upon.
Portions are quite small (quail) but the starters were both delicious. The venison was a little overpowered by the sauce and Kate felt the same about the sauce with the fish (chorizo) is not a favourite with either of us. The Rhubarb is stunning but again quite small, its lightness was appreciated after the venison. However these are very minor quibbles and personal.
It would be good for staff if service could be added to the bill. Few of us carry much cash these days
I enjoy cooking, I enjoy eating, I enjoy company.
We had the six course taster menu.
Each course wonderful,I shall try at home some poor imitations, but the food was so inspiring., you would miss out in not trying to relplicate at least one dish.Excellent service with verbal notes.Some needed, others not. Go for a lovely relaxed night, not a quick bite before the cinema.
Prices for drinks? A bit steep, I thought, but this was a Birthday occasion, so cannot grumble.
Would I go again? Given it was my second visit, clearly YES.
Our first time at 27 and we loved it. Service was super, the restaurant was cosy and the food and wine were delicious. The wine we chose was unavailable so a replacement was chosen which was more expensive but charged at the cheaper wines price - we didn’t expect this but were nicely surprised. The hostess was a total pro and the food was really fantastic; we had mains, dessert and cheese and they were all superb. Would highly recommend.
Thanks for a lovely meal.
We enjoyed the 6 course taster menu and my husband had the wine flight. Every course was delicious. Our favourite was was the french onion soup. It was hands down the most unique, best flavoured soup we had both ever eaten.
The front of house team were knowledgeable, friendly and courteous.
I highly recommend this restaurant xx
Pleasant food and service. Both starters good. Enjoyed beef main more than Mushroom Pasta. Side of Dauphinoise Potato wasn't worth having. Thought the beer list could have been a little more exciting.
Delicious food. Highlights were Mackerel starter, Diver Sole and Hake mains and both desserts! Beautifully presented and good sized portions. Highly recommended.
The food was excellent and beautifully presented. One of our party was dairy intolerant and they accommodated her requirements brilliantly. She was very impressed!
Would definitely eat there again.
Fabulous fine dining experience in Kingsbridge - thoroughly recommended!
Excellent food on NYE first.class ! Service was brilliant too
It's important that i firstly mention how wonderful the food was, beautifully presented and a wonderful taste sensation with each dish (taster menu of 6 dishes) each one a delight. Sadly what wasn't and can only be described as a comedy act by the end was the service. We arrived to barely a welcome, the main waitress arriving after us (12pm). We initiated a drinks order and asked for our coats to be put away, menus we took ourselves from the stand by the door. We sat there for a good 20mins before we asked to be sat at our table. Taken upstairs we waited (thought there might be some bread? Alas not).
Dish 1 arrives....forgotten to tell the chef I was gluten free so bread roll removed and not replaced. No explanation of the dish albeit that came by course 4!
Dish 2 arrives, again forgotten I was gluten free so dish taken away 'edible soil' removed and given back to me.
Our neighbouring party then had a call....from the reception downstairs to ask if they were still going to make their booking, the poor chap looked totally perplexed as he replied 'yes i'm upstairs'.
I don't want to be mean, it was Christmas I have no idea what might have been going in personally in their lives but it was an utter shambles from start to finish. Not that we likely would have tipped but not having a tip function on your card machine is unusual, our bill was over £300 so unless you are carrying wadges of cash around tips I imagine are few and far between. I've ummed and arrhed over writing this for days now but I feel it's important to let you know, i hope you take it in the spirit in which it is intended. I would to return but only when you front of house is in order.
Never, ever a disappointment - food fantastic and staff warm and welcoming. We love 27 😊.
The food was absolutely amazing here- really interesting combinations of flavours. the staff were a little green, service was slow and they seemed flustered at times, but they were very friendly and helpful! Music was very loud downstairs in the bar so we wouldn't want to hang around after our meal. Overall a really nice place to go for a special occasion.
Jamie’s food is always exciting, beautifully cooked and presented. The service is professional, efficient and friendly. We were entertaining friends from the Cotswolds to Sunday lunch and they were impressed too. It’s a small restaurant and sadly there was a large and rather noisy party there at the same time making conversation on other table tricky. Perhaps the downstairs area could be set up and used as a separate party dining area? Apart from the noise an excellent dining experience.
Excellent. A jewel hidden in Kingsbridge. Worth travelling a very long way for.
Second visit, will recommend to those who will appreciate.
Would definitely recommend twenty seven, Jamie clearly has a lot of passion for his work and it's great to have somewhere different in Kingsbridge.
We were disappointed by the flavour balance in the dishes. The combinations looked good on the menu but failed to deliver. My starter of celeriac contained little celeriac but so much brulee it was too sweet and tasted more like a pudding. The combination of hake and chicken wing confit didnt work and it was all too salty. The pudding was not delicately flavoured
Great new restaurant in Kingbridge ideal for a special occasion
