Work with the best seasonal produce that we can use

Service

We want to provide the best possible service to the customer. All staff receive a high standard of training in not only customer service but also training in the product on the plate, led by our restaurant manager Marty Corley. This ensures that customers not only come on that ‘special occasion’ but will see House Of Plates as a restaurant one visits 2-3 times a week.
