I have taken many of my clients to Dylan's at various times of the day and night and I can honestly say that myself or any of my clients have never had a bad meal or bad experience. Being in a family business myself I can understand how difficult it must be for costs with massive vat and tax bills.... More

Whilst recommending a good friend of a lovely place to eat, I decided to show them reviews and address on trip advisor as I knew they would not disappoint and I was proven correct. I have been going to Dylan's for a number of years and have never once been disappointed. The atmosphere is always very pleasant and warming and... More

This place used to be really good when it first opened, great service and good value food, we've noticed a decline in standards over the past couple of years. Took mum for lunch today, the lady behind the bar taking the order was disinterested and surly, I could see she just didn't want to be there, was very rude when... More

We had a fab night here, food was lovely with a great choice for veggies and meateaters. The main thing we loved was the atmosphere with the singer and dancing! Great for a night experience not just food.

Good simple food at a fair price. Clean and friendly environment and a welcoming atmosphere with local beers and an artist on Saturday night. Have ate at Dylan's on several occasions with both Family and Friends and have never had a bad experience. Would recommend you book for a Friday or Saturday night. Also, toilets are up two flights of... More

Went for friends birthday. Five of the party ordered curry & rice. Was then told that they only had two left. That meant two of us had to reorder. I then chose broccoli & cream cheese bake. The portion size was poor. At first glance looked fine. Once through the top layer of melted cheese the sauce was like water... More
