Busy in here on a Thursday evening, but stayed for a bite to eat, all very nice, and a good atmosphere.

A lovely coffee lounge/wine bar restaurant, popped in for morning coffee and turned the clock back by using their old fashioned wooden board games, good quality drinks, wife and free news papers, also noted a book swap corner. Prices reasonable, didn't try food and a brief trip this time. Unique and worth a visit

A group of us drink in the LUDO lounge every week and on this occasion thought we'd have a snack. Ordered fish finger sandwich. Order arrived quickly enough but white bread was stale, there was only one small fish finger (over cooked hard and dry) in each sandwich the rest of the sandwich stuffed with limp (definitely not fresh crispy...

Used to visit regularly, used to be good- good atmosphere and good food. Decor has become shabby, food still ok but not so good. Often lots of rowdy kids.

It was early so the place was neigh on empty, lots of seating when busy, order at the bar and wait for your food. We chose a table outside as it was a nice warm evening. My... More

Coffee's served first with dirty cutlery; but then had to wait 30mjns before food brought out (hard to understand why it took so long as food looked like it was canteen standard); again dirty cutlery.

The Loungers chain does something that not many places achieve - make it somewhere I would visit for breakfast, lunch and dinner! Visited for a leisurely Sunday brunch and very much enjoyed the Eggs Florentine. Consistently good food, well priced in a convenient location. Great for families, couples, groups and singles too!

Popped in with some friends for breakfast, have been a few times before and found I ok. Not sure if I've just got used to better quality elsewhere or if standard have slipped, but was a bit disappointed today.
