Went to this dump, now called TASTE not sure what that is meant to imply?? The bad taste in your mouth from the staff? the food? or the whole experience? Firstly the staff were very unfriendly, incompetent and downright rude and we could see why, as the owner, an elderly woman with a vicious tongue, was severely dressing down the... More

When we sat I thought let me have a look at trip advisor, the reviews seemed awful, but they were all dated a year back (the restaurant has changed its name -the Taste). I thought maybe give them a chance new name, new beginning. My girlfriend and I both ordered cod and chips. The drinks took 15min to arrive. Then... More

The best place to start is to leave this place when you arrive! The name has changed and like another reviewer I found The Ocean Restaurant name on the top of the receipt.....its name is now under "Taste Bar and Restaurant" Its started poorly...the waiter informed us that there would be a 20 minute wait for food, which we accepted....

The restuarant front looks different to the one in the picture as the one we went to had "Taste" branding, but this is the name that was on the receipt. My friend had a jacket potato with cheese which came out dry, cold and with lumps of cheese on it. I ordered the salmon which was an odd colour, dry... More

I don't understand the other negative reviews because we had a lovely meal here on Sunday 29th June. We shared Houmous (home made - Cypriot style mmmmmmm lovely) and Cod and chips. We will certainly revisit. They are in middle of refurb at the front so does not look inviting enough. Please don't get put off - please go and... More

The food is not good. The service is slow and it depends of how they see you. The waiter was ok with us but I show how rude they can get from the people eating next to us. They put service charge which the owner keeps it for himself as the waiter told me so I asked to be taken... More

Took the kids there last night. After more than an hour wait our burnt and dry meals arrived. Salad consisted of a wedge of tomato and a slice of cucumber. No sauces were offered. A toasted cheese sandwich was melted plastic cheese on white untoasted bread. The wine tasted like cask wine. My daughter didn't get her free ice cream... More

What a disaster! Don't go here !! Raw burgers chicken less chicken wings, items missing from meals! Shall I go on?? The waiter was apologising the whole time we were there. They still charge 12.5% service charge even if food is sent back. You have to pay service charge on everything - food is not cheap to start with! The... More

Great range of fish and chips, nicely cooked and not too greasy. The first place I have been to in ages that does proper children's portions, rather than kids meal deals. One of the waiters was struggling but the two senior waiters were helpful and polite. The real problem with this restaurant is the appalling toilets, they are at least... More

There was one other person in the restaurant when I arrived. This should have told me something. It claims to be "Pub and Restaurant", but it's neither; it's more of an overpriced cafe. I asked what was on the fish platter, and the waiter didn't appear to know. I ordered grilled prawns to start, which were OK, but two of... More
