We have visited the Side Door a number of times over the years. When we first started eating there the food was absolutely delicious. However over the years the quality seemed to dip, then improve and then dip again. We have speculated that the change in quality may well have been because of a change in chef. We booked for...

The food here was excellent. Well cooked and presented. Service was a little patchy in places but nothing to detract from the overall experience. Close to the Philharmonic and a out 20 minutes from Albert Docks. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.

I am sick and tired of reading "reviews" from serial complainers who twist the truth and give incomprehensible and unjustified ratings. I'm on a quest to take tripadvisor back from these spoiled brats who bring the whole community down. My reviews will always reflect on reality and not an axe I have to grind. Me and my partner visited The... More

I ate here with family on a Saturday evening a couple of months ago and was really impressed. The staff were very friendly and attentive and the food was delicious. We had one mishap when one member of our party ordered his steak cooked blue and when it arrived it was medium-well, but when we brought this to the attention... More

Where to start? Went on a Monday night, starter and a main and half a bottle of house red for £20. Sounded great. Maximum of five other tables seated. We waited nearly two hours for both courses and when I told this to the owner she blamed it on how long chicken breasts take to cook (spoiler: they don't take... More

I went for the Sunday roast, with two courses for £10 and we found it excellent value for money. The beef was tender and the portions generous, although each of us managed to leave clean plates! I had the sticky toffee pudding for dessert and it was one of the best I've had. We were sitting upstairs by the windows... More

We go to the Side Door fairly regularly as it has good food and a nice atmosphere. It's a good place to take clients and also for romantic meals. However service, although friendly and welcoming, tends to be slow and the vegetarian selection repetitive. On our most recent visit, our puddings took ages to arrive (at lunchtime and the restaurant... More
