I Went there with my girlfriend and she loved her Mediterranean pizza! Mine (pulled pork) was very tasty as well. Took my parents another day as well and they liked it too. Highly recommend as it is great service and very good value for money (especially if you get student discount or lunch offer). If it's good weather, you can... More

Brilliant meal and drinks. Best service I have ever had from our waitress China. Food was delicious and we never had a chance to wonder where our drinks were as our lovely waitress was on it taking our orders and making sure we were super happy. A+ x

I heard about this place through a friend and went because of the 50% off deal for students, upon arriving here for the first time it was clear that we seemed like a hassle to staff who just outright ignored us after more than enough time had passed to be approached my friend grabbed a menu herself, I mean for...

I haven't visited this bar for a long time but we decided to have a pre- theatre meal. The staff were very enthusiastic, polite and amusing. Our waiter was singing! Our orders were taken promptly, drinks were a bit slow to arrive. I had a chilli with chorizo; it was absolutely delicious and a huge portion. My friend had a... More

Popped in for a quick lunch with the boyfriend. He had the pie of the day, which was enormous and I had a chat to the waiter about their gluten free options. To be told they can adapt pretty much any dish to be gluten free was great! I ended up with a tasty 'naked' (no bun) Caribbean chicken burger,... More

Visited as a group of 6 for lunch and ordered from the lunch menu (you would assume these are designed to be produced quickly). There were only a dozen other customers at this point. Staff were friendly and food was good, but the lunchtime wait is way too long to be feasible - it took over 30 minutes for the... More

First, the good points, and there are many. Quantity of food. We had port tortillas as a starter, and burgers and a pizza for our mains. All of the portions were very generous. Quality of food. I had Black and Blue burger. The brioche buns were grilled just right – crispy, but not burnt, just like a rash of back... More
