Fantastic food to start off and amazing night, it was incredibly cheap, the food was of a high standard and I more more than satisfied. One small room for improvement, I did order olives and they still had the stones in. it wasn't made obvious until I nearly cracked a tooth on it.

This hidden gem never fails to deliver top-quality, beautifully-presented, yet really reasonably priced food with such consistency. Whether we're grabbing a quick bite from the daytime cafe menu or treating ourselves to a couple of courses from the bistro menu later in the day, every time we've been to this fabulous bistro we've always left with big smiles and a...

We called into this restaurant one Tuesday lunchtime on a Christmas shopping trip to sample the food. The place has a nice décor; it was warm and the waitress welcoming and friendly. We; my wife and I both ordered a lentil burrito. This boasted spicy lentils and rice in a tortilla topped with melted cheese, sour cream and salsa. We... More

We visited the bistro on a Saturday evening; meal was very good, great value and service. I particularly like the fact if you eat in the bistro and have bought tickets for the show they automatically reserve you a table downstairs in the comedy club also, this saves you having to rush a very good meal. We were in town... More

Very impressed on my first visit to the bistro. Menu isnt particularly innovative but what they do they do very well. The tempura prawns were great served with a toothsome and spicy dipping sauce. Although always tempted by comfort food options (burgers etc) I went for a caribbean flavoured fish and rice dish, very nice indeed with some clean and... More

We ordered a sausage and mash and a chicken roast. The sausages had a mustard mash and onion gravy which was very tasty and the... More

Delicious meal and awesome comedy venue downstairs. Great choice on the menu. My favourite is the prawn starter. And love trying out the different mains. Always a great welcome. Always look forward to our girls night out there. Best atmosphere.

I came here with a friend and went for the pre-show meal. The food was top notch and the service was good. The stand up downstairs was really good as well. Definitely book ahead though, as finding a table on the night could be tricky. The bar does get busy at the interval, but this is to be expected really.
