I've just returned from Chameleon where I attended a work night out, and it wasn't half bad. Quite trendy, if that's your thing, and the food and drink were pretty good. I can't comment on pricing, as the evening was on the company dime, but I get the impression it's at the somewhat higher end of the spectrum.

A couple of colleagues had the fish and risotto which they were not as impressed with though. The one main stand out... More

We had a recent lunch here. Some elements of the meal were good - meat with the main was great but let down by badly cooked veg and a rather strange dessert concocted of victoria sponge and undercooked pached pear.
