Impressed on a number of fronts ..... well worth a visit

I was working nearby and read the reviews ........ I went for an early lunch. Deserted right through lunch on a Wednesday ..... I don't understand why. Nice atmosphere, attentive staff, good menu choice, good-size helpings and GREAT VALUE. A huge bowl of home-made soup with bread for £3.45... read more

Early evening visit with my daughter and a friend. The food was amazing, staff very efficient and friendly. There is a beautiful selection of pastries and cakes all made on the premises by Evelyn. A lovely experience I will definitely be repeating.

I told the Engine House changed hands the week before I visited. Not up to the stashed of food that I have come to expect in here and hope it was only teething troubles.

Engine house provides what I can only describe as the bacon sandwich of champions, however the lady behind the counter could do with perking up slightly, I don't think I've ever seen her smile in all my numerous visits!!

This is a charming restaurant a little away from the action (a positive). Food is of great quality and taste and atmosphere relaxed. Been here twice and I highly recommend ( adjacent parking in case people are put off by city centre location).

So I had a bad couple of days at work & it's Friday (30th May)! Comfort food & a drink sound about right. Being a regular, I know the burgers are superb & I was looking forward to a big helping of relish with the chips (they really should bottle it). The Engine House bar was buzzing with the usual...

I have eaten here on a few occasions and was lucky enough to be able to book it for a joint birthday celebration with my sister. The food and service were (as ever) top notch with every one of our 50 strong party delighted with their food I can't recommend this place highly enough
