I came here for a valentines day meal and was thoroughly impressed by how good the service was and how fast the food came even though it was quite busy. The food was delicious and I left with a very full stomach (but in a good way). The menu offered a good variety of different starters and mains and the... More

So. We have been to bretts before, and it was cosy and old fashioned but we liked it that way. We had no idea it had changed hands or had a makeover so we were shocked to arrive to a much classier restaurant. While this is not a bad thing it was very empty and devoid of the old charm.... More

My girlfriends and I came for a Valentines meal which didn't have the infamous fish and chips on the set Valentine's menu, however, it gave us the opportunity to try out the wonderful... More

New people have taken over this place. They have redecorated it, updated the equipment and recruited new staff (wearing T-shirts with logos) They have failed to realise that the main attraction was the very fresh and freshly-fried fish and chips. I went there this evening (5th January). A radio was blaring. The young man took my order. Instead of frying... More

Hi, Really sorry to hear about your bad experience in our takeaway. I would like to start by saying this is no reflection on the incredibly high standards now employed in our restaurant and would love for you to come back and experience some of the lovely new dishes on our menu. The fish is from the same supplier as... More
