Cheap Eats at Lunchtime - Nothing Special : But definitely good value

A bar (and club at night) - with a street cafe attached : very good value pub grub and snacks. Nothing fancy, but you get a cheap meal and a drink for less than you would pay for a meal deal in McD / BK / KFC etc. Staff hard working and friendly

Polite, young friendly hard-working staff. (Their prompt attention to clearing and cleaning tables did not go unnoticed) Delicious pie unusually for "pub grub", home-made. Fish & chips also good with nice touches, ie, mushy peas (I love them but appreciate, not for everyone) served in a separate ramekin. I ordered the meals and two pints (lager and bitter) and was...

My colleagues and I sometimes pop in here for a cheap lunch if we don't have much time. The service is good and the food is quick to be served.

Went to pulse today with some friends. 3 adults and 5 children in total. The food was cheap and but tasty. Excellent value for money, especially the children's meal deal. However, what stood out the most was the service! It was second to none! The staff were lovely. Not only were they friendly and polite, they were fantastic with the... More

Had a mixed grill , food was tasteless and to get things worse founded a piece of metal on my steak that got stuck on my gum. Worst meal ever. Amazing place to go on a night out but never going back there for food again.

Due to the cut-price drink war that Chuchill Way bars are involved in, Pulse mostly contains noisy groups, often with many children. These only disappear (if you are lucky) by about 8pm and it then reverts to what it is supposed to be - a gay bar. The staff are often more interested in themselves than the punters and the... More

Great bar & club popular with many but mainly a gay venue, however as the nights are getting warmer the club allows body artists in to paint the customers, the paint can leave a mess and seriously stain clothing so either avoid the body painting or don't wear expensive clothing as I don't think Pulse is going to pay cleaning...
