What a great place for Sunday lunch! There was 5 of us for lunch including 2 kids and we all really loved everything about this place. The service was great and the food was even better than we hoped it would be! Sunday roast was cooked to perfection and the fish and chips was really good too. Very reasonable considering... More

We didn't have a reservation and came across the restaurant by accident. We had a bit of a wait but it was worth it. Lovely atmosphere , best calamari starter I've had, followed by the best chicken dish. Everything down the the gravy was perfectly cooked. My friend had the Sunday roast beef and again everything was cooked to perfection... More

Fab food, home made soup was v tasty, lovely squid, amazing Ox cheek with crunchy carrots and beautifully cooked and presented hake with ratatouille, all for £10 each. We're very happy with our new local, next time we can bring the dog too!!

A few weeks ago I walked past The Ox with some friends and saw someone with a massive, delicious-looking roast dinner sitting in the window. I actually stopped in my tracks, and the diner smiled, pointed to the food and gave a massive two thumbs up. We decided to try it for ourselves the following week... the guy who gave... More

I met some old school friends here for a good catch up so really it wouldn't have mattered where we were, we were always going to have a good time! I have to say though the food was lovely. I had the haddock which melted in my mouth, a good size portion too. My friends all had burgers and were... More

We stopped in for some lunch on Saturday afternoon and were very impressed. Top quality food and very nice staff. They have an excellent drinks menu and they are also dog friendly. The ox cheeks I had for lunch is the best dish I've eaten all year. Will definitely be visiting again in the near future.

Despite the initial disappointment when we attended last night to find out that there was no longer any cocktails on the menu (always a staple on a night out to come by for the 2 White Russians offer) we still had a great night. Young Robbie on the bar, is a lovely lad, and provided us with good chat all... More

Was planning to go to Pickles for a Sunday lunch only to find it was not open until 430. Saw The Bellevue and went in there with my girlfriend. Food was excellent and very cheap, credit to the chef

Tucked away at the bottom of Broughton Street and the corner of London Street is the recently renovated Bellevue bar. The beer selection is not extensive, however adequate having the local Deuchers and West options on draught. The quality of the food was really good. It was all freshly prepared on premises and very well executed. he hand cup chips... More
