I had Fresh haddock with home made tartar sauce... 11.95 2 course... More

Came in on a whim... The background music (live)was provided by a group of multi-talented musicians playing a mixture of bluegrass and folk, with vocals provided by any one of the group - magical And then we ordered from the 2-3 course fixed price menu The food, from attentive staff to timely service was outstanding. Meatballs for me to start... More

I've been going to Bacchus for years now and it has never let me down. I usually have the macaroni cheese and chips and it's always super creamy and cheese and the chips are always cooked to perfection. I usually go at lunch time as they do a great lunch time deal, any portion of pasta with chips for £6.50.... More

Lucky that we happened upon this place. Stopped here for dinner. Three of us had caprice salad and the fish and chips. One person had the homemade soup and ravioli. Everything was delicious and they do a super job with the pasta. Had the sticky toffee pudding for dessert and it was to die for! Food and service both excellent.

Went for lunch with friends and took advantage of the 2 courses for £5.95 deal and we were all thoroughly impressed. The calamari was some of the best I've had, and the fajita wrap was brilliant. The service was fantastic and I really couldn't fault anything about our experience.

Popped in to Bacchus Sunday 20th April with husband and other couple. The misfits were playing to a very attentive audience great band and fantastic atmosphere. We also ate and as always food was fab. Definitely will be going along again on a Sunday thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and entertainment.

Went for dinner through groupon voucher. Initial thoughts were it did seem more of a bar than restaurant. Staff were very friendly. I had mussels with white wine sauce for starters and fish and chips for mains. The sauce in the mussels werent great. Seemed more like a thicker sauce for a pasta. Fish and chips were average. Patner had... More

Sorry you didn't enjoy everything more. We do try to let people know that indeed we are a bar and not a restaurant (as explained on our website and trip adviser). As such we are proud of our good quality Bar food . My apologies for this perhaps not being made clear enough when you were purchasing the voucher. Glad... More
