We we're here with a 40th Birthday celebration. The 2nd floor was reserved with the smoking area near by. Very badly planed, as the doors are left open with the cold and the stink of smoke coming in. The music was dreamy and mellow. Food smelt nice. Two toilets upstairs are bisexual. This didn't work as one lock was broke... More

The food was a lot better than I was expecting seeing as Solas is a bar. The food was fresh, tasty & reasonably priced. Can't complain I'd go back again for another casual meal!

Went to Solas bar after walking past and reading their menu, which seemed enticing at the time - we just wanted a decent beef burger! The burger we received infact tasted like very bad quality Lamb burger (Yes, Lamb)!! Did not taste like beef at all - I just hope this wasnt during the horse-meat scandal! Very dissapointed considering the... More

Salad was horrendous and expensive and took 2 minutes to prepare (always a bad sign). Waitress was grumpy and miserable looking. Felt miserable myself in the place.

About 20 mins later they... More

Have eaten here at lunchtime regularly over the last few years. It used to be well run when Yvonne (I think her name was) was running the floor. Now it's very much hit and miss. Final straw last week when we ordered the blandest of bland specials that were on and when we tried to order a coffee after we... More

Had a bad experience with Solas and won't be going again. Called on a Monday lunch time to make a booking for that evening for Cheese and Wine with a deal voucher. When we arrived at 6 pm, they weren't expecting us as the woman who took the booking made it for Wednesday. To his credit, the man who appeared... More
