A lot of effort put into the ambiance and service

Stopped off for Saturday lunch. A strange place in the middle of an old fashioned department store. It was orignally a dance hall and they have run with that theme with Art Deco and jazz music.

We went to start off the day to celebrate my wife's 60th Birthday on Thursday and it was superb. The staff were very attentive and the food was not only plentiful but also excellent quality. Would highly recommend the experience and the location. We will be going again.

Went here on the back of a friend to try the Bourgogne so after being here before for breakfast and knowing the standard was happy to go and try it out, it was amazing meat melted in the mouth and very generous portions especially considering the small price tag managed to squeeze in dessert and again both the creme brûlée...

I bought a voucher for my elderly parents to have lunch at the brasserie. They have been today and really enjoyed the meal however the down side is that there is no lift available to the restaurant so my Dad found it difficult using the stairs. I'm disappointed that this slightly marred their visit.

Excellent ingredients, perfectly cooked, very well presented. Service just right. I always have the same thing here, the full English, though people I have been with tell me that the rest of the menu is as good. Tea and Coffee a little weak for my taste, (you want builders strength with a fryup, even one as posh as this) but... More

A friend and I visited Michael Friths midweek for a champagne breakfast & long overdue catch up. Beautifully presented food which was delicious ( special mention to the banana pancakes !!!) service was very friendly and professional with a nice 'buzzy' atmosphere even midweek. We are already planning our next trip and would highly recommend. Thank you for a lovely... More
