Superb service in providing dietary requirements.

My Wife was attending a meeting and requested food for a specific diet. The staff could not have been more accommodating in providing a delicious meal and snacks. The service generally was excellent, friendly and attentive, nothing was too much trouble. Great atmosphere. Thank you.

Second time we have been. You get to choose from I think they call it the school dinner menu, basically smaller main meals but you can upgrade. It's nice food they have there own ales plus a few others. Then it's up stairs for 3 comedians and a very funny MC. For the price this is a great deal and... More

We went today for a bite to eat. Although we only ordered soup and sandwiches, it took over 45mins for the food to arrive, the soup was mushroom- watery and lukewarm and the cheese sandwiches contained tasteless cheese (definitely not mature cheese, more like mild generic cheese). The chutney was ok but so much of it that the sandwich was... More

We eat regularly here and the food is always really good. The service is friendly and polite despite being busy all of the time. The Borough is stylish and comfortable and the wine very good. Only been disappointing once when having breakfast when the spinach was gritty. But they didn't charge me for it.

We really like it here but be warned when they get too busy they stop serving food in the bar. This has happened to us twice when we've nipped in for a bite to eat.

The surroundings and pretty comfortable and the quality of the food is fair. It's far from cheap though. It has is own micro brewery and serves its own ales which are very nice.

As usual a large group of us dined at The Borough for a birthday celebration and as usual the meal was great. The staff are excellent in that they take the order, explain the specials and serve you in a timely fashion. It's quite a noisy experience and appeals to a mixed crowd of young and mature clients. They also... More
