Friendly attentive staff, nice setting and good reasonably priced food, was very impressed with the beef brisket and cornbread main I got, as well as the super light and delicious Baked Alaska and the lovely drinks (including a creamy and perfectly tasty gingerbread milkshake). Would highly recommend.

Went for cocktails and food. 4 happy hour cocktails, 2 starters and 2 mains cost £45 which is pretty good. The waiter was really chatty about his work which some people would hate but we thought he was really nice, I like having waiters with personalities, not robots! Food was nice, bit too much of it as we would've liked... More

Grinch has changed quite a lot since I last went a couple of years ago. Admittedly I prefer the way it was before as it had much more of an identity. Saying that the food is still of a good quality, fresh and very tasty. I think it's reasonably priced and great for a mid-week treat. The pizzas are to... More

I received an email from my best friend earlier on , telling me she wanted to grab a snack tonight after work, I met her in town and we headed to that restaurant hidden in a back street, very nice decor inside and great service. Friendly staff, helpful and quite funny. The big let down is the food, my burger... More

Went in on my own for a quick bite as waiting for hair appointment. Lovely staff who manage to be attentive without harassing, reasonably priced, generously portioned food. Will be going back!

Loved this place when it was Grinch and this was first time since taken over by Mud Crab so I wasn't sure what to expect. Booked a table for a few work colleagues and have to say I enjoyed the food, it was excellent. The cocktails were also excellent and the service was good. Will definately go again.

I went with three friends this evening and apart from the portions being minute when my main course was served the risotto was cooked with parmesan. There was no mention of cheese being included in the ingredients and thankfully it was strong enough for me to taste as I have a cheese allergy. The waiter, who was fantastic, checked the... More

We were regulars at Grinch, now Mud Crab but our last visit was not good however several months have passed and we decided to give it another try. We visited on a Friday lunchtime, previously we would have struggled to get a table but this time it was almost empty, we should have known what a bad sign that was.... More
