Quick bite before the gig!

This place is great! Friendly atmosphere, great staff and service and the food was great value and top notch. Try the house special steak, you won't be disappointed. Nice location, tucked away from Cross Street and just a nice place to drop into for a drink, snack and a chat. Will become a... read more

We used to visit Grinch a lot back in the day but have not been for several years. We decided to give it a go for some lunch. It was 2pm and there were only 2 other tables occupied. On looking around, we were unsure wether the restaurant was undergoing some refurbishment as there were lots of cables hanging down... More

Having been coming to this area over the last few years and to the grinch previously we have to say since its last rebrand it's been really impressive. Great service by the guys here and the quality of the food is excellent and really great value. We will be back if this is the standard !! Thanks guys

Had one of the most delicious plates of food i've eaten in a long time, Grilled Sea Bass (with very crispy skin) on chorizo and saffron risotto. Really good service and a brilliant price, 2 meals and 4 drinks for less than £40

Booked a table last minute on Friday night & it was a great little spot. The service was very quick with food and drinks. Burger was one of the tastiest I've ever eaten. The fries aren't the best standard but that's a company choice rather than how they were cooked. Overall, I would visit again.

Been to the grinch a few times, always leave happy. Visited the grinch on Saturday with a party of 12, service was friendly and attentive (but not too attentive which can be annoying) great value for money, lovely food and nice drinks. We all had a fab time.

Booked after reading Tripadvisor reviews! The food was good and the atmosphere was perfect for our family night out. The menu wasn't huge, but had a good selection of food. We had steak & frites and pizzas which were all good. If your looking for some pre - theatre food, this would be a good choice. My only small criticism... More
