I've been eating at Taurus on a regular basis with friends for over seven years now and I've never been disappointed. The service is friendly and efficient and the food is beautifully cooked. The Christmas menu is always adventurous as well as having familiar dishes. The restaurant is temporarily closed for a couple of weeks while work is being carried... More

We booked a table for ten after reading great reviews for an evening meal only to find the menu was reduced for this week (after new year / Xmas) so were initially disappointed, but the staff were apologetic and explained why etc. After offering us happy hour drinks (and a free shot) they even recommended other places for our party...

We booked a table for dinner for a group of 9 of us on a friend's stag. On arriving, we were told they only had a reduced menu on due to it being just after Christmas/New Year. Doesn't sound much like a 5 star experience yet, does it? But what happened next made all the difference. On telling them we... More

Have never had a bad meal here and once again they came up trumps. A pared back New Year menu was offered but came to The same exacting standards as always. Parmesan Chicken sandwich was to die for, absolutely beautiful. The staff were as helpful and attentive as always. Thank you Taurus Bar! I'd recommend for everyone to try this... More

Whilst I love this bar and find the food is always excellent I do find the drinks hit and miss. We often sit choosing our cocktails from the list then going to bar to be told, we don't have the ingredients for half of the drinks (especially fruit). I wish I could say this was a one off but it's... More

Went with a large group for a Christmas meal, with food pre-ordered. The service was good and value for money was not too bad, but was not impressed with the food. One person had "pie of the day", which actually had no pie crust and appeared to be some kind of re-heated curry with potato on top. Some dishes were... More

Sorry you didnt enjoy your food.The pie was in fact a new idea which all others who had it, seemed to enjoy. Constructive criticism always welcome though. Feedback from your table was good, as far as we were aware on the night.Thanks again. More

I might be a bit Buyist on this one to be fair... The reason is that the staff is really really really nice and outgoing. I never had to ask for anything and I always get smiles and politeness and they are really outgoing. The food is just average tho, it use to be one of my favourite place to... More
