Came to the 1885 with a group of four and thought we would see if we could eat in the restaurant on a busy Saturday night, even though we hadn't booked. We walked in to a full and buzzing restaurant and we're told there was unfortunately no tables available however we would be able to eat in the pub, which... More

It only few minutes away from my house but I've only been here for drinks. It's slightly expensive for drinks but worth calling in to see what it's like. Quite a lot of locals go in.

Our first visit here was with friends and there were 6 of us, we hadn't booked as we were told we didn't need to. We waited a long time for our food and the waitress wasn't very sociable, we asked for some more drinks to be brought to our table and were told that we had to get our own... More

This is the second time that we have seen Elvis at this restaurant. This is one of the best nights entertainment that we have see. "Elvis" worked very hard doing three slots with short breaks to allow us to eat our food. He is amazing with a fantastic voice. The food was up to 1885's usual high standard served by... More

Visited on 22/08/14 with a family group of 6. Excellent service, very pleasant restaurant and ambience. It was meant to be a treat from me for my family. My family enjoyed the parma ham and main course lamb and fish. However I drew the short straw with my scallops starter and pork belly main course from the grill. 3 rather... More

In early July we unfortunately experienced a poor meal at 1885. I few days later the owner Matthew rang to apologise and invited us back for a steak and bottle of wine on the house. We took up Matthews generous offer and enjoyed a memorable meal last night in the restaurant. The rib eye steaks were cooked to perfection and... More

Recently visited the 1885 restaurant for a friends get together. We each chose the "7 course taster menu" which was reasonably priced at £60 for two people. We then upgraded a further £25 each so that the menu included a variety of drinks which complimented the meal through out. The welcome was warm and inviting with attentive staff at the... More

Fab food - it can't be faulted. Moody staff need to be addressed. Food AND service are key. Arguments behind the bar don't help the ambiance for the customer
