Really good!

I was staying in a hotel around the corner and ate and drank here with my husband and friends several times - morning breakfast, drinks on the terrace and dinner. Great vibe, great, friendly service, good food and fantastic coffee. Good happy hour venue. Alex, the manager has a knack of making one... read more

This is the second time we have been to Slate for bfast. They are slow!!! They appear to be understaffed. This compares to their quality service and food over lunch!! Hopefully they will address this and get back to normal high standards.

Great atmosphere... Welcoming and personal touch from the staff. Decent food and great happy hour pricing. We visit here weekly and have nothing bad to say

Needs more than one slow backpacker who doesn't know the difference between a pot and a pint behind the bar.

On the + side: Waiters and staff are wonderful. Service is very fast and the food is delicious. It is perfect for a dinner with friends, family or even couples. On the - side: It can get crowded at lunch time during the week and the rooftop is only open for dinner.

We stopped in here late at night for dessert. The presentation was amazing. We had the sticky date pudding and the poached pears. Both came with a crumb of toffee and nuts and were served on pieces of slate.

I stumbled on this place as they had a sign out the front proclaiming cheap breakfast and being of Scottish background I couldn't resist the prospect of a cheap meal. The prices were indeed cheap, but the food, coffee and service were superb. I an here now for my fourth breakfast and I was ushered in by Alex, straight to... More

Ate again today and had a lovely Salmon main course, Service was very attentive and quick which Ive appreciated a number of times as we're usually looking for an in and out lunch break. The Salmon was well cooked, we were offered cracked pepper and water and bread requests were all easily dealt with. Overall a little noisy, perhaps a... More
