Amazing restaurant

Buzzing bar with relaxing atmospheric restaurant on first floor. We had lamb shanks which were delicious with a choice of sauces and a good selections of perfectly cooked vegetables. Excellent sweets and good wine. Even games on the shelves for the grandchildren. Will definitely come again !

We chose to eat here because it was just a block from the hotel and while the meal was okay, it wasn't really special. We had a pork taco and chicken burger and chips - all fine but the chips were definitely the standout. Staff were as hip as they were helpful and the drinks selection was great - just... More

Staff in no rush to take our order, requested twice for them to take our order. We waited for 1.75 hrs to get our meal and when I complained, I was told that we should have ordered quicker. Food very average and one steak overcooked. Waiting staff made no effort to put anything right. Won't be going back.

We came to Frederic's with a group of 11 people, they accommodated the extra 2 as we had booked 9. While service was a bit slow it was definitely worth the wait as the food was excellent. A good selection on the menu for all tastes. The meals were certainly filling, and they allowed a couple of our group to... More

The service was very good, but the food (Pork Belly in this instance) was very average! There was little meat on the Belly and our side dishes were quite plain and lacked any flavour. Also for a quiet night it did take a while for our dinner to arrive.

We popped into Frederic's intending just to have a quick pint while we decided where to go for dinner. Already impressed by the friendly bar staff we watched other diners' food arriving and thought "yum." So glad we decided to stay there for dinner. My partner's fish and chips was pronounced delicious and my fish taco was similarly good. We'd... More

The outdoor seating area is lovely on a sunny day, pity about the smoker! The food was ok, but definitely pub food.

This place was recommended to us by a number of people. I went with a friend for dinner - we instantly loved the atmosphere and building. Our drinks were served promptly which was great. Calamari entree was ordered to share - which was ok. I ordered the ribeye with broccoli, mashed potato and garlic butter. Unfortunately when it arrived, they... More

Friendly staff, good beer selection - and amazing burgers. We can highly recommend the pulled pork burger especially. All at very reasonable prices.
