Valentine's day date

I went to Ziff's tonight with my husband for a valentine's date. The last time I went to Ziff's was about 6 years ago and the risotto I had back then put me off. I felt it was time to give it another go tonight and I'm pleased I did as it was excellent. The fillet steak was beautiful. Cooked... read more

A group of friends went to Ziff's for dinner and from start to finish it was a great experience. We used the courtesy coach to pick us up so we could have an extra drink. Service was very nice and efficient. My meal, the chicken breast was superb and so was my friends meals. Everybody was very impressed. Those who... More

Was ready for dinner, very busy place but we had a good seat in the bar area. Garlic bread starter was good, well done and medium rare steaks presented perfectly. We really enjoyed our evening at Ziff's and will plan to go back. The staff were pleasant and the restaurant continued to be busy.

We went for lunch, we had their light meals and lunch mains. I had the chicken burger with bacon and fries. I was impressed as it was tasty with fresh ingredients. My mother had battered blue cod with fries which she loved. My sister had the light meal of portibello mushroom which she also enjoyed. We finished off with coffee.... More

Had the garlic prawn crock pot as a starter and was really impressed. Very tasty! I then had the beef burger for a main and was very disappointed. The chips were average and the beef patty tasted like something out of the freezer at the supermarket. I left feeling let down as I had the beef burger previously and it... More

Ziffs always delivers the best meals. Last visit I had the tomato soup, very tasty and filling. Dessert was also first class and the coffee is always excellent. Staff are always friendly and welcoming. Top marks Ziffs team.

Staff were straight up to us and we were seated straight away. It will appeal to all age groups . The meal it self was good and... More

Had lunch at Ziffs with two friends who always have their famous Chicken Salad! They love it! I had heard the Oyster Soup was outstanding, as always I could not decide, menu indecision! The waitress advised that a gentleman rated it 10-10 which persuaded me to try it... Well it is hard to describe just how delightful the Oyster Soup... More

The mains were pretty good, decent sized but unfortunately the desserts were a bit of a let down.My mum and I both ordered the crumble and were very disappointed,... More
