I enjoyed viewing some of the medley of photographs, prints, pictures and goatskins on the walls whilst waiting for the slow service at the Art House. I hope the staff are OK because when we went back for cocktails a whole pineapple went flying. Fish and chips came in a nostalgia-inducing pretend piece of newspaper. I much preferred this as...

The food here is fantastic but it man vs food portions so make sure you haven't eaten for a while. It's such a shame about the strange layout, it looks closed at first but you need to go upstairs, the ground floor would make a great bar waiting area. The waitresses are lovely but I have never known such a... More

Varying reviews made us curious and the upstairs/downstairs layout was even more curious. We arrived and it took a while for the staff to find the booking we made earlier and even more time to offer drinks. The dining room was covered with Andy Warhol type prints, if you like them, and after we were seated the service started to... More

It was our first time here and really enjoyed it. Staff very polite and friendly, good service and worth the waiting time for food. I had the classic burger which was absolutely delicious, served with cheese, bacon, salad and a side of chips with coleslaw. The presentation of the meal was really good, and the restaurant clean and tidy. Everyone... More

Great for cocktails, especially during happy hour 5-6pm, but don't go if you're thirsty you will have to wait . . . for everything. Poorly organised front of house staff. Especially obvious if you are unfortunate enough to be put in the corridor next to the bar and door. There is loads of unused space downstairs that would be better... More

We ate at the Art House on 28th May and had a lovely evening. The only criticism i have is that its difficult finding the actual restaurant - so ask to be shown it! No matter; we sat in the bar area and after a game of Boggle, had a really good meal. I had a delicious sea bass with... More
