I stopped here after work one Sunday and had an excellent Sunday Lunch. I had olives and bread to start with, the black olives were so spicy they blew my head off - perhaps they should be accompanied by a health warning. My main course was a large piece of Pork Belly, perfectly cooked, it was accompanied by delicious red... More

Me and my partner stopped off here on Saturday for a bite to eat on our way into town, the place seemed buzzing. We were not disappointed. The food was fantastic, I had the veggie burger and my partner had the salmon salad, the portions were just right and I even sneaked in a cheeky pudding. The staff were lovely,... More

Went for drinks as we were walking past because there was seating outside in the sun but I was absolutely astonished with how rude the guy at the bar was, not only to me and a number of friends but I overheard him talk to staff appallingly. Shame as it could have been such a nice atmosphere and he totally... More

The set meal was great. A fairly wide selection of options at a reasonable price especially in comparison to the normal menu which is a little pricey. Very friendly and kind waitress. Very trendy and nice views onto Western Road.

Talk about miserable - actually got an eye roll when we asked for mayo and ketchup. This is the second time my girlfriend and I have been here and we won't be going back. Both times we've been there the service has been awful, which is funny as they actually use it as a selling point on their outside advertising.... More

I have always wanted to eat here as heard good reviews. We visited for lunch on a weekday and the restaurant was empty. We had the set menu which was nice but the service was slow as there wasn't many staff. The server was very polite and I would return to see if better next time. I have to agree... More

The food was ok although my maple syrup was limited. I'm sure more could have been squirted onto my plate. The pink haired waitress was lovely, polite and attractive. However, the low point was being told we had to go back and sit down if we wanted to pay. Then having to wait to pay. A shame.

I've wanted to come her for a long time as I'd heard good reviews and it looks lovely from the outside. However I was very disappointed. We went for breakfast on a Sunday morning and although the food was really good we felt that the cleanliness lacked. The restaurant is big and spacious, with little nooks and crannies that promises... More

I was so disappointed with this restaurant. We were greeted by an offhand waiter who said he needed to check with his manager before seating us because it was busy (it wasn't busy at all)- and then, inexplicably, he changed his mind and told us we could sit down. The service was ridiculously slow- it took ages for someone to... More

I really loved my dinner at hove kitchen. The menu is small but the burger I chose (blue cheese) was just flipping fantastic! Their shoestring fries were sooo good! There was a great jazz band playing and the place was really busy which created a great Friday night atmosphere. Service was good- attentive but not pushy. I highly recommend this... More
