Dear Geoff W, Thank you for a great review ! I totally agree with your comments about trip advisor, in a strange place trip advisor is pretty accurate at helping you choose where to eat and stay, I also use it when I visit unfamiliar places and has never let me down either. We celebrate our 9th birthday next month... More

We had been let down by another restaurant not bothering to take our booking and wandered into Yoyo by mistake. How delightful the experience was! Obviously we hadn't booked, but they were able to accommodate us after a very short wait. The bar & waiting staff were happy and polite. The food was absolutely lovely and we will definately be...

Dear 397 Maurice D, So pleased you have had an enjoyable experience at Yo Yo's. With reference to the mix up with draught versus bottles, we are between drinks menus and we are making manual alteration to the menu, and you are quite right we should have included the black sheep under bottles, but in a weeks time we will...

I chose this as a place to go for a first date, and I was quite surprised that I was addressed by name (Though that might be because we were probably two of very few Asian people at the restaurant, at that time) We got there maybe 5 minutes after I booked for, because we walked around for a bit...

This place is genuinely brilliant. Down a side street with plenty of parking. Warm and cosy inside, the service from start to finish was excellent. I'm not from the area but my customers are, although they haven't been before even they said they'd come again. The food was delicious, atmosphere unintruding, and I don't think it's too pricey. Good portion... More

Decor and atmosphere was also chilled and relaxing. Food was lovely. We opted for the beef Chow mein and asked for it to be made extra spicy. When the food arrived, my husband felt his food wasn't...
