“Scrummy food, shame about the staff.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

I recently visited Bitter and Twisted for the first time. We were seated quickly and the menu was brilliant. We all opted for different main meals and no one received a bad dish. The food was perfect and faultless and our waitress (long blonde hair) was very polite.
I will most certainly return soon.

“Where the locals go”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

God value food, central location. Sister restaurant to Whistlers almost next door.....which is even better i.e. more friendly and food a bit different.

“Bitter and Twisted II. The sequel.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

Okay, second time lucky, and I write as I found it. On a Saturday night the pub was fairly quiet and the service was good. I was possibly diguised by my Movember tash so possibly the manager didn't recognise me from my prior visit a few months back. Obviously the staff suffer when under pressure, but this wasn't such an evening. Eight out of ten. I will be back!

“Bitter and very twisted!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

Popped in for a bite to eat while walking around the town... and shall never go back! We walked in to be confronted with the bar man asking "what can I get you".... Er a table would be a good start, even before the door closed behind us! Ordered a couple of drinks which arrived swiftly, good start. Went downhill from then tho.... This is truely a 'locals' establishment, and they get a far better service! It felt like we had interrupted something, and we were seated towards the toilets as not to get in the way of the locals chatting. Food was ok, overpriced, but ok... £6.50 for a sausage in tiny baguette with a microscopic side salad! Enter at your own risk.

“Excellent service and happy hour cocktails!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

Excellent service from all staff (specific reference to the main manager), food of good quality, cocktails were well balanced (inc not too much ice!) and good value.

Good atmosphere and would definately come back when in the area.
