“Good Value”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

I went here for a friends birthday. Seemed very complicated to book a table, I called to be advised only the manager could authorise the booking and I would get a call back, I never got a call back and after calling another two times finally was able to book a table. After all the fuss about booking a table I had to laugh when a member of staff seated another party at our table and then had to go and tell them they had to move. Food was okay and good value but as a party of eight we all ate at different times, I had finished mine by the time the last pizza came.

“What a dump”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

We went here for some food and I dont know why we bothered. The previous reputation of BRB led us to believe the food would be great but the whole experience was a let down. The first thing being that the whole place was absolutley freezing, 2 tables next to us put their coats on and after a while of trying to put it off we had to put our coats on to. There was no atmosphere whatsoever.
The service was very poor, staff dressed in their own clothes which is fine when you get it right but they seemed to think they were at home and didnt seem in the least bit interested in their customers. We waited 45 minutes for 2 pizzas with only 3 other tables in on a quiet friday afternoon. We asked for some sauces which were bever brought to the table. When the pizzas did arrive the toppings were barely anywhere to be seen, they were 241 but that shouldnt have made a difference. The salad we had was nice but fairly difficult to get wrong!
The whole thing just seemed a bit of a joke and I think the most frustrating thing was how complacent the staff/managers were, they did not seem to care in the slightest about anyone in the building. Definitely would not recommend.

“Quality new bar.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012 via mobile

Cracking new bar in Sheffield. The food is cheap and reasonable and the staff are very friendly. Well worth a visit.
