We were directed to Societi Brasserie us a special place for our 4th Wedding Anniversary. I already loved their ethos of artisanal and locally sourced seasonal products and I was really wowed when we walked in – the staff were friendly and the place is fabulously slightly rustic French OTT and very convivial. I loved it on sight, especially the very generous servings of excellent “by the glass” sparkling wines and wine. Which means I was even more than normally devastated by the below par food – really stodgy mini cheesy calzones, flavourless French onion soup – o where was my tangy onion broth with generous bubbling melted cheese on crispy going soft croutons? The pork neck was very stringy and tough with which ruined the fabulous creamy sauce it came in, and the steak was so forgettable I can’t remember. Judging by the site and number of dishes going out, I would say the battered hake is the dish to order, but don’t set your heart on the hand cut fries – o too disappointing yet again. My other small gripe was the toilet, it really does say something about a restaurant, and Societi Brasserie’s are not great – very cheaply done and slightly mucky
