My husband and I have been drinking regularly in The Empress for the last 18 months and love the atmosphere and the friendliness of the staff and regulars.
Paul and Tee have recently opened a restaurant section available on Friday and Saturday nights only at present and we wanted to be one of the first to try it. I have to say we were pleasantly surprised - no pub grub to be found here. It was a select menu but everything was lovingly prepared and beautifully presented, plus full of flavour. The food would not have been out of place in a top class restaurant. Yes, it was a bit more pricey than you may expect to pay in a normal bar, but you get what you pay for.
We would highly recommend it for a special evening out, or just for a new dining experience. We will definitely be eating there again.
