How delightful to find a menu full of tempting options, followed by two dishes that were as good as they sounded! I had the polenta cake with lentils, my husband had the aubergine 'steak' - both were delicious, with just the right seasoning and extras...More

We were regulars at Pulse which was almost always excellent, very sad to hear it had closed... A new cafe/restaurant has now opened in the same location but under new management/owners. We have been there recently in its first week after opening (in November 2013)...More

Food is thought out, even for a meat eater the food and environment is refreshing. Friendly staff. Not buggy friendly, so take a sling! Gluten free food too! <3

Well thought out menu that is not over ambitious but is excellent with what it offers. Good sized portions. Very tasty and varied food and friendly staff. My wife, who is not vegetarian, was very impressed. Good value.

This place is great for vegetarians, the portion sizes are very generous and the friendly staff are more than happy to let you take some food home with you. I have been a few times and always chose the enchiladas, delicious!

The food is just delicious and the staff so obliging, but only when wrested off the telephone and from chatting, otherwise it would have been a 5 star. It would be great to have been greeted and not waited until the fourth customer came in...More

Looking for wow factor? Look no further than Pulse Café and Bar, a stylish offering from the team behind St Benedict’s Restaurant and Pinocchio’s. Café by day, bar-cum-restaurant by night, Pulse is an uber-cool hangout popular with young professionals and students alike. The warehouse style interior boasts hulking wood beams, clapperboard ceiling and antique brick walls, all set off by contemporary furniture which could well have come from our favourite high end interiors boutique. When summer comes though, don’t miss the relaxing courtyard, filled with flowers. Using fine organic produce the kitchen conjures up a world of delicious vegetarian food which will leave you wondering if you really need to eat meat ever again.
