Really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere of buskers. Duck, Caesar and tomato salads all fresh, tasty and good portions at £5-6. Mains; crab linguine, Thai curry all tasty at £13. Wine list small but reasonable value. Lots of cocktail options which were very good. Good option for relaxed, informal dining with friends. £22 a head for 2 courses and drinks, felt... More

This place was recommended to us by a friend and we can completely appreciate why. What a lovely meal. The staff were lovely - the restaurant itself is really stylish and the food was excellent. The meal was absolutely lovely, homemade soup of the day, white onion and broccoli was wonderful. The star of the show without question was the... More

We walked in without a reservation, and were immediately seated by a member of staff at a table at the rear of the resteraunt opposite the serving hatch. After taking our drink order the waitress apologised that the fish order had not been delivered so all the fish items on the menu were off. Luckily this led us to order... More

Cocktails excellent, best seafood chowder I've ever had, served with fresh Wheaton muffins, onion soup exceptional too! Crab and lemon linguine fab and husbands salted chilli chicken burger fab too! No chance of managing a dessert as the portions very generous! So reasonably priced! Will definitely frequent this excellent venue with great staff and a very farfetched Jim!

My family and I came over from Liverpool and met up with some friends. Not booking a place meant it was hard to find somewhere to accommodate 10, until finding buskers. We were pleasantly surprised when seeing the menu, which was small yet diverse. I had the BBQ chicken wings and the crab linguine, both of which tastes fantastic. Being... More

I met a friend for lunch & we were not disappointed. The food was excellent but we had to wait a while. The interior is very nice & it is a great location on University Road

I LOVED Beatrice Kennedys but now that it's gone, Buskers is like it's lively younger brother. A lot trendier, and s totally different feel. I liked the decor inside. The bar has moved from the very back to the front room, on one side. Lovely modern white tiling. Love the bare bulb industrial style lighting. Love the new wooden booth... More
