It had been many years since last visiting this restaurant, it was previously a different name. Anyway, my wife and I plus 4 friends visited Saffy's and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The atmosphere on a Wednesday evening was very good, it was very busy. The food was excellent, with a very varied menu. As with everywhere else the price of... More

Easily the best meal of our week and served by helpful friendly staff. I had chicken nachos and sticky Mexican chicken with saffron rice, both spot on. The Mexican chicken was served with a veg and chorizo medley which was cooked perfectly. The missus had tomato and red pepper soup followed by Cajun spiced salmon and zingy cous cous salad... More

We've been going to Saffy's since it opened and we always enjoy our visits there. The menu has a varied choice and everything is freshly prepared. The house salads are delicious. It has a relaxed atmosphere so no need to get all dressed up. Very reasonable prices and chef/owner is always in charge in the kitchen.

Had a family meal to celebrate my niece passing her exams & Saffys came highly recommended. Food wise it could not be faulted & the Mexican grilled chicken was as nice as anything I've tasted. Good prices in a relaxed & informal setting & more about dressing casual than getting dressed up for a night out to Saffys. The one... More

Went to Saffy's Bar & Brasserie as a party of 6 for a birthday meal. We heard that the place was busy and therefore booked before. We had a large table at the back of the restaurant away from the door. Staff were attentive and very professional. We all had a lovely evening, the food was presented well and tasted... More
