As soon as you enter this emporium you get a blast of nostalgia. Old panneling and furniture serves to create a special feeling of comfort and relaxing ambience. The (at times laid back ) staff offer courteous service and the food is of superior variety and quality.The facilities are somewhat antique, but clean, if poorly lit.There are numerous alcoves and...

I think over the last few months or year geoffs has gotten less busy. Mainly because of the untrained, very casual staff wandering around as if they're customers. Geoffs is perfect for a couple of beers before town. But leave it at that! Food drink and atmosphere great, but staff not so much. Too cool for school kind of attitude... More

I had an afternoon with my daughter here Oct 2015, birthday celebrations, we had a lovely time, a bottle of something bubbly more intoxicating than Perrier. Do I remember much other than the great atmosphere we struck, well...... yes, I do a year and a bit on, I still recall the calamari with great pleasure! We must do this again... More

Decided on a Thursday evening to grab some dinner in Geoffs before some drinks. Met my friend here around 6.45pm and it was quite although there was a good few table busy. Took a seat anyway and we got some menus, Geoffs have a wonderful selection to choose from and cater for every taste. So I picked the smoked salmon... More

Popped in for a quick dessert after having been to a movie and ordered the Sticky Toffee Pudding & the Apple pie and ice cream. Both puddings were cold but we were hungry so we are them. I mentioned it to the manager and he said that this was the 2nd time he'd had a complaint in the last few... More

This is my husband's favourite place to hang out. It's dark, noisy and very busy as pubs should be, I suppose. The food is good.

This place has a lovely atmosphere, perfect for casual food with friends with some drinks afterwards. Food is overpriced for how nice it is, but its almost worth it for the coziness inside

We popped in on a Saturday afternoon, it's a great cafe bar with a lovely atmosphere. The staff are friendly and attentive. We had a few drinks and some lunch. There was a good crowd in, some on their own sipping a coffee and some tables with groups. It's a place for everyone. I'd like to go back when we're... More
