What a find! I was looking for somewhere to eat as part of a birthday celebration (we were off to a gig at the Arena afterwards) and chose it because of its ethos of only using locally and nationally sourced ingredients, it's seasonal menus and because it's independently owned. We were not disappointed. Superb food that was beautifully cooked and... More

Only people in there, slow service, no checkbacks, raw scallops, over cooked halebut, £150 bill and not worth it! Supposed to be a birthday treat for mum, wont be going back!!

Creative and interesting food at NQR was delicious. We went for Sunday Brunch and really enjoyed it. Great service too. Only negative was tables too close together.

.. and pretty busy compared to other places we walked past. Having said this, we did not wait for service which was efficient throughout. Our starters of salmon & feta pastries were excellent. The rib eyes for mains were just superb. Beautifully cooked and we did like the server explaining that if we had the steak rare then the fat... More

Starving after walking through city centre we have been seated by gentle waiter. You can choose you drink from various beers and wines. We got classic option - traditional fish & chips. Service was fast, everything went right way. Really recommend for dinner.

Had Sunday lunch at the popular TNQ, reasonably priced at 2 courses for £13.95. 3 courses for £16.95. We only had two courses, it was enough to be honest, we were very full. Drinks were reasonable, service was very good and the break between courses was just right. Of course they serve other things too be as it was Sunday... More

Everywhere can have an off day so I'll give it a go again but was not the same vibe & friendliness as previously. If you are having... More
