I took a trip to 1885 with my family and partner for my birthday in May. We ordered the meat platter which is just divine! It's a sharer for two but there is SO MUCH FOOD and it's all delicious! This place comes highly recommended.

First of all I would like to say the foods is not average, it is good but it wouldn't let me put 3.5 stars. Annoyingly it could of been so much better but for some unforgivable mistakes by the Chef. Positives were that the drinks...More
