Great ambience & the food was delicious at a great price. We are with a 12 year old & a 26 year old plus vegetarian & everyone was happy- you cant say that about many restaurants. Highly recommended.

Atmosphere is good, lively without being too noisy. Good food (I had the chicken breast & cheesy mash_ and a choice of beers. Good internal decor. I would return

We only popped in for drinks one night so can’t comment on the food. The place has a very quirky decor with recycled cymbals, pluming items repurposed in the decor, very quirky. The place itself is very pleasant with a friendly and efficient staff.

Very good location. The food i took was very good, it was an appetizer, eggplant cream. It arrived fast, although i have to mention that there was just a couple of people un the restaurant. Waiter was nice. All in all good experience.

My wine tasted like stale apple juice, they forgot to put in our apps, but it was a great chicken sandwich. Good luck here.

Stopped in here to have a beer while it was raining at lunch time. Beer is great, really good price! Staff were completely unfriendly and unhelpful with an attitude. As someone who has worked in the service industry for years I wonder - why work...in the industry if you dont like people or serving? I don't like leaving bad reviews but unfortunately the staff really let the place down.More

After a busy day sightseeing we called in for a spot of food. We always like to eat at busy restaurants as see this as a recommendation by the locals. Well the Zappa is certainly busy! We managed to find a table in the square...& waited for the staff to come to see us to take our order. Unfortunately, we got missed in the crowd & waited longer than expected to be served but the food and atmosphere more than made up for the delay. 2 large burgers arrived with fries in reasonable time and the food was piping hot. We chose 2 large Hungarian sour cherry beers that soon became 4 as its delicious & went down a treat. The only downside & not fault of the restaurant, is that everyone smokes & we did find this a little off putting when eating.More
