“Lovely birthday meal!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013 via mobile

Visited on a Saturday night as part of a group for a birthday. Staff were friendly & attentive, Manager (I presume) kept visiting the table to ensure we were all ok & enjoying the meal, had enough drinks etc.
Food was delicious - various meat platters, fresh breads, nachos, all tasty & well presented. Only downer was the pate - dry & tasteless. But this was the only thing I could fault.
Reasonably priced wine, spirits & soft drinks.
Would definitely visit again.

“Great food, excellent value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

We went as a large group. The food was ordered and soon enough arrived to the table. I had the Black Pudding and Chorizo Salad and the Cafe 85 burger both of which were fantastic. The serving staff were very helpful.

“Good value, nice food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013 via mobile

I had the pea and ham risotto starter which came with a Parmesan crisp, and the pan fried Salmon as my main. The risotto was beautifully cooked and full of flavour, and the salmon was cooked to perfection with a crispy skin. I really enjoyed my meal, and found the atmosphere and decor very pleasing. I was driving so didn't get to sample the wines, but there seemed to be a reasonable selection. I would recommend (if you can find anywhere to park!).
