Really felt let down by what appeared to be bustling and popular place. The staff were rushed and the lay out of the place means catching their eye is difficult. Our food was mediocre and seemed distinctly pre-prepared or bought in. The pizza was one of the worst I've ever had in a restaurant, with bouncy cheese and slimy sauce - our son refused it! It seems it is a hit and miss kind of place food-wise, but having lived in London for 13 years, you wouldn't get away with this standard there with the level of competition around. I also think it's distinctly overpriced. There are a few others on Hannover Street - I'd go for one of those before taking the risk here, especially if it's a treat.

Had a good lunch, nice pub style and good music in background.

Linguini with king prawns & chicken burger, home made chips.

Both dishes were very nice and good portions.

Staff friendly & attentive.

Had a meal at The Hub with a friend last night and was very happy with the whole package!
I would recommend making a reservation as it was packed but we were squeezed in.
The service was charming, very professional but laid back.
The food was fabulous, my fillet steak with all the trimmings was to die for. We had mains, pudding and cheese and drinks for £30 a head. Bloomin' bargain and I WILL be back last time we are in town.
What a fabulous business you have, congratulations!

Tried the Hub on a recommendation on our recent visit to Liverpool. The place was busy for a Wednesday evening. As we hadn't booked a table we were advised of a 15 minute wait and sat at the bar with our drinks. The menu is varied and has something to suit everyone. I opted for the Thai Green Curry and my partner the Caesar Salad. The curry was ok and had plenty of chicken although the rice was on the dry side. The Caesar salad was crisp again with plenty of chicken but lacked anchovies. Service was friendly and attentive. Nice atmosphere and mix of people. Overall the Hub food is nothing spectacular on the food front but made up for it with the service and buzzy atmosphere.

Really average chicken burger. Swinging kebab looked good but came with two thin strips of rock gard 'flat bread'. 'Stone baked' pizza was the biggest let down. Could have come from my freezer. Not brilliant all round.
