Was unsure what to expect after reading reviews on here but could not have had a better night.
Superb hospitality, fantastic food and all in gorgeous surroundings!
Will definitely be going back again!

“Very disappointing”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012

We had high expectations, yet there was no atmosphere, hardly any people, and the place was filthy, we left as soon as we could.

“More gravy !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

Had a lovely meal here before going to the town hall to see a comedian. The food was far better than the comedian. Aske dfor extra gravy and chips and was given this at no extra charge, Was a wee bit shocked but in a good way

“Poor poor service and average food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2012

Le pharmacie is a really lovely looking restaurant which promises nice food and high quality service; however it doesn't deliver. Firstly it's not French (despite the name) and has quite a confused menu, some might say a good varied selection though. We waited at the bar for a good 20 minutes before we were acknowledged, however this was when we asked if we could be served...the reply 'I have 3 other checks before you' poor response after waiting for this long...and they just don't care.

Eventually served and seated; the menu was okay, however, the food was average and expensive. Ordered sharing platter which was okay but missing our olives, pointed this out and we were told they had ran out (nothing offered in its place)...why didn't they tell us this as we were ordering? Tomato mozzarella salad (rip off and all leaves). One of our group ordered chicken which came pink I the middle! The steak was really fab; however we ordered chunky chips...French fries arrived! We asked what happened to the chunky chips and were told that they we're no longer serving chunky chips and have stopped cutting potatoes....

Better places to visit where you will get better food and importantly much better service.

“Very Nice Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2012

Popped in after visiting the cinema and there were plenty of tables available which was good as we didn't have a reservation.
We were seated quickly and were asked what we would like to drink as we were given a menu and a wine menu to look through while we waited for the couple of beers we ordered. Just a couple of bottles of peroni - we were asked if we needed glasses but just had the beer from the bottle :-)

We were not offerd the specials which were on individual chalk boards by the cash register. Would have been nice to have it offered to us but we were more than happy with the choice on the main menu

I had the chicken liver bruschetta to start which was lovely and this was followed by Pan seared lemon & herb chicken breast - served with sauted chili & lime sweet potato -yummy!

Lovely decor and friendly service too - will def return :-)
