“Warm and inviting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2014

A late review, as we visited “Same Same” on a very wet Friday evening in January. Whilst it was lashing a gale outside, the atmosphere inside the packed single room of the restaurant was warm and inviting. Being greedy we shared three tapas starters between the two of us before moving onto a mains each. All washed down with a respectable house red. The service was very good and the slight mix-up with the starters was handled well and gave us a handy introduction to the people on the next table. Highlights for me were the Sole Goujons, the Scotch Duck egg in Black Pudding and of course the Burger. A home-made bap would have made the latter brilliant, but that’s just being picky. The Merguez sausage was also good but would have preferred more of… The only weakness in what was a great experience was that my wife’s pork collar was somewhat over cooked and bland. Overall good value for money, great service - would recommend and will certainly visit again.

“Fantastic place for a coffee and cake”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2014

This place was a real find, generous cake portions and yummy coffee. I would definitely return. Its an interesting area hidden away so do look hard.

A great big fried breakfast! A bustling and cosy cafe with everything I wanted in a fry up! Had this breakfast close to midday and it kept me going until dinner at 7pm!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2014 via mobile

Just popped in the other day for lunch. Only had a sandwich and coffee but really tasty and filling,chicken sweetcorn,mayo served in a fresh rustic roll together with a small dressed side salad and potato wedges. Ideal for quick bite. Interesting looking Tapas menu as well!

“A good find - location is very good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2014

Really enjoyed this meal - great tapas style food.
We shared 5 dishes between the 2 of us and had a bottle of wine - came to £40.
Lovely relaxed atmosphere and great little place.
Only 4 stars, as felt some of the dishes could have done with more meat! Service was very good, the people that work here do a good job and seem as though they like working here.
I would come back.
