“Excellent Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

We had a living social voucher for BarLuga (2 course meal for 2) and although I was disappointed I couldn’t get booked up for the dates I wanted originally we opted to go on Sunday 25th August 2013. We booked the table in the upstairs area out of the way of the hustle and bustle of the main bar. On arrival we were shown to our table and the staff were very friendly and attended to our needs without being over the top.

We opted for starters of Scotch Egg & Tempura Prawns & mains of Bar Luga Burger and the Pork Medallions. The food was absolutely beautiful and the portion sizes very generous. Our meal was complimented by a glass of Prosecco (part of the voucher deal) so overall very impressed and no complaints about anything. I asked for some bread to go with our starters and we were provided with this at no charge (very unusual).

This is the first time I have had food here as I have always thought it was slightly on the expensive side but now I have been I wouldn’t hesitate to go back. Well worth the money although I wouldn’t necessarily want to sit in the main bar area to eat.

“A typical pub”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2013 via mobile

Other than the high end prices it is just a fancy pub
nothing special that would separate this place from your local.
The decor is good but still it is just a bar that serves food.And not the best quality pub food either.

“Excellent fish dishes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2013

Barluga is a regular favourite of mine. Always busy and bustling atmosphere.Id always choose mezzanine area upstairs to eat as it's more out of the way. I recently had sea bass with samphire and an Italian salsa . Absolutely delicious and if you're after a dessert the lemon posset was to die for.
