“Decent Brekkie”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2014

I'm surprised by some of the negative reviews on here, a group of 5 of us went for the Ulster Fry breakfast and were all very pleased. The breakfast menu is very clear on the quantities involved, so those expecting a bigger quantity, should probably have ordered one of the larger breakfasts - ours were huge and there was still another size up! Lovely to get unlimited tea or coffee rather than a poky little cup too. Friendly service.

“A unique experience but not a good one sadly”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2014 via mobile

Having travelled a lot and experienced restaurants in many places, The Other Place takes the "biscuit" in my view.

With the exception of fairly remote places or where one might expect tap water to be unsafe I have seldom found it difficult to get a glass of tap water in a restaurant. However The Other Place has a policy of not serving tap water.

The only option is to buy a branded bottle I never heard of or do without.

A unique experience indeed!

“very average”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2014

Wanted a cheap quick dinner and passed by The Other Place. Staff was friendly enough allthough a bit foo informal. I had a veggie stirfry which was ok, but nothing to write home about. My partner had a veggie burger which was far from being exceptional. No tap water, just bottled. The place was quite cold. It wasn't expensive but I would recommend Maggie Mays instead for a cheap dinner: cosier and better food!

“GOOD VALUE .”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2014

Nipped in in a hurry and choose the ''Early bird'' menu 2 courses for £10 , the food was nicely presented ,served at the correct temperature and reasonably sized portions. The environment was clean and cheery. The staff although friendly paid little attention to the customers once the order was placed instead chatting away to each other ,myself and other tables while I was there both had to ask for their attention which should have been anticipated especially as they were not busy............
Note to chef not a good idea to serve hot food on salad............goes limp and wilted.
