“Perfectly passable food, good service, cleanliness questionable”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013 via mobile

I visited here with teammates from work on a leaving do. Service was quick and efficient and the food was well presented. The menu had the usual pasta, steaks and burgers on it. Portion sizes were decent, however the whole place didn't seem the cleanest and well kept.

“Great place....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013

We come across this place and thought it looked ok from the outside, and it was actually better on the inside.
Nice lighting, various areas to sit, friendly staff and really nice food.
We spent several hours in here and would definitely return.

“Nice cheap lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

Went here for lunch and had soup & sandwich for £5! Soup was delicious carrot and coriander served with a hot chicken & salad roll! Had a nice table at the front wouldn't have fancied eating further back in the bar as it was a wee bit dark otherwise it was great!

“service really lets the food down!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

I recently visited this restaurant/bar with 4 others friends. The décor is lovely ans really gives the place alot of potential. Once we where greeted and seated to a table it became aware that we may have picked the wrong night come. Our table was in the middle of the floor with 5 chair squashed around it. ( we couldn't even push our chairs in) We asked the gentleman who seemed to be the manager that night if we could be moved to a bigger table. He told us the restaurant was fully booked and if a table came free he would give us priority to it. which is fair enough! After 30 mins when we asked we finally gave our drink order. The gentleman they came to us to tell us a bigger table was now free and we were thrilled and thought our night was going to take a turn for the best. At this stage the man took our starter order. About 10 mintues after ordering drinks we asked the young lady if they were coming and she told us they were and then we proceeded to give her our main order and made it clear to her we at also ordered starters. After about another 10 minutes are starters arrived.......BEAUTIFUL!!!!.......but just as we thought we could see our mains following behind only a couple of mintues... They took the mains back until we had finished our starters which were lovely and then later brought us our mains which again were fantastic! We decided to stay for a few drinks after our food which again turned into a disaster as everything we ordered they seemed to have ran out of or the waitresses were not aware they never stalked! When we payed the bill the girl did NOT bring us our change and just assumed it was a tip! All in all the Washington could do very well if the service was improved!
