“The best food, drinks and entertainment on burton road!”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

This is one of my favourite places to eat and drink on burton road. They offer fantastic food at affordable prices, I fully recommend the chilli and delicious homemade pizzas. My boyfriend is veggie and the menu itself, is a good mix of vegetarian and meat dishes, so it is perfect for us. Not to mention the amount of choice available at the bar!! Lots of different ales, spirits and fruit beers. Beautiful retro decor, full of sexy surrealist paintings and posters. They create a wonderful chilled environment here, with good music and such warm helpful service. Personally, I return to this place all the time. The sunday spoonful night is well worth checking out too if you are interested in live acoustic music.

“Tuesday Pizza Deal Well Woth it”
Reviewed August 20, 2013 via mobile

Pizza & beer for £7 - happy days; and the pizza's were really tasty. Summed up as a halfway house between pizza express & domino's - tasty. I also agree with the previous reviews here where the service and selection of beers are both really good and the atmosphere created is a fun, laid back environment.

“Great sandwiches”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

Went on a Sunday morning recently for brunch and opted for he California Grill sandwich - this was an amazing choice on my part as it was very enjoyable, well presented and there was plenty of it!

However, went back the next week for brunch and decided to sample the breakfast, unfortunately I didnt enjoy this as much as the sandwich on my previous visit. I was expecting better things from the breakfast due to my previous experience and it just didnt deliver. For a decent breakfast in West DIdsbury I recommend Thyme Out just round the corner.

I was also disappointed to hear that their cakes are not baked fresh on the premises but bought in. I, therefore, dont see how this can justify the prices they are asking for them.

However, this is a great spot for this bar/restuarant, it is always busy and is well worth going for the California Grill alone. (Look it up on there menu - amazing idea for a sandwich!)

“Great food”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

We ate here on a Sunday afternoon and were very pleasantly surprised. We had the Cajun fish burger and the jerk chicken which was lovely and spicy- really delicious. The cider was great too. Cakes were ok- the hazelnut cake was much better than the brownie which was a little dry.
