Cult cafe bar is a great place to relax. The drinks selection is extensive, the staff are always very friendly, and the menu is interesting and varied.
The food is excellent, fresh and very well prepared. Even some of the simple dishes, such as the nachos, are amazing.

We'd heard about this place, but finally got round to trying it and we're not disappointed! Vintage look was really interesting and comfortable. there was a mixed clientele from couples to small groups of twenty-somethings, to families, to older groups of friends. Open to all - not just students (though as a mum of a student it's nice to see them being made welcome and catered for in such a lovely place). Good coffee and a nice bacon sarnie for breakfast with a great view of the dock, and friendly, helpful staff. Looking forward to going back, maybe one evening when the music is on, to try some of the other items on the menu.

This is a uni venue so expectations must be conditioned around that. We have some really fabulous but quite fastidious friends so went to check out this place the night before we took them there. On the first night we paid £10 to see a group who were first class, but for their reference the support violinist was not conducive to their superb performance and we were close to leaving because we listened to what seemed to us to be the same East European folk tune played several times sung by a tuneless violins player. We shared a rack of ribs on this first occasion which were world class and a waffle and ice cream pudding which was equally good. On the return the following evening the ribs were mediocre seeming as if from a low quality supermarket;the waffles and ice cream were as good though. Perhaps it was because the owner came in the first night; it was lovely to notice her staff from their other establishment keeping her company. However the food tonight was not anywhere near as good as the previous night. Nonetheless the venue is great even for none students, but aim to finish tour meal before 9 o'clock because the really weird and unmusical dj starts!,

Had.coffee here after morning stroll. Lovely friendly staff. Went back for a drink in the evening. Although they didn't sell what I wanted the barmaid tried to make something that resembled it! All ages in there. Nice seating areas. Very nice.
