“Very average and poor value.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2014

It was fairly busy on the Saturday evening we visited but the wait for drinks and menu seemed rather long. The starters and puddings were fine but the mains were pretty average and quite small portions for the price. One of the mains was wrong but rather than waiting for the right dish we accepted it but were then charged for both dishes. The mistake was rectified but not much of an apology for either error. Overall not good value for money.

“Pudding or Paella”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2014

I wonder if other reviewers went to the same restaurant as my husband and myself last night. We visited the Printroom for our wedding anniversary. The starters were alright and we both chose Paella for our main meal, it was a cross between rice pudding and cement with hunt the muscle and prawns with no sign of chicken or saffron, it had obviously been standing since lunch time and put on the evening menu as a special at £2.00 extra, even a glass of water together with a glass of wine did not help choke it down so we had to give up. The chef needs to get a cookery book and dictionary to find out about the different herbs and ingredients that make a Paella.

“Lovely food and great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2014 via mobile

We visited the Printroom last night with a groupon voucher an had a great night. There was a lot of delicious sounding dishes on the menu so it took a while to decide. I chose the creamy garlic mushrooms to start and the chorizo and prawn arrabiatta for main with a glass of Shiraz. All of it was amazing. My main course arrived without the chorizo but the chef realised and was very apologetic. Within minutes I had my dish back in front of me and it was worth the wait. A lot of restaurants are a bit stingy with prawns but I had loads, both big and small and the chorizo gave it a nice kick. My boyfriend had the nachos followed by the beef burger. I didn't try the burger but the nachos were yummy. The service was fantastic and we'll definitely be back.

“Excellent food and service 5*”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2014 via mobile

Ate here on a groupon deal what can I say absolutely fantastic! Service was outstanding and food 5* highly recommend cannot wait for our next visit! All staff go out there way and made us feel very relaxed with a very friendly atmosphere. Perfect restaurant, credit to owner! We chose our table near the bar and then a table became available near the window with more comfy seats and we were asked if we would like to move to a more comfortable and romantic table, now that's what I call service and care for customers. Thank you!

“Excellent...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2014 via mobile

Both myself and my partner went for a groupon meal here last night, we were both very impressed with our starters and main meals. The food was delicious and service was very good, we didn't have to wait long for either of our meals.. I would definitely recommend this restaurant, and will be visiting again soon.
