Great atmosphere and a good selection of food on the menu. Could sit outside and watch the world go by.

This was my second visit and on the first both my wife and I had kedgeree and it was FANTASTIC. This time I had Salmon & Crayfish Burger and it was so disappointing that I didn't finish it. I wish now I'd had the 5oz Steak & Eggs. The Cherry Tart and Clotted Cream Ice cream was disappointing too. The filling had no flavour at all - not a bit - and the pastry was a bit soggy. My wife's Parmesan Chicken was good however, as was her Sticky Toffee pudding - but neither was as pleasing as the kedgeree first time round.

Disappointed though we were to some degree we love the atmosphere and the staff and so we'll be back again someday soon. This time the whole front of the restaurant was open because of the heat and it was great to sit close to the front and 'people-watch'. The Spanish macabeo wine, by the way, was splendid.

This is very much just an overage chain style bar - one big square room - fine for a quick drink but not much in the way of atmosphere - if you are out with a bunch of friends it may fit the bill but there are better options locally if you are after character.

Arcado Lounge is a good place to sit back and relax. It has comfy sofas as well as chairs and at the back of the restaurant it also has board games! (hence the name 'arcado'). It offers good deals for lunch, whether it's a panini, an all day breakfast or some tapas you're after. I would say the main meals can be expensive for what they are though, but overall it's a great place for lunch or even just a snack. I thoroughly recommend it.
