“Average. Would not rush back.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

Food was not as described on the menu. Potato was luke warm. Overpriced for what we got. Service was average, but friendly. Nice setting - pity the food didn't match.

“Delicious food, cosy & comfortable + child friendly!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

Went to the Corn Exchange with a group of friends over the weekend- was blown away with what the new management have done with the place! Awesome menu with loads of variety, friendly & attentive waitstaff and cosy atmosphere! They even had colouring pencils and a selection of toys at the ready to keep the kids entertained.
Had a great evening- I will definitely be back :)

“Look forward to going back”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013

Went to the Corn Exchange for lunch, were in a bit of a hurry explained this to the waitress from then on she made sure everything moved along quickly though we didn't feel rushed. Lunch was nice, pretty much upmarket pub fare but just what we were looking for. The thing that made it better then average was the friendly efficient waiting staff, they are an asset to the restaurant.

We are keen to go back again, next time we are that way and in not such a hurry to try dinner or something on their Lunch rather then Snack menu.
