Headed to Granello Lounge on a very cold, grim January night last week.
The atmosphere was warm and the staff friendly.
The veggie food options were surprisingly good and my friend and I went for the Veggie Mexican food bowl and halloumi and felafel salad.
Both were fresh and very tasty.
Special note to our servers that evening, both Harry and Dani, provided great service and entertainment.
It's also dog-friendly. What's not to love!

So it was news years day late morning and me and my friend were hanging from a heavy news years party. I rang the restaurant to see if they were doing breakfast, well that’s when I made my mind up to go, the guy on the phone was so cheerful and full of banter and we had a great exchange on how I was feeling rough and needed food, juice and sympathy. One out later we walked into the restaurant and there he was, big smile and when I asked if he was the guy on the phone he said “are you the guy who needs a pillow” and then came around and gave me hug, hilarious and what customer service. The place was packed as I’m sure you can imagine and I had a simple breakfast of Eggs Benedict and toast, and was also given a free black coffee by one of the waitresses. I have no complaints on the food other than the high price they charge for some extras like over 80p for 1 slice of black pudding, but the service was superb. Great way to start the new year.

My husband and I love this restaurant/bar. He had the lounge breakfast and I had the buttermilk chicken which came with delicious coleslaw. We both had lattes but if I didn't have the car I would tried a few cocktails- they do a great range. You order at the bar and give your table number and service was very friendly and efficient. I love the eclectic design which is featured throughout.
