Before I get into the main body of the review, let me stress that the quality of the food was exceptional. It was the portion sizes and the service that let the venue down. We paid £30pp for the stingiest three course meal known to man. Even an anorexic ant would have left feeling hungry. Add onto that £30 for... More

Went for first time with friends and enjoyed it immensely. Good atmosphere and great, reasonabley priced food. Joe who looked after us was excellent, friendly and humorous. Had a good night there, will go again.

Lovely place and delicious food. The portion size of the starters is on the small side (only 3 tempura prawns, 4 tiny black bean fritters), there was too much harissa on the aubergine and I think the surcharge for the steak (£7) is just greedy, but the meal was very good. Great service from the waiter, and we like the... More

My wife and I went for lunch, not busy as only 1 other table was occupied. The decor is rather basic and menu choice limited. We ordered 2 different main courses and were both astonished at the portion sizes, EXTREMELY meagre - neither of us have great appetites but could have eaten 3 portions of that size, just glad we...

Excellent ambiance, updated and rebranded since I was last here, casual shabby chic. Full English well done, no greasy stuff here. It's twice the price of Weatherspoons but it is twice the breakfast

In St John's Alley right next to the Madder Market Theatre, nicely decorated with lots of character in a beautiful old building. We had a set main course and pudding. Perfect sized portions and delicious flavours, I had venison, and a yummy plum crumble for pudding. My daughter who is vegetarian had a very tasty vegetable spring roll and chocolate... More

Really nice place, ideal for friends catching up on a Saturday night. Quite pricey - £23 for 2 courses - and my friend's haddock starter was pretty small....but really tasty. Hake and chorizo mains were delicious.

we had planning to come for breakfast here for a wile. It was quite quiet when we were there (11am). We had the Huevos Racheros which was ok but not very authentic compared to ones we have had in California and Costa Rica. There was a nice menu with interesting choices - the food of our fellow diners looked very... More
