Not a lot of choice on the menu. And a few drinks that we ordered came in dirty glasses but my food I had was nice, I enjoyed mine. Atmosphere was nice. But I wouldn't rush to go back.

Had a nice lunch here on 28th May 2017. The restaurant was very busy, but the food was good. The staff had plenty to do but were working hard and were very courteous.

Good quality, and good value food. It was a bank holiday weekend and they managed to squeeze us in (without the annoying 'ummm have you booked???' that many restaurants do these days. The staff were friendly and prompt. The restaurant had a great vibe, it was busy and chatty but not too loud that you can't have a conversation with... More

What a shame! We've visited Oscars often in the past and you could always count on it for decent bistro type food. I don't know what's happened but the service was poor, a really unfriendly, dis-interested waiter. We waited quite a while for our burgers then when they turned up they were dry, my husbands sauce was missing, the chips... More

We visited without a booking at lunch time. Wasn't too busy so managed to get a table without waiting. Good food, wraps sandwiches chips etc. Coffees came with a free macaroon which was a bonus. Friendly staff & decent prices.

Always raved about Oscars as visited for years and always been great. Sadly not this time, I had to send my food back as I could barely cut into it and the chips were no where near as nice as the usual oscars standard. Some of us ordered puddings and it wasn't even busy but still took over 30 minutes... More

We had the nachos and sangria offer on a Friday evening & it was lovely. A very good portion. There were also cocktail offers which we enjoyed.
