We have recently introduced a New Menu based on customer feedback where you have the option to "Build Your Own" so if you don't see a option that you like from our... More

My family and I had the 10oz steak meal which not only was great value but delicious. A big bonus is byo and no corkage charge. Staff are amazing.

Visited for lunch on the 15th of January, quirky design which I liked. Greeted within seconds at the door by a lovely lady who seated us. It was quite busy but not full- despite this our order was taken very promptly by a friendly waiter. We shared breaded mushrooms to start- other restaurants breaded mushrooms tend to be watery, have... More

Nice home-cooked meal, amazing price. Nice server and good atmosphere. I ordered the chicken fajita and my boyfriend ordered the rump steak. Altogether it came to around £14. You couldn't eat out and get a deal like that unless it was fast food! It is also BYOB! ** In the picture I was awaiting the chicken filling. The chicken arrived... More

Popped in here the other day for some brunch as they had a "January Sale" on. I had a triple pancake stack with maple syrup, a sausage, a piece of bacon and an egg for just £2.95! Outstanding value! Will be back!

I just visited The Other Place for the second time and they did not disappoint. We were greeted on arrival by one of the waitresses who explained that they were running a sale menu through the month of January!! Unbelievable! The food could not be faulted. Service was quick and polite as always. I will definitely be back again.
