The Borough is a great venue for multiple occasions. You can have a delicious breakfast, lunch or evening meal or just relax in the bar or outdoor seating area. The staff are really helpful and the environment is ambient in its historic building with a chic finish. The menus are varied price wise with emphasis on local produce.

The borough is a lovely venue with a very chic bar area and is considered the place to be seen, however, the food does not live up to the venue. Basics are ok but anything mildly exotic on the menu is best avoided.

Great setting for a lovely bar. They serve local beers but we were most impressed with the gin menu, including a Japanese gin which I had not tried before. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

Came with 4 colleagues on a Wednesday night, the place was busy. The draft beer selection was great and the staff friendly. Toilets are upstairs if that's an issue for you. Was a bit stuffy inside when we were there due to the number of people inside, but we had a great time and recommend. Will be back when in... More

Called here for supper before going to the theatre, ten percent off on production of theatre tickets. We opted for the school meal deal, very good value. We did however add a couple of desserts. The profiteroles and cappuccino cheesecake absolutely gorgeous. Really enjoyed who definitely recommend.

As you walk into The Borough, you get the old pub atmosphere with dark wooden furniture, William Morris-esque wallpaper and of course, the bar! Its a nice quiet place for drinks and a few nibbles and the bar staff are super friendly and helpful when you're stuck on which cider to try!
