Myself and a friend went in for their £5 pizza offer, it's not an offer, it's just a really small pizza worth £5, the service was poor, we ordered chips which we had to ask for twice again, they finally arrived after we had finished, with no apology, and were under cooked. Just not worth the time.

I first visited Walrus years and years ago not long after it opened and ate there. It's changed quite a bit since then; have popped in a few times since but not had food. Visited on a Friday evening for a bite to eat, food comes with no napkins or cutlery unless you ask for it which I found a... More

Out with friends Walrus good little spot for a cocktail and a beer. Bar staff great to speak to and openly tell you the offers available. If you're lucky enough to get a booth in the window you'll probably stay for the night, it's the type of place which is quite comfortable to be in. As the title suggest the... More

Firstly I love the music but secondly (and probably this should have been first) the drink and the food were fab! I went for the great deal on the Prosecco and some light bites with a friend. I have to say my slightly fussy specifications in regards to Chicken breast grilled without being immersed in the spicy sauce that it... More

Visited walrus for a spot of lunch, however, it turns out to be a huge disappointment! Not only was the food mediocre, the £5 lunch menu stuck in the window was seriously missleading! The bill was £12 over what the offer stated & the staff wouldnt honor the price suggested. Terrible, try somewhere else

The venue looked really trendy and inviting. For a midweek evening it was packed - so I presumed that it was going to be a hit. Unfortunately, although I was the only person waiting at the bar, it took almost 10 minutes to get served; not helped by someone who arrived a few minutes after me getting served first. I... More

I wanted to take my girlfriend somewhere to eat as we could not be bothered to cook. As there was an offer (50% off), it was a no brainier to attend. We both had a beef burger with fries which sadly were cold and uncooked. the staff were friendly but could not help us with replacing the meal. As I... More

Went a few weeks ago with a big group of friends and was very impressed with the cocktails. Went with a friend on Thursday 20th October as we were in town watching Justin Bieber and thought I would show her the nice cocktail bar. When we walked in there was about 2 tables occupied. The staff ignored us for a... More

Came here recently and had cocktails, can't exactly remember which cocktails they were however they were very nice and reasonably priced. We also had a cheesy 'garlic' bread which was disappointing as it was just simply cheese on toast. No garlic. Bar service was slow considering it was so quiet. One barman was serving whilst the other barman played on... More
