a nice bar/restaurant with a range of craft beers/ales, pleasant staff too, I had some small plates from the menu, padron peppers, grilled chicken satay style, and some very tasty kimchi fries, a pleasant place to snack and drink with friends or alone.

I visit Common often for drinks with friends but noticed they had changed their menu recently so visited for food at the weekend. Great choice of veggie and vegan options - something a little different to the normal 'veggie burger' too which I was pleased...More

Yes - it's a Holiday Inn - and next to one of the biggest family shopping centres in Europe. I was waiting for someone in reception for 30 mins - and it was all families on a week night.
