Went out to this popular restaurant and bar on Saturday with my partner. We ordered chicken wings, soup of the day, offer 20oz steak, and main course ceasar salad. Where to start, chicken wings, a disaster, tasted like fried twice and no taste at all, despite being told on the menu in a chilli and lime dressing. The chicken in... More

We stopped in at The Central for a bite to eat and found the most amazing menu. They have everything from Grenouille to Mac n Cheese, and a great selection of desserts. The Mac n Cheese rates amongst the best I've ever eaten, and my partner loved the Curried Parsnip Soup. It is a little pricey, but worth it for... More

The early bird menu was crap and didn't have a good range of meals on it, the starters were a bit steep, I ordered pork belly and the top of it was rock hard and hardly any meat underneath it, black pudding was kinda hard aswell. The staff was a bit slow and all over the place and not very... More
