We arrived and ate late at around 8.45pm and since it was a Friday night you could tell the kitchen had been busy - but the staff from bar to table service remained super welcoming and attentive. The food was hot, well made with good ingredients. It's a nice menu with plenty of stuff you'd want to eat. The overall... More

The service was extremely friendly. Food was not pretentious enough for Michelin stars but so much better than pub food. Really good.

Nice looking restaurant done out with randomly matched wooden chairs & tables. Menu is a mix of tapas style plates, salads, sandwiches and baguettes. My wife's duck salad with strawberries was a hit with her – light and tasty. I opted for 2 tapas plates thinking they would be small but in reality it was too much for lunch. Both... More

The food was very good, every in my group of friends commented on it. The service was fine. Only downside was the level of noise in the place. Would go again.

We booked a table as they were advertising the Ronaldo's on at 8.00pm. Thought we would get there at 7.00pm to have our meal an hour before they started playing. The food and service was good, but the band didn't start playing until just after 9.00pm which we found a long wait and we left at 9.45pm less than half... More

First review of a place we have visited countless times. We've always enjoyed our visits to Housmans and this time was no exception. Gambas to start with were delicious and washed down with a glass of the quaffable house pinot grigio. I had fillet steak for mains and it was super. I like my steak rare and this was perfect....

Housemans is a good bistro during the day you can go for coffee and in the evening it's a nice dining choice. Doesn't really cater for children had to pay full price for a pizza for child was over 12.00! Recommend this for adults.

The staff are extremely welcoming and friendly and work incredibly hard. The young lady Harriet? And her team are a credit to the place. Definitely come back next time... More
