Great food of high standards without stuffiness! City centre standard of food and service. Lovely bar area for aperitifs. Beautiful building and warm decor. Great versatility on the menu.

Great location and food. One quibble - we visited on a Sunday, and the place looked like it had only been given a cursory clean. The toilet floors were dirty and all of the doors, and the back of the chairs were sticky, and the general restaurant floor unswept (dust under the banquettes) - like the wait staff did a... More

I had lunch in Hartley's last week. We both ate from the value menu to which they often add a special or two. All of the food was beautifully prepared and service was friendly and efficient. I cannot fault the meal. One area that I would like to talk about though, is the service charge was managed. The restaurant added... More

I think the title says it all. I have been to this restaurant twice. The staff are friendly, welcoming and helpful. The menu is very good as is the food, with fast service, perfectly cooked food and excellent ingredients. The prices are reasonable, and very good value. I have been delighted on both visits - in each case just turning... More

We visited on a Saturday night and I really can't say enough about how good the service is. The staff are knowledgable about their product and have that perfect balance of allowing the dinner conversation to flow - not asking "is everything alright" every 10 minutes. The food is simple enough, and done well. The drinks list is comprehensive. The... More

6 of us had a lovely dinners (one of us is Gluten intolerant). It was a pleasant meal lovely choice (particularly steak and fish) and very good value. The staff are very attentive and the old style rail way building adds a certain character to the evening.

The food, we could not fault it was very well made and well worth the price. However we did find the restaurant itself to be lacking atmosphere and the staff to be very unattentive.
