Visited for dinner before a concert in the City Centre. I am always a little wary when staff are cleaning the tables adjacently to your own with a 'spray' gun that not only discharges its contents onto the table at which it is being aimed, but also the surrounding tables. After clearing my throat we ordered our burger and fries,... More

Visited as a party of 9 last Saturday, took over an hour to be seated which was expected anyway due to it being very busy - not a problem as we went to the upstairs bar for a few drinks. Cocktails were amazing!! Once seated we were seen to very quickly and our orders were taken. I had the butter,... More

We recently called here for a meal after visiting the nearby cinema complex. They do not take reservations so all are walk-ins. Despite it being an early Saturday evening and the place looking very busy we were quickly found a table. Once there a waiter was soon on hand to take our drinks order. This arrived promptly as did later... More

Food was average. The concept of the venue propelled the food higher. Cheap and cheerful in a nice way. Glassware and jugs very dirty, almost unacceptable. Glass container the cutlery was in was filthy. Tables sticky. Floor dirty. Mentally I now expect the kitchen to be dirty and unclean. Surly this is easy to fix. Service was friendly, charming and...

We chose almost famous on recommendations from friends as being a very good place to eat. It was to celebrate my friends 21st birthday. When arriving we were told to wait for a table which wasn't a problem because there was a bar upstairs which we had a drink at. We were seated by one of the waitresses who was... More

I went with the most simple burger as that is a good test of underlying quality, and it was a really good burger except the hair(s) in it were probably not mine. Bacon fries were lukewarm. Beer tasted tired. Staff lovely and helpful. So mixed reviews.
