Decided to try the sunday lunch menu after walking past previously and seeing meals on the tables.
Tried the calypso chicken sunday dinner. Plate full of food all well cooked and under a tenner. Great venue with great staff. Only got one complaint........... its called Olbys soul café but the music was not to our liking next time we come can I bring my Northern Soul Cd and make the place come alive lol??????

Partner and I popped in on a whim. Funky décor. Fab customer service. Excellent food, done really well, all coincidentally accompanied by a great band downstairs playing a bit of The Jam. Thanks guys!

Very rude bar staff, expensive drinks served in cheap flimsy, plastic "glasses" and ignorant security. Won't come back again.

Great little bar that service a delightful selection of BBQ and jerk food. A delightful lunch was shared over a nice cold bottle of vino watching the world go by. Great service in the bar and the food was just brilliant.The ribs just fell of the bone and we’re delightfully sticky
