We had the chicken roast and lamb. It was delicious! Probably one of the best roasts i’ve had. The lamb was mouthwatering and seasoned perfectly. The portions are big so make sure you go on an empty stomach. The cucumber and mint infused water was refreshing! Will definitely revisit soon! (Great that they have halal options)

Visited day time for lunch. Delicious food and service was excellent and friendly.
Had the crumble for dessert - yum!

Nice décor. Only minus would be the music was too loud.

Not our best experience on this occasion. Rather a long wait for our food & the burger was over cooked. The fruit pie contained very little fruit. Waitress was very pleasant & helpful and we chose a very nice chocolate brownie instead. Loud music made conversation difficult, Not sure we will be back.

Fantastic, we struggle as a couple to find places that have meaty options and also vegan gluten free for myself - even had a choice for the latter, and our server's recommendation was fantastic - really tasty and many thanks.

Gorgeous place to eat and the food was excellent. Love the interiors and all the plants, the aesthetics are beaut. I was dining with a small group and they did feel the music was too loud and I had to agree. Considering we were out for lunch, the music was a little like we were in a noisy bar. Perhaps that’s the kind of atmosphere they like but for trying to have a nice conversation it did feel like we were shouting at times! Apart from that it was lovely, thank you!

I've been to Evelyn's a few times and enjoyed myself, but this time I was disappointed. We booked a table, but after waiting a few minutes for someone to acknowledge us we were told to wait downstairs. We happily obliged as there was a bar down there, but were surprised to find the place was empty with no one on the bar. We waited 5-10 minutes then were shown to our table. It took about 15-20 minutes to get our drinks order taken, and were only served as we had to ask someone rushing past us.

We were there for my birthday, which my dad told the waiter, to which he replied 'Oh'.

The food, when it came, was good, though there was some confusion about the kind of chips they had brought us, though they waitress kindly rectified that.

A second drinks order had obviously been completely forgotten (3 bottles of beer and a G&T) as we were still waiting on them 20 minutes later. On asking the waitress again she hurriedly rushed behind the bar and made them herself, though with no apology for the wait.

At this point we were pretty fed up, though my mum was still eating. As she was trying to finish her meal another waitress started clearing the table of plates, including one of the dishes my mum was clearly still eating from. Again, no apology, which would've easily diffused the situation.

We left without desserts and further drinks as we'd already spent two hours in the restaurant for starters and mains. It's not big stuff, but the little things made a dent in our experience. I left a little bit gutted as it was an underwhelming a birthday meal. The staff were either rushed off their feet or just didn't care at all. A shame really, as the quality of the food is good. Not sure I'll be back for a good while.

Lovely place but a little overpriced on some menu items. I consider myself to be fairly savvy about how much stuff costs & how much effort it is for staff, and as such I'm usually somewhat lenient... but my cacao bowl was expensive, no question.

...bloody lovely though.

Nice relaxed atmosphere only a few strides away from all the branded stuff and hustle and bustle of Market St / City Centre. Good menu with something for everyone so great choice for a mixed group - we were in at 5pm for a pre-theatre meal. Food was really tasty and a little different , good value making the whole package a bit special.

I’ve been to Evelyn’s a number of times and it’s one of my favourite places for brunch for dinner, however lunch menu isn’t enough choice and this particular time the service wasn’t great. Not sure if it was just a bad day for our waistress, moody, zero smiles, and just overall unhelpful. Not disappointment as a regular customer.

Our food and drinks were delicious, we all really enjoyed our meals. The service was a little abrupt, our food was brought to our table and the staff were so quick we didn't get the chance to ask for some more drinks, or the condiments we wanted. We then had to wait to catch someone else's eye to order what we wanted. Other than that a very pleasant experience. It was a busy Saturday afternoon and I think the service reflected that, we felt quite rushed.
