    Four of us throughly enjoyed our lunch. We were well looked after from start to finish. The dining room was fairly quiet because of cancellations due to the omicron virus. The food was interesting, beautifully presented and very tasty. We all had 3 courses and enjoyed by us all and we had a bottle of house red wine which was served at room temperature and delicious with our meal. We were not rushed, could talk easily with very little background noise. We will definitely be going back.

    Awful , we booked for a pre theatre dinner, when I mentioned this on arrival we were told they don’t do pre theatre on a Saturday night- (the night most people go to the theatre. So we were given the al a carte menu, 2 of us opted for risotto-well we couldn’t eat it, absolutely terrible, basically a bowl of sludge. The 3rd person went for seabas, this came battered which none of us had ever seen it cooked like that before. It was like something from the chippy. Will definitely not be back or recommend to anyone.

    Contrast BrasserieResponded on 30 November 2021

    Dear Guest, I'm sorry you felt you had to leave us such a bad review. The menu you wished to dine on has not been served in our restaurant on a Saturday night for about 3-4 years now, it does state this online on our website. My colleagues did check on the table several times during the meal and even asked if you would like the dishes to be changed to something else. This offer was declined by your table Kind Regards B.Larsen General Manager

    Interesting menu - alot of interesting fish dishes,with an Asian fusion twist…birthday meal for me - but the restaurant failed to deliver the little ‘surprise’ that my husband had pre-arranged. Lively atmosphere and nice decor. A bit pricey for the food…

    We chose this Restaurant after looking at the menu but I can honestly say the food was not good we had the pre-theatre menu, which at £24.95 for 3 courses was more expensive than other restaurants offering the same early bird menu. My Calamari starter was rubbery, not all of it but 50% of it. The pork belly rolls were cooked in fill pastry, impossible to eat with utensils easier to use your fingers. My main course chicken was really dry. My brothers rump steak was chewy! In fact the only good main on our table was sea bass in Tempura batter, but why put the fish in batter. Puddings decidedly average. The staff were great very attentive and polite the Restaurant itself was laid out nicely and very well decorated. What a shame the food was a let down. I chose this Restaurant on the lovely choice of food on its menu and I did read the reviews which were decidedly varied. I really hope it was just a bad night for this Restaurant and your standard of prepared good improves quickly.

    Worst meal I’ve had there ,been going for some time but this visit was poor,the pork belly starter was greasy the vegetables on the roast were awful and Yorkshire pudding was dry and hard .... there were no vegetarian options other than tofu which I don’t eat and when asked if there was anything else I could be offered was told the chefs said no , but there was salad and vegetables ? Not even an offer of the chefs doing a cheese sauce on some veg ... no effort made ,the male waiter wasn’t very friendly... so all in all a very disappointing visit, and a waste of almost £50 ,not sure we will bother to visit again ,as Seems standards have dropped drastically,such a shame as have always enjoyed our meals there. So something has to change to make me return ...,.

    Superb Sunday Roast and the owner gave us two glasses of bubbly for our anniversary which was a lovely touch.

    The food, service and surroundings were first class the only negative aspect was a noisy, large group at the front of the restaurant which difficult to hold our own conversation.

    I ordered salmon but discovered the dish contained shellfish although this was not stated on the menu. I’m allergic to shellfish so was unable to eat it. The chef cooked the dish without the shellfish but the salmon was raw this time. Third time it came it was cooked properly but by then I’d really lost the will to live. Was offered a small refund but considering the fact I could have been seriously unwell I think this was poor service and I won’t be going back

    Dear Guest, My apologies on the issues you have raised. I will speak to my kitchen team and front of house team and find out why this happened. We do ask that any allergies are notified to our team when the order is taken. I hope you will give us another chance in the future to show you how good we are Kind Regards Ben Larsen General Manager

    Food was ok, not special, the service was not friendly at all, hasty and not clientfriendly, too expensive for what you get.
