Vegan meal was overpriced for the ingredients that were in it and the amount of food you got. Flatbread with cauliflower as the main ingredients totting up to £10....would have expected more.

Meat meals didn't have a lot of meat in them, mainly all fries. Was ok but wouldn't eat there again.

Take away cakes are delicious.

The food was good but the service was very slow. We waited nearly half an hour to pay with the plates on our table, just a bit annoying really.

Lovely little spot for brunch in particularly (although they do run an evening menu with a bar licence).

Range of food was perfect, from traditional English breakfasts to edgy unique offerings and also the more lean choices.

We had to wait 15 minutes for our milkshakes which was a shame but the staff informed us of this at the time of ordering anyway.
My only criticism would be that the sourdough toast could’ve been warmer and given it was only a two meal order, had expected better.

Nevertheless, a cracking spot and will be back again. Long live the brunch.

Went to home sweet home on Sunday 31st, mother’s Day at 3pm and I must say, the service was amazing, couldn’t fault it in any way. The waiter who was looking after us was really nice and made sure everything we got was great, I think his name was Ky. He was a really lovely guy, and it was one of the best experiences I’ve had when eating out. Would definitely be coming back and I would recommend home sweet home to anyone, Thankyou!

Had one of the best eating out experiences here. The food was great but the best part of the experience was out waiter Ky. He was absolutely amazing, making sure that we felt welcome, had everything we needed and made great conversation! He is definitely one of the best waiters I’ve had in a long time!

From being seated at 6pm, when we had booked for (good start) it was 45 minutes until our starters arrived, then a further hour for our main courses. Whilst it was clear our waiter was doing his best the delay seemed to be elsewhere (the kitchen?). The restaurant was busy, but not full. It was disappointing to have to wait so long for our food, which was really nice when it arrived.

sat down straight away- service a little slow and muddled but it was packed to the rafters, so it was understandable - wrong fries brought with one meal- exchanged immediately, with apology. all food piping hot.

We visited HSH on a Saturday morning for breakfast. On arrival we order two soft drinks and a coffee. Considering there were only a few tables taken we waited 20 minute before asking where the drinks were. It took a fuether 10 minutes for tgem to arrive. We then ordered food and waited another 20 minutes for it to arrive. The staff were very friendly. The place was lovely and the food was nice. The only thing that came quickly to the table was the bill. Overall I would go back but would be chasing drinks and food after 15 minutes to avoid long wait times!!

I went to home sweet home in the Northern Quarter.
I was expecting great food and service. Food is average and menu options are limited. The service was great from some members of staff and very poor from others. The waitress was reading a book every time she could which kept her distracted and made the service very slow.
I will not be coming back to have food as other places offer with similar concepts (american diner) with more food options and better service.
The cake was great though.

Food was great but the service was really bad. We were in the secret room and twice where brought the wrong drinks. When the food arrived it took 15 minutes between the first plate and the last plate so most people had finished before all the food was delivered.

Table of 6. Booked for brunch. Attentive waiter who explained breakfast menu was finishing soon but they could squeeze us in if we wanted. I’ve visited a few times. I recommend steak n eggs. Although pancakes looked gorgeous and my veggie friend enjoyed her full breakfast. All in all a fun place for brunch. Family friendly

Service was pretty bad - food was sat under the heat lamp for over five minutes and it wasn’t busy.. I had to tell the waiter that our food had been sat there for a long time and he just said if it isn’t warm, we’ll make it again. Two chefs just stood there talking over the food..

Have been many times and usually it’s alright, but overall it was very bad and was only made better by having 30% off.

Table was booked for half 6, when served it took over 10 minutes each time a drink was ordered. We waited for over an hour for our mains and when enquired told it was another 15 minutes like we had been forgotten. Our main came at 8:05pm, one of our parties steak was stone cold and inedible, and due to delays over half the food was left as we had to leave so we could attend a show we were seeing at 8:30pm.

Visited last week on the eve of my birthday. The restaurant was busy, but severely understaffed. Young lad pretty much running the place and rushed off his feet. I really, really felt for him. We ordered starters and mains but had to leave before receiving the mains, as we'd already been in well over an hour waiting for nacho starters and other tables had walked who had waited even longer.
The server was really apologetic and would highly recommend him, but he was under too much pressure to man a large restaurant solely.
I absolutely wouldn't return.

Upon arrival we were told that there was no chicken. This eliminated 85% of the menu, still we stayed as I had been previously and had enjoyed my meal. I got the steak, which I was never asked how I would like it, it arrived pretty much still beating, I didn't want to say anything to the waitress as I have been in that role before and there is nothing worse than someone who whinge about their food. I ate the chips and replacement cheese fries as they had ran out of mac n cheese balls. My partner had the burger which looked amazing, I wish I had chosen that now. After the food we asked for the cheque, waited about 20 minutes and then had to ask for it again as the waitress seemed to have forgotten us. This refunded me of the KFC fiasco when they ran out of chicken, I was gutted as I had raved about the basket of chicken all day.

We were a bit early to our reservation, so we grabbed drinks at the bar. The service there was great and the cocktails were good! But, once we had gotten our table and tried to order, the kitchen was out of everything. Apparently, an order hadn't come in so over half of the menu was unavailable. We received our food and the nachos that were ordered didn't have all of the toppings that were listed on the menu. Overall, it wasn't terrible but I don't plan on returning.

Food was average. Really enjoyed the fries but the burgers were disappointing. Was happy it had discount as i don’t think it’s worth the full price. The drinks were good value for money. The service was fast and friendly and we wasn’t checked if everything was okay too often which was good. The restaurant was clean and quiet. Overall was an enjoyable evening.

Our trip was okay but a bit disappointing overall.

There were 6 of us, including 2 children. From the order, it took over half an hour to get the food. We could see it sitting under the lamps for a decent while. When it arrived, the has was cold.

We didn't say anything as we were in a rush, so adding more time wasn't an option.

The place is really well spoken of, so I will be back, it was just a bit of a letdown.
