Lovely little restaurant perfect for a cosy meal or catch up with friends. Went here for valentines, service was friendly but we felt it was rather slow for a place that wasn’t overly packed. Have been informed that there is only one chef so this makes it more understandable. I have been here before at lunchtimes with friends and the overall atmosphere has been much better so maybe this was just a one off :) the food was not quite as nice as I expected but it has been better before so I’m guessing it’s all personal taste!
Overall would reccomend to people and hopefully LiAise will continue to prosper!

Can thoroughly recommend Liase, staff friendly and helpful.
lively atmosphere. Food plentiful and cooked to order.
There is a new menu, but still a good choice.
I had the mixed grill cooked to perfection, generous portions.
An excellent choice of cocktails that slipped down a little too easily.
A little gem

A group of 6 of us came to Liase on Saturday night for the 80's evening. When we arrived the restaurant was only half full and only a handful of people in fancy dress - but that didn't bother us.
2 of us had ordered the retro menu that was available, i have to say i had no complaints with my food and actually really enjoyed it, £15 for 3 courses was great value.
We all ordered the retro cocktails priced at £4 when they arrived they were in the smallest glasses and it was gone after 2 sips.
The rest of the group ordered off the normal menu, for what they had i think the food was quite overpriced and very small portion sizes.
As they evening went on there was a live singer which was very good.
The 2 of us that had the 3 course menu didn't receive our desert - not sure why as it wasn't overly busy when asked we were told we could take it home not ideal when on a night out so unfortunately we never had it.
Then it came to paying the very expensive bill - on closer inspection we worked out that we had been overcharged by almost £40. Again when questioned you said it was down to the computer? anyway this was then rectified. If we weren't having such a good evening i would have been very disappointed with my visit.
All in all not the best experience. I don't usually leave reviews but felt this one was needed. I would like to add though that the staff were lovely and the review is not about them just the food and restaurant in general.

Disappointed, was expecting it to be a vibrant restaurant, but it was more like a cafe atmosphere and setting. The menu was very limited with little selection on it and to make matters worse the waitress informs us that some of these were limited in number or not available.

We have no complaints about the food or service, we were very disappointment with the ambiance and the fact that young children were booked in and playing around on a Saturday night. We were looking for a weekend meal out that we could remember.

Fantastic personal service as usual, had a taste of the new menu and had 20% off . I had the triple stack burger which was very tasty and my wife the lamb , which was a little too fatty for her liking. Also both dishes could have been served a bit hotter as they were about lukewarm when served. Have been before and will visit again , as prices are reasonable and service is great. 👍

Went here for a 30th birthday and Wes very disappointed. We had 3 courses, 1st course Wes garlic prawns with were from frozen and were very small (not king prawns as advertised) and were over cooked. Main course I had a steak with the waiter had to go and get from Asda and was full of grissal and was over cooked and I'm sure wasn't a sirloin as asked as it was as tough as old boots. My wife ordered the burger with tasted incredibly cheap and not nice at all but I will say the fries and the chunky chips were amazing, but not £30 amazing. Then we asked what puddings they had on offer as it was a special occasion and we were offered a hot fruit crumble( in 30 degrees heat) or ice cream, that's it. The staff were great and we felt very welcome but hardly any food on the menu and some of the quality of ingredients were very poor.

Nine of us went here on a works get together, we all had a great time! Everyone enjoyed their food, good portion sizes. Quite pricey but it was good quality and well cooked.
Amazing cocktails. Super friendly and helpful staff. One member of our group had special food requirements and these were met by the chef who took time to come over and have a chat. Definitely recommend

Great food & great service as always. Good deal on steak night - 2 steaks & a bottle of very nice wine for £40. Girlie night to celebrate my birthday & we had a lovely time. The only thing we would like to see more of is puddings 😀 Great variety of gins & cocktails available too 🍸

Location is tricky, the lift was turned off and my nan had to walk down the stairs. Not a very nice part of town either. Nan enjoyed her food. My food was nice, the burger could have been a bit more meaty, it had a very processed texture to it. Lots of things came with the burger, but hardly anything came with the hake.

Had lunch here for an early Mother’s Day treat we had the cod and chips special which was excellent along with the curry and all the trimmings the food was excellent and nicely presented accompanied by a nice bottle of wine?
Staff friendly and a nice atmosphere we will be returning to try on of their evening events a very nice family owned and run establishment,well worth supporting.
Give this place a try recommended.

Haven't been before so thought I would try it for date night with the misses was cosy and very clean and also looked the part. The best but for me was that when I ordered the steak the chef came out and gave me a choice of 2 types of fillet that he had in and also how I wanted it cooked and reassured me it would be rare not medium rare like most places I go and the food was amazing. Had a good choice of drinks which even included my favourite dead man's finger rum which i have only ever seen in one other establishment. 5 star to this place I will be returning again

The restaurant was empty, not a good sign, there was a distinct lack of choice for starters or mains, due to a really busy lunch that day, ordered starters, only not to get them because the chef forgot to do them. Only one choice of lager because the other had run out, meal was well presented and cooked well, but didn't have a dessert because there was a choice of two only, no offer of cheese and biscuits or coffee, so paid and left, disappointed
