I've been to the soup kitchen a few times, this is the second review, I usually go with my son. We go because it's a little quirky and different, but we've come to realise that being hip and 'on trend' just isn't enough. The food...More

Lovely choice of soups, and lots of veggie/vegan options available! Soup and a sandwich deal is good value for money. Cool setting with good music.

Absolutely astonishing selection of good food and brews, craft beers. Downstairs vibrant venues take place, usually with DJs. Sometimes there is a DJ playing records on the ground floor too. I really like this place, because of the combination of tasty food and music.

I really like it here. The seating is mainly large stretched sharing tables, there is also bar stool seating at the windows. There is k good feeling of space as the ceilings are very high. There is a very relaxed atmosphere that I really liked....More

Came here as someone I know that plays in a band had a gig. The sound was average and the atmosphere was less than average, looked like it hadn't been maintained for months. The beer was kind of expensive too.

It's called the Soup Kitchen but like Oliver Twist, you'll have to beg for some more, because the serving of soup is small & pricey. I tried the beet coconut soup, with toasted pumpkin seeds. Those seeds never saw an oven, & needless to say,...More

Been here a couple of times recently as the food is really brilliant and is very reasonably priced. The staff are okay - noticed one seemed more interested in her mobile. They also seem slow getting the dishes prepared early on in the day as...More

Hey, we were there for the same reason. There is on street parking outside but not much. If you have gear, park there and drop off stuff then I'd move to Spear St (just up the road). It's only £10 for 24 hours. Have a good... More
