Fast and friendly service, relaxed but efficient and professional. The pork was amazing, I think the picture says it all really. Great sauces, great crackling, perfect all around. Colleagues rated the chowder and steak. Thank you

Great meal had by everyone. We have been in town for 5 nights and disappointed that only found this place on last night. Best meal we have had in town above all others. Good value

This busy little bar restaurant does surprisingly high quality fine dining in nice surroundings, and there is plenty on the plate without any sides.

This was our first visit to this restaurant and we were really pleasantly surprised. My friend and I had a starter each with breads, which was plenty!, while our husbands loved the steaks.

They did replace the pork with a fresh piece which was more satisfactory. The crackling however was almost black in colour and impossible to eat with a normal... More

These guys have been doing a really good job for a few years now. Reliable food (The fiji curry is great) with a layout that allows you to find a good spot to make a bit of noise with friends or have a quiet dinner for 2. Good menu, and a service team who really know their stuff.

We hit Split Bar between breakfast and lunch and for coffee - very, very good coffee! The bar staff and chefs made us feel welcome and were happy for us to decide if we wanted to eat there whilst enjoying the coffee, and it turned out to be the right choice to opt for an early lunch because the place...
