Held a private jazz and tapas party here for 65 guests for a 50th celebration and it was perfect! Couldn't have asked for a better evening, and very reasonably priced too. Venue meant that guests could mingle but then take a seat while food was waitress served, and live jazz made for a great atmosphere. Thank you Strays for a fabulous event.

This place is usually really good but on this occasion I was so disappointed. The staff were rude and very complacent, we asked them to clear our table as it was dirty and they did this reluctantly. Really very poor service but the food was good!

When I meet my sister for lunch, Strays is where we go and usually the food is good. However, on this occasion, it was very poor. Had we not had so much to catch up on, we would have sent the food back but we didn't discuss this until we had finished and then shared our views which all turned out to be the same. We felt then that we couldn't complain since we had eaten it! Basically, we made the mistake of ordering the Italian open sandwiches. This was exceptionally poor value for money as there was so little to it but the main problem was that the bread was so tough we just could not cut it! Very poor food. Order carefully!

Strays has a uniqueness all of its own! If you can find your way through a bizarre and somewhat unintelligible blackboard menu, pay for what you chosen and then found a free seat in the maze of the building, you will have done well.

The food is good but not exceptional nor especially inexpensive.

We used to visit regularly but find other outlets now in Newark to be more satisfying.

Visited here last week for lunch and had sandwiches and drinks. It is a mixture of rooms so it was a case of hunt for a table. Place orders at the counter. Staff were friendly and polite. Food was fresh and tasty but lacked a bit of imagination, a small side salad with the sandwiches would have made a difference. I would visit again.
