I've just purchased a pulled pork panini,they're not cheap but they should be. If it says pulled pork as far as I'm aware it means there should be some in the sandwich! Unless I read it wrong and it was odour of pulled pork ! I don't mind people making a profit ,the cost of the food to the lounge... More

Great staff/ food/ ambiance but noisy. The now decades long fashion for all hard surfaces, coffee machines (v good coffee!) and piped music means almost all cafes are impossibly noisy. Aren't we due a change to carpets and soft furnishings??

Busy all evening. Value for money. Good food though we felt our chilli could have been a little tastier. A very relaxing evening.

Lounge, along with the Tobacco Factory and others, were key in turning the area into the vibrant community it now is. The food is solid, albeit not spectacular, and the service and atmosphere are always very good. It's a great, honest, place to come with a group of friends to relax, or to sit with a book, beer, and a... More

have been to this place a few times now and the food is always great, personally only been for breakfast or a brunch, never been there in the afternoon or evening. The service is friendly and quick and the ramshackle of tables and chairs kind of give it more character. The only downside i would say is there always seem... More

Went here for family brunch. It has a cracking atmosphere despite it being decorated in a predictable style with an array of cheap art work on the walls and old school furniture to sit on. Unfortunately the food and coffee does not match the atmosphere. Bland would be the most appropriate description. The ingredients used are not great and the... More
