I can't think of any where else in Cabot Circus, or Broadmead that looks so unappealing. Chairs and seats are dirty and torn, the varnish on the tables is chipped. No doubt both the tables and chairs... More

As other places were busy when visiting Bristol we popped into this restaurant for our lunch and although everywhere else was busy there was hardly anybody here. Food was tasty. Not outstanding but not poor either - just average.

Good service here but it wasn't that busy so can't comment on what it's like when at peak times. We had two sandwiches and a coffee and the bill was over £20. Quality was good enough.

Nice teas and really good egg mayonnaise. Very accommodating when we wanted to just share one sandwich, which they served on two separate plates for us.
