Visited here and sat outside for a light snack with family members. They couldn't cope that well for 15 of us and although they advertised on there menu gluten free it turned out they were limited with choices. The pizzas were nothing to love so a return visit seems unlikely.

My wife and myself visited this restaurant this evening and was wholly disappointed by the food served to us..... I ordered a margherita pizza and paid £1.25 each for extra mushrooms and chillies, When this pizza arrived, the cheese was barely there, there was the equivalent of 2 button mushrooms and the chilli was nowhere near the expectations of a...

The waitress who served me is a very nice and lovely girl! I ordered toast salmon and panna cotta from the set menu. When the main course was served, it was not with the same ingredients mentioned in the menu. There were lentils, broccoli, spinach and wild rocket all kind of mixed together. This reminds me that once before similar... More

We had lunch here for my sister's birthday. The service was pretty slow. However I loved my scallop risotto. My mum's pizza was overcooked. But overall the food wasn't bad. We had the tastecard so not bad value for money.

Not very busy when we arrived, ordered drinks and food reasonably quick, bread starter fine, burger main arrived along with my chicken and mushroom dish. Burger was really burnt and hard, inedible, my chicken was really small and the meal was just OK. Waiter very apologetic. No toilet paper in one cubicle in ladies. Disappointed and would not recommend.

Strata has an extensive and varied menu. The staff were most attentive and well trained. The food is very good value for money. The biggest problem, as with many restaurants is the constant Muzak. Take a tip from M&S turn it off for good. You are doing your customers and staff no favours. Constant music like that can affect people's... More

The food was good, the ambience lively if a little loud for us but folk were enjoying themselves on a Saturday night in a busy part of town. Staff were excellent and dealt with a difficult alcohol related incident brilliantly and avoided it interfering with other diner's experience, well done. Our waitress was absolutely lovely and efficient.
