I enjoy Montheiths beers but the food here tastes a little bland, been here a few times and had the same experience, not bad, but no the best. Need to work on keeping the moisture in meats and the crispness in the veges. Service good...More

The food was superb however the experience was spoiled by very bad service. The waitress couldn't even tell us what vegetables came with the meal. We ended ordering a side salad and then found the meal came with salad. A very long wait to pay...More

Wide select of beer and foods was very good. Paces was hoping but it did take a few minutes to be waited on. Wifi was wasn't the best but the city offers free wifi and at the octagon it was very fast.

We were handed wifi passwords when we ordered, but connection was not working and staff was totally indifferent and simply said. "Sometimes it doesn't work" No offer to reset modem or even pretend to be concerned.

Fantastic food at a very reasonable price. My husband had a melt in the mouth steak with lovely crispy chips. I ate chicken thighs layered with plenty of salad with an amazing apricot sauce. Excellent value for money too

Would have liked a few drinks and snack here mid afternoon on a Saturday. Sadly, no one was serving as the only girl on duty decided to continue her conversation outside with passing student friends rather than serve us. So we went elsewhere...

After spending an hour at Vault 21 and then going to this bar we were very disappointed. We sat outside to be told quite curtly if you not having food you have to order inside. Duly oblige and the same waitress who told us that...More
