Great menu offering plenty of choice for meat eaters, vegetarians and vegans. I had the vegan jackfruit burger which was really tasty. Friendly staff and quick service despite it being a busy evening.

It's a local for me but a goody. Ocho have recently upsized so there is plenty of space for dogs, buggies and games 👌🏼 Great staff and a large menu make it somewhere you want to stay all day 🤗

Just updating from a previous disappointing experience following the opening recently. Much better experience this time - music at a background level now so you can have a conversation whilst enjoying the ambiance. Can easily recommend - service etc excellent!

So disappointing ....... surely hot food should be just that ..... I appreciate salad can be cold but the rest of the food should have been hot ...... but it was cool . A change of venue should not indicate a change in standards.More
