4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

Good food, good atmoshphere, good value. A buzzy place with freshly cooked food. It's not Michelin stars but it's pretty honest good grub in a lively setting. Worth a visit to see the interesting picture of all the waiters in Austria looking out of the hotel window...

“Nice but not great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014 via mobile

This was a second visit to Flynns having had a fantastic meal just under a year ago. Like many things in life the return visit didn't live up to the memory of the first experience.
Really good service and nice atmosphere but the food was just ok. The sharing platter of fish items was however really good. There were 5 of us do we had 2 sharing platters and 1 calimari off the specials board. This set the scene for a good night as we polished off the lot with everyone enjoying the food. The main was however just ok. As a group we had the duck, sea bass, venison and lamb shanks. They were all ok and quite tasty however the school dinner style veg accompaniment was a let down. Desserts sounded appealing from the menu however the creme brûlée was split and the sticky toffee pudding only warm.
We did have a good night and the nice atmosphere and very attentive service helps however we did all walk away feeling disappointed that it wasn't as good as last time.
Is recommend it as a good venue for a night with friends even though good may be a bit hit and miss.

“Some good points, some not so good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

We had a dinner in Flynns for party of 4, sat in nice patio outside. All in all aprt from starters that were really nice the rest of the meal was very average. Service was ok-ish but needed to wait for several things and seemed like we were left by ourselves for longer than required. Heard a lot good things about the place and I'm sure they deliver on most of the days but our meal was a bit disappointing.

“Good food and wine!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

Visited here for lunch which was very good. Three of us ordered the club sandwiches which were huge and good value! One of the party had the two course deal with a glass of wine. We also ordered a bottle of wine. Meal came to around £60 which we felt was not too bad for four people!

Negative comment - we would have liked to have sat outside but heavy rain had just finished and everything was wet. Staff seemed a little reluctant to dry it off as we'd have to wait which we were happy to do but we got the impression they'd prefer us to sit indoors so we did.

Inside it had a nice atmosphere with good service over all. Not overly busy so we didn't have to wait too long for our meal. Would recommend this place and visit again!
