My boyfriend surprised me here for my birthday on Saturday as we had previously dined here a couple of years ago.
The setting is great as it is an old prison so very interesting.. recommend walking down the corridor to see an original cell!
We had the Big Brunch menu and the deli style starter was lovely (However not as good as the Malmaison in Liverpool). For main we ordered roast beef which was very disappointing - the beef was very raw and the only veg we got was cauliflower and red cabbage... NO GREENS?! Gravy was very thick and sickening. When I asked for the beef to be cooked more it came back tasting of charcoal. We also asked if there were any other vegetables and the waitress returned with a few carrots... still no greens!
The pudding was delicious however and we did get 2 free glasses of bubbly to celebrate my birthday. The waitress was brilliant - she was funny and charming and worth the service charge!
Would revisit again but not for a roast dinner!
