I go to varsity regularly with friends after lectures from university. It's only a short walk around the corner from central campus, it has a great atmosphere and you avoid over priced places on campus- whats not to like?! Food is always really nice, and its good value for money. I've been since the refurbishment and the place looks great- love the outside chiminea, and the lime/chilli salad dressing! Staff were friendly and attentive. Will be back for more drinks/lunches/dinners in the future!

We came here for our football get together after a refurb! The food was brilliant, filled us all up! There were plenty of lager, ale's and ciders for the lads to choose from.

The bar staff were friendly and the Assistant Deputy Manager came over to ask us how we were getting on and if he could get us anything! All of the food came out within 20 minutes, and nothing was incorrect or late! We were impressed with the cleanliness of the place as sometimes in bars it can be a bit grubby, but this was top notch! The Manager seems to have a good morale going as all of the bar staff looked happy and this was passed on to our group who stayed a few hours before heading off!

Will be coming back for more football nights out as I cannot fault the place!

Brilliant

Me and my friends came here just before getting our results from the university. Nachos were nice, but I could tell the burger wasn't homemade as the actual burger was bland (thank god the blue cheese sauce helped!) however, my friend ordered fish and chips, which was majorly overcooked and she really didn't enjoy the flavour of it. Also, Varsity is in a desperate need for a makeover, as there is a massive hole in the wall of the ladies toilets. The glasses our drinks were served from were dirty, which made it unappealing to drink from. Wouldn't go again, which is a shame as it is so close to the university.

Clue is in the name, right next door to the Uni so lots of cheap cheerful pub grub.with not much in way of salad and vegetables!
Service was friendly and very fast and food plentiful. Not fine dining by any means but good value.

No one around to send back my dinner after eating some of it and realising how undercooked the chicken was. Tasted like rubber and the peppers were like mush. Lovely bar and surroundings shame about the food. Apology from the waitress after saying most of my chicken was undercooked was that it was very busy so that's probably why. No excuse to serve raw food. Said she would let the chef know but never came back with any apologises or refund. Such a shame. Hope i don't get too sick!
