As William street locals, we are really impressed with the New Melville Bar! The place has a lovely atmosphere as soon as you walk in and a great, friendly team. We had the pleasure of meeting the chef, new managers and a few members of staff and it's really nice to see a team of people so passionate about what they are doing and creating something great for the locals and the area. The food is out of this world - absolute quality! We really recommend it & will definitely be making it our regular local from now on!

Stopped by The Melville on Thursday and was thoroughly impressed. The place has recently been through a comprehensive refurbishment and is now a very modern, high-end spot for drinks and food. In particular, the food was fantastic and really high quality, and the service was very friendly. I would definitely return.

Went here with the girls from the office for the obligatory Fat Friday. Place is unrecognisable after a brilliant refurb! Menu has a good selection and a tapas style section for those looking to try a bit of everything. Prices were higher than I would expect for this part of town - I had the burger at around £9-10 which was delicious but much much smaller than you would receive for a similar price in many bars close by such as Sygn, Indigo Yard, etc. Great for those in the William Street are looking for a local but I wouldn't venture here if coming from further afield, you can get more for your money elsewhere. However, this wouldn't put me off going back, I would definitely try it again.

Went here on a Sunday - good menu...until it was revealed that the Sunday specials were all that was available. Still a good choice tho - roast looked good, but chap next to us said it was a little chewy. I had very good parsnip soup with a deep fried Stilton cube. Pan fried coley with butternut squash sauce and roast potatoes also very good. Worth a visit but a little pricey.
