Have been eating at City Merchant for over 20 years and have got to say that we have never been disappointed. The food is always of a high quality and the staff are efficient, friendly and unobtrusive. We decided to take family for the 5pm lunch deal and were delighted to find that the choice and quality of food was not compromised in any way. Would highly recommend this restaurant and will look forward to our next visit.

Although quiet when we arrived, the restaurant became busy but still remained relaxed and friendly. It specialises in fish but has a good range on the lunch menu. The fish soup was deep and tasty; the ham terrine was a good portion beautifully garnished. The sea bass that I had was perfectly cooked and came with lemon gnocchi. Good sized lunch portions at an excellent price.

Having eaten here a few times in the past and really enjoyed it, I was looking forward to lunch the other day. Maybe we shouldn't have gone for the fixed price menu but that shouldn't mean disappointing food and portions. May be back but not for a while. Suspect that staff realised that I wasn't too happy and stayed out the way. Normally would have raised it with the boss but my lunch companion had decided to have a peaceful lunch and didn't want a stooshie so I bit my tongue.

Popped in for lunch today with my girlfriend. We didn't have a booking and on arrival the staff were very friendly and showed us to a nice table. We went for the set lunch menu which is £9.95 for starter and main. Lots of choice on offer and for the price it is an absolute bargain to be honest. Fish soup for me to start and my girlfriend had a crayfish and salmon salad. Both were perfect. We both ordered the dish of the day which was sea bream with sautéed potatoes, green beans and served with a garlic salsa. It was delicious and cooked to perfection. Great staff and food what more could you want highly recommend.
