Have visited Designate a few times and have always found the food to be hot and tasty - recently had a corned beef hash which was delicious. Staff are friendly and there is good buzz about the place. I have knocked a point off though as I find the shabby chic a bit too shabby - the mismatched cups and saucers are a nice touch, but my cup was chipped and cracked which is a 'no no' for me. Also didn't like the dirty boot/floral arrangement on the outside table. Yes its characterful, different and offers good food, but keep an eye on the level of shabby chic as it can be a bit off putting to certain customers!
