Visited a few months ago and didn't bother with a review but when a friend asked if I'd go there again and i gave a very definite ' no' , thought maybe i'd write this.

The food is ok, not great but quite cheap and portions are a good size so good value for money. Actually if i were the owner i'd put the prices up a bit and use the extra to buy some new cutlery, tablecloths etc and at least get some new menus printed. The ones on our table were pretty grubby and well thumbed, not nice! It felt more like a cafe than a restaurant - i'd go there to eat if i was really hungry but not for a night out. It's a shame as it could be so much better!

We were a group of 9..While eating our main course, the serving staff, who were no more than 2 meters from our table, started emptying cutlery from the kitchen dishwasher into the restaurant serving trays. The clattering was loud and distracting and really spoiled our evening. I complained about the noise, but they didn't stop. It was only 9.30pm so not as if they needed to try to kick their customers out so the staff could go home. Obviously No Tip.

This is a regular haunt for us. The menu is varied - there is always something new to try. The value is excellent and the service very prompt. Can be a bit noisy sometimes, depending on how many large parties are there, but still worth it.

Fine dining it is not; but where else can you get 3 courses - cooked nicely, served efficiently, generously portioned, at a perfectly adequate standard, with wine, for well under £20? Full marks for this neighbourhood 'jack of all trades' restaurant which always leaves you with a good feeling. Pleasant people giving real value for money. You might say, "Why would you cook at home when The Boulevard can provide for such a reasonable price?" For what it is - first class.

A real good mix of meals and very good prices. Clean, friendly place. We all enjoy the visit. Would like them to sell cider but apart from that, the place is excellent.
