We had 3 courses and between 4 of us sampled different items from across the menu. All of us really enjoyed each course and would definitely visit again.

    Crust has a great style. We had the burgers that werends really tasty. The portions were a good size too. We are subscribers to Crusts website so we got one of the burgers for £1 which was a great deal. We were in a bit of a rush otherwise we would definitely have considered a starter or pudding. Or both. We have now got a loyalty card and will definitely be back.

    Food was really good and always has been, service could be better, very polite but took over 15 mins from being seated to be offered a drink

    Our recent visit to crust was generally pretty poor. The yellow benches upstairs, which I'm sure looked good on the mock-up, have just got dirty over the however-many-year the restaurant has been open, and they aren't pleasant to sit on knowing they could be a lot cleaner. The decor is mostly okay apart from the plethora of blurry, customer-sent pictures of various LADs/Chavs on the wall.

    Waiter was a polite lad, if a bit timid and straight-faced. Drinks came quickly but the lime soda wasn't mixed and the wine had to go back because of lipstick on the glass. Starters came quickly but the Giant Nachos would be better classed as Deep-Fried Tortillas... they taste, feel, and eat differently and weren't as nice as normal nachos.

    Mains took an AGE to arrive (after people who had ordered after us!) and were mostly terrible. Broccoli pasta was smeared around 99% of the lip of the plate in an 'almost-pathetic' (but not quite that good) attempt at presentation. The temperature of the pasta was tepid although the pizza was mostly fine.

    The bill was discounted in light of the food being cold and the wait being unacceptable for such a quiet time. But perhaps going to somewhere like this at mid-afternoon is a mistake. It's too quiet for the staff to think they have to work at 100%. If you're reading this, then you should take the other reviews into account since this might be an anomaly. But this was our first and final Crust experience.

    Can't recommend.

    The food was lovely as usual but hygiene has gone down the pan unfortunately. You could see it hadn't been swept anywhere and the carpet on the stairs had at least 2 weeks of crumbs and debris. My wife said the ladies toilet was pretty much the same with no toilet roll. The staff were all very young but helpful and pleasant.

    After a bit of a hiccup the the slow and inattentive service,the two managers and a young lady waitress endeavoured to put things right.The starters were hot ,well presented and tasty.The kids loved the milkshakes
    We then had to wait a while again for our mains,but yet again the food was good,hot and well presented.The staff were very apologetic for the slow service and conduct of our original waiter,of which he also came and apologised in the end.And to top it off we had a very very substantial discount on our final bill.
    Would we take our custom there again,yes we would....but their service issues need to be addressed,as this did let down what could be a wonderful restaurant
