This is the 3rd time I've been to Crust. This time the service was much better and the food was lovely. The waitresses were more friendly than my last visit and we were served quickly.

    pretty poor experience overall, first choice starter was not available even though it was still early evening, starters and mains both took an age to be brought to table, the starters were bland, mains did not arrive together, pizza's came first and were barely warm, burgers came later - was given different reasons for split mains by 2 staff, neither acceptable. when it came to the paying the bill the 'zapper' service was not working and then the credit card machine was not able to print a receipt - and the bill was very expensive given the quality of the meal

    This was my first visit, the staff were friendly and welcoming, the music wasn't too loud but I did have trouble hearing what the waitress was saying. The menus were very faded and almost impossible to read. For a starter I had garlic pizza bread which was beautiful, the pasta main course was excellent, for desert I had the new york cheese cake which I found a bit sour tasting, I asked for ice cream instead of cream which they did but for an extra charge. There was a nice selection of beers and wine to choose from. The prices were about average and I was pleased with the overall cost and quality of the food. I was surprised at how quite it was for a Saturday night though. The service was good and I enjoyed the overall experience and I would recommend .

    Excellent service given by very friendly and accommodating staff. Food is very good, of good quality and at a fair price. We had a lovely evening!

    We had chicken poppers and calamari to start. Both were very nice with a good batter. We both had burgers for main. Both burgers were good (and big) and with a large portion of fries. Which were nicely cooked and crispy. My wife had wine which she enjoyed and I had a mint choc chip milkshake that was very nice. We would have liked pudding but were too full. The service was good and friendly and the interior was nicely laid out. We used a Groupon voucher which was no trouble and made it even better value. We would happily go back.

    The restaurant had a great chilled atmosphere and the service was good. The burgers were amazing but the nacho's we ordered to start were really bad. If they had put a generous amount of cheese on them and put them under a grill it would have been lovely but instead it was cold and had a sprinkling of cold grated cheese in the middle. Overall we had a good experience though

    Several times a year we travel the 50round trip to have lunch here . Locally they probably have the best homemade burgers ever . Burger menu has been cut down with several favourites missing, but hey it makes choosing a meal a lot easier . I always have the burgers but the pizzas , pasta and salads look tasty .
    The restaurant is child friendly with a simple menu for little ones . The upstairs is offered given over to large parties ,but downstairs is comfortable and clean . Toilets are upstairs ,up a spiral staircase not ideal if you're elderly .
    Service has improved ,can be slow and sluggish ,paper menus have been greasy and torn in the past ,guess it depends on the management in charge .

    We will return often as the food is great and just take a chill pill with the service , not sure it would be the place to go if you're in a rush .parking is free around the corner behind lceland for 3 hours .
