Went twice on Groupon deal, but if I were local I'd go anyway. Nicely-cooked starters, pizza too big for one, good burgers. Never managed a dessert. Staff really friendly and nice. Drinks menu (beers) nothing special and not great prices for ther area.

    Modern environment, however extremely cold upstairs, had to eat with coat and scarf on- no heating in upper dining area.
    Served wine in a dirty glass.
    My husband ordered the nachos for started, which were burnt and tasted burnt. The calamari starter was extremely chewy.
    Main course- prawn and smoked salmon tagliatelle was not nice, salmon tasted off! My husband had a burger, which was verging on raw.
    Drinks reasonably priced.
    All in all very disappointing meal. Will not be returning.

    Booked table downstairs but one not available when we walked in. Food good. But chip portons too big.

    In our arrival at Crust the staff were unaware of our booking and looked exasperated by our attendance. They did however offer us a choice of the vacant tables upstairs.
    We were immediately informed the the restraunt was very busy and that there would be an hours wait for food. We ordered drinks and knowing that we would have to wait a long time for our main courses we also ordered some bread and olives as a starter. Our drinks arrived excluding the table water requested and a cocktail which wasn't the one ordered, as the the staff seemed to be under considerable pressure we did not raise any concerns about this. Having finished our first round of drinks and waiting a considerable amount of time for the appetisers to arrive my partner went to order more drinks and get an update on our order.
    He was informed that our starter order had not been processed and that our main courses were almost ready therefore he accepted a free round of drinks as a gesture from the manager for not receiving a starter and we awaited the main courses.
    The main courses a Big D and dirty cow burger arrived shortly afterwards and the waiting staff explained that although the dirty cow should come with gravy there wasn't any.
    The food was delicious and the staff attentive although flustered. Unfortunately the poor service led to us having a dissapointing experience which was partly rectified by the manager taking 50% off the bill.

    First visit as booked on groupon - website images gives false protrayal
    Dissappointed but very basic so shouldn't of expected any different once inside.
    Young kids hosting / although not busy, god forbid
    Long time to wait for drinks and food and to be told after partner had already been served and ate his stater they hadn't got what I had chosen so had to re choose and rewait!!!! Calamari overdone also burger
    No communication very laid back approach
    Not staff fault should be better managed.
    Even when leaving bill still at full price voucher not been inputted
    Not lost much just felt could of been better glad didn't pay and go normal
