    First class meal - my daughter and i visited prior to attending a concert. A lovely restaurant in the city centre. Excellent food and service and I would thoroughly recommend a visit. Very good selection of food and drinks. My daughter mentioned to me that the chips (with her fish and chips course) were the best she has ever tasted!

    We came to Annie's to suprise a friend that we hadn't seen for a while for a birthday treat. The setting was outstanding and the afternoon tea was superb. Service was incredible - I had asked for for some sort of decoration and they didn't disappoint!! From start to finish it was an such a special treat! Thank you!

    Good service, food OK - hash starter very nice, fish and chips OK - could do with a few more mushy peas. The other dishes we had were really nice. will go again.

    I brought my mum here for afternoon tea for her birthday. The service we received was excellent. When I booked the table I mentioned it was my mums birthday and the staff had put balloons and a banner on the table and made it all so special for us. This was such a lovely surprise. The food was absolutely delicious with a gorgeous selection of sandwiches, cakes and scones. My mum is in a wheelchair and the service we received was outstanding. Everyone was so lovely and there was a ramp to get inside plus a lift to take us downstairs. I couldnt fault anything. We had such a lovely time and the staff were all fantastic. I will definitely be coming back and can recommend Annies.
