    It was awful -like going to a Wetherspoons pub. Service wasn’t great, drinks were not good and we didn’t stay for the food.

    The Bar is conveniently placed 50 paces from Cineworld on the Waterfront so convenient if you are visiting the cinema. There is a varied a la carte choice. I had the falafel burger which was unfortunately too big for my appetite, but well presented. My friend had the tasty prawn curry. Service was excellent.

    Menu has cut down since we last went. Had the piri piri chicken but with the king prawns. Needed those as the sauce isn’t hot enough alone.
