We (two of us) booked this "blind", we were going to as show at the Assembly Halls and this seemed a reasonably short walk.
We ordered the Col. Nathan Jessop burger which was terrific, quite spicy and terrific flavours. On the side we had the parmesan fries.
No starter or dessert and were still pretty full, didn't finish all the fries.
My wife had a cocktail (Gin and mango basically) followed by a glass of wine, I had a cider, tap water was also offered free; meal came to just under £50 in total; service charge was not included and totally optional.

Highlights:
- Wine was £5.50 for a decent sized glass; not the usual £8 ripoff.
- Music was reasonable selection, not booming cr*p, not too loud!

Lowlight:
- Service was really slow, I don't know if it's a strategy to get you to drink more or shortage of staff. It was 10 minutes before offered a drink, another 10 minutes to take order, probably 15-20 minutes before food arrived. After 65 minutes we discovered we had 15 minutes to the start of the show and it became a real rush. A shame as we were quite relaxed.

PS from leaving the table we were seated at the Assembly Hall balcony 10 minutes later, but we did walk fast!

We will eat there again, but allow more time.

Maybe with puddings needs to state that they are sharing sizes? Because they’re too big one person 😂

Had a lovely evening with family as they recommend woods. The burger wet so yummy, service was a1. Only downside was the music was so loud we had to shout to each other over the table that was not nice!also there was young children in there putting there hands over there ears😢 The waitress was so good to turn it down twice but apparently her manager kept turning it back up!

Music was just too loud, even though they turned it down.
You simply have to shout at each other.
Which made the restaurant even louder.
Food is excellent and staff are really lovely.

I take issue with ANY restaurant that makes you order your fries/chips separately to the burger.

The blue cheese sauce is more of a blue cheese flavour mayo.

The food was nice. The offer of gluten free alternatives was welcomed however the gluten free bun was pretty awful and didn’t warrant being charged extra for. The staff were friendly and attentive however the hours wait for our food left us questioning whether we would come again
