This photo was a £9 burger. When it arrived it looked like it was missing something, to be informed that actually it was what "I" had ordered. It was the smallest burger I had ever seen and for £9 it definitely wasn't worth that, more like £4. Good job it was half price because wow it had the smallest piece... More

Popped in for a burger. Food was great and reasonably well priced. Restaurant area is distinctly quirky (and really good for that!). Beer was a little disappointing but my partner loved her G&T. Went to a gig later in the evening and this has to be one of the best venues I have ever been to (and I've been to... More

Always been a regular gig goer at Deaf Institute but recently tried their food. A wide and varied menu i was spoilt for choice but the burger i chose was excellent and arrived promptly. Friendly staff and great customer service, clearly the head chef is going a great job! Keep it up guys! Eduardo.

Really great venue for gigs. Absolutely beautiful! Sound was fab and place was quirky which is always great. Cloak room quite cheap. Drinks a little pricey but really enjoyed the place and music was great in the bar after the gig had finished.

Went on a Friday night with my girlfriend for food and drinks. The food was incredible and catered for my Vegan diet. I guarantee meat eaters would enjoy the Seitan Burger. There is a wide selection of Vegan and Meat dishes and there was a great Beer selection. The staff were friendly and helpful and the venue played great music.... More

Went to the Deaf Institute not to eat but to attend a gig in the small intimate venue upstairs above the restaurant and bar. Excellent live music venue - saw American country singer Canaan Smith. Good bar although prices are quite steep - £4.50 for a small can of larger. However, great atmosphere and there are some seats and a... More

Went here with a group of friends to watch a band small venue upstairs. There was a bar in the room some seating but mainly standing. Good place to see live music not far from the stage or bar anywhere in the room. Excellent night great value for money

Popped in at end of working week and delighted with the value during happy hour. Service a bit slow when cocktails ordered by others but staff friendly and capable. Burger and fries looked very appetising but I resisted by having another pint
