Very good fish and chips!
Nachos to share were really nice as well!
Amazing mood in the restaurant! Loved it!

We’ve been here several times before : not sure what’s happened but would definitely avoid now. It wasn’t busy but we couldn’t get served for love nor money. We asked for a table; got one, then were ignored. Not just forgotten: ignored! Rude, poorly trained staff completely forgot us after they seated us / we left 25 minutes later. Go elsewhere - they are trading on an ill-deserved reputation!

Came for lunch with my son.
I was last here when it first opened as the bath street bar some 20 years ago. I don't think much has changed in the decor. Rather run down looking.
The staff were very friendly and helpful

I ordered 2 soup of the day for me and.my.son. however due to the fact the coriander hadn't been destalked correctly we found both of us spitting stalks out.

Massive changes will be required if the espy is going to challenge the other eatiries all around them that have a far better facility.

Overall enjoyable but perhaps as they "welcome " families there should be a children's menu ? If there is one we certainly weren't offered this despite having 2 toddlers with us. We improvised which was fine but would have been better had the grumpy waiter helped a wee bit more.

Always a pleasure to eat here. Lovely friendly staff, and the food is always interesting and varied. As it's freshly prepared a delay is fine especially if you have a window table.
Obviously greatly appreciated by dog owners too.
