Been to The York at Broomhill a number of times with my Dad for lunch or with my mate Mat for the start of our Broomhill / Ranmoor / Nether Green pub crawl.
We all like the decor and staff are very welcoming. Dad and I both think the food is very good and fairly priced. We have now been there 3 or 4 times in the past 3 or 4 months, finding the staff and food consistently spot on.
I usually drink Guinness and it is not available, but a porter is sold and makes a pleasant change not like some I have tried in the past.
Booked a buffet for 20 people to celebrate my mum 's 90th birthday. This was set in the conservatory. The staff were friendly and efficient. The buffet was excellent value for money. A good time for all.
The Roebuck Tavern - what a class experience of beer, service and humour - how pubs should be. And the food was also very good. I wish the pub was in Devon where I live.
Take a visit early evening and enjoy a Guinness or two, great music on the jukebox, relaxed and it's got a vibe about it hard to find these nowadays. Congrats from a guy who knows what it takes to get it right.
Just been to Arena Square on 16th Jan 2011 and it was overpriced garbage.
£4.25 for chicken skewers - 3 tiny bits of chicken and pepper on a stick, obviously from frozen because the pepper was imprinted on the chicken. Burger and chips was just that with a dollop of bland, tasteless coleslaw, and about 8 chips. Burger from frozen - yuk. £8.99 for about 3oz of frozen chicken with a scabby piece of cheapo bacon on, with the saltiest over-processed bit of stuff they call cheese on.
Overall the worst food I have ever had presented by surly, disinterested people. Everything was from frozen and was so over priced. Also decor was cluttered and done on the cheap.
Please stay away from this place it's utter cheaply produced crap. Marks out of 10, -10. Not happy, Jam.
