Wonderful from start to finish as always! The food was amazing, your staff were wonderful and the wine went down a treat.

Very pleasant. Previous visit was very busy and hard for waiting staff to cope. Quieter this time, and our soft-spoken waitress was really good, even managing our row about who should pay!

From the moment we were greeted at the door we were well looked after! After we were greeted and a member of staff introduced himself then letting us know the specials and who would be looking after us! Perfect time between courses and the food!!.. Just go and experience it - you will not regret it!

The staff could not do enough for us, very professional and friendly. Particularly liked how we were greeted at the door and lead to our table. Great value for money too. Would have loved a vegan option or two on the menu.

The food in Alfie’s was good but the attitude from some of the staff was disappointing. The man that showed us to our table rolled his eyes when I said I had a table booked and told him my name. He said he left a message on my phone earlier, I explained that I never got a message and asked what it was about. The man said that it didn’t matter now as we were here. I asked for a second time what the message was and he told me to forget it (with a sigh). The same man took payment from me at the end of our meal, he was rude in manner and seemed annoyed when I said that I would like to pay with a card. Even though the food we ate was good and great value, We won’t be going back.

Great evening. Food is a little expensive considering what’s on offer but I got the Chicken Burger and it was lovely. I ordered a whiskey sour and it wasn’t great so I switched to G&T’s and they were very tasty!

Hi I went to Alfie's for first time on Saturday we got a lovely table, starters was excellent the chicken wings. The main course potions were the smallest portions I ever got in a restaurant the starter was bigger we were very disappointed with main course portion . The Apple Crumble was excellent. Alfie's is a lovely Restaurant But will never go back because of main course as we did not get what we paid for.

I went to Alfies for the first time on sunday, to be honest i wasnt expecting much as it was very reasonably priced but it exceeded my expectations. The Staff were really friendly, they were very chatting and professional, they explained the full menu to us, we went for the 3 option meal which is fantastic value. The food came out really quickly and was delicious. If you are ordering from the menu its quite small portions so it was more of a lunch than a full dinner which was perfect for us. But i did see the other menu portion sizes and they looked huge, so i would imagine you can go with either menu depending on what you are looking for. The overall look of the restaurant was lovely and really clean with a great atmosphere. I would definitely recommend it, and will be back again.

IV been to Alfie's a couple of times. I enjoyed it. But this time my food wasn't as nice. My Pasta chorizo was way too saucy it was very sickening. Also the wings weren't as nice as before. Didn't enjoy the meal at all. Although atmosphere was nice and we had couple of drinks which was nice. Not sure if I'll return again

We were eventually seated downstairs, the restaurant was very noisy, we got bad seating beside kitchen entrance, ignored by passing staff and the house cocktails were very small and not sure if there was much alcohol in them. Maybe we caught on a bad night but not sure if I'd go back.

Front of house staff were really pleasant and dealt with us well, but it seems that the chefs were a bit too keen to get home- leaving before our dessert was served. The waiter that showed us to our table noticed that we had been sitting with clean dessert spoons for over 30 mins and went off to find out what had happened. In realising that the chefs had gone home and forgotten about the order, he prepared the dessert himself and brought it over- he was really very nice and very apologetic so we didn't mind, but wouldn't have been good had we been in a rush. We were sat near the front downstairs and the only complaint was that it could be noisy at times with people 'merry' from the bar upstairs clambering up and down singing at the tops of their lungs whilst they made their way outside for smokes. If you want a quieter table I'd suggest down towards the back. Otherwise food is really tasty in here and you do get good value for money, so I will be back.

A friend and I popped in a week ago, looking for somewhere to eat, was so good that I had to bring another friend the next week. Made the booking online, it was really easy and I was delighted at how easy it was to update the booking when our plans changed.

We had the wings and nachos for starters, they were delicious, only disappointing they don’t do them in larger sizes so you could have them as a main. All of the food is really great and the cocktails are amazing, best strawberry daiquiri I’ve ever had.

Had the satay chicken, the sticky rice is delicious.

The atmosphere was amazing, the service was the best compared to other restaurants. The only problem would be the food went cold faster than I expected, the mash with the steak didn't though, even though the steak and garlic bread went cold fast they still tasted amazing. Would definitely recommend this restaurant to a friend and will be paying another visit to the establishment in the near future.

I was here the weekend. This was my 2nd time here. The first time I was here was about 3 weeks ago and the food for both myself and boyfriend was gorgeous. The second time however it was a let down. I really expected more from the food considering it was so good the first time.
My boyfriend said his burger lacked any flavour and my dish for dish that had chicken had barely any.
The staff however were lovely and extremely nice.
The cocktails are gorgeous too.

Place was nice and had a good atmosphere. Service was slow. Bad value for money, the food was basic and overpriced and chips were soggy and undercooked. Cocktails are good but overall not happy with my experience at Alfie's.

I’ve ate in Alfies on a few occasions but I was really disappointed with both food and service on my last visit.
The mini tower burger was really tough and over cooked. It tasted so bland. The chips were made up of small crispy bits, it was like the end of a batch.
Nobody came near us once served and we were not asked if we wanted dessert or coffees. If offered we would have ordered them.
It was so hard to get anyone’s attention to ask to pay the bill as staff kept walking by but couldn’t get their attention.
