    We absolutely love coming to Avenue when we get some time to ourselves away from the kids. Your Head chef John is highly talented the food is always spot on, your restaurant is lucky to have him, and it's safe to say I have never had a bad meal. Presentation and taste is 100% and we look forward to coming back again and again. The service is always brilliant too with very attentive and helpful staff!

    The food and service was excellent! The nachos in particular were delicious. Unfortunately we were seated near two large groups and it was very noisy. But I would definitely go back again, perhaps later in the evening.

    Food very disappointing. Service casual and less than attentive. Starter arrived before we got our drinks. My dining partner found her main course inedible. We ate upstairs - lighting unduly dim. Noisy and not in a good way. Wooden floors badly need to be refinished. Terribly disappointing.

    Brie on menu - all gone Sister ordered steak Med - came out well done. waiter indicated if she wanted a dif one there would be a wait. she opted for a replacement and it came back RARE/RAW. its currently in my fridge for the dog. We had along wait to re order drinks and it seems the end of the evening is v rushed as it felt like staff just wanted to go home. overall a disappointing experience having dined there previously

    We had a lovely time for a birthday dinner. We had a couple of requests that were no problem at all (downstairs table for buggy, happy birthday for Grandad!), staff couldn’t have been more pleasant, and food was delicious. Bailey’s coffee in particular was my highlight! A tad on the expensive side but no different to anywhere else in the current climate.
