    It was really cold in the front area of the restaurant. I asked if another are would be warmer but they said no. It never warmed up and I ended up wearing a coat almost the whole time there.

    My wife & I and our younger son who is visiting from Sydney dined in The Avenue yesterday evening, 29 December. We had a most enjoyable meal with starters, main courses, desserts, drinks and coffee. Service was excellent friendly but never overbearing. We would highly recommend The Avenue.

    We go to the Avenue a lot and love the burgers but this time they were not great they seem to have changed them to bought in pate type burgers not great. They used to be real mince. We will give it a miss for a while.

    We weren’t sat at the table we booked. The minute we walked in the waitress looked at her watch. We did have a late booking for 8.45 but the restaurant was open until 11.30 (they also accepted the booking). The whole time the waitress was cleaning the restaurant and it was hard to order a drink or get her attention. Really felt uncomfortable and rushed. Didn’t enjoy at all.

    This is a smashing restaurant. The food is always superb and the staff always go out of their way to make your meal an enjoyable one. Brought a newbie with us on this visit, and they couldn't get over what a great place it is. We ate in the new cocktail bar section on the high tables and had a great night. Thanks Avenue!
