My friend and I looked over the menu outside and decided to eat here for lunch. We ordered nachos to start which were ok and burgers for our main. I had the pulled pork burger and my friend had the beef burger - both of which were dry and the bun seemed stale. The service was ok but a bit... More

What a fab place first time in and decided to give it ago. We both had the burgers with curly fries stunning and a nice glass of red too. The ambience of the place was nice and our server Natalie C was very attentive and helpful. Would recommend in a heartbeat and will be back to sample the menu again... More

Popped into Walrus for a quick pizza today at lunch time. Food was great and the service from Rizzo was top notch.

Visited on a Wednesday night using a Living Social deal for pizza and prosecco. The pizzas are amazing - nice and thin and huge, too big to finish! They do offers on pizza during the week too. Good range of spirits and nice cocktails at the standard NQ price range, the staff were friendly and helpful too. Although the bar... More

Great midweek drinks with friends being served by Steve, who was chatty, entertaining and friendly. And does a mean Virgin Mojito, for any designated drivers...

Bouncers are absolutely disgusting !! Me and my group of friends went sober as anything and they were talking down to us like children. After a few hours we got told to leave because we weren't allowed outside, nearly leaving our friend on her own! It is nice inside but the staff let it down! Very rude and ignorant, wouldn't...

Was supposed to meet work colleagues here at the start of night out - Arrived stone cold sober but was asked by the bouncers "who was I with" after telling them who I was meeting, I was asked to text one of them to come outside, before I could go in - my female mate was asked a barrage of... More

We came in on a Saturday afternoon for a pre booked table. When we entered there was no direction as to where we went (it would benefit from a host stand). We stopped one of the waitresses who took us in to Tusk and after speaking to her colleague she asked two people to vacate a table for us! No... More

Came here with some friends for lunch food and drinks. We all ordered funky chips which were disappointing, yes they were cheap but still not really worth the money. The service was slow also. This place would be best for some drinks and would come back for that.
