I come here for lunch when I have lectures around that area. Friendly atmosphere, good drinks and tasty food. The good is quite heavy, but is great on a cold afternoon. And it has an outdoor area at the front and at the back!

The food was nice whenever we ate here. Not exceptional, but nice. It's fairly well priced as well. The only thing is, it can get busy during the day, particularly during the week and it's very loud when this happens.

I was impressed with my dutch homemade food. I opted for the veal and pork meatballs with sauteed potatoes and sweet red cabbage with red wine gravy. Compliments to the chef. Very tasty. I reccomend trying the dutch food on the menu.

Always enjoy coming here. Visited in the nice weather for the first time recently and didn't appreciate how lovely the beer garden was in the back on a nice day. Food was very tasty too. Look forward to returning.

We stopped in for a lazy bite to eat on a sunday afternoon. The weather was fantastic and so we sat on the terrace at the back of Kro with the kids. The food was excellent and the price was great.

If ever the mantra about 'location, location and location' rang true it's at the Kro Bar, a hipstery-style hang out on the main drag which is ideally placed for student meet-ups and hangouts. It's the obvious place to nominate for a rendezvous if you've got...More

Called a meal and a couple of beers before a gig at the Academy. Trendy open plan decor in old building which makes most of it. Good ales and food reasonably priced.
