I took my brother and sister-in-law for lunch yesterday. I've been going to Housman's since it opened and have always had lovely food and really good service. Yesterday was a disappointment. When we arrived, on time for our reserved table, we were completely ignored for...More

Welcoming bar/restaurant with a nice 'feel' to place. Quite an extensive menu but it did seem rather confused, offering dishes from all over the place. We went to try the grazing menu with tapas style dishes and were not disappointed. Staff efficient and friendly.

A large empty corridor feel to the bar/restaurant, badly needing crowds of people to make it friendlier/cosier. This was Thursday lunchtime, and at 12.30 it lacked a warm atmosphere with only a few diners scattered about. The decor was attractive and interesting, and the toilets...More

Creative menu that delivers great tasting food. The only downside is the ambient noise can be very loud especially if people are stood at the bar drinking

We stopped here on a visit to the area. We chose Housmans as we liked the sound of the food, and there was plenty of room inside the restaurant for us, and our daughter in her pram. We had the 'tapas' menu with a selection...More

Informal style restaurant & bar with an a la carte menu changed three times on average each week, together with a selection of tapas style grazing boards. Wherever possible local fresh ingredients are used and we buy our meat from local butchers.
