We came after a long day at work, although the restaurant was busy we got seated quickly and the food arrived in a timely manner. The new menu has added a selection of different meals :) the pork belly and black pudding was beautiful.

My partner and I decided to have Sunday dinner here before playing snooker in the back bar, it was the best Sunday roast I've ever had eaten out, everything was perfect and tasty the service was quick and friendly and very reasonably priced. We would highly recommend a visit to anyone. Thoroughly enjoyed it .

I dined at The Venue during half-term with my 72 year-old father and my teenage son, who has severe learning difficulties. Although the decor and menu appeared, on first impressions, rather 'old school', I quickly realised that the service, value and quality offered by this venue are 'old-fashioned' in the best possible sense! Our server Caroline was attentive to my... More

As my previous and future reviews will dictate, I am more accustomed to finer restaurants than that of 'The Venue', however it is down the road from my girlfriend's house and was therefore the "easy option" when going out for a last minute meal. The menu was satisfactory, my meal not the best but by no means the worst. The... More

I’m sorry The Venue’s food was not up to your normal type of dining, and I’m sure when you next visit your girlfriend’s parents in the future you will be able to research the fine dining restaurants in the area. We offer live bands every Friday and Saturday evening, these play after the restaurant is closed, as we have a... More
