Preoccupied by smber spotting , no sign of my favourite @Mackem00 !
Got there at 6pm - really enjoyed it. Wife wasn't interested in the oysters, so I scoffed them all. Both had the chilli squid to start, and then shared seafood platter, finished with the lemon tart and 3 local cheeses. Bottle of Maota Bay Sauvignon Blanc with starter and mains + a Malbec with my cheese.
About 5 tables were occupied when we got in, but started getting busier just as we were leaving. Didn't seem to be staffed by students, which I guess given the term hasn't started isn't surprising.
Overall, 8/10. 2 points off as we were kept waiting to order our wine. Food was spot on.
Would go again.
We were in at 7 , had the same Sauvignon blanc - couple of small things like having to ask for missing food items but for £25 it’s class (plus 8 for oysters)
good to hear. hoping it starts opening properly soon. was worried it was going to go the journey
Haha. Had a fair bit on recently so never ended up booking. Looked class like. Pleased it's gone well. X
Thanks for the X , it means a lot
The soft shelled crab was superb mate. As was the squid. The dessert was superb too. The wine was canny anarl.
There was a lovely place like this in Hartlepool called the flagship, about 3 year in I found no students were working there n a little after it was gone.
Shame like, good idea, may try the sland one.
Edit: was expecting it to be on the outskirts somewhere, ideal on Park lane.
Treat my boys to the chicken shop there last night, dad of the year!
Alright lads. No need to rub it in ffs.
How did you find the soft shelled crab mate? Just for the benefit of @Mackem00
Was the best bit like absolutely immense
Shame @Mackem00 missed out then?
Check out the funny fellas being all funny.
Hope yous get the trotts.
I have had fishy smelling poos today. It was worth it.
Always quality food at the City Bistro.
What’s going on here then? Closed till further notice but offering Xmas menus from the 26th Nov?
Reading between the lines I would say it’s not open.
Hercules Poirot is on it
I thought they were getting a new kitchen manager in and revamping what they offered ? Not sure if that's still the case .
