|The Office Restaurant and Bar|
|Back to ropewalks restaurants|
|We went to The Office one Sunday lunchtime in January when the square was deserted. It is not the best time to assess the atmostphere, but as the staff were only catering for seven people then it is a good time to assess the quality.|
|The restaurant is very large and impressively furnished. It is decorated in a modern style where ventilation ducts are highly visible. The bar is large and well stocked and facilities such as loos are excellent.|
|The most unusual aspect that makes this restaurant different is the oversize furniture with high tables and stools in the centre.
At the windows are huge tables and seating that makes one look like Tom Thumb.
|The food is typical Pub-Grub with no pretentitions to grandeur, but that is not a criticism as the quality is excellent and the quantities sufficient for the hungry customer.|
|The meals shown were £5.90 each and were hot when they should be. My steak and beer pie was excellent and it was served with frozen peas and frozen chips.
The Chicken Tikka Masala appeared to be white chicken in a sauce rather than chicken marinated in a tikka sauce, but it was very tasty although served with round grain rice.
While I would not recommend it as a gourmet meal, I am sure that after 6 bottles of 'Bud' The Office meals would go down a treat.
