1st class food, service and cocktails were amazing! Have dined here quite a few times but on this occasion the staff chef and waiters excelled themselves. Just the right amount of time between courses.

Went for hen night in may and it was a lovely meal. Went back tonight and really poor food. The nachos were cold. My aunt had hake and actually now has a upset stomach. The Korean chicken batter was soggy and just not to our taste.

This was not the first time that me and my friends dined at the Northern Whig and as much as we can't fault the quality of the food, the service let us down in more than one occasion. Last night our table was booked for 5.30 pm, and we arrived 15 minutes late, so at 5.45. We were informed that we had the table only for 2 hours - standard procedure - and that the 2 hours would start from the time of booking, not from the time we had actually sat down, so till 7.30 - again, standard procedure, nothing unusual about that. What irked us was that the same waitress informed us that we only had the table till 7.15, so 15 minutes ahead of the scheduled time. No explanation was offered, only that they needed the table. I was already extremely irritated by this (and being this a birthday celebration, it kind of ruined the atmosphere for me), but what made it even worse was the lengthy waits for the food and the drinks. We asked repeatedly for drinks that never got served, only to show up at the end of the meal, when we should have got up. At that point we just refused to leave the table at 7.15 and sat down for another 20 minutes, in order to enjoy our drinks. The place wasn't even busy, so all the more reasons I cannot understand the rush for getting the table back, or the lacking service. You need to up your game big time.

Nice dining area, beside the much larger bar area, so it shares the feel but not the bustle! Tasty uncomplicated food, good-size portions and well-priced for an enjoyable meal in the city centre.

Despite speaking to 2 different members of staff prior to coming - no waitress was not aware of the the fact we had a Celiac. He had ordered nachos to start which I was told should be ok but were not available on the night. He was disappointed, otherwise food was good and everyone else enjoyed it. Felt the celiac was over promised (we were told: our chef is celiac so can sort anything) and under-delivered.
