    " Visited the restaurant at lunchtime today 2/7/15. Whilst looking at the menu-board outside we were approached by the owner who checked if we were ok.

    We hadn't booked but asked if it would be possible to use our tastecard. He explained that the restaurant was currently busy but if we came back in half an hour he would be able to accommodate us.

    We returned 30 minutes later and the place was still busy but a few tables were free. The atmosphere was relaxed and the staff very friendly.

    As a vegetarian I normally have to settle for the same old, same old, but opted for the Sicilian Potato bowl. It arrived about 20 minutes later piping hot and was amazing. I'm still salivating now (8 hours later) just thinking about it.

    When we went to pay and mentioned tastecard the owner said "yes my husband warned me". At the time it seemed like an unusual comment but having now read the reviews where a couple of them refer to a "two tier service" I think they were making a conscious effort to ensure tastecard members are treated equally.

    Both mine and my husbands portion sizes were good and with a price tag of less than £10 for two mains and two soft drinks we will definitely be back again. Mine alone was worth that. "

    Went in for lunch, hadn't booked and place was empty . (2 adults 1 child). Was then told we had to pre book for taste cards , when we mentioned place was empty staff had to ask owner if ok. it was then decided we could stay.
    Food arrived after 40mins wait (salads), and dishes weren't that great after such along wait. Disappointing lunch , no atmosphere . "

    We went today for a lunch time date. We had pre-booked so advised this on arrival. As always the service was great and we ordered our drinks while deciding. The smoothie I ordered was fantasticly fresh, however the spring water we ordered was Aldi's at an astonishing £1.25 mark up! We asked for the steak after being advised that we could have anything off the main menu, however after going into the back and speaking to, I assume the chef,and mentioning 'taste card' she came back and advised there wasn't steak left so we decided to order the fish and chips. The presentation and taste was beautiful and fresh and tasty. The down side to this was, while we were still eating, fresh steaks were served to people who ordered after we had?!?!?! Hmmm maybe we were mistaken, then the lovely elderly lady next to us had her fish and chips served . . . the difference between the portion sizes was astounding, it looked like our 241 was 1 meal split between the two of us. Ok, so for £10.45 this was fine, but c'mon taste, that isn't what the deal is with our taste cards. We came away feeling like we had been treated differently, because in a nutshell we were. Not sure if we will visit again. "

    Myself and my wife visited Taste this afternoon for lunch, having seen that Taste had recently been added to Tastecard (we were the first customers to use Tastecard). We have been here in the past and had found the food to be excellent and very reasonable prices, and today the food was even better and was very cheap using the card!
    Everything is cooked from scratch and you can tell that a lot of pride is taken in the presentation. I can highly recommend the cod loin, a very generous portion expertly cooked with lots of lovely fresh veg. The cod melted in my mouth, very nice indeed.
    The staff are very friendly and chatty and make you feel very welcome.
    Highly recommended for a lunch, we will be returning, we're hoping they will start to serve evening meals too! "
