This was our first time here. The food was excellent, and we really cannot complain about anything. It was good value for money. I would only be slightly negative by saying the waiter filled our wine glasses up very quickly and emptied the bottle before any of our food had arrived. There were 4 of us, none of whom are big drinkers, and I would prefer that he had not done this. We were not going to order another bottle although the waiter almost presumed that we would. One other thing is that the restaurant was full and super noisy so be prepared for this.
Overall a good experience.

Everything 5 star apart from the noise
More soft furnishings would help the acoustics

Good food and service, it was the first time this year we have eaten inside and it was very noisy, not that the restaurant was full, it’s the acoustics

Our second time at Escape and it's just lovely. The staff are all friendly. The food is delicious with excellent portion sizes. They even gave us a complimentary glass of prosecco for our anniversary which was a very thoughtful and generous gesture. 100% would recommend!

Halloumi Salad! Awful, sour taste due to salad cream cooked on it. Could not eat it, Lasagne did not look appetising, told it was not the best, not the worst. Fries tasteless... takeaway food.

Really disappointed.

Recurved nicely, especially outside are, glass covered area.

What a shame ! 😔

Gorgeous food and really quick service. Waiters were so friendly and accommodating and checked in on us regularly. The food was as amazing as always! Starters were delicious and when we couldn't decide between cheese or tomato garlic bread the waitress said she could do half and half for us to share. Mains came quickly after and they even boxed up my leftovers to take home. Dessert was also delicious, we went late on a Sunday so a few weren't available but the Sicilian Lemon Cheesecake was amazing! Fairly priced for the quality too, will definitely be returning and recommend to everyone!

Kids food was what I call proper food not fried nuggets/chips etc but they loved it. Delicious steak and risotto too and nice puddings. Was a bit noisy but not so much that it spoiled the evening. Staff were professional.

Disappointed in the service. Wasn’t greeted on arrival in a friendly manner. Once seated expected the menus and to be offered a drink; instead, we had to flag a waiter after 15 minutes. Not the friendliest of staff.

I booked a table for my sisters birthday, 2pm on a Monday afternoon, it was very quiet 4 tables occupied inside to be exact. We sat inside but there is a lovely covered area outside with plenty of outside seating should you book on a nice day
The restaurant itself is stylish with a minimal modern feel, it is spotless and the smells coming from the kitchen which has an open appearance for the diners was very nice indeed! I think if I can say anything about the decor it could have benefited from some soft touches such as a few large plants in certain places and maybe some art to the walls, just my thoughts.
The menu is really varied with plenty of choice and so many wonderful dishes, including gluten free and dairy free options which one of our guests found really nice as it can often be a very limited choice for her particular dietary requirements, the food was really well presented and generous in quantity and all our dishes were very good indeed, my sister was treated to a complementary desert with candles and decorated with a happy birthday message which was a lovely gesture and unexpected from the restaurant
The staff are polite and very friendly and nothing was too much trouble, we will definitely be visiting again soon and I can highly recommend you try Escape you won’t be disappointed, lovely restaurant, wonderful food and great staff….. and free parking!
