Serving up a fabulous small plate menu alongside our deli & No.1 Sunday roast. We pride ourselves on sourcing local ingredients - why not take a look at our menu and see what takes your fancy?

The Workshop celebrates the hospitality industry with a unique take on a small plate restaurant. Our ground floor wine bar offers 40 different wines. The wine list will take you on a journey across the globe, from the crowd pleasing to the not so readily available grape. All wines available by the glass. Matching this is our first floor restaurant, which has a big seafood influence, alongside vegetarian and meat dishes, helping to create our small plate menu.

Our busy bar also throws up a good selection of craft ales, fully stocked gin bar & not forgetting our cocktail menu. So call in and sample our family run venue with over 50 years experience in providing good quality food & drinks.

    Often reviews can vary due to expectations. And here I got disappointed from the start due to those expectation. I had look at the menu online and was really looking forward to trying some of the dishes. But the menu was totally different when I arrived and not that interesting. The food was ok, well it was nice. The atmosphere was a bit too noisy (music a bit too loud) for my liking, but we could still hear each other. But the service was fairly bad. All staffs were very nice and smiley, but one came and took the carafe of wine even though there was still some left in it and then another one started to pick up stuff put it on my unfinished plate and then asked if I was finished. I wasn't but it was a bit too late to ask. I went a bit out of my way to try this place, so i don't think I'll go back. I might have given them another chance if I was local. But I would wait for the next menu change.

    We had the roast dinner which was beautifully served, each individual item was well seasoned and so tasty! Plenty of it and served hot. Lots of gravy a big plus as I always find this lacking in most roast dinners. Will definitely be returning and would encourage anyone to go and try……..

    We had a beautifully, intimate table for two to celebrate 15 years of marriage. TWS is a local to us, small plates restaurant with a stunning menu and top class service laid out in a locally infamous, gorgeous industrial but warm and inviting setting. We were met by the beautiful Adele who talked us through the menu and told us about the specials which where truly mouth watering! She described perfectly how the small plates worked which was absolutely en pointe for us! We wanted a nice long evening together with a constant supply of food (and drink)! All the food was bought to the table superbly fresh and just as soon as it was prepared and cooked. Properly fresh and exquisitely prepared for our palettes! We decided on the mussels chowder, tikka cauliflower and pigeon Wellington as three of our selection of plates. It was such a difficult selection as all the choices were so tempting. The charcuterie and skin on fries sides were unreal! The offer of prosecco and specialist ale on arrival was too good to refuse and the wine which accompanied the rest of the meal was just gorgeous. Please come dine here if you are into faultless food, super service and brilliant bar selections, you will not be disappointed I guarantee xxxx

    Rude staff, obviously did not want kids in the restaurant (despite it only being 5.20pm) Website inaccurate and not updated with certain menus unavailable. Walked out without even ordering a drink. Hopefully new restaurant a couple of doors down will be more welcoming as this place needs a personality transplant and understand it’s not some 3 star gastro pub in the city centre. Worst visit to restaurant/bar my family has had in a long time. Could not get out quick enough.

    We all had the Sunday Roast for mothers day and it was so delicious. Every bite of it! I've been here many times for their small plates, which are also amazing, this was the first 'large meal' experience from them, and it was just unbelievably perfect. Honestly!

    Had lunch Friday afternoon. Service was excellent as was the food and wine. It’s always consistently good, whether day or evening. Menu changes regularly and some beautiful dishes. Pigeon Wellington was a first and was very good. Blackened Mackerel beautiful as was the Tuna. Try it, you’ll be hooked.

    Very very over priced dishes. Ordered fish of the day cost nearly £12 and it was a tiny piece of fish. Food is nice but certainly not value for money in respect of any of the dishes.

Can you provide more details 1. Why didn’t you rate it? 2. The time you visited 3. what you had 4. Why is menu not extensive enough? I will then be able to respond to your comments.

    Really nice staff although perhaps a little inexperienced. Dishes taken away while one of us was still eating, waitress interrupted by another staff member while she was talking to us. A major issue was the duck with cous cous small plate. My friend is coeliac and was told the dish was GF. However it had pearl barley with the cous cous and was definitely not GF. Staff very apologetic and provided another one without the bed of cous cous/barley. Rather expensive for small plates. Very small table for four of us too. But appreciate it's a small place and everyone is just trying to make a good living!

    We were seated upstairs which was lovely, very busy in the bar, so a little bit of a wait on the drinks but the staff were very apologetic and attentive and took money off the bill without us asking. We didn’t mind at all. Food was amazing as always. Can’t wait to go back.

    The service was lovely but the value for small plate portion sizes was very poor. Oysters were £13 for 3. That's almost £4 per oyster - which was ridiculous. The menu options were very limited for a small plates style menu. There were only about three options per section, fish, meat, sides, etc. The service was nice but I wouldn't recommend unless you want to feel poorer and hungrier than when you went in.

    Nice Venue quirky decent food tapas style cuisine or the same concept Went with my fiancé we had 3 small plates of food each and a desert expecting it to cost in the region of around £45 it came to £72 we didn’t drink any alcohol and would expect much better. Panoramic prices but with out the quality and glitz. My fiancé was shocked at the price we were charged
