    We were greeted as if we were family. We were shown to our table and given the menus. Water was served, we were asked if we wanted a pre-dinner drink. Our waitress took our order and it was only a short wait before our was served. The staff were most attentive without hovering, we were treated like we mattered. The food was served hot, on hot plates. The food was delicious and flavours balanced. We enjoyed our experience very much and will be back soon.

    Young and Foolish has become our go to Friday night favourite destination - as has our habitual choice of meal - the salmon with the beetroot, pumpkin and rocket salad - simply delicious, exquisitely cooked and beautifully presented. Highly recommend .

    Have been for pizza night a few times. The ingredients on the pulled pork pizza are a lot less than before. A bit disappointed. The other two pizza were still good.

    Chicken parmigiana was burnt. Lasagna had no taste. Ate because we were hungry after a long day and had no other option after 8pm. Would not go there again.

    This place was great! We had a booking of 8 and we all enjoyed our meal. Not a single complaint. Being a newly diagnosed coeliac it was so easy to get food I could actually eat and didn't taste like cardboard. we will definitely be back!! They wait staff were lovely and very easy to chat with. Little on the noisy side just as it was busy and lots of people chatting

    Young and Foolish has filled a void that existed in the Brandon Park shopping centre, and in the region more broadly. Whilst not especially adventurous, the menu has something for everyone and the food is fresh and well-presented. Highlights? Without doubt, the friendly but unobtrusive service and the coffee.

    I have eaten here once before and was keen to go back. Both nights that we went to this restaurant have been cold and windy outside so its rather cold when the door is used by customers. I had the platter for 2 as my main course. Rather delicious except the ribs were chewy and the popcorn chicken overcooked. The salad was a fresh taste to break up the fried food. I requested the sticky date pudding and wanted to know if it was served warm. The waiter said it was warmed. It tasted ok but it was not warmed and not enough sauce. I'm not sure if i will hurry back there again..
