Slug and Lettuce

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "A new favourite"

Quote:
Another restaurant that I have only just been to for the first time recently is the Slug and Lettuce, the branch in Lincoln to be precise. I had always thought that this was a chain that was extremely expensive for what it offered but after actually looking at the menu outside, it would seem that I was wrong. The day of my visit here was for the first England match of the Euros so staff were walking around in very short shorts and England t-shirts. I understand that people want to be patriotic but I really thought that the way that staff were dressed was quite inappropriate. I certainly didn’t feel comfortable being served by someone with shorts only just covering their bum. However, once ...Read More

Frankie & Benny's Nottingham City Centre

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "My first trip to Frankie and Benny's"

Quote:
On our last meal out of the university year, my flat mate and I went to Frankie and Benny’s. My hometown of Grimsby doesn’t have a branch and even though I have lived in Nottingham for 2 years, I had never been. My flat mate decided that this had to be changed. As we went to eat before going to the cinema, we chose from the lunch menu. As we entered the restaurant and stood waiting to be seated, I noticed that the restaurant was quite quiet. Even so, it took quite a while for someone to come and seat us which I didn’t think was very good. Once we were finally seated, our drinks order was taken which was brought over within a couple of minutes. As we were sat sipping our cokes and looking o...Read More

Steels Corner House Restaurant

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "Serves the best fish and chips!"

Quote:
Steels Cornerhouse Restaurant is most probably the best fish and chip restaurant I have ever been to and it is definitely the best you will get in Cleethorpes. As Cleethorpes is the neighbouring town to my home town of Grimsby, it does take a little while for me to travel all the way to Steels but it is worth it. The restaurant is in the center of Cleethorpes so if you’re getting a bus it is only a short walk away and there is also parking just outside the restaurant. I recently went back to Steels for a family meal/ to show my boyfriend what real fish and chips was like and we went on a Saturday night. Although we have been going here for years, we had no idea you could book in advance so...Read More

Nando's

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "Mmmm.... chicken!!"

Quote:
Every time my boyfriend and I go out to eat, we always end up having to wait for a table. It doesn’t seem to matter where we go and lunch at Nandos in Norwich was no exception. We chose to have lunch quite early as we knew that we were going for an all you can eat Chinese later on that evening so we got to Nandos at just before noon. The restaurant was packed. The whole seating area was looking pretty full as we walked in and there were already a bunch of people waiting to be seated before us. Still, the waitress told us that it would only be a 10 minute wait and she took our names, gave us some menus and showed us to a seat for while we waited. The people waiting before us got tables real...Read More

Riverbank Chinese Buffet Restaurant

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "All you can eat in Norwich"

Quote:
During my weekend in Norwich, my boyfriend and I met up with two friends who live in Cromer. They came to stay at the apartment with us on the Saturday night and we all went out for an all you can eat Chinese meal at the Riverbank Chinese Buffet Restaurant. The restaurant is only around the corner from Norwich train station, a 5 minute walk maximum and it is also right near a strip of clubs/ bars. As we went on Saturday night, I thought that this would make it really loud and annoying outside but I didn’t experience this at all. As we got to the restaurant, we told a member of staff of our reservations and we were led to the till to pay for our meals which we obviously hadn’t eaten at this...Read More
