The service and food was great and we had a very enjoyable visit. I would appreciate an option to have a smaller (half)portion of bread, as the racion portion was too large. A tapas size and price option would have been perfect to soak up the delicious juices without any wasted.

It was a take away, so ambience was really down to us. Food was ready when advised, friendly and efficient - did need to heat the food up slightly by the time we got home. Meat was very tender and cooked as requested. Veggie option was super tasty. Veggies and potatoes great especially the cauliflower and leak cheese. Different flavours than a traditional roast. Quite expensive, but huge portions so we had enough for 2 full meals, so great VFM. Definitely recommend

We ordered Venga’s Sunday roast dinner takeaway - lamb and beef - and really enjoyed the experience. Both meats were tasty and tender, the range of vegetables was very good and beautifully cooked. As for the gravy...... yummy (delicious cold next day) and a real homemade Yorkshire pud, too. A nice touch was the cauliflower cheese being put in its own container. Highly recommended.

We had the Sunday roast and it was amazing. Cooked brilliantly and the flavour was great plus there was plenty of food each (this was a take away meal) so it meant after enjoying it so much once the food had gone down from lunch I was able to enjoy a tasty mid afternoon snack. Will be having again and telling plenty of friends about it.
