The Grind is one of our favourite places for lunch. You’re made to feel welcome as soon as you walk in the door, staff are friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The interior of the new venue fantastic which just adds to the experience, great atmosphere and buzz about the place. Great amount of drinks options from soft drink to wine and spirts and good quality coffee. The food can’t be faulted, always very well presented, good quality produce and great flavours. Every time we go it’s hard to choose what to order as the menu is descriptions make it difficult to choose just one, I suggest keep going back and order something new each time!

Overall excellent experience at The Grind Bar & Kitchen. We had some friends visiting and decided to try the new venue, and everything including the food, drinks, service and music was spot on, couldn’t fault a thing. We will definitely be back

This was our second time visiting and the food was unreal. It was very busy and orders were taking a little while to come which was understandable. Some of the staff were a little inattentive and preoccupied with keeping up with the pace that they twice walked away while we were ordering. Again this is understandable, but some extra staff on the ground would have took the pressure off. Otherwise the food is incentive and was cooked to an excellent standard and we will be back.

We had a great meal at the Grind. Only points to improve is that we waiting a little while for someone to come and take our food order and then we waiting 45 minutes plus for our food to arrive, which was a bit long considering we were on a lunch break with work. Apart from that, amazing food and place!

Loved the new look and it's great that there's more space for more people. None of my party was overly impressed with the food. The mushroom bruschetta wasn't as nice as the previous creamy mushroom dish. The crusts on the toasted sourdough were so hard you couldn't cut them. The bacon was a bit tough.
