Summary

“A magic place that just gets better” – Paddy Byrne and chef Tom Gill’s two-year-old factory conversion is a reincarnation of their landmark former venture, the Everyman Bistro next door – so is almost as handy for the theatre. There’s “cheap and tasty” Med-based food, “charming staff”, and “a lovely garden too”.

Summary

“Paddy Byrne and chef Tom Gill have worked magic at this converted factory” – a “casual and pleasant” haunt set within a stage-whisper of Byrne’s legendary former venture, the Everyman, and benefitting from a not dissimilar formula of “cheap, tasty, Mediterranean-style” small plates and full meals. “The wine is drinkable and fairly priced, the ambience is cheerful – what’s not to like?”

Summary

“Paddy (Byrne) goes from strength to strength” at this “little gem” – a “good approximation of the original Everyman bistro, run by the original owner, and just next door”. While the excellent “buzz” is similar, he “has really improved the food”“quirky” small plates offering “quality but without the fuss” – and this time there’s a garden too.
