    Is that what used to be Pastiche? I wasn't sure it had ever opened, glad it had, what did you have to eat?

    Yes it is. Its now a Cocktail Bar and Restaurant.

    My wife visited the week before for the bottomless lunch and was very impressed by the food and standard of service, so we booked on Sunday.

    During the week they offer a full menu, plus a tapas menu. On Sunday its the choice between a beef roast, chicken or vegetation option.

    I had beef and a desert of strawberry and lime cheese cake. Wow. Absolutely amazing food.

    I also visited the Judge and Jury for a pre-meal drink. Very nice too. They serve food too.

    I'm fairly sure that the one up Hanly and the Telford one both closed down pre-covid.

    After checking the Hanly one is still open, it's just Telford that closed.

    If it looks like a proper burger like the photo then fantastic, always good to have. We were pretty disappointed in Burger Priest, so a proper burger place is welcome.

    However if it’s like Big Bite where despite burgers being their main dish they’re selling wafer thin pieces of meat from Booker then no thank you

    Good luck to them. I used to love The Bear Grill so hopefully this new place will offer something similar.

    Christ they better be proper burgers then, none of that stuff some places are trying to pass off as gourmet.

    I miss Stacks…

    Market vaults was great for burgers, the bank house isn't too bad.

    They might want to employ a proof reader as well...

    Ah yes I had forgotten where they’re opening… is there actually anything open on that row of units other than this now?
