I have been going here for many years but I am finding the portion size getting smaller but the prices going up. But the quality of the food has remained the same (average)

Nice quiet p;ace hidden away underneath the city centre. Good value for money and a big selection of food to choose from. The decor could use a serious upgrade and the waitresses could do with being a bit more happy to be there but apart...More

Used to go here years ago when a student. Basically just a big self service café. However, it is good basic and cheap food. WYSIWYG

We went there for breakfast last Sunday as it seemed cheap and had relatively good reviews. Well, even though it was cheap, I wish we had chosen somewhere else. The whole thing was extremely confusing - three different offers with different prices for breakfast and...More

I visited pillars on tues evening with my daughter and her friend. Although I have been many times before I was bitterly disappointed this time. I ordered the chicken curry which came out to me all drippin over the side of the plate wich went all over me! I also ordered a large glass of wine and was shocked to see the lady wash the glass out and just tip the wine in without even drying it so I had a wet yuckyglass! My daughter enjoyed hers but her friend was horried by her baked potato that was so hard Iif thtown at a window Iit would smash. I ended up having to order her more food which she enjoyed and ate. Making me think twice about coming here again seeing as I wasted money on food that wasnt eaten
