Lovely atmosphere, food was really good, good table service. We had to wait a little as our table was not ready but were led into the side bar which was very nice.

I have been to this place a few times to find the food satisfactory but very average. The chicken wings are nice Last time I ate here the service was slow and staff seemed uninterested.

I’ve visited the Avenue a few times for lunch and I was really impressed! Staff are friendly, there is a good variety of dishes on the lunch menu and it is really good value. Delicious food, would highly recommend!

I enjoyed a lovely lunch with a group of friends in Avenue. The choice of food was very good - a well priced menu with lots of variety and good a la carte options. Everything was tasty and the service was professional and prompt. I can see why this restaurant is always busy. I look forward to returning.

15 of us (3 generations) had lunch here on a Sunday afternoon to celebrate a family birthday. The food and service was very good. Likewise the ambience. It was a very enjoyable experience. We would definitely come again.
