Always experience very good service at the Emporium and the platters & pizzas are great. Also a good selection of beer with quick service at the bar.

We ordered wine and food after clearing our own table to sit down. Waited 30 mins for food and still no drinks came- we could see them on the bar whilst being ignored by our waitress. The drinks came after we got our food accompanied...More

Visited because it was ‘Jazz Sunday’ and we fancied something a little different. The music added to the atmosphere which was very pleasant indeed. We chose lamb from the Sunday lunch menu, but it wasn’t available. Second choice was chicken which was tasty when it...More

Not sure they do them. The top floor may be able to accommodate depending on numbers. The rest of the restaurant is over a few levels so your guest may be separated. Not sure what they would use for a dance floor - if that... More
