Visited The Mint on Saturday with some friends and had the meal deal that is on just now. The food was very nice and the portions are huge. It was very busy on the night though we had booked for 8-30 and never got served with our first course till 9-20, they did apologize and gave us a free bottle of wine. Have been to the restaurant on many occasions and the staff are very friendly and are willing to do anything to help.
Visited last night with my wife. We had a lovely meal (fillet steak for me and the cod risotto special for my wife) and the service was very friendly and efficient. I particularly enjoyed their new cocktail "Grounds for Divorce"! We will be back soon for sure.
Went here recently and was thoroughly disappointed. The food was overpriced for the quality and we had to send 2 dishes back, one undercooked and one practically charcoal. Will not be paying a return visit.
Took my kids into the Mint yesterday making use of the kids eat free offer that they do during the week. I thought the food was lovely and great value, especially with this promotion on. I will definitely be back very soon!
Had dinner in The Mint on Saturday with my husband and some friends. Hadnt been for a while and I'd forgotten how good it was. My dinner was lovely. I had chilli nachos for starters which were really good and the peppered chicken for my main course, which I loved. The portions were huge and the staff were really friendly. My husband and friends loved their meals too. We'll definitely be back soon.
Took the family during the summer holidays to the mint. Just have to say that we had a wonderful time, service was excellent and the food matched it. An added bonus was the kids eat free offer which is on during every school holiday. All in all a very enjoyable experience and will be returning soon(without the kids)to have a go at the cocktail menu.
We were at the Mint with a table of 9 for a birthday celebration - not good! 7 of the table had given their drinks orders a good 10 minutes before the last 2 arrived and the last 2 got their drinks first! Service awful. The place was very busy and I just think they take on far too much. The plates weren't warm when the meal did come and I had pasta which had lovely raw relatively large pieces of garlic through it. Not nice at all. I have never been a fan of the Mint and really didn't want to go but the majority won. Will never go back to the Mint and certainly would not recommend it!
When the Mint first started serving food on a large scale, I thought that it was excellent but on my last few visits it has not been as good. It isn’t that the meal is really bad but it always seems seems that there is one problem or another. Wrong starter is sent, a drink is forgotten, one persons main course is cold. Staff are good when they can be bothered but at other times are more interested in talking to each other than checking if you are alright. Prices are okay and set lunch is good value and all in all it is an okay place for lunch, but don’t go if it’s a celebration as you may be disappointed.
I love the mint, you can go for lunch in the conservatory and get reasonable pub grub (i love the chicken goujons and chips with the home made coleslaw) or you can go for a fancy dinner of some nice fish or steak cooked to order.
The refurbishment has added a bit more class to it as it used to be just a dark pub that served food now it is a bit more like a well lit restaurant that has a bar.
It is right off the main street, near all the main transportation routes, has ample parking near it and it is an easy walk to the bustling main street with all its shops.
Very nice indeed.
A few years ago The Mint was mainly a place where you could get pub grub, which it has to be said was always of a very high standard and extremely cheap!
Over the last 3 or 4 years it has become more up market and turned into quite a plush restaurant with a large function room upstairs. They extended the eating area by building a long glass conservatory area at the front, which also looks attractive from the exterior.
The decor and lighting is pleasant. It is clean and fresh. The staff are polite, down to earth and cheerful.
The food is very nice and overall one can enjoy an inexpensive but good meal out.
