I visited the Lounge for lunch today, it's the first time I've been. The Lounge is an airy and spacious cafe bar on North Street, with free on street parking nearby. It has large glass doors that open onto the street. It's nicely decorated and has a relaxed atmosphere, a feeling which is aided by the option to sink into comfortable squishy chairs and benches. It was fairly busy, but not ridiculously so.
They serve a range of coffees and soft drinks, as well as having a licensed bar. They have a range of snacks, such as soups, paninis, salads and light meals on offer, including daily specials which are marked up on a board. There are also a range of tempting desserts and cakes. You need to find a table and then go order knowing your table number.
The food is fresh and our lunch was delicious, as well as good value for money - I had half a panini with goats cheese and roast vegetables and a large cup of a superb vegetable soup for only £3.95. This was a special offer. You are otherwise looking at around £6-7 for a main course, which is very reasonable as the food is of a good standard.
The staff were cheerful, friendly and helpful, but not pushy, and we felt we could comfortably linger to chat after our meal. Overall it was very pleasant indeed in there, and we all had trouble extracting ourselves from our overly comfortable chairs to get back to work!
I love the Lounge, it is the first of a small chain of 'Lounges’ which believe now stretches as far as Cardiff and Bath. It is very relaxed and welcoming, I’ve taken my 4 children and not felt unacomfortable. You can have just a coffee or alcoholic drink, cake, snack, breakfast or full on meal. The food is always good and you can tell its freshly made on site, even the cakes and it all seems quite reasonable priced for what it is! It’s open at 9 in the morning until 11pm so its a great place to go whatever you fancy. Toilet facilities are a bit poor though. The peple in there all seem nice as well doesn’t feel like you are taking your children into a pu or bar. I’d definately reccommend this place.
Really like this place though the service can be sketchy, had to wait almost an hour for breakfast once, sometimes the staff don’t seem to have a clue what’s going on! Generally is ok though and the food, coffee and drinks are all great!
This is such a great little cafe bar. It seems to fulfill all the functions that a local bar needs. There is a great atmosphere and a really great menu available during the day then as the sun goes down, the music starts and it becomes a really sociable place to spend the evening. They always have daily newspapers available to read, there are lots of board games which you can borrow to play and during the day they seem to welcome children. The only downside that I can think of is that they don’t open till past eleven on a weekend - it’s always packed until then and most people aren’t keen on leaving at twenty past eleven!
Like it’s sister lounges, The Lounge on North Street is a comfortable and friendly place where you get good food and friendly staff. It has a laid back atmosphere and good music. The rum and ginger beers are great as are the marshmallow covered hot chocolates.
The first establishment in this small but highly individual chain of Bristol based pubs.
The Lounge is the biggest of the Bristol lounges and is currently the only one with an outside seating area.
The lighting is dim and warm, and the atmosphere is buzzing. The small but highly satisfying range of beverages compliments the feel to this style of bar.
There doesn't appear to be any hint of alcoholism or the other troubles that the alcohol industry brings.
It is merely an enjoyable place to socialise at your leisure.
The multitude of board games is a nice touch also.
