I have been here twice and had the vegan option both times - a bowl with black rice, sweet potato, corn, tofu, avocado, etc. It was delicious. The first time I went there to work on my laptop in preparation for a talk. Staff were friendly and accommodating. A friend came with me the second visit, she had a pizza. The food and service was great both times

The office had lunch at The Foundry. I ordered a hamburger and was blown away by the taste and freshness of everything. Service was good despite the lunch-hour crowd making conversation virtually impossible. The Foundry is definitely a place mostly frequented by office crowds with a drink in one hand and a cellphone in the other. I lovely place for this type of gathering with a varied menu to please every taste. I can't see myself going there for more relaxed meal and good conversation. But for a lunch on a Friday afternoon, brilliant!

The standards at this place have deteriorated drastically.... From having succulent food to compromising on thier quality. The ribeye steak is as thin as a club steak, it's dry and tasteless. The fish is horrible it's equally dry so much so I'd rate canned pilchards as tastier. It retains a good vibe and that's the only positive I can say

This place used to be packed and had great food across a varied menu. Now it seems to only operate as a bar, the only edible things being the pizzas. Don't even think of going near the crucified mussels, and the burgers are awful too - not freshly made. The Chef seems to spend most of his time standing watching TV at the bar, which could explain part of the issue. Such a shame. This is my local and I now wouldn't think of ordering food there. The 2 stars come from the great waiting staff, nice interior and decent drinks.

Not many restaurants are open for Christmas Day lunch , but this restaurant was and excelled. Not only was the service attentive and cheerful , we were also very impressed with Tuna Taco (starter) , Spit Roast Pork (main) , Sea Bass (main) , Rainbow Bowl (main) and Milk Tart Panna Cotta. The location on a side street is pleasant , with tables along the outside , under umbrellas , while the inside has pleasant decor and a buzzy vibe.

Looking for a restaurant for a Friday night family meal to say farewell to our daughter who was returning to university, we booked at The Foundry.... not knowing anything about it. What a pleasant surprise to find a restaurant which catered for all tastes from burger, to pizzas to steaks to salads. Even more pleasing was the fact that we could actually hear ourselves talk while we enjoyed what were universally delicious meals! A real win and a restaurant we will go back to.

My brother and I visited on a Saturday for lunch, the restaurant seemed relatively quiet, but we decided try it anyway. The thai green curry mussels were mouthwatering, the handcut chip that accompanied it was crisp and spiced well; I ordered rice, which wasn't on the menu, but the kitchen happily obliged. My brother had a burger, wasn't paying attention to which one it was, but he also raved about the burger which was a huge portion served fresh condiments and looked mouthwatering. The service was mediocre at best, but the food definitely worth it.

I often go to Foundry, business lunches, drunks in the bar with tapas and soccer.....but it all fell apart at a recent dinner...17th Jan. We arrived at 19:45 and dinner arrived 21:20... after repeated excuses from the waiter. My burger was good...my partners steak was terrible. The steak tastes as if it had been defrosted in a micro. In fact it tasted a little off, was dry. When we asked the waiter if the steak was fresh...he said yes it must be the sauce they put on....really not great. Haven't been back and.

Food is really good! Especially the beer fritters! Love it. We had a good evening. Although it is slightly more pricy than other restaurants it is worth it.

We often choose The Foundry as our local hangout spot. It is great for drinks after work, lunch with family or dinner with friends. Our favourite time is Sunday lunch where the roast lamb special is a must. It is a casual hangout place for all ages.

Had a great experience at The Foundry. Without knowing what we felt like, the menu had a wide range to please everyone. Best dish was the steak salad! We also had the mushroom pizza and beef burger. Service was great and atmosphere was good for a stormy afternoon.

The food here is good, and the atmosphere is great. This restaurant can be very busy, so worth booking a table. The bar section is great, and often full of customers popping in after work for a pint and a snack. They have TVs for sport viewing.
