Recently refurbished in August 2017, Veritas features a contemporary and stylish look to match the vibrant city it finds itself within.

After booking our Christmas meal deal some time ago we were looking forward to our outing, after a number of years visiting your hostelry every 8/10 weeks. Unfortunately we were soon disappointed when the starter arrived and those of us that hard the tartlet found that we needed a carving knife to get through it. Then we thought it was just one of those days but with tarts the same - I don't think so. Then when the Christmas dinner came disappointment again when the turkey was, I think cut too thick and again a carving knife was needed and because of that the meat tended to be 'chewy' - cut thinner would have made the difference. By the way the vegetables were spot on. The Christmas pudding and cheese boards were OK. The final straw was when we asked for the bill to find we had been charged the daily rate and even forgot to deduct our deposits - then it took three members of staff to try and resolve the issue - disappointed - NOT GOOD.

It was not worth even one star. £32 lighter in the pocket and I wished I had stayed at home. The food was hard as though it had been left on the plate for some time then just warmed up. I had cheese & biscuits and it came with a small pot of "pickled" grapes! They were disgusting. 2 slabs of cheese that quite honestly I would not even use for cooking. It took 3 goes to get the correct bill presented to us. A £10 deposit had each been paid by my party, but had conveniently been missed off the bill. Quite honestly, they should be ashamed of what was a "joke for a Christmas dinner"! Visited Veritas Ale & Wine Bar on 2017-12-13

We were really disappointed with the quality of the food on Friday night. The service was poor (our table was set up for 9 but had 3 chairs missing which we had to chase with the bar staff!) and the food was cold and of poor quality. The soup had to be sent back it was that cold and the bread that accompanied it was still frozen! The puddings were dry (more moisture in the Sahara Desert than in the Polenta cake). I have eaten here previously and always enjoyed the food as it has always been of the highest standard, however this was disappointingly way below standard on this occasion and I am not sure that I will eat here again it was that bad.

We were very impressed with the quality of food given that it was very busy and there were lots of us. There was a slightly chaotic feel as it was so busy, but it is peak Christmas party season so this is understandable. Despite this the food was staggered well and was all hot when it arrived at the table. Much better than many other group Christmas meals we have had in the past. The only main negative from us was that we expected there to be crackers etc. on the table as this is usually the case when going for a set Christmas dinner - we did miss this fun aspect a bit.

Meal was average. We had pre-ordered the Xmas meal and the food seemed as though it had sat a little too long on the hot plate before it arrived at the table so was a little over cooked Visited Veritas Ale & Wine Bar on 2017-12-05

We were a party of 8 and visited at 6:30 on a Saturday after a visit to the Christmas markets The waitress was really attentive and really helped one of our party that required gluten free options Everyone had different mains and all were pleased with their meal The cheese and biscuits was initially disappointing as the cheese portions were tiny. When we pointed that out she quickly returned with extra A really pleasant meal Visited Veritas Ale & Wine Bar on 2017-12-02

The staff were prompt to take our orders, the food arrived in a timely manner and was good to eat: The dedicated room was much appreciated, if a little noisy when everybody was talking. The pre-ordering computer arrangements enabled some attendees to table their needs, but its premature closure meant that several orders had to be delayed until the day.

Very poor. We shared nachos for starter which were lovely but 3 out of 4 main courses sent back because they were cold. Then when they were returned mine was still cold so I ended up not having anything to eat. Would not recommend it at all. Visited Veritas Ale & Wine Bar on 2017-10-28

Absolutely brilliant. We were a large party of 12 adults and eight children. I booked over the phone, menus were emailed to me for us to make our choices. We were welcomed on arrived, sat on a very good place and the food and service was excellent. All our numerous changes, forgotten items and mind changes particularly from the small children were accepted cheerfully and acted upon promptly. An excellent family celebration made possible by your superb staff. Very good menu and excellent food from the chef on a busy evening. Visited Veritas Ale & Wine Bar on 2017-10-24
