Reviewed: Natterjacks Bar & Kitchen

Great news for foodies and movie fans: Natterjacks on Brauny Gate combines the two. The super quirky restaurant and bar wows anyone on arrival. To the left, movie posters plaster the far wall and to the right, a collage of movie scenes features on the other with Dr Who TARDIS doors leading to the toilets!

Super quirky and definitely unique, the décor is certainly a talking point especially for excitable film fanatics but silence will fall once your food arrives when you’ll be too busy enjoy fantastic food. With a menu full of film-related dishes, our most favouritely-named being the tasty Big Kahuna Burger as featured in Pulp Fiction (1994), we went for the Blues Brothers veggie burger with moreish fried halloumi, and the steak with halloumi on top (the cheese is currently trending with us in the Niche office) Easy Rider burger, each with a sweet brioche bun and the most perfect fluffiest chunky chips you’ll ever find.

See if you can spot your burger on the wall by the way – a fun game and great way to test your film knowledge against your friends.

Ordering sides of crispy battered onion rings and cheesy nachos, we realised phenomenal portion sizes absolutely offer value for money. And we love that you can get full flavoursome quesadillas for a fiver!

The chilled out atmosphere also makes it perfect for a night out with fanciful cocktails and a mixture of great music tracks. As Christmas quickly approaches you might want to start thinking about where to gather for your works Christmas drinks, this place is definitely a strong contender particularly with club Sumo next door to continue your night.

Watch out for some subtle changes to the menu that will be sizzling into action in January too, the new owners are having a bit of a revamp!
