I have been here before, probably around 4 weeks prior to when this blog is dated.

I went with my girlfriend and best friend, that night I wasn’t too hungry but they really enjoyed the food so I was hungry tonight and decided to take a visit.

On entering here you have to go upstairs, this visit and last nobody was downstairs to say “just go up” which is ok if you know this if not you feel a little out of place just heading up.

Last visit we were seated to the right (where the booths are), tonight to the left where the little tables are….this is where tonight took a little bad turn.

Sitting down it was nice but not as nice as the booths area, and this is where my overall score drops instantly by 1 point.

The walls to my side look like someone threw their dinner on it, and the stains have been left for a very long time. It wasn’t loads, but it was enough that it really should have been painted!! This wasn’t good as a quick paint, would have fixed this (-1 point).

The Food…

Tonight I wanted to order a starter and a main, as last visit my best friend said his was really nice.

I saw they did a pre-theatre menu, so I opted for that £12.95

Drink

Mango Lassi

Unfortunately I didn’t catch the price of this, but I am guessing £3 or £4 (will fix once I find out). I am a big Mango Lassi fan, so I always try it wherever I go and tonight I did just that.

I have to say this was probably the best one I have had, so I am looking forward to having it again.

Starter

Chicken Pakora
Breast of chicken in spicy pakora batter.

On arrival this smelled and looked good, so it was time to dig in.

This was really nice, the flavour was good, the chicken was tender and the batter was just crispy.

I really enjoyed this and would have again.

Main

Chicken Rogan Josh

On arrival again this was another dish that smelled really good.

This was really really good, there was enough chicken, the sauce and flavour just perfect.

I would have this again.

Side

Pashwari Naan

On arrival it looked ok, and now it was time to taste as Pashwari is my fav naan.

Oh, this was not good! basically it was just a plain naan with the coconut etc lightly sprinkled on top.

There was no sweet filling, not even a little….I was very disappointed.

I wouldn’t order this again, not good guys!!

Overall

Overall it was a really mixed night, to starter and curry was very nice but the dirty walls and the naan was really bad.

I was really disappointed tonight, as the last visit my friends had a really nice meal and were seated in the booth area which was clean unlike tonight.

Will go back? not sure….

Sorry guys.

Back again to use my second and last (so far) Itison Voucher, and tonight I was trying another burger.

Main Course

The Lemmy (normally £9.50)
Beef burger topped with BBQ pulled pork, shoestring onions, cheddar & jack daniels BBQ sauce.

When this arrived it looked goooood and smelled goood, but just like last time lets start with the fries.

The fries just like my last two visits, were very nice and cooked perfectly but I would actually these were MUCH nicer than the last two visits. What ever you have changed guys, or if its the chef tonight don’t change it!!

Overall

This time I am very glad I decided to go for a burger, as I really enjoyed it.

Guys you need to take a visit here with or without a voucher, its a good atmosphere to enjoy your meal or drinks in.

I had wanted to visit here for a long time, but any time I passed the wait for a table was always outside the door, today I visited and managed to get a seat woohoo

Looking Around

Looking around the decor was very nice, it looked very similar to the style of the previous restaurant with a few subtle changes.

The Food…

Now this is what I was here to try, the pancakes

Main

Pulled pork & chorizo stack £9.5
Buttermilk Stack • Lime & Chipotle Marinated Pulled Pork • Chorizo, Crispy Onion • Smoked Mozzarella • BBQ Glaze • Coriander

Firstly the presentation this looked very nice, and it smelled even nicer.

This was really really good, the flavours worked perfect and even the pancakes were nice with all this. I was very worried that all of these toppings etc wouldnt work with pancakes, but I was proven so so wrong.

I would highly recommend this and 100% would have this again

Drink

Smoothie : Strawberry & Bananna £4.50
With Soya Milk, Purple Carrot Concentrate & Chia Seeds

I wanted to try something different as I always order Diet Coke, so I opted for a smoothie.

This sounded nice, and I took a chance.

On arrival this looked really good, and taste was just as nice.

Overall

I am very impressed with my first visit to Stack & Still, and this wont be my last.

I enjoyed everything I ordered tonight, and will be returning.

My biggest tip for here is only order the main, unless your SUPER hungry and feel like a side as you are mega mega full with just a main.
