About 56 North
'Food, gin and lovely setting in the sunshine'
Tracey Harrison - 13/07/2014
The deal we got via 5pm was amazing and we were not disappointed by anything. We all went for one of the burgers with a Bellini of choice and we struggled to clear our plates not through lack of trying!
We sat outside in the sunshine and retuned later in the evening for a g&t as we had enjoyed it so much.
'Great food in a lovely atmosphere '

I had been to 56 North a few years ago when it first changed names and was unimpressed with the food. However, this time was so different. The gourmet burgers were exactly that and the chicken ones are delicious. The fries are crispy with skins on and just right. We had a pomegranate Bellini as part of our offer and it was excellent. Will definitely be back there soon, this time with my husband.
