We booked a table for 19.45 on Friday night (for 5 people) through 5pm.co.uk. We arrived on-time and were immediately shown to our table; the downstairs restaurant is well laid out and we were sat at the open couch like tables (my personal favourite); although not ideal for people over 6'5".
We were immediately offered our free beers as part of our deal (2 courses for £13.95 with a free beer) and the waitress was aware we had booked through 5pm and explained the deal clearly. The only catch being a £2 supplment for main meals over £12, which is entirely understandable. One look at the menu showed the deal to be exceptional value.
We all ordered various items from the menu and were all impressed with quality /quantity. In-fact my fried sushi would have been considered a main course in most restuarants and the beef for the main course was perfectly cooked (medium-rare) and very tasty.
The service was friendly throughout, although it was occasionally on the slow side. We were never hurried and I'm certain we could have sat at the table until closing time, which is a big advantage over some of the 'pack them in, turf them out' restaurants.
Overall I was very impressed and would strongly recommend Bar Soba.
