About The Square Bar and Restaurant
Just what the area needs, a nice restaurant with great service.
Worth a return visit
Booked at short notice on a friday evening. Have to say we were impressed once shown to our seats, we got offered a complementary glass of wine. After a lovely bowl of soup, I had fish and the wife had beef, both were delicious. We finished off with a cheese board to share. As we where heading to the near by Hydro for a concert we couldn't stay longer.

Local produce, innovative chefs
Using seasonal. Local ingredients, the chefs at The Square offer everything from lunchtime open sandwiches to 40-day dry-aged steaks sourced from the award-winning Rogers Butcher. The menus’ simpler dishes include the burger of the week and the Square macaroni cheese made with a four cheese sauce.
More complex starters might be the seared king scallops with celeriac purée, crispy Parma ham and scallop salt. Or the salad of salt-blacked beets with walnuts, rocket and pickled baby radish. Popular main courses include the roasted chicken breast with carrot purée, rosemary and truffle mash plus whisky sauce or the roasted butternut and Parmesan ravioli. A seafood option might be the fillets of sea bass, sautéed herb potatoes, capers, julienne vegetables, lemon and an orange beurre blanc
