Im surprised this got a ‘best of northwest’ in Squaremeal, i think they need to update their records somewhere.
We recently went to Paradise for a spot of dinner. Each time ive driven past on the weekend, there always seemed to be a huge queue to get in with various girls who looked like they were from TOWIE. Anyway, i was surprised on a Thursday night to find the dining area sparsely full of much older people. The rest of the bar was much quieter too – so a huge contrast from the weekends.
Anyway, foodwise – its standard gastropub fayre – steak, chicken, crab, partridge, risotto etc etc. Food was nothing exceptional but relatively well cooked. Desserts was similar. Cheesecake looked like the gelatine version rather than the usual delicious baked type but was ok. Service was friendly but very slow and the place got busier as the night went on but still a much older more subdued crowd. There is a ‘beer garden’ which is small but where you can eat. Unfortunately the door to the kitchen is there and you find the chefs storming in and out for breaks which doesnt give the best of impressions.
This place is expensive – for two people, its close to £70 though now ive spotted the 50% off on here, id rather have gone elsewhere on the Thursday (offer not available on Thursdays) and if i had to come here, id do so on another night and got the discount. £70 for two is hefty for what is quite average food. Youre there for the kooky decor but nothing else. Alternatives are definitely The Westbourne which is a short drive away and is far better but im afraid Paradise isnt worth a second visit.
