SquareMeal Review of The Assembly

Location makes all the difference to this contemporary offshoot of the Balls Brothers chain. Nestled into a quiet corner behind Trinity Square, with windows opening right back & a few alfresco tables balanced on the narrow pavement, it’s an alluring spot if you want to escape for an hour or so. Everything on the short lunch menu is made from scratch: share a baked Camembert with cranberry jelly, or try a build-your-own sirloin steak sandwich with chunky chips & as many additional toppings as you like. Cocktails cost up to £7.50, beers drinkers have bottles of Beck’s, Sol & Peroni, & the wine list offers a wide range of fizz, plus plenty of easy drinking for £20 or less.

Amazing food, Amazing Service, Amazing atmosphere. I just went for a quick lunch with some friends and ended up staying the entire evening, we had a great time and will definitely be going back again soon, Happy hour is nice as well. 5 – 8 half price drinks, doesn’t get much better than that.

Not really a big fan of most bars and restaurants in the City but this I love coming to this place. It's trendy without being pretentious, friendly without being fake. I can bring clients in for a long lunch or have a quick snack with friends without breaking the bank! If you haven't been its really worth a visit!
