Saffrons Bistro

Reviewed By Jannon01 - Worcester, United Kingdom

After bagging myself a new job, My wife and I headed into town for a celebratory meal. We knew of Saffron’s through friends who regularly visited and always recommended it. So we thought we’d give it a go.
It was early evening - just after 6pm and their prix menu was available or you could choose from the main. We chose from the main.
The food was glorious- my wife has roasted pig cheek to start - the portion size was just right & she said it tasted amazing. I had fish cakes - which were equally as great.
Mains were fish (her) , duck (me). We even has desserts.
Each dish cooked beautifully.
There’s a great selection of wines - with carafes available if you’re quite up for a bottle.
And the champers they have by the glass was a perfect way to set the evening off.
The restaurant itself has a cosy, homely feel. And relaxed. And I wouldn’t hesitate to return for another visit.
Oh & p.s. upstairs is a gin bar. :-)

My wife and I thought we’d try this place out after Reading several good reviews on here. It lived up to expectations. Really nice restaurant and the food was excellent too. Good selection on the menu, my wife had the Moroccan lamb kebab and I opted for the lobster ravioli, we both loved our choices. The staff were excellent and very attentive, it gave the place a top quality restaurant feel. We will definitely be returning.

Reviewed By Paul S

Walking home, really need a coffee, all the usual places in town are packed (it’s 22nd Dec afternoon), so popped into the Museum cafe, a few people here, but tables available, no queues, and they have cake! Nice bit of spiced apple and a cappuccino, very nice.
They do sandwiches, soup, quiche, even a Christmas dinner at the moment.
And when your finished, have a look at the museum.
