Sleepers is a restaurant/café bar on Newland Ave, next to the railway bridge (hence, presumably, the name). I went there the other day for a work Christmas meal. It’s a pretty nice place. Fully booked with Christmas parties on the day I went, they were turning people away. Before I start reviewing the food I should mention that I’m currently trying to gain a bit of weight so quantity may weigh on my mind a little more than it should.
To start, I had pâté with toasted ciabatta. Except the ciabatta wasn’t toasted. Otherwise, excellent – lots of pâté. For the main course, turkey. Lots of it; and lots of vegetables (a few too many brussel sprouts for my liking – but the parsnips made up for it), mashed potato but only two roast potatoes. Dessert – fruit crumble, I liked it a lot. 6/10 on the food – good but not special.
The drinks at Sleepers are quite reasonably priced, or at least the bottled ales are. Good selection too. 8/10
Overall a solid 7/10. As it’s only a minute away from my house I may go again!
