Good nachos, big portion for a starter. Very reasonably priced too.
We caught the 2 for £12 deal which runs Mon-Thu from 4pm onwards, so for 2 starters, 2 mains and 2 kids meals, plus a couple of Cokes, it only cost us £35.
The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the music was pretty rubbish and a little too loud, and there's only on-street parking which is mostly single or double yellow lines.
A few years ago The Mint was mainly a place where you could get pub grub, which it has to be said was always of a very high standard and extremely cheap!
Over the last 3 or 4 years it has become more up market and turned into quite a plush restaurant with a large function room upstairs. They extended the eating area by building a long glass conservatory area at the front, which also looks attractive from the exterior.
The decor and lighting is pleasant. It is clean and fresh. The staff are polite, down to earth and cheerful.
The food is very nice and overall one can enjoy an inexpensive but good meal out.
When the Mint first started serving food on a large scale, I thought that it was excellent but on my last few visits it has not been as good. It isn't that the meal is really bad but it always seems seems that there is one problem or another. Wrong starter is sent, a drink is forgotten, one persons main course is cold. Staff are good when they can be bothered but at other times are more interested in talking to each other than checking if you are alright. Prices are okay and set lunch is good value and all in all it is an okay place for lunch, but don't go if it's a celebration as you may be disappointed.
