It wasn't Denise's French Restaurant it was a start-up Italian Restaurant. Food was OK if not the type I thought we were going to get - and the service was glacially slow.

Went for dinner on one Friday evening a couple of weeks ago. We’ve booked as instructed through the booking tool, nevertheless we were questioned by the waitress why havent called and then left standing for a while when she checked the rules. After realizing we did the right thing, no apologies and still kept repeating we should have called to book..... food was very limited and no side included (though on normal menu there were sides included) - don’t expect you can get ‘according to the rules Up to certain value of main and desert’. Same dish but smaller size and no sides for ‘Groupon’ users- this is what the waitress highlighted a couple of times. Food tastes ok. Wines-felt it’s been opened for long and we didn’t drink at all. Restaurant was quite empty. Service was OK (apart from the beginning and the fact that the waitress kept saying it is not her fault, these are the management’s rules-however somehow makes you feel that she is blaming the customers). Will not go back and will not recommend.

Note this restaurant is not called Denise’s anymore. It has been taken over by an Italian restaurant. They produce a different menu for groupon clients. The food was very tasty and waitresses were lovely

This is now an Italian restaurant but they did honour the French Groupon deal. Although it wasn't the original advertised ie no sides included.

This restaurant has changed into an Italian restaurant. We had used groupons here before,but it was awkward on this occasion. Staff were lovely ( as always) but previously, the mains came with vegetables and chips etc. This time , we had to pay extra for 'sides'. Our favourite ' pork chop' was off the menu - for good , it seemed. No longer a 'french' restaurant, not an Italian -so lots of pizza and pasta, I guess because Italian tourists bring in more money. Rather awkward experience. They should have HONOURED the Groupon, or refunded.

It was an utterly deceptive offer and we left without eating. The info suggested a wide range of options from the main menu up to a certain value but we were presented by our surly waitress with a small menu of stodgy TV dinner fare. Horribly unappealing and delivered with no semblance of grace. Left rapidly to find a more friendly and enticing dining experience.

A pleasant central location - very handy after the cinema. Good value. Food was tasty, though range on 2 course group on menu a bit limited. We added starters which were very good.

Went for the Roast Chicken which was hilariously bad - a dry bit of chicken with 4 carrots and 3 pieces of Broccoli. My girlfriend had the vegetarian option which was actually pretty good, so was dessert. Shame about the hilariously poor effort with the Chicken - can't believe the chef actually sent it out, embarrassing.
