Unplugged and Unlimited - a review
What’s On has a review of Unplugged and Unlimited, a new event at caféM offering food and unlimited drink alongside live music.
If you’re after decadent dishes and glossy presentation, caféM’s new Unplugged and Unlimited night probably isn’t for you.
But if you want chilled music, a central location, and endless drinks within a relaxed venue, step right up.
Every Monday night, Unplugged and Unlimited features a two-course menu (a main with either starter or appetiser) alongside unlimited drinks.
The food options are simple: mains include anchovies on a tomato-vegetable base, grilled chicken with a dollop of potatoes and mushroom sauce on the side, and a sizable burger. The chicken was surprisingly juicy and the anchovies tasted fresh, yet judging from other diners the burger was the ticket. To go with the main, focus on the appetiser rather than the dessert. A starter of smoked salmon was light and delectable, whereas the chocolate cake tasted faintly defrosted.
Drinks were in ready and free flowing supply with a healthy amount of red and white wine alongside house spirits and hops.
Live music comes courtesy of Adam Johnson. His lively and entertaining covers range from popular songs from the 90s through to preset day and his voice leaves you relaxed and stress-free. It’s the perfect environment for that relaxed, post-dinner banter.
