I'd always fancied trying Zero Degrees but always thought that it would be fairly pricey so being a poor student I avoided them. I judged wrongly! They actually have a few great deals on during the week that are great for students who want to have some food out for a change. We did the regular 'afternoon' deal having 2 courses for a very reasonable £10. They also do a deal on mondays called 'Beat the Clock' where you can get something for £5 at 5pm and something for £6 at 6pm etc.
We got pretty good service, we arrived around 15 minutes before the deal finished but they still let us order from that menu. Our drink orders were taken immediately, although we did have to wait a while for them to actually turn up. Everyone with me was particularly keen to try out the mango beer which was also in the afternoon deal (I was boring and ordered a glass of rose instead haha!) The individual glasses quickly turned into a pitcher!
We started with two orders of each of the following:
These were great! The garlic in the butter was really strong which is always good with me, I wasn't as keen on the chilli oil as I'm not a fan of oils but it was enjoyed by others at the table.
The mains were brought out after we were given time to digest our starters. There was some sort of quiz going on that evening so we were entertained watching that. The kitchen was also an open plan one so it was interesting to watch the food being prepared. I did notice that they cooked the pizzas in a big pizza oven which is always good with me as it results in a crispier base!
We also had the choice to add a dessert to our deal for an extra £3 but by that time we were all full to the point of needing sleep! I would definitely recommend this restaurant to everyone! Like I said, it's great if you're on a budget and you'll probably have enough food left over to take home making two meals. That surely counts as SAVING money right?!
