Restaurant review: Fusion Room on Friargate

Posted on - 9th February, 2015 - 12:00pm | Author - | Posted in - Food & Drink, Friargate, Restaurants in Preston, Reviews

Fusion Room is a modern British Restaurant and although it’s been open since 2008, I had only visited once for a Tapas style lunch and that was shortly after it first opened. It was nice but I never thought to visit again until we were to go for a post Christmas meal with One Voice Community Choir at the end of January.


36 of us went and were seated in the upstairs function room area which has a bar, great for a large group.

We had chosen from the set menu although an A la Carte Menu is available as well as a lunch menu.

The evening set meal menu was £17.50 for 2 courses or £19.95 for three courses and changes regularly. The menu’s are on the website.

For starter, I went for Bury Black Pudding, served with Chorizo, hollandaise sauce and a poached egg. Unfortunately my poached egg wasn’t soft but the dish was still delicious and the presentation was lovely.

Starter – Bury Black Pudding

I chose the Pork Loin Steak for main, served with Carrot and Swede Puree, apple and blacksticks blue crust, and mash. Absolutely delicious! I could’ve eaten this dish again! The flavours were superb and the mash was so tasty! Excelent presentation. A Lovely dish!

Fusion Main

Main Course – Pork Loin Steak

As a dessert kinda girl, I had to go for 3 courses! 😉 So syrup sponge with real custard it was! Mmm mmm! Sometimes a syrup sponge can be stodgy and heavy but this dessert was sweet and light and easy to enjoy. The custard was scrummy. It was sprinkled with baby basil which I wasn’t sure about but the dish was scrummy!

Everyone who was sat around me also enjoyed their food. Being a large group, I can only really review from my experience although I did hear that someone wasn’t keen on the Risotto main. Without trying it, I wouldn’t like to comment.

The service was good although the there was quite a bit of time in between courses, as a large group, we were chatting and wandering between tables so it wasn’t too bad.

They even let us sing at the end of the night (although I’m not sure they had a choice!)A bit of entertainment for the people seated downstairs… maybe not! (A happy loud choir who’ve enjoyed a meal and been drinking, singing along to spoons clinking against glasses is perhaps not up to concert standard!) 😉

All in all we thoroughly enjoyed the evening. I will definitely be returning here to eat, the food was delicious and I’m looking forward to trying the A la Carte menu.

Atmosphere: 10/10 (cannot comment on downstairs seating)
Service: 7/10
Value: 10/10
Food: 9/10
Total: 36/40

Don’t just take our word for it, see what everyone is saying on Trip Advisor. Fusion Room currently has four and a half out of five stars.

Our food reviewers pay for themselves and aren’t invited by the venue, if we are we will always say in the review.
