First time visiting, wanted to be placed on table by wall rather than having door draughts On back but was told couldn't be moved so was cold for duration of meal. Food was lovely but vegs strange, mixed vegs with chopped Fresh uncooked tomatoes? Steak was very salty n too big a portion. Management could be vastly improved with improved customer service esp as had to wait 30mins for the bill and no receipt could be provided?! Wont return again

The whole experience was great, service was by far the best we’ve had in a long time. The service started from the doorman, very friendly and polite, the host who showed us to our table again was very polite and friendly and the waitress that served us was very attentive, always had a smile on her face and knew the menu very well with certain recommendations. Couldn’t ask for better service.

We came for drinks on Saturday night and we had such a good time. The atmosphere was great, which I did not expect with all things considered. The staff were lovely. Olivia especially was great. Thank you for a great night!

Menu in the restaurant didnt match online. A friend was disappointed as they didnt have the options she saw online. Was not offered the specials that I had been emailed earlier in the day. Was not offered desserts until we asked and there was only a choice of 2 which isnt very good. Glad there was a discount. Found some of the food to be only luke warm. Seating area had crumbs from person before which proved it hadn't been thoroughly cleaned as it should have been due to covid.

I was a little disappointed in the service. We booked online and had to wait the best part of ten minutes at the door to be seated as the waiter checked our reservation. I appreciate there is more to consider due to social distancing, but it's baffling you don't keep the reservations at the door where people enter? I informed our waitress that we had our down a £20 deposit and she reassured me it would be deducted from our bill. When the bill arrived, it was not deducted and another person went to check we had in fact put a deposit down. I deliberately booked before 5pm to avoid the louder crowds in the evening but there were still quite a few in who were quite noisy. Other than that, I enjoyed my visit - there was an interesting range of food and it was a good standard for the price/area. There was a great range of drinks and I really enjoyed the home-distilled gin. The outside area is really nice too.

Great food. Lovely staff. Amazing decor and a nice atmosphere. Felt the cocktail was overpriced (had one of the sparkling options). The wait time of just over an hour was too long.
