Meal was fabulous, you can tell it's all cooked in house. Service excellent. Plates we're hot to keep the food hot, which was good, cos we could feel the cold air coming through the window frame.

Lovley ambiance, forgot all about covid whilst we were there. Roast could be improved by having more veg or some kind of greens on the plate. Had a d.j too who was playing some really good tunes. I would definitely return

Really lovely staff, food and drinks (cocktails). Good menu and not overly extensive as that can be an issue if there’s too much to choose from. Food was fresh and tasty. Just a shame that it was a grotty day weather wise when we visited as on a sunny day the view would be amazing!!

I really think charging a £13 something service charge is ridiculous, especially when you already charge so much for food and drink!

I don’t think it’s reasonable to wait an hour from our arrival to receive our starter.

the only reason I gave 3 stars for atmosphere is because we found the music a bit loud while we were dining.

Service was super polite and friendly, but a little slow. Portion sizes were a bit too generous- great value for money but some food waste

The main spoiler for me was my 2 year old sons chicken was raw in the middle. I notified the waitress straightaway and she dealt with it and brought another. Luckily he hadn’t eaten any of it yet. It worries me that this was even able to happen. So disappointing as the staff were great and the place is really quirky with a fantastic view of the pier. I would return for a drink but not food

The additional birthday desert when told about a celebration was very much appreciated. Staff were very accommodating, polite and helpful. Our group really enjoyed the evening.

Very poor, slow service, kept getting told we would have to move seats, but eventually didn’t have to . Aggressive security, yelling at people and patrolling the place with intimidating vibe . Witnessed 1 person dragged out for literally doing nothing. Won’t be returning.

Slow service on the bottomless brunch makes it tough to get your money’s worth. Food was nice and lovely cocktails.
