Booked a table, however there were no hostesses or staff to seat us. I waited 10 minutes and still no one arrived so we seated ourselves. When ordering a drink at the bar we ordered one of the speciality cocktails on the chalk board above the bar however two bar tenders were unaware on how to make it and came round to the other side of the bar to see what ingredients were in it. After this we decided not to get the cocktail as we didn’t want one that wasn’t going to be made properly, so we just ordered single spirits and mixers but that didn’t go smoothly either! The bartender was useless! He tried charging £35 for 4 single vodkas and mixers! This wasn’t the end of our problems, one of the staff/glass collectors gave us a broken chair causing one of us to fall and injure ourselves and then she offered us another broken one! The only good part of the visit was the manager, she was very attentive once we said about the chair! Very disappointed with the overall visit.

We had a great meal, the waiter and all other staff we dealt with were very friendly and helpful. The food was amazing. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars in the food and drink category was that we really didn't like the cocktails (I think it was called love and lemon). It just tasted like soda water. We will definitely be back.

The staff are extremely welcoming and family friendly, the relaxed and feel good vibe is fantastic. The food was tasty but I did request my meal to be onion free and unfortunately it was loaded with chopped onion that would have made me very ill. Rather than wait for another meal I swapped the dish with my partner, but if we didn’t have cranky kids with us then I would have requested it to be changed. The cocktails are great and I would definitely go back again.

Chairs were so rickety me and my brother both swapped and felt unstable on chairs. Felt like they were from charity shop or something as they were clearly very old. Food was amazing though and impressed with the layout and decor

Fairly quiet lunchtime but good atmosphere. Good value for the Little Bam burger and fries though the fries were a bit too salty but that is just my opinion. Looking forward to a sunny day so we can enjoy sitting outside.

We had to wait for our second drinks for easily 10 minutes (table for food and drinks order was taken then took 10 mins)... Was it an issue really because we were meeting others on the terrace. Food and location were lovely. Fab start to our theatre night. Thank you!

Loved it! Wonderful food and lively atmosphere. Only thing to improve is service when you arrive. No one on the desk so we had a wait for our booked table and the queue was out the door! However, will return!

Great place and great food and really good value for money. We were a group and found it a bit noisy so had difficulty talking to others on the table, but the noise was just from other people, not music, so if you want to go somewhere for a chat, I'd suggest going to one of the booths, or keeping your group to 6 or under. We will be back!

I had a big group of friends in for lunch and staff accommodated for us very well. Food was great and it a good price for cocktails at cocktail hour. Place is big and bright and nice to be in on a sunny day.
