The evening was fantastic and the staff couldn’t have been more helpful! The bar tender in particular was great. Food was great and the upstairs area was the perfect space. Thanks a lot!

Shocking service on this occasion. Got sat at our table at 7pm, didnt have our orders taken till 740pm, and then finally got our food at 830pm. From the moment we sat down it should not have take an hour and a half to receive 2 pizzas, which take minutes to cook. Staff members aimlessly tidying tables that were already set and unaccompanied and ignoring the customers that were actually in and trying to catch their attention. Failed for about 20 minutes asking someone for the bill and ended up going to pay at the bar. I understand weekends are busy but they were clearly trying to bite off more than they could chew. Shocking customer service and had our night ruined.

Really like the food and the service...only complaint is that every time we come there seems to be a few flies loitering about. If you could sort that it would be great.

Really yummy cocktails and tasty food - we shared starters and sharers as a main course. Service felt a little rushed, but I guess that's Friday night!

I can not fault the food as the pizzas were amazing and arrived very quickly however the same cannot be said for the drinks!! We ordered our first round of drinks which came fine, our second round of drinks then took over 25 minutes to arrive, we had to try and catch a waitress which was hard within itself to find out where they were. These had not even been made, once they arrived the presentation was rushed and 2 cocktails were incorrect! We then had to raise this again by this point we were ready to leave as had somewhere else to be. Before this I have been a few times for food and always had an enjoyable experience however this has made me question returning

Order wasn’t written down. So they got my order wrong. Wrong pizza and wrong chips, they forgot my boyfriends order and had to come back and ask. We weren’t asked if the food was okay and we weren’t asked if we wanted any other drinks once we had finished ours. The tables around us were getting better treatment. I think cause they were spending more ie buying alcohol. Usually love this place but won’t be rushing back anytime soon.

Smart bar / restaurant, lots of smiley friendly staff. Although it was a bit long winded to book online, when we got there everything worked well. For me, the small plates are ideal, gives you chance to try different dishes.

Food was amazing. The nduja gnocchi might be the best thing I’ve ever eaten. We had the restaurant week menu so it was definitely value for money. Only issue was the wait for drinks could’ve been quicker. Our waitress was really helpful.

Service was best described as surly with a side order of cant be arsed. From the moment we walked in, to walking out, it was clearly as if serving customers was an absolute chore to the entire staff roster we dealt with. Weren't informed in advance or saw any notification that food was 50% off, not that we are complaining but it might have been nice to have been told as we were ordering!

Everything was lovely, apart from when disposal tubs and spoons were used for the ice cream? Seems unnecessary when reusable bowls and spoons could be used instead
