The staff in whole, were absolutely brilliant. They even called us back after we all had left, when one of our group left their glasses . My only negative, was that I ordered the vegilicious burger with sweet potato fries but when our mains came out I was handed a beetroot burger and normal fries - as the water had forgotten to tell me of the change. Yes, it was delicious but I would have liked the opportunity to have ordered something else. Not great tbh.

Our meals took more than 1 hour to be served resulting in our parking ticket expiring. We came on recommendation but would not come again. Shame as the food was nice, but service was awful.

We were very well looked after during our dinner and we enjoyed the food. We wouldn't hesitate to return or recommend the restaurant, thank you.

Staff kept asking for order when we had pre-ordered and clearly not everyone there! Food was fairly good, though plates cold and food warm as opposed to hot! I'd revisit as 'dog friendly' but otherwise......! Rained and ceiling leaked but rain excessive! Staff pleasant.

Arrived on time for our booking, many dishes on a very sparse menu sold out. Disappointing. Didn’t fancy ham and eggs for Saturday evening dinner! Tried to find another restaurant that had a table available...then we were told the kitchen was now closed, so had to leave! Could not believe they were turning away 5 people from a booking... much wine and food would have been consumed! Bad business, if I owned that place I’d be worrying!! Rubbish.

Booked a table on Tuesday for Wednesday night in the restaurant - very surprised when arriving on Wednesday to be told the restaurant was closed! Had to sit in the bar where the menu was very limited! Also there was a DJ on, so the opportunity for conversation was nil! Surprisingly during the evening the restaurant was opened!!!!

Absolutely lovely time at this restaurant. I have a disability which prevents me from going upstairs so I requested a table downstairs. Even though the restaurant is upstairs a table had been reserved for us in the bar area and we had a lovely time. The staff behind the bar were fabulous, especially George. The food was fantastic and the view beautiful. I would highly recommend a visit.

Food was nice. Vegan burgers were really good. The lack of service was disappointing. It wasn't extremely busy and there seemed to be plenty of staff milling around but we had to call someone over to order drinks on first arriving (also we hadn't been given menus). Food arrived fairly quickly and was nice. But after that no one came to ask if we'd like more drinks, despite our drinks being empty and staff passing the table on numerous occasions. In the end we had to call someone over again. Drinks took a while to arrive. After that we decided to go elsewhere for more drinks due to the lack of service and time taken. Staff don't have any sort of uniform, or even t-shirts etc to show they work there so it's quite difficult to know who works there and who is a customer. As I say, food was nice (although seabass and ham were both off the menu) and the vegan burger was a good one. Could use more vegan options though.

Making my reservation was great, no problems. On arrival, no meet & greet, looked kind of hectic. Had to wait ages for drinks, we had about 3 different servers. Food and drinks were good, I would definitely eat there again. Bar staff need to have more training, asked if I would like a slice of orange in my drink, the staff picked it up with their fingers and attempted to put it in my glass!! Thanks to George & Ash.

We reserved this table a month ago, and reconfirmed it the night before on the booking site, so we were astonished to find that they had cancelled our reservation without telling us in order to accommodate a party. The supervisor at the restaurant even tried to tell me that he had tried to contact me, despite having no proof of this and my bringing along the email confirming our reservation from the day before. It was an incredibly hot day, and we had three small children and a baby who were all tired and hungry, The restaurant could not have been less helpful and left us standing around while they went off for 10 minutes before they told us what had happened. There seemed to be no acceptance of the mistake that had been made, and we were made to feel like we were being a nuisance. I would never consider coming back here.
