When we got there there was a queue of a couple people but as we booked our table was waiting for us. Highly recommend booking

We were there on 30 Apr and again on 2 May. Food was lovely and the staff were very friendly and went out of their way to make sure guests had a good experience. We'll definitely be back.

We were booked in for 6pm to 7:30pm there was no mention of needing to place a food order until 7pm when our server asked of we could possibly order some food as the "covid warden" was walking past. Unless I'm mistaken but this time round there is no restriction on the requirements to eat while having an alcoholic drink. However members of my party were peckish so did order 2 chip cones (which were delish) however immediately after these were eaten & we had ordered another drink we were told it was our last order as it was now 7:20pm. The rain was lashing down we were happy to leave as the parasols were not keeping us dry however I doubt there was another group coming to that table that evening & if we hadn't have been forced we may have irdred another round. It seems like they didn't want our custom pass the designated timeframe but wanted to take whatever money they could from us during it!

We had a booking so we approached the front of the queue but then were told to go back into the queue as "we had apparently skipped the queue". Yet when we told the server she apologised and took us to our reserved seat. I think that there should have been two queues one for people who booked a table and one for people who are just walking in. Service was a bit slow and had to ask 3 times for a glass of water. However the food, cocktails and atmosphere out weighed the mishaps.

Great service and good prices but, perhaps due to being the first day reopening after lockdown, the behaviour of various other tables was pretty poor. I realise this is very hard for staff to police but the constant screaming wasn't great.

First day back after lockdown. Other than a few hiccups with the new ordering app everything went very smoothly. The staff were calm and courteous (as always). Food as delicious as I remember and the cocktails went down a treat 5 stars

Only picked 5 out of 5 stars because 6 isn’t an option! Food, service & atmosphere were all fantastic and it’s very reassuring to be somewhere that takes social distancing measures so seriously- we felt very safe. Looking forward to returning when lockdown permits.

Service is the only place I can knock it a little, and that's not the team's fault, they were flat out but remained super friendly. I think you need a little bit more staffing on the eat-out-to-help out nights, because it seemed busy, and the guys can only do so much! Thanks for a great night out!
