The main let down was the service. Our waiter was very slow about asking us for our food order. Even though the restaurant was only half full. We were left with dirty plates for over 20 mins and then were asked if we wanted to pay. Nothing about dessert etc. We had only one drink as nobody asked about more drinks and ir was too muxh hard work to get the waiters attention. The only thing I would say, is that the waiter is very good at avoiding the customer eye.

Steak was fatty. Ordered chips but rice came out. Waitress denied the order was wrong. When bill came we were overcharged and was shocked to see service charge. Overall view is poor and i don't intend on returning. Bill came put £8 more than we worked it out to be.

More expensive than I would normally spend regularly, but SO worth it! We treat ourselves and travel the 45 minutes just to come here :)

Mine food was fine. But my partners calamari looked like it was cooked in old fat,her bearnaise sauce had a funny taste and sweet potato fries over cooked. The staff are attentive but don’t think after my partners food we will be back.

Food and service were excellent. Best burger I have had. Steaks were a little pricey but delicious.Atmosphere and decor were ideal and classy. Beer prices were reasonable for a trendy restaurant. Most enjoyable and would visit again.

Price is higher than I would like to pay (being a bit of a cheapskate admittedly) but the place is so worth it for an occasion and has great service and food! We keep it in mind for those rare ‘let’s treat outselves’ days, since we can’t help but order starters and sides and too many cocktails......

We came to your restaurant for a birthday meal. A cake was given to the waiter along with candles, this was a surprise for the birthday girl. The waiter then proceeded to ask THE BIRTHDAY GIRL when she would like her birthday cake... (this was supposed to be a surprise, which he had ruined) he then brought the cake over, with the candles the wrong way round. So instead of them saying 23, they said 32. This ruined our experience and thoroughly upset the birthday girl. We will not be coming back here for any birthdays in the future.

Service was not good. Received garbled voicemail. Phoned back. Still couldn't understand what person was saying . Then finally understood she was saying I'd reserved a table for 11. I said no, 2. 'Oh all right then. Bye,' she said. Bizarre. Got to restaurant. Said we had cinema discount. Ordered small wine. Was billed for large one. Meat was warm rather than hot. Was told when we got bill discount did not apply to my meal. My friend was asked 4 times if she had finished eating yet. How rude! Ordered hit chocolate. It was tepid. 'Oh yeah it's like that here,' said waitress. Abysmal. Won't be back.

The food was good. But the restaurant restricted us to 90 minutes for our booking. They cannot serve 3 courses in that time. Very short sighted. We didn’t have dessert. We spoke to the manager who agreed but told us his boss was in charge. If they allowed people longer they would eat and drink more. Unlikely to go back.

When we arrived, the staff said they had no record of my reservation....service was very poor, we were there for 2 1/2 hours for just 2 courses. Lots of staff, do they know what to do? Won't be going back

service was fab but felt that portion sizes on the firesticks were small for the price and steak was not cooked to the level requested.
