Lovely atmosphere in fab surroundings. Tipsy tea was great and it was nice that the Chef checked with us that everything was ok. Music a little loud for a 1 o'clock sitting, couldnt just chill out n chat, but it was good music fitting the ambience of the place. Overall a nice experience.

Loved it. The guy who normally works the bar was covering for a sick colleague. He was brilliant and such a lovely person! Only negative.... live music was too loud in the Union Jack room. We had to shout at each other. 😯

Great afternoon. The gin teapot was lovely and more than enough for the two of us. The food was nice but I would suggest a better selection of savouries to make it perfect. The place is fabulous and really quirky and a relaxed atmosphere.

Beautifully decorated and lovely atmosphere especially with the busker on a Saturday afternoon! The food and drinks were delicious, but service let it down as we waited almost half an hour for our drinks and then another 20 minutes for our food (it wasn’t especially busy) I’d still give it another try and return.

I'd reserved an area just for drinks. Rachel was hosting and she was excellent. Got us exactly what we wanted and made us feel very comfortable. Thank you.

We were very impressed with the surroundings, the atmosphere and the staff both in appearance and attitude, however we were disappointed with the food, we had chicken, bacon salad and burgers which were presented nicely but found to be dry. That did not spoil our eve and we will come back

Sunday lunch was delicious! Good value for money. I was especially impressed with the braised cabbage!! Not often a meal highlight.

The waitress was friendly and we enjoyed the meal however it took a while when it came to the service (waited a little while before the food order was taken and had to ask for the drinks menu during this time). Disappointed with the drinks, the cocktails were quite bitter and the price of lager shandy was more than a pint of lager which surprised me.

Booked my 30th here, we had a great time and the staff were very attentive. Organising it all was made easy by the sales manager Sian.

I booked a table for 8 at 5pm for a meal with drinks, but we were given the waiting tables and a tiny menu of starters or burgers. My squid was literally just squid onion rings and some chips, and the pork crackling was impossible to break, never mind eat. The food was so tiny we all had food immediately after.
