Food was superb, some of the best beef stew and mash I have ever. The live acoustic guitar music was also very enjoyable. Service was quick and friendly.

Visited for restaurant week with a partner, ordered the beef stew and cheesecake desert. The beef was extremely tough and fatty though the taste of the sauce was nice, as was the mash. Portion sizes were very small, especially the desert. The cheesecake was listed as white chocolate though there was no taste there. Best way to describe it was two quenelles of whipped cream with some crumbled digestive sprinkled on top, deconstructed cheesecake taken too far I think. Drink prices were also very high, won’t be returning for cocktails or food anytime soon.

We were sat in the restaurant and the singer started to play- I felt sorry for him as we couldn’t hear a word he was saying his guitar was turned up too loud. Food was ok- very small portions yes it was restaurant week but I wouldn’t pay £5 for that tiny square of the peanut butter slice I had. Was ok but I wouldn’t say it was restaurant tasty

The staff were efficient friendly professional and helpful. The food was delicious and could not be faulted. I do think the portions could be a little bigger but it was a very enjoyable dining experience in a unique environment.

Amazing side portions especially for restaurant week. Camembert starter could easily be a sharing starter. Beef shin stew was delicious. All courses me and my wife had were amazing. Compliments to the chef and great service throughout also

The barman who we had for the private function was fantastic. He was great with all of our guests and contributed to an amazing evening.

Service was slow at times compared to the number of customer. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Loved the Variety of gin & run on the menu. Tables struggled to fit all the tapas plates. Overall I loved our visit and will be back again soon with friends!

Food was beautiful, the service felt a bit all over the place as there didn’t seem to be any guidance. I would go back.

Organising by Stacey really good via email however overall disappointing. For £50 I got 2 bowls crisps, 1 bowl dry roasted peanuts and 4 bowls cheese popcorn plus 2 sharers. Area and Nibbles were not ready for when we arrived. No plates no napkins no cutlery until I asked and I had to organise the tables. We were then moved to another area which was ‘private’ but people kept coming through. Staff generally polite. Had mix up where birthday cake surprise ruined as the birthday girl was asked if the cake could come out!! Not impressed but apology was made. Could have run smoother. Nibbles over priced and not really suitable. Will return but not for an event. Thank you

The main meal (Sunday lunch) was very nice and 3 out of the 4 sweets were lovely although My friend had to return her Rum baba dessert as she said it was extremely dry and couldn't even taste the rum. She was offered another one but turned this down - she was given a glass of fizz instead which was a lovely touch. Staff were very friendly and appeared knowledgesble especially when we asked about the various gins on the menu. But disappointingly the Service was poor and slow . We waited a while for the food and between drink orders, we order coffees - one came first and then the other 3 came about 15 minutes later and were cold. I was slightly disappointed as it was for a special occasion for my friend - not sure if I would return for food but would possibly have a drink as the bar and restaurant are done done amazing and very quirky.
