Drinks seemed pretty pricey considering it was happy hour, but discount wings made up for it

Here is the comment I left on trip advisor ... We visited last night to celebrate my birthday with family and friends upon a recommendation. Pre-booked a table & food for 12 guests for 8pm 29/3/19. Booking process and preselecting food etc was simple, quick and friendly. Upon arrival we had a drink at the bar whilst our table was being cleaned and prepared. I knew live music would be on as that was another reason why I chose you! - for the atmosphere. To try and keep it brief. ( if I can) The music was so loud our ears were bleeding! We all couldn’t hear ourselves think- All Crammed in the corner sat underneath the speaker really didn’t help. The chap who was playing even acknowledged and asked- if was it too loud?? We said yes but continued anyway. Then a group of people - I say group more like a bus load! Sat next to us. Practically sat on our laps. We couldn’t move in or out- literally barracaided in! Banging the table and shouting over the music. Screaming at one another. At this point we were already eating our mains then we cancelled the pudding orders and promptly left! I expressed my dissatisfaction to the lovely waitress who had been looking after us. She couldn’t apologise enough. So the meal was cut short, we didn’t even finish it. All plates half finished and rushed. Sat winching at the volume of the music and the crowd of idiots next to us! So, I have to be honest- ruined the night- couldn’t wait to leave! And felt absolutely gutted!!! A waste of money. Food service was amazing, staff were friendly, competent and ever so helpful. The lady who was at your front desk and looked after us was amazing! She’s a keeper. Upton reflection we should have been offered a discount or refund as we left. Now having to organise another meal for this evening, somewhere else to compensate for the evening. And just for the record. No, I am not an old moany lady with nothing better to do! Our group was a mix of young and old who love great music and a good time! - it was just such a shame. Would have given terrible as a rating if it wasn’t for your amazing staff and the avocado starter. 🤔 Lucy Jones

Great food, good portions!! Good service and atmosphere. Managed to get in for happy hour which is a bonus, would be helpful if it was listed what is and isn’t included though.

Great venue and atmosphere and a staff member called Matt was very helpful when I rang up to book the table. Service was slow in regards to drinks orders. I waited over 30 minutes for a pot of tea. Perhaps more staff are needed to help with the volume of customers? or more tea pots and cups! Overall had a great time and staff were friendly.

Fantastic venue recommended by a friend and would recommend again. Our waiter Ibrihim was fantastic and went above and beyond to help us have a great night. Management were very helpful with recommendations for the night and booking taxis for us. Thank you.

We had a great night overall, the food, the drinks and the staff were really friendly. It was a busy night but members of staff walked past our table for over an hour and left our dirty plates on the table even though we had piled them up so we didn't have them directly in front of us. It was only when we asked for the bill that the guy actually picked them up. We were not asked if we wanted anymore drinks after we had ordered our food and we would've ordered more drinks, so a trick was missed here. Only a small grumble because the rest was great.

Went for a birthday celebration on a Saturday night Great food & service as always. Only downfall was the the music was too loud...even the waiter struggled to take our order!! Could do with the music down a tad so you could hear the person next to you.

This is a great place to meet, eat and socialise. We have been several times, staff are attentive and professional and also bought my little dog water and treats! Food is very good with generous plates full! Bought my American half of the family last visit and they were very impressed with all aspects of the experience! Keep up the good work! Will be back again soon.
