Great overall, but the deposit I paid wasn’t deducted from the bill. Staff said they’d email me, but heard nothing as yet. Love that you’re back open again... we missed you! Loved hearing that Estrella might be featuring on the bar Soon! (Hubby impressed, fave tipple! Great wine, great ribs and fries. Had no problem paying the deposit. Totally understand why it’s in place. Just a bit gutted the hubby paid the bill before i had chance to ask if it’d been deducted. Perhaps make it easier for the staff to see the deposit? Staff were fab! Very attentive. Eighties tunes added a retro vibe that we enjoyed. Window seat was really nice; warm summer breeze. All round great Thursday evening out.

The staff were really friendly however it was very slow service to the point of us having to go to the bar and get our own drinks. The food I felt weren't great I had a stale bun for my hotdog however everyone else enjoyed their food.

If there’s more then 3 of you expect an hours wait for food, every time I’ve been it’s very slow, but food is good enough to warrant a return

Monday night is half price wings night, the wings were delicious, we weren’t sure how much we should order so opted for 1 kilo each, turns out you can easily share 1 kilo between 2 as a main or between 4 as a starter, the BBQ Korean wings were our favourite with a delicious sticky sauce, we also ordered dirty fries on the side which turned out to be way too much food, at the end of the meal the kind staff bagged up our uneaten wings which we ate at home the next day, great place to eat and socialise and also a dog friendly place which is unusual right in the heart of town, we would recommend this place to any wing lovers, they also do an awesome Mac n cheese

Food came quickly shortly after ordering it which we all thoroughly enjoyed, but unfortunately after finishing our food it took about 15-20 minutes to get the attention of a waiter as we wanted to order a hot drink which then took another 5-10 minutes to receive it.

Food and drinks were great and the atmosphere was lovely however service was really poor, when we arrived we said we had a booking for 1pm and got pointed in the direction of our table however the table wasn’t laid up we had to do it ourselves as stuff didn’t seemed interested in helping us push tables together and find a 7th chair as there was only space for 6 when we had booked for 7. We tried to catch attention for drinks as wasn’t told you had to get drinks at the bar so we just assummed you go to the bar yourself to get drinks which took about 15 minutes to come? And then when ordering food again took ages to catch the staffs attention to order, and it wasn’t a busy lunch time. Apart from the poorest service we’ve ever had as staff seemed more interested in chatting to one another. Everything else was excellent, but I’m sorry the staff was such a let down! I’ve worked in hospitality myself this was not okay. Hopefully this is just a one off and the next time we come service will be a lot better. Thankyou anyway guys!
