Lovely food and lovely cocktails, steak cooked perfectly, love the atmosphere not too lively but still upbeat. Only downfall is the servers can be slightly rude and impatient.

Only one criticism my wife had the fillet steak with bernaise sauce... it was bland and cold I realise it can’t be heated up because it’s an egg based sauce ... so maybe if another sauce was available along side the peppercorn eg Diane or blue cheese ... everything else about the meal was lovely

Main meals very nice, mash a bit cold compared to my wife's, but good flavour to it. Took quite a while to get the bill as no staff around even though very quiet and not busy. But overall a pleasant visit and would could again, just for the beef feather main.

When we turned up, we were told the gas had been turned off so no restaurant. No contact was made to warn us so we could make alternative arrangements. Top marks to the waiter who had to break the news to us in a polite and sympathetic manner.

Background music could have been better, for me, but that is obviously subjective. A more soporific style of music would create a more relaxing, class, atmosphere, not so 'downmarket'. Our waitress was first class. Extremely pleasant and accommodating.

Lovely building and the staff are attentive. However the afternoon tea was a bit of a disappointment, the vegetarian options weren’t great and the scones were very dry and crumbly.

I have been for a number of bottomless brunches and I think out of them all this currently sits bottom. Only one hot plate allowed-therefore not actually bottomless. But I guess it was fine as it was nice but technically not bottomless (cold food was help yourself though) No mixing gins with different tonics only the tonic listed next to the gin was allowed which is strange especially when they put the tonic in mini bottles on the table No swapping tonic for lemonade ok so I know it was a gin and tonic bottomless brunch but the cost of lemonade vs tonic makes this a daft rule but that is a rule so be aware of this so they wasted at least £15 of tonic which is annoying in this world of trying to reduce waste. Nice venue, nice food i just think there are better places for bottomless brunches out there.

When we arrived New Year’s Eve I explained that we hadn’t pre booked our meals as the link that was sent to me wouldn’t load so I was unable to see what was available. The manager told me it was no problem at all and gave us the set menu, my boyfriend is a very fussy eater so we told the manager nothing was to his taste on the set menu she was very helpful and was able to give us a alternative menu. Our food was delicious, all staff especially the manager on duty were so kind and helpful to us nothing was to much to ask. The atmosphere was so good Dj and saxophone player and the decor in the restaurant was stunning! We were so happy with the service and we will definitely be returning!😊

I am sorry to say but the afternoon tea we had here yesterday was awful. The service was excellent and the cocktail was lovely, and the bar itself was beautiful. Unfortunately the actual food was poor. The savoury selection was barely ok, the sweet selection was just out and out terrible. The scone was rock hard, the chocolate hot dog thing was disgusting. We didn’t complain at the time because we were enjoying a day out and just carried on with our day but we would definitely not return nor would we recommend this to anyone.

Attended for a baby shower. Lovely venue with great food, drinks and service. Couldn’t fault anything at all. One problem we encountered was dealt with immediately and addressed. Would recommend.

We came for the bottomless G&T 2 of had this and another 2 ate from the lunch menu. I eat out a lot and the fish and chips has got to be the best I’ve ever tasted. The chips were fluffy and crunchy and the batter light and crispy. The G&T’s are all Liverpool Gins and amazing fevertree tonics. Can’t wait to come back x

Visited with 7 friends after having a great weekend in Liverpool. Thought we would have plenty time to have a leisurely lunch before going for our train home. Booked the table for 1.15 but was rushing to finish at 3.50. Service far too slow. The restaurant was not busy so that wasn't an excuse. When the food did arrive it was good but not very hot. We had waited so long we didn't have time to send it back. Menu and price good but need to get quicker in the kitchen.
