Awesome service - amazing food:excellent attention to detail.
Everything was better than expected. A chilled atmosphere perfect for a daytime work 'do. Thank you.
Wow! Where do I start with this review? From the moment we entered the restaurant the WONDERFUL service started then. The young man who served us (sorry don't know his name, but he's going on holiday to Portugal next week!) was absolutely FANTASTIC! He was friendly, attentive, professional and nothing was too much trouble. The food was presented beautifully and tasted delicious - thank you Chef for substituting ingredients we didn't like, for those we did. It just so happened to be my friend's birthday and at the end of the meal we had a wonderful surprise.....the Chef sent out a huge plate filled with an assortment of small desserts.....at this stage we thought we'd died and gone to heaven!!! Once again, thank you Chef. To summarise, our whole dining experience was first class, can't wait to return.
Great food, service and drink choices
Had a pre theatre meal , great food & location at a reasonable price
We had a great night and the service was amazing!
Had a great evening and very attentive staff. The pre-theatre set menu is also great value for money!
Excellent greeting from a young lady on the bar who brought our drinks to our table. We were not rushed at all and spent a lovely time enjoying good food and people watching as we had a window seat, our server Sam was attentive and friendly, would highly recommend and will be back.
Really friendly service and delicious food! Early evening meal is a fantastic offer!
Everything great as always..👌🏻
Always love coming here. Every member of staff could not be more helpful and friendly! Fab atmosphere and tasty food not forgetting the gin! See you soon ☺️
Excellent service & atmosphere! Thoroughly recommend Pleased to Meet You for a special occasion. Booked the snug which was fantastic & received table service all evening.
First time at your restaurant, we booked for 6, turned up with 10 to see if you could accommodate and your staff were very accommodating We will be back
Excellent afternoon, good service, good food!
Ordered marinated mint rack of lamb Sunday lunch. Very little meat mostly fat.
The first time i have used the private function space and i will certainly consider this again for both personal and work events. The space, although downstairs, is very well designed with high quality, comfortable fittings. Service, exceptional, with a warm, friendly, attentive approach. Food and drinks were of a very high standard. All of the ingredients were there for a great product and experience.
We had an excellent time, thanks to the team who reserved us a table. The service and drinks selection was excellent! Also the door staff are always very polite and not intimidating as you walk past them. We left earlier than planned as a lot of our colleagues wanted to go somewhere more affordable as they are hospitality staff, otherwise we may have stayed longer. But otherwise we had (as always) a wonderful time in your bar!
I frequently dine on a Sunday, however on our last visit the main course took much longer to come and also the portion size was almost half of what we usually get. The Yorkshire puddings were over cooked, dry and tasted burnt. Very disappointed
Hi Chris, I'm incredibly sorry your dinner wasn't up to scratch. Especially as a frequent diner. If you would like to email me at [email protected] I would love to invite you back so we may redeem ourselves. Thank you and apologies again, Sam
Great food, really friendly service but just like the last time I visited, at the point we wanted to pay all the staff suddenly vanished.
Fabulous service and great food and drink
Delicious food, excellent service and great location.
It was a very busy day which meant we still didn't get seated until around 45 minutes after our reservation time which made our meal rushed
Very friendly staff
Fantastic staff - friendly and well informed. Our only gripe was with the volume of the piped music - our waiters turned it down several times, but then someone else in the bar turned it up again. Might be possible to have separate control for the restaurant speakers?
our server was excellent. This was a grown up hen do and she really helped us to enjoy our time. everyone was very impressed with the quality of the food and pricing. we did miss not having the smoking domes over the lamb ribs.
