Food for on the piggy platter was rather poor for the price. Pork chops was very dry. Always had a pleasant experience in the past but was rather disappointed on Friday.

Hi, There were six of us in our party and we all had a brilliant night. The food was sensational and the fillet steak was to die for. We will be back. John.

Drinks are by far the best thing here. Service and attention to detail was lacking, food was pleasant enough but very overpriced and certainly nothing to write home about.

We enjoyed a fantastic meal on a Saturday lunchtime. The service was very good and the atmosphere at the restaurant was great. We really enjoyed The Ultimate Glynn and Tonic - what a superb drink. We ordered from the fixed price menu , a 3 course meal for £20. Exceptional value for money and the food was just divine . We will be returning within the next couple of weeks. Thank you for an amazing afternoon .

We chose from one prix fixe and one alacarte menu. Prix fixe was good value. From the main menu scotch egg starter was ok but a little bland. The ox cheek main with coconut/spicy rice was fabulous. I could eat that rice all day. We were both too full for dessert. A lovely place to go for lunch and they don’t rush you out which was great as it was a long overdue catchup with a friend.

Lovely visit today. Have previously stopped by for drinks and bar menu - which are excellent - but today ate from a la carte and food was fantastic. Great service too.

In a very full and busy restaurant we were treated unbelievably well. Friendly and courteous staff on arrival, no rush to go to the table. Fabulous food, lovely service and good value for money. All five of us agreed this was an exceptional experience. Certainly going back !

The pork chop was dry, mac and cheese very watery (we even thought it could possibly be pasta'n'sauce) Chorizo and ribs were amazing! Cocktail very nice. Wine selection very good.

Had a great time as usual. Just a couple of things, the folk who had the terrine would have liked a little bread with it. All of us would have appreciated some green vegetables in the selection.

One of my guests had an allergy, chef came out from the kitchen and spoke directly with her and provided a really nice starter and main course, she felt really confident that the food would be allergy free, this was a really nice touch and the food was excellent, Thanks for this, only comment was the plates were cold.

The website advertises a 'happy hour / selected cocktails' at £5....on arrival we were told this offer was not available. I was disappointed with the false advertising and clearly it was a managerial decision not to serve/sell the selected cocktails for £5 as the same cocktails were available at full price.....not a customer friendly decision and approach. We had a Groupon voucher for our meal and glass of prosecco - we found this to be great value.

The food was excellent and it had a nice, relaxing atmosphere. However whilst the service was ok, I didn't think it was as warm and friendly as other places we've been. I'd still highly recommend a visit though!

Food, and atmosphere was 10 out of 10. However, I thought the prices were a little high so glad I had a groupon voucher.
