Food was lovely, thanks! We waited a while for our main course and had to ask how much longer it would be, but the food came out swiftly after. The waiter took one of our sides off as an apology, but we weren’t going to complain, so felt this was a very kind gesture. Thanks for a lovely evening!

Had a very good time and a nice way to spend Saturday afternoon after shopping. What started out as a £47 Groupon for 3 courses turned into an £83 meal adding my wife's wines and service charge!!!!

The food and drinks were faultless, however the service and the atmosphere were not. The restaurant was very, very dimmly lit and looked a little tired in places. The service was poor, a group of 4 men were seated next to my Mum and I in an otherwise completely empty restaurant. We felt that this was very inconsiderate. We had to ask for more drinks, despite there being few other tables, when we left we went to pay the bill and it couldn’t be found. When it eventually was, we paid in cash, the waitress took the money and disappeared for 5 mins with no explanation. I appreciate these seem like small, insignificant things, but for the quality for this establishment I felt this was not acceptable.

Excellent food and service. The restaurant is beautiful but very subdued but probably because it was a Tuesday.

Staff should concentrate on customers , not chat to each other and fail to make eye contact. I was half way through my soup before I was able to get black pepper, nearly gave up.

We had the £25 3 course deal which we felt was really good value for money. Unfortunately the restaurant wasn't very warm and it acked any atmosphere...maybe due to it not being too busy. We were disappointed to realise that upon checking the bill after leaving a gratuity charge had automatically been added without our knowledge. We felt this was wrong as we weren't given the choice that we thought as customers we should have had.

Work Evening meal and drinks, pre-ordered our food, all meals were correct and brought out on time, food was of a great quality and was really tasty!! Service was good, one comment was that there wasn't water on the table and it when we asked for it it didn't get replenished. Cocktails were great, overall would come back!

My wife wanted to come to this restaraunt for her birthday so we booked for Saturday evening. The place looked really nice on entering, sfter that it ws very dissapointng . Service was slow, a piece of butter was placed on the table and 20 minutes later bread arrived. Eventually they took our order after 30 minutes. The starters arrived which were ok but rather small. Main courses arrived again not very big portions and both meals not very warm . In conclusion it was over priced and not very good.
