We ate in one of the pods on a rainy day so it was a great choice. The staff were very friendly and the food was lovely.

Tremendous. A rare treat. We booked because of the pod which was as expected a fun novelty and nice and warm. The food really exceeded our expectations and the staff were all very professional and friendly. Thank you!

We had a wonderful family meal here, the food was fresh and tasty, wonderfully presented. The staff was very kind and welcoming, although they seemed slightly short-staffed. The outdoor igloos have heaters and were perfect for a rainy evening. We brought extra lap blankets and we were all cosy. If you go before 6:30 on a weekday, the set menu is a great value. 2 courses for £16.99. The burgers are adult size, very big and staked full of toppings, my teens didn't finish them, and they are good eaters, so if you have little ones, try the kids menu.

Food was decent (though didn’t really understand the prawn starter, wasn’t great). Service was great, though having the sides of the pod up was annoying (not the restaurant’s fault) and it was freezing!

When asked how our meal was I mentioned how dissatisfied I was with my dish( rack of lamb) dauphinois potatoes with no garlic or cream and very tasteless and lamb was way over cooked . Waiter just nodded. what’s the point in asking how our meal was if there’s no intention to rectify any dissatisfaction? Waiter was very attentive though .

I went for my birthday celebrations with my friends. We had a wonderful time and we were still talking about it the next day. The staff were attentive and friendly. The igloos outside are a great, as you have your own private space away from other diners. I would definitely recommend it.

Unfortunately the food wasn’t as good as I remember it to be prior to Covid. The prawns in my linguine were over cooked. The brownie was also over cooked and unpleasant although the salted caramel ice cream was lovely. It’s a shame really.

The bubbles outside are great. They protect from the rain whilst having loads of ventilation ( re COVID).
