We had a great area outside that meant people attending a collogues leaving party (~30 people) could easily mingle, hear each other etc

Unique, yummy bites and a generous selection of beers. Staff didn’t seem too happy to be there though.

Thanks for a lovely evening. Food was great, bar type food but great for the occasion. Our waitress was lovely, some misunderstanding at the beginning but we got there in the end. Lovely atmosphere, decor is really lovely too. Will definitely be back, heard it's even better on a friday night with a live band. So will check it out then. :)

The Thai salad is the best salad I’ve ever had. I’m not a salad person but because I was on diet so chose that. Super yummy Asian flavour with western way of making it... the rib is very tender and tasty!

Service was great, really friendly and attentive. Great setting, we were seated on the deck/courtyard and it was quite nice out. Coffee was nice, food was "ok". We got the grazing platter with the ribs, salt & pepper squid, mac & cheese bites, pizza bread, fried chicken and fried cauliflower 'wings'. We also got a side of loaded fries. Grazing platter: ribs were great, really tender and juicy; fried chicken was decent as well. Everything else was pretty bland and we didn't care to finish them. Loaded fries: If you're someone who likes a 'soft' fry you won't like this, but I only like crispy fries and thought it held up well against the gravy and cheese. Overall a decent meal but don't think I'd recommend the food unless you had a discount like First Table.

We visited with a group of 24 for our company Christmas Function and were quite disappointed. The venue is great, however front of house service was average to rude. Our group was not greeted and seated on arrival, we managed to find our reserved tables and found our group was split 18 on one table and 6 lonely soles on another. Our request to be grouped together was denied. We pre-ordered drinks but the instructions never made it to our single waitress and by the time we actually received drinks 30 minutes had passed. House beer by the jug and house wine by the bottle isn't that hard. The music was too loud for conversation during dinner. The food was superbly cooked and delicious and saved the day somewhat despite our portion sizes varying wildly by up to double on the same dishes. However one of our guests required Halal and preordered the only option of a salad, which transpired to be a pile of lettuce on a plate served with grit that broke his tooth. He's now facing a root canal worth more than our evenings bill. We are a pretty casual bunch and made the best of the situation but I'd think carefully before taking a group to this location.
