Visited on a Tues 4th Dec for my bday with my teen son and daughter and 76 yr old mother. V quiet but that suited us so we could chat with no disturbance. Service was first class both waitresses couldn't have done more and made us feel well looked after. Some great deals which made is all round an excellent and affordable night

Food was lovely however the service although friendly was very very slow- considering we were the first in the restaurant I was quite disappointed we only had 1 drink in over an hour and had to prompt someone for more. Seems to be a reoccurring thing looking at your reviews, if this is sorted I would say it would be spot on as the food was lovely.

The waitress was brilliant they gave us time to chat and take our time ordering were attentive to our drinks and even though the place was heaving with large parties we were still attended to swiftly. I didn’t like one of the cocktails and they changed it for me would definitely recommend this place

It was very busy but there was staff standing around quite a lot - we had to keep asking to get our bottomless Prosecco refilled which was a bit frustrating. Lovely food & well worth the money. I think it could be perfect it the staff were trained a bit better.

Rude staff. Waited for our pre-ordered meal for over an hour and half. - restaurant wasn't even busy. Waiting on drinks, one point went to the bar to collect our drinks, as they were sitting on the side. I had rude 'manger' shout and bring the drinks tickets to my face saying they were fast with drinks (8 people 5 drinks each over 2 hour period). I was told food wasn't her problem. Bill came wrong- as we pre paid £5 deposit per person but we was charged full still. Had to wait for this to be sorted. Was not happy as this was an annual girls get together at christmas we have never experienced rude and slow service anywhere else we have been on a yearly basis. And us being blamed for everything rather than accepting fault.

Expand vegan/ free from range for children. Despite telling staff on the online booking and over the phone that there would be a highchair needed and space for a wheelchair, the table choice was really cramped.

We booked on a Tuesday when there is suppose to be a special date night menu. We asked for the special 2 course + bottle wine menu advertised on Facebook to be told by the waitress there was no such meal. As she walked away we checked fb and my friend questioned the waitress showing her the advert - only then were we given the menu for date night special. We were then very disappointed to find the 2 course meal consisted of bread and oil for starter (this is not a starter) and a choice of steak (at an additional cost) or kebab - complete false advertising!!! We then ordered from the main menu because the special was ridiculous to then be told the chef wasn’t happy with the rice so we had to have a replacement that tasted like pudding rice that had congealed in the fridge for a few days. Oh also the starters - scotch egg was over cooked and the ‘parfait’ was a pate. We will not be visiting again. First time / last time

Couldn't fault the service even though we heard bad reviews before hand. It was the food that was a slight disappointment. Meat tasted as though it had been cooked twice. Chewy/rubbery consistency and quite dry. (Burger & hot dog). Starter was lovely though! Tandoori slate - highly recommend!

Fabulous food, you’d just run out of the Scotch egg-gutted! so I had goats cheese Bon Bon and my dining partner had the mussels both were excellent. We both had steaks and both were cooked to our personal preferences. Desserts, it would be rude not to-cheesecake and brownie for dessert were spot on. Washed down with champagne and wine and excellent friendly service. We were a little late being seated, nothing of any concern but what was excellent was the apology and offering to make up for it-sets the perfect tone for an evening out when a place exceeds your expectations. We didn’t know you were here, but we like that we found you and will definitely be back. Excellent evening with excellent food, excellent drink and excellent friendly service.

A friendly atmosphere and waitresses were very attentive. Food was nice however the tai green curry was not what I expected and was over powered by garlic so I felt a little disappointed. Prices are very high too. However I would be happy to visit again in the future. Thank you

One of our group was vegan - good choice for main course but no dessert or starter suitable for vegan. Seems silly to be so good with main course then no follow up. We shared dipping bread & olives which was good but none of us had a dessert so as not to make our vegan party member feel left out so missed out selling us desserts. Staff were pleasant & friendly. Ladies toilet cubicles are too small especially the single one if you were a size 20 almost impossible to get in & shut the door without standing in the toilet!!
