All good from the food and drink point of view, food was prompt and great, only bit of feedback would be way too much onion with the Korean chicken dish.

We had booked the cocktail experience for my birthday and our group really enjoyed the experience, this was driven by the value and the fact you could choose your own cocktails to make from a menu, however Paddy made the experience, he was easy to engage with and had lots of banter, this isn't easy when the others are drinking, well done Paddy.

I booked the cocktail masterclass and two course dinner for Saturday 15th June for my best friend's hen night. Our masterclass started at 4pm in the upstairs bar. The other bridesmaids and I arrived a bit earlier to decorate the area for the night with some banners, balloons and napkins. All the other girls and the bride arrived and we got started with the masterclass. It was then that we noticed a woman and man who were not members of our party had come into the upstairs bar area and started to decorate the area for a 21st birthday party that was happening that evening at 8pm. All of us had placed our bags and jackets on tables and chairs and these people came around and decorated the tables containing our belongings and hen party decorations. The lady said she had been told she could come down from 4pm to decorate the area for the 21st birthday however our masterclass started at 4pm so I feel that it was unprofessional for her to have been told she could decorate the area whilst another party was happening at the same time. She could have been told she could decorate from 6pm at which point we would have moved downstairs for our meal. Myself and a few of the other girls felt awkward with the situation. I have to say though that the cocktails were excellent and the two guys behind the bar did a fantastic job. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals. Overall it was a fun evening slightly dampened by the awkwardness in the upstairs bar.

Food was fantastic as always and service was friendly and efficient but alcoholic drinks were a bit pricey. £8 for gin and tonic and over £6 for a glass of wine!

Delicious food and cocktails ! Would have liked a specials menu on a Saturday. Had a two hour slot for lunch which was great and then went to the bar, disappointed that there was no seating with available seating upstairs but not allowed up hence our party leaving to go elsewhere
