Food was outstanding and amazing value for money, would definitely return for it. However service was extremely slow. After our main we waited over an hour just to grab someone's attention to lift our empty plates and request our desserts. I'm not sure if they were understaffed on this particular night or busier than expected. But that is the only fault from the evening.

Our waitress was so so lovely, super friendly and helped recommend places for us to drink. I didn’t catch her name but she was blonde and in her 20s and was joking with us about how we were drinking tequila and baby guinesses. Aw I wish I knew her name but I hope this gets back to her!! Food was also great too, overall a lovely night thank you!!

Service was great from the guy explaining how the one way sydtem worked if you went to the bathroom (although don't know if other patrons got the memo or just ignored it).. Liked the partition between the seats. Meant we had a bit more privacy. Food was, as usual, gorgeous. And 1hr 45mins was more than enough to chill, eat have another drink and then ready to leave. Will definitely be back 😊

We had a lovely meal, one of our party was gluten free and the waitress explained the menu very well and also asked the chef if she wasn't sure about something. Staff were great will definitely be back.

I had booked a table for Saturday afternoon for 4 people, meal was lovely as well as the lady who served us, the problem arose just after we finished our main course, we got told that the table was booked for another booking and you are only allocated 1hr 45 minutes per booking, which would have been fine if we had been advised of this at time of booking or even when we were seated. We had ordered bottles of wine with our meal that was still half full when we had been informed that we have 10 minutes left on the table, the waitress that served us was lovely and tried to find us another table in the bar so that we could finish of our drink as my mum and aunt have walking difficulties, then a different waiter then approached the table with the bill that we hadn’t requested, and as I went outside to ring for a lift the waiter came back over to mum and aunt and asked them to leave, he said we already had 10 minutes over our time. I certainly would not be back, if we had of been told in advance I wouldn’t have had an issue, but this completely ruined the afternoon as at 70 years of age my mum and aunt had never been asked to leave anywhere before and had been extremely embarrassed.
