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

Beautiful surroundings/Bar area. Unfortunately food wasn’t nice and service was very slow, one girl in particular was rude. I had the Nachos which were sloppy with very little beef and covered in a sauce that wasn’t tasty. Steak in the steak sandwiches were burnt, basic standard of cooking. The table service was very slow and hard to get a drinks order taken and had to ask for plates for birthday cake and then we had to speak to another member of staff for knifes and forks! The booking process was very easy and staff were helpful and we attended the venue a few weeks ago and had a great night which made us select the NW but food and slow/poor service let it down this time.

Booked the upstairs for a 40th birthday party. Very straight forward in relation to booking and ordering food. Good service from the bar tender. The food on the platter trays I ordered were delicious. We all had a really good day. Thank you.

Booking as table was easy and simple on their website. Service was attentive. Free iced water on the table. Food was great and tasty. I had Korean fried chicken - lovely flavours. I would go again.

Thank you to all the The Northern Whig who helped to cater for our party of 23 people last night. Everyone loved the food choice & quality, and a special thanks for catering for the dietary restrictions we required. We will be back!

Food was excellent. We were a party of 5 including 2 teenagers and the staff were lovely, chatting with the kids and making us all welcome. I asked for a different side to the one the dish was prepared with & the waitress couldn't have been more helpful in ensuring my request was seen to. Would definitely recommend.

Singer and music was just a little too loud. Didn't have 1 waiter, had a number which made ig a bit confusing for them. Quality of food and menu choice was excellent and good value for money. Would def recommend
