Disappointing visit. Service wasn't good at all... we waited nearly 25 mins before anyone came to tell us about the menu or take a drinks order. We weren't offered any bread even though other tables were. Or told about the drink offers like other tables. Service was slow between courses. And the food wasn't up to usual standards... my mussels were salty and my husband venison dish was cold in parts And not a very big piece of meat either for a £15 + dish.

I’ve eaten here four times over the last 5 weeks or so and I’m always so impressed. The food is always outstanding and the staff are so friendly. Absolutely my favourite place to eat in Hull, can’t wait to be back!

Starters were lovely. Ambience was a bit stuffy, full of pretentious twats talking about how much money they earned. Drinks were overpriced. I asked for a large wine thinking the price of £6.80 was dear enough the waitress said oh no that’s only for a medium. Then the same girl kept not delivering things we had asked I.e asked for a jug of water which never arrived so had to ask another waitress. Asked for the bill off the same lady that never got us our water and she did the same thing, didn’t bring us our bill? Had to ask someone else again? Also main meal was cold so Hubby had to eat his alone and he felt awful as I had to send mine back. Then I had to eat alone, which spoilt the night. No real offer of an apology or a free drink as they knew we were sat unhappy. Also whilst waiting for my meal to be re heated they waitress almost made out like they were doing me a favour? And it took that long I thought they had made me a new one. Oh no, there was my half eaten sausage plonked on top! Real bad night. Will not be going again and not recommending to anyone.

Food was lovely but there were lots of things that weren’t available on the menu. The lager we were drinking ran out so we had to change, the Prosecco we had ran out also so we couldn’t have another bottle. Service wasnt great, the girl who opened our bottle of Prosecco spilt it all over the table and floor and didn’t apologise or make up for it so we paid £26 for 3/4 of a bottle of Prosecco. The side we ordered was wrong and had to be sent back. The food we had was lovely - service needs to be improved though.

Very disappointed. We visited after recommendations and we felt hugely disappointed, it started as we walked in at 4pm to be told our table wasn’t ready. Then we was left waiting until it was, once taken to our table we waited for drinks 10 minutes. Followed by complimentary bread at 4.35, at this point we had to ask for another drink we wasn’t asked. Our plates wasn’t cleared away, our main came and it was a poor effort. 2 bits of broccoli 2 bits of cauliflower 4 carrots 4 parsnips (which was solid) to share between 2. Our roast potatoes was rock solid... when asked if everything was ok my partner pointed it out about how our food was which took 50/55 minutes to come...! Baring in mind we was the only couple sat at the time up stairs it wasn’t busy. The member of staff walked down stairs and practically shouted table 12 are not happy and up came another member off staff and we was just fobbed off saying that they’d served the same all day and we was the only ones to have complained!! And said it would be passed on that’s all she could do. We then had to go down and ask for the hull as we was leaving as no staff was coming upstairs to check we was ok or if we wanted anything else, which we would have had desert but we just wanted to leave. This is the first complaint we’ve ever made. We won’t return in a hurry.

Our forth visit here. Food excellent as usual, but disappointingly we had to wait nearly one hour before our main was served. The starter was a simple affair, so we could not understand the long wait. At least it was worth waiting for !

First time we have eaten here on a friend's recommendation. Excellent food and service, staff very friendly. Covid protocols were clear and adhered to by all staff and customers. Have already recommended to several friends and plan to return soon.
