We were a party of 14 and for saying we were a large group ( and a little loud at times!) we couldn’t have been looked after any better. We had a gorgeous meal, the young lady saw to all our needs and requests. We were booked in at 3.30 and didn’t leave till 6.45pm, we wasn’t rushed and to sit and enjoy a few cheeky cocktails after was a nice treat. We will definitely be back ❤️

Fairly small portions, but good quality otherwise. A bit pricey overall, especially when factoring in the 20% service charge (of which we were not aware). Staff told us at the end that menu prices for drinks were apparently 'incorrect' when we asked about why we got charged more for the Inedit pints...

The service was brilliant, all of the staff make you feel welcome and are clearly very knowledgeable about the food and drinks. The food was delicious; the portion sizes seemed small, but I was full by the end of the meal. The cocktail choices were very interesting and unique. Overall, it was a fantastic experience. I look forward to dining again.

Everything was lovely, Kiana was a fabulous host. The food was delicious, but would have really liked more of it. The main course was about the right size, but starters and deserts needed to be much bigger to be value for money and were too tasty to have so little of them. Over all a great evening out and enjoyed the live music too.

Honestly could not fault the food was great and the little touches in the place were spot on, ALL the staff we met were great but massive shout to the barman ... as soon as we walked in he made us feel very welcome and was an excellent host. As Arnie said "I'll be back" 👌👌😘
