We had a pleasant meal here on a busy Saturday night. There was a late large Christmas party going on So consequently we had a 50 minute wait for steak and chips. The tiled walls make the acoustics rather noisy . I had heard loads of good things about this place and was very keen to try it. At the end of the day that industrial urban look and noise level isn’t my cup of tea. That being said it was a nice meal and the service was pleasant. We didn’t stay for a drink as we had had enough sitting around by then but the bar area did look really nice and inviting

It's a fab place to come on a Saturday afternoon for lunch with the kids without having to venture into town. Thank you for a relaxing time.

Gets very noisy and it’s difficult to have a conversation on the bigger tables, and I personally thought maybe the food could have been hotter.

Overall a nice bar but the food was pretty standard. The restaurant area was very cold and lacked atmosphere. Would probably rather haven eaten in the main bar area. Will Continue to go back for drinks but the food wasn't anything special.

I asked for well done steak, it came medium then it came back the plate was like a soup it obviously hadn’t been rested and the steak still wasn’t well done. The girls that were serving us were on their phones and talking while I was waiting to get their attention.

The main courses (4 burgers on the 2;1 offer were excellent. The spicy sausage starter was disappointing. the sausages were very hard with a poor mouthfeel. Otherwise the starters were good. We had a table for 4 in the middle and were slightly cramped by people squeezing past. Nice service though and enjoyed the night.

I booked a table reservation for 5 people for my wife's birthday. The meals were all lovely and the service was good too. The only disappointment was we found ourselves at a table within an alcove in the corridor which separated us from the restaurant and removed from the atmosphere. We also felt that each time anyone went along the corridor we were on view.
