The service commenced very well but then went downhill when all we wanted was a glass of tap water - had to ask 3 times before it arrived. Otherwise a lovely evening.

Steak was amazing, cooked to perfection. Had a beautiful red wine to go with it. We had options 1&3 with our steak. Could not recommend enough. Had a mixture of starters to share to begin could not fault in any way!!

Food and drinks great. It was a bit loud in the restaurant area, being a couple versus groups, but that would also be down to the building as well. Would come back on a different night hoping it would be a little quieter noise wise. Helpful and polite service.

Great night, we all thoroughly enjoyed it & will most definitely return, just a couple of minor things, we felt the portion size of the monkfish was quite small compared to other dishes but extremely tasty & well cooked. The cocktails we had were lovely but thought maybe the Kings Speach could have had a garnish, tiny criticism but a lovely drink all the same. Flat Iron Steaks got a massive thumbs up! Service & Staff great
