I’m afraid the food wasn’t great so wouldn’t recommend you to anyone. Poached egg cooked right though, steak well done and asked for medium rare. Chips unpleasant.

Late reservation that was lucky enough to be accommodated, first time for 2 people in the group. Overall we all happy with service and meals, a little discomfort with 2 of the meals served one was a little wrong, quickly fixed, and the other was not as expected and had food envy to the other 3 in group.... not so bad tbh. Would definitely go back all of us agree and would certainly recommend.

Only posted less stars on atmosphere due to it being a typical busy Saturday evening and it was quite loud in the dining area when trying to talk to each other! But with a party in too that’s expected.. Otherwise obviously lovely atmosephere etc. Loved the food and cocktails!! Friendly staff too

When we arrived we were told the table we had booked was still occupied and so we would have to sit in the bar. Which was table on its own away from anyone else. Which in my opinion defeats the object of booking a table. To be fair to the staff they compensated this by our first drinks being on the house. The table was away from the atmosphere and was basically in the staffs walkway. The bar stools were not comfortable to sit and eat a whole meal on. The food however was fine. Wouldn’t rush back!

Easy booking procedure online. Aware of us as soon as we arrived. Attentive staff, pleasant, friendly. Food first class, lots of choices. No rush to leave table despite being only allowed it for 2 hours.Loved the decor - would like the 'booth' next time. Amazing experience, will certainly recommend

I have been a few times previously and had a great experience but yesterday wasn't as good. Service was slow. There was a large group sat behind us which made it difficult to hear, the noise really echoes. It didn't help that they were obviously dissatisfied and complaining. On the plus side the food & drinks were really good, particularly the assiette of desserts. Another thing to mention, which wasn't a problem but could've been for others....I phoned before I booked to check it was wheelchair accessible but wasn't told to enter via a door around the back. My mum managed the few steps and the barman was really helpful but he did warn us that the access to the rear entrance wasn't the best terrain for a wheelchair so I'm not sure we would've managed if mum couldn't manage the few steps. Maybe worth making it clear on booking or improving the access.
