Great afternoon for a spot of lunch and drinks with friends. Visited for the 2nd time. Staff were super helpful and happy to assist when required. Food was lovely, had the lemon chicken and was delicious. Critique - gin tasted a little bland with my tonic, and the lady who was clearing our table away took mine and my friends drink away too quickly, it wasn’t finished! Apart from that was great. Would return!

The food was nice and good value for money and the views were spectacular; what a lovely setting. However clearly as a company you give very little care or regard for your customers, where social distancing upstairs on the roof terrace was non-existent. You shoe-horn customers sitting on tiny Tables not only within one metre but arguably within quarter of a metre next to one another! What is the point of your ‘one way system’ (which did not really work due to being poorly signposted anyway); when you sit people practically on top of one another. There were multiple groups of people noticeably very uncomfortable with the set up. We and another couple left prematurely due to the very poor social distancing. Staff were Non-accommodating and rude at times including when asked if we could move tables due to the size of the table not being big enough to fit plates on or eat from, which when you book a reservation for dinner is a bit farcical. I understand times are tough but surely the health and well-being of customers should come first!

The queuing system worked downstairs and we were luckily sat on the rooftop with space to socially distance. However we watched other tables less than half a meter away from other tables. The staff came too close and weren’t wearing masks. It was quite scary. We stayed for one tasty but very expensive drink and then left.

Great day, really easy system to navigate through with everything going on but still had a “normal” time. Our waitress was so lovely - definitely made the table service that much better

Lovely venue up amongst the rooftops of this historic town. Great cocktails as well. Well done to the staff who had to deal with typical ‘Karen’ who was moaning about everything, don’t bother going out next time love, you obviously don’t know how to act in public!

Had a fab time in the pod. Only criticism was that it was really cold inside, we had to keep our coats on. The one small fan heater did not keep it warm.
