Awful service. We waited 40 minutes to order and then another hour before being served. One dish was cold and sent back. There were other tables that had sat down after and order after U.S. But whom got their food before us.

Lovely atmosphere, tasty food and friendly efficient service. We had a table for 7 for lunch and the bill came to £100 with fancy smoothies and a main course each. We had two vegans, two veggies and one GF in the party and all were catered for very well, which is quite a feat in itself. Our waiter was friendly, helpful and completely unfazed by our demands.

Met with 8 friends for lunch. Great atmosphere and there was something for everyone on the menu. Waitressing staff were very friendly and engaged really well with my friends young son to make him feel comfortable.

Great food. Only disappointment was the unusual lack of a Sunday roast
