    The food was fine - but my word - the cocktails were weak. Worse than weak. Either there was hardly any spirits in them or the spirits have been watered down significantly.

    We had ciphranas and Margerittas and after the first couple of rounds I queried the lack of quality of the drinks (it was like drinking a kids squash drink) the next round was equally bad.

    Beyond awful and really surprised to experience that kind of situation in an established high street brand/franchise.

    Food was delicious and the cocktails were very good, especially the iguana Cosmo. The bar service was very slow though. We ordered more cocktails when our main course arrived and didn't get them until we'd finished eating.

    Very very helpful staff, got a table with high chairs had someone in party with bad back and they changed us to normal chairs straight away. Lovely food had the festival set menu which was excellent

    Was great that the rear of the site is more 'resauranty' and the front more for louder drinkers of mojito's and margharita's.
    Service was friendly, well-informed, and fairly efficient. Food was delicious.
