    We have had a nigh out with my boyfriend. Great modern food, amazing service. I will definitely recommend it to my friends and family.

    Bad experience overall. Quality of food was great, but we had to wait at least 30 minutes for each plate. We actually had to ask for our orders to arrive, since in the kitchen they got lost somewhere. At the end, we did not even receive everything we had ordered, even if what we had not received was in the final bill. The waitress (Elly) was kind and removed the dish we had not received, but this is not the kind of standard you expect for such a price and from such a well known place. Very disappointing.

    Had the £30 dinner and drink offer. No choice of cocktail and dessert was ample and good but first 2 courses were rather small plates.

    I had dinner with my girlfriend last Friday and we had the 30£ set menu. Despite the food was really good and we really enjoyed it, unfortunately, some things were not a really high standard and the service wasn't great. First of all, in the menu, there was no mention that the choice of the cocktail had to be made on only one cocktail (a lemon one) - we were expecting a bit more of selection, sincerely. When I said that to the waitress, she told me "Isn't that fancy enough for you?". My girlfriend and I were quite shocked that she could say something like that! Moreover, she also said "Trust me, it's really good. We had training last Friday and we all tested and liked it". Even though the cocktail was indeed good, I don't really think that was the best and most professional way to talk to a customer! Moreover, when my girlfriend asked the waitress if she could have a non-alcoholic version of the same cocktail, she was responded that that was not possible, unless if paying extra.
