    Late ladies lunch. Super buzzy atmosphere, great service. Club sandwich was fabulous. Have already recommended to others, but do book. We did and doubt we would have got seated otherwise.

    Everything was incredible! Service, atmosphere and especially the food wasn’t just amazing. I couldn’t recommend this place any higher!

    Staff were super attentive which is just what you want. Drinks are amazing and portion sizes were great. I would, however, avoid the Falafel Wrap if you can't handle spicy food...there was no mention of chilli sauce being involved and that ruined the wrap which would have been perfect without it! The table size could have been a bit larger for the group as well.

    The service was excellent with a very attentive waiter. But the burger was very disappointing, when it arrived at the table it was like warm and the chips were cold. A friend had battered fish which was soggy and not crisp. Overall a very disappointing dining experience.
