    Good for Sunday brunch. Bussling with a nice atmosphere. Fairly good food but a bit overpriced.

    The restaurant was a delightful brunch experience and I enjoyed the food. The only thing we did not particularly enjoy was the way it felt so obvious that our server was trying to increase our bill "casually" - asking us if you can "bring" bread and olives without mentioning that this will add £5 to the bill or listing those items on the menu is quite sneaky and unappreciated - we paid it but it left a sour taste in our mouth. I also ordered a juice and the server asked me 3-4 times if I wanted a refill and I continually said no - this was very annoying - if I say no once, stop asking me if I want more juice until I indicate otherwise. When our food came, there were also 2-3 suggestions made of what we should order to accompany the dish - which were again seen as attempts to just uptick the bill with items we expressed no interest in - it would be helpful if you suggested 1 item but not so many and so frequently. At the end of the meal, I felt I was being sold to during brunch and almost guilty for not saying yes, I want all of these things - a very bizarre feeling to have in a restaurant - please tone that down a bit and put the costs of these items on your menu.

    Great, friendly service and great food. The cocktails are fab! Made to feel very welcome from initial greeting, being served and leaving the restaurant.

    Great restaurant and varied menu so there was something for everyone. Slightly cramped for 5 of us round our corner table.
    Would definitely return.

    Food was good- service was great. The place itself is nice but it is way too loud. The acoustics are terrible. Unable to speak to my partner so we left and got another drinks someplace else. A shame
