    We enjoyed what we ordered and were served by a very friendly team.However,they had run out of several dishes and also wines which I thought was poor management.

    We booked for 6pm but arrived early and they managed to fit us in. Food was good with a gluten free option but the best bit were the very friendly staff. It was my mums birthday and we'd taken a cake and they went out of their way to have fun with her. It made her day

    Been there six months ago and they were out of stock on a number of ingredients, last night same again at least five dishes not available on a menu which is basic to say the least.Food for all at the party was just ok. Two of the same main coming out with obviously not the same ingredients, possibly run out. Nice ambient but they need to put they act together. Staff very polite.
