    Food was lovely. The atmosphere was a bit lacking but then it was very quiet for a Friday night. Service was great and prices reasonable.

    Had a really nice night - food was delivered really quickly for a Saturday night and cocktails were fantastic. The five-bean chilli was especially delicious!

    I would never go back again the food was awful and over priced and the kitchen staff clearly hadn't a clue. The manager did refund us part of the bill she was very nice but the night was ruined as it was a birthday treat . Cold over cooked food left standing on the pass for 20 mins before it was brought over . Raw steak and soggy chips and clueless staff . Overall a complete disaster .

    The meals were excellent apart from the fact that the two fish dishes were cold and my meal was delivered later than the others. We were offered 25% off the food which was generous but we would have preferred that the food had been perfect in the first place. The service we received was first class.
