    We had the 3 course lunch (2.0pm), lovely food good portions, but struggled with the desert. Staff were all very pleasant and attentive could not be faulted.

    We entered the premises to find a very full bar area with a lively atmosphere. The restaurant staff were very helpful & attentive without being overbearing. The choice of food on the special offer (3 courses for £19.95) was somewhat limited but reasonable. The time from ordering to serving was very good & there was no rush between courses. The food was satisfactory, but not great - on a par with the price we paid. The beer was rather expensive £4.30 for a 300ml bottle of Chang lager ! But overall a good night was had by all.

    Food was nice was the deal price. Service was slow- nearly 2 hrs in total waiting from arrival to dessert then another 15mins trying to get bill. Wouldn’t mind but there was only 3 other small tables during this time. Won’t be rushing back

    Although 20 minutes late, due to a train issue, the staff made us very welcome and looked after us superbly.

    Initially not a good feeling about this place. It was early evening but despite it being a lovely warm day outside the restaurant was blowing freezing cold air at me so I was uncomfortable with my bare legs. Fortunately the wonderful waiter, Igor, got me a blanket and once I warmed up I enjoyed the experience much more. I started with the butternut squash and ginger soup and this was probably the best soup I've ever eaten. The main course not so special but ok. On the whole it was a reasonable dining experience and I would like to thank Igor for his excellent service,

    Good food but the restaurant was cold. Had to put our coats on so we won't be rushing back unless it's a warm day and we can sit outside.

    Excellent food - all the courses were delicious and the puddings to die for! The service was great with very friendly and attentive waiting staff. £19.99 for 3 courses and a glass of prosecco - fabulous
