I was very disappointed with the choice on the menu and then we were told that because they were changing the menu the following day some of the items on the menu were not available which made the choice even less.

We love this restaurant. Comfortable and cosy. We had a roast dinner and the veg was lovely but we all said the chicken was over cooked. Apart from that very nice

I’ve dined here a few times and enjoyed the food, I was disappointed that no gluten free beer is available but the assistant manager has indicated they may have it available in the near future. It’s good to hear management responding to customer disappointment. For couples looking for a romantic atmosphere it’s too brightly lit and those little things that make a difference are being overlooked. No table candles lit and no offer of bread rolls whilst waiting for main course. Up and coming restaurants make this effort and yet some established ones have let it go!

Where do I start... Evening was spent celebrating my wife’s birthday that was completely ruined by 2 large groups fighting. This happened early on in the evening where confrontation started to which my wife alerted the doorman and I alerted the bar staff. An hour or 2 passed and went outside to have a cigarette only to witness one or the group being thrown out one door and a full on brawl commenced. I turned to the doorman who just stood there not really acting upon. My wife was inside to went back in to find her coveted in our drinks and the continuance of the fight with about 8-10 people. Still no effective staff envolvement. After about 30 minutes all people were asked to leave. It was stated that one of the groups were asked to leave the bar next door through their behaviour. If this was the case, there has been no communication this may preventing a ruined evening for all.

Food was ok, average. Restaurant decor and set up is lovely. Service average. We were not asked if we wanted more drinks, we had to call waiter over and we ran out of water too. Overall an average dining experience.
