stopped here for lunch. ordered 3 items but only 2 arrived, I ordered a starter (duck) with a portion of chips, but only the chips arrived. They apologised- saying that a fault with their new 'system' had meant the kitchen did not get the duck order, so they would make it asap. Unfortunately after about 10 minutes I had finished...

Come here regularly as I only live down the road and it's amazing. The burgers are amazing and my friends and I especially enjoy coming here on weekend nights as the music is banging and the cocktails are awesome. Love this place!

My friend and I found a table and sat down then were ignored. After a while we realised that we may have to go... More

One front of house woman heavily pregnant doing a very professional welcoming job. Another woman with the same professionalism as back up, both serving pretty good food. Compliments to the chef. ...... Shame 'the lad' staff members swanned in an out strutting their stuff doing very little.

Went for a drink in the vault. Ordered two mint milkshakes on separate orders. Both drinks came out as mint hot chocolates. My friend returned her drink and got told the hot chocolates was in fact what she ordered when in fact it wasn't, the staff all made her feel uncomfortable while stood at the bar but said they would...
