Visited last Saturday at lunch time, lovely interior we sat in the bar area and ordered some drinks. The waitress brought our drinks didn't offer any menus so we chose from the blackboard. The waitress said she was going to get her order pad but never returned to us despite working behind the bar with us in full view. We... More

Went for a drink but there was only one guy on the bar it took 25 minutes to get a cider. The guy didn't speak or apologise. Takes ages when the priority is cocktails! Get someone else behind the bar !

We hadn't booked but on a busy Saturday night at 7pm the staff found us a table in the very attractive conservatory. Mozzarella sticks to start which was a big portion and enough to share between two. Crispy outer with soft melted inner and a salsa dip. Very tasty. 17 year old son had chicken burrito that he thought was... More

Service was slow albeit a busy Saturday afternoon. We ordered at 1 and were served at just before 2. Expensive. £8 for a tuna sandwich which arrived as one slice of sourdough open 'sandwich' salad n slaw. The homemade tortillas were good. We stayed a while in the relaxed bar area with an iced coffee that was good.

It was okay, nothing too fancy. We expected a separate room to have our party in. But we had an area curtained off to everyone else, the dinner came out later than expected, some of the food wasn't heated to the correct temperature and there was plastic found in someone's meal. We won't be coming here again. Staff were helpful... More

Great cocktails. We didn't eat but the food looked good. There is a covered area where you can smoke - which since mostly smokers are pariahs is a bonus

Absolutely terrible Mother's Day lunch, took 20 mins to take our order, we were forgotten about twice! The food was awful! Not to mention the amount of salt that was on my toddlers meal.. horrendous amounts! 2nd time we've been now and it's been terrible both times 100% will not be returning again!
