I was here recently with friends for dinner during the week and I cannot fault my experience. The food was delicious, service was great and staff were very friendly. I would recommend the calamari to anyone planning to go here!

Ate here last weekend with the gf and we both were very happy with the food but the main selling point for us was the atmosphere! It's quite dark and very cool.

A group of 10 of us visited here recently for a Saturday lunch - the group included 4 children aged from 2 months to 4 years. It was one of our more enjoyable family lunches- the kids menu was good, they were given lots of stuff to do colouring with and the staff were very patient. Food was great, everybody... More
