Popped in for a quick coffee on a lazy Sunday afternoon. Really quick and friendly service and the coffee is great. We will definitely go back to check out the menu next time as the food being served to tables around us looked lovely!

Liked this trendy bar, nice outside seating area, lots of atmosphere and obviously very popular with locals. Ordered several sharing dishes, all good and decent wine. Service was friendly and efficient, thought prices a bit on the high side but overall a pleasant visit.

Ask the bar staff (at least the lady who serves us) about gin - they are super knowledgeable and will recommend some cracking drinks. Nice courtyard out the front.

Decided to have brunch here due to it being busy and the food looking good. However, the food was rather disappointing. It looked so much better than it tasted. My boyfriend had steak and eggs, he asked for it medium rare but it came well...More

Yes I totally agree, Tripadvisor should take down that review immediately. They are opening themselves up to a lawsuit for defamation. Anybody who actually knows folk will know that it s either Fake or erroneous.
