However I consider some of the food to be slightly over priced considering other menus in the area and would normally only visit on a special occasion. I also feel sometimes the... More

The rest of us had to wait over an hour before we got a thing., even though we enquired at least 3 times as to where our food was. It was ridiculous especially as diners who can in after us were...

Food was fine when we eventually got it. We arrived in for the last booking at 9.00 on Satuarday. We ordered drinks and food as normal. The place was very busy and they started serving food to about half our group( total 16 people) after 20 mins or so which was fine. The other half of our group including myself... More

Chicken wings & some Tapas were the order & we were pleasantly surprised as the... More

Nice bar but thought food was overpriced. Staff were nice but thought menu was very limited. Got the sliders but thought they were very bland. OK for snacks but don't go if you're hungry
