We went here purely out of convenience. It was loud, like really loud. The food was pretty good. Typical bar menu - lots of choice. The service was poor. Waited ages for food and had to ask repeatedly for drinks etc.

Came for lunch with my dad and a bunch of friends on a really nice day. Staff were considerate, food was awesome! I will say though that the 2 carbonara dishes that came out were very inconsistent; one was perfect with lots of sauce and one was quite dry with the pasta:sauce ratio being off significantly. Overall though was extremely... More
