This place is more of a pub with average food. But the location and view are great, and even though we visited on a very sunny day in August it was nice and relaxed as not too busy. I would say if passing and you...More

It seems as though this place has no identity and doesn't know what do to with itself. The menu is extremely overpriced and all over the place, a mixture of Persian and British dishes. The staff are friendly enough but the owners/management are not so....More

At £1.90 for a pint of lime and soda this is EXORBITANT. For the same price I could have bought a 4 x 1 litre bottles of soda AND a bottle of lime cordial at Asda! Lassitude abounds and there needs to be at least...More
