    Great night, food was lovely and the place had a nice and relaxed vibe. The only criticism I have is that afterwards I liked the Facebook page and saw a promotion was running to try the new menu and receive a discount if you came between certain times. We were a bit disappointed this wasn't offered to us when we got to the actual resturant but overall it was good

    The restaurant got busier as the evening progressed and had a great atmosphere. The food was delicious; recommend the steak. Service was a tad slow at times but the place did get pretty packed. Waiting staff were always very friendly and were happy to accommodate substitutions.

    We have visited the restaurant on three other occasions , and have previously been very very happy with the food and service and recommended to others . We were not as happy with the food on our most recent visit, I am not sure if the menu has been changed. I asked for no cheese on a burger, yet it arrived with cheese, this was replaced fairly quickly however the burger was not hot enough when it arrived . My husband had a pulled pork sandwich which had an accompanyment of cold red cabbage, he did not note this on the menu, this had a negative affect on the flavour and also reduced the temperature of the food. From our most recent visit I wouldn't recommend

    We had a lovely evening with our son and his girlfriend, the food was amazing. The wine was recommended by the waitress which was also very good. A great night out.

    The decor was very fitting for the menu. The staff were very friendly and attentive and the service was very good - gave you enough time to enjoy your drinks and chat between courses but not enough time to wonder where your food was. The foot itself was incredible the burgers were huge service with twice cooked chips and toasted brioche burger buns. The vegetarian burger was cooked to perfection and utterly delicious. We went for the chocolate pave pudding with salted caramel sauce and peanut butter dust - incredible. Cannot wait to go back!

    Staff downstairs in the bar were very helpful getting drinks and arranging seating. The atmosphere was laid back with funky décor. Food was excellent but everything let down by inattentive staff. Wasn't offered more drinks during the meal and plates were slow to be taken away.

    I've been looking forward to eating here after the menu (a readable one) finally hit the website. Had already visited for an excellent cocktail just after its opening last year and was keen to venture upstairs and sample the food. I'd reserved a table for two and after arriving on time was met at the door and promptly shown to our table. Menus were delivered and drinks orders taken with the same efficiency, so far so good. I'd pretty much decided that I was going for a standard sirloin steak but after looking at the specials menu I decided to go for a flat iron steak with lentils and chorizo. The menu wasn't particularly clear whether sides orders were necessary but the waitress was able to talk me through the dish and no sides were necessary. My dining companion who isn't a huge steak fan was prompted by me not to go for his default burger, but as a non-seafood eater choices were somewhat limited. A pulled pork dish was on the menu but again it wasn't clear what exactly made up the dish and if sides were necessary. So he ordered a side of mash only to be told that the dish did indeed come with fries. We opted against starters so there did appear to be a bit of a wait so next time I should probably order some olives or bread, but there was sufficient time to enjoy my cocktail - a great mix of whiskey and berries. Food arrived after around 20 minutes and mine was perfect - a beautifully cooked piece of flat iron steak on a bed of lentils and chorizo with a broccoli puree. It was fantastic and the waitress had been spot on with her advice. My dining companion however was not so fortunate as he was given a wooden board with a small metal bucket of fries and a rather sad looking brioche bun filled with pulled pork. Whilst the pulled pork was good it wasn't particularly inspiring and resembled the kind of takeout food you might get from a German market stall for half the price. So very much a meal of two halves.

    Went to try out with family (2 young daughters) on a friday night. Cocktails were good with olives, and staff very attentive and kept us informed, including making sure we knew how long the food would take to come. We asked for the children's food to come as soon as possible and there were ok delays. Our steak (Tomahawk) was very tasty. We were warned it would take 30 (ish) minutes to cook. The only negative was that our red wine arrived cold, it would have been easy for them to have simply warned the bottle in the kitchen for 5 minutes and we wouldn't have even noticed the delay. We will return!

    Outstanding selection of Bourbons and very personable bar staff. Service was friendly but let down by long wait for food (our server said that one of the chefs had been sent home) Ribs were sticky and meaty,if slightly under seasoned, steak cooked brilliantly, burger delicious. No time for dessert due to aforementioned delayed arrival of mains.
