    Lovely food and absolutely lovely service. We were made to feel really welcome with our 2 year old and the grandparents. We were sat in a booth with a fab high chair attached to the table for my son, he loved it! The waiting staff were really nice and attentive. Really impressed 😊

    We were a group of 5 celebrating a big birthday we had a lovely evening staff were very friendly and helpful with cake and service, bar staff were great and made some amazing cocktails food was really good lots to choose from and catered for all dietary requirements. The lady on reception was really lovely friendly and helpful my only negative would be that there was a big party that took over the whole of the bar area so we didn’t have anywhere to sit for our pre drinks but other than that great evening.

    really wonderful atmosphere and the staff are just delightful . The food was ok , not as good as my last visit and i did think the mains were a bit pricey - well mine was as it was mostly rice with spices and a few mushrooms - but then i should have gone for the set menu which is excellent value for money..... For a cool night out in a great venue with lovely staff and fab cocktails i will definitely be back x
