Food quality and taste really good, wine list offers good price range from reasonable starting point. Service was smooth and effective, though we dined at a relatively quiet time. Decor in need of refurbishment - eg worn chairs and veneer coming off tables.

Jump the queue deal - £20 for three courses. Excellent food for the price, would definitely go back. Took a bit more like 1.5 hours than 45 mins but part of that was our slow ordering i think...

The set lunch menu is relatively good value, but the choices are fairly limited and not particularly adventurous, but it's a great setting. Walking down those stairs still feels fab after all those years.

We had book the “jump the Q” menu not realising that all the dishes (starter & main) were served at the same time! The waiter did explain at the outset but but we misunderstood, nevertheless the food was good although the mains were only warm by the time we finished our starter. We did mention this and the head waiter removed one of the extras from the bill.

Waiting staff are in too much of a rush to get you served and away from your table. They are constantly badgering you to order. I found this incredibly rude and made for a very disappointing evening as it felt rushed and not relaxing Or enjoyable. My table was booked for a special occasion and the behaviour of the staff ruined the evening.

Both the food and the service was brilliant, we couldnt have asked for more for the birthday celebrations. The live band on the night were also a joy to listen to and the volume of the music was such that you were still able to hold conversations at the table without having to shout to be heard. I would highly recommend this restaurant and we will no doubt be back again for several evenings of food and entertainment.

Don’t go..... so disappointed ....We arrived promptly for our booking at 6.30pm at 6.25pm. We were show to the bar but I suggested that perhaps we should save time and go to our table as we knew we only had the table for 2 hours. This had been made clear at the time of booking. Sadly our guests were caught in traffic and arrived at 6.45om. From that moment we sat down it felt like we were on a factory floor with meticulous timing, where time was certainly more important than customers. Staff buzzed around our table constantly checking their watches and moving proceedings along. We order quickly and the food came quickly. By 8pm we had finished starter and main courses and left alone. At 8.10 I suggested to one of the many waiters that it would be lovely to look at the desert menu and was told there would not be enough time to order desert and clear the table for the next guests. I was clearly disappointed and at 8.20 we were bought a small tray of little chocolate cakes with the bill which was £340.00 for 4 people. We were ushered off the table promptly and went upstairs to the bar, where we eventually spent another £230 on 4 rounds of drinks. (Wine and G&Ts) not champagne or cocktails! From the bar we looked down on the table we were sat at for dinner. The table remained empty until 9pm. We spent a lot of money to feel like we were on a production line. A lot of Staff constantly hovered around our table checking their watches. It was without a doubt the most uncomfortable I have ever felt in a restaurant.

The place is great and the Friday band brilliant. However, we had several issues during the diner:
- I was served soup without a spoon and asked twice before I got one, the soup was cold then.
- we weren’t served tap water despite asking a few times, same with the bread
- the red wine was tasting strange like blue cheese and the waiter didn’t agree to change/refund because we served 3 glass already (dis not drank them)
- one of my friend asked at the end for another glass and they brought a 500ml...
