    The food didn't match the photos on the Web site, disappointing and expensive, fish looked pre frozen from a well known frozen food shop, signature hanging kebab was reduced to 4 pieces of chicken with 2 small pieces of onion and 2 small pieces of pepper, £4 for a side salad that wouldn't fit in the palm of your hand, £2.50 for a small glass of lemonade

    Steak was meant to be medium but mostly raw was also meant to be served with “salad” which turned out to be a few green leaves. All accompaniments had to be purchased as extras. Staff not particularly interested in the fact steak was raw they could only say they were busy! Generally poor value for money.

    Good restaurant, steak was cooked perfectly and was a really good quality piece of meat, truffle fries and house salad were excellent. Staff friendly. Cocktails were good too. Was rather warm, no windows open or discernable ac. The only disappointment was the onion rings which were extensive for what appeared to be straight from the supermarket freezer, out of keeping south the rest of the meal which was superb.

    Service was very slow, and our order was wrong in a number of different ways. Staff where very friendly and helpful, but details are not their strong point. Food was good but in my opinion a little over priced. Also tried to order deserts and was told the kitchen is closed, despite main courses still being served on another table. Could be a very good restaurant with a little better organising

    Great food, really poor service which I think was driven by not enough staff. The ground floor was completely full when we arrived so we were seated upstairs (only ones when we arrived) and subsequently we didn’t see much of the service staff. To order drinks I had to seek out a member or staff as there hadn’t been anyone to the table for so long. Shame as the food had a lot of potential.

    I would definitely recommend the food, however the service (due to floor staff as the bar had made them within 5 minutes) was slow and didn't receive our drinks for 30 minutes although this happened, as we left the owner had apologised and gave us a free round of drinks, the service recovery was good and definitely made us feel like we would come back again, overall it is definitely worth a try as the atmosphere and food was great!

    Was having our starter when the main courses arrived. The waitress offered to take it away to be kept warm, including the salad garnish? When the senior waitress came to collect our plates she departed telling us she would bringvthe bill immediately - we didn't ask for it! There's a problem at this joint as even the couple behind us was complaining to the owner. Would never recommend this restaurant.

    Food was nice, price was slightly above average. However service was the real issue, I had a table booked prior to going but staff had no idea about this, first waitress had no interest in being there, no interaction and no pleasantries at all, I don’t expect the world but a couple of simple hellos, and what the restaurant offers would go along way. The worst part was when the bill arrived I took my card out and placed it on the table waiting for the card machine, only for the other waitress to walk past the table with the card machine, say nothing to myself or my partner, and scan the card machine on my card before walking off, again without saying anything. Im not one to usually be bothered about service, however it was particularly poor attitude and service!

    Very nice location centrally located in Durham. Drinks and food menu was varied enough to offer something for everyone in our group. Starters & mains were ordered the starters arrived in good time, mains were a little slow 25mins after starters were cleared away to arrive. Food was excellent, service was great. Would definitely come again.

    Usually a lovely meal but both were only slightly warm which was a bit disappointing. Didn’t seem enough staff My son who is 23 found the comments “this is for you young man” when being given the bill a bit condescending
