                                  I booked a table here a few days before wanting to visit everything went through fine my booking was co firmed and then I turned up on the day with my friends (who had traveled 1hr to come down to Brighton) and it was closed for refurbishment but I had not been called or sent an email notifying me of this!

                                  Food was great but let down by short staffed (waited at least 20 minutes before we even got a menu!) However server was very good when she finally got to us. Also not happy American Express was not accepted - should be customers choice how to pay.

                                  Great venue and my food was great. My partners steak wasn’t cooked rare per request. Service was slow, I had to ask the barman for drinks and food order wasn’t taken promptly.

                                  We booked the NYE meal last min so didn’t realise it was a set menu. That being said the food was all delicious, we both had the fillet steak and it was cooked beautifully. The only negative I would say is the staff are nice but very slow and forgetful, we ordered a beer and it took 45 mins to tell us they didn’t have it in, it arrived an hour after we sat down.

                                  Booked a table in the restaurant for Sunday lunch. We’d been there before and had a lovely meal. We were placed in the cafe area and told the restaurant would close shortly (despite lots of people sat in there). Service was appalling - no enthusiasm, smiles or interest. Venue would be great for funerals. We left after the menus arrived - didn’t want to waste a Sunday. Zero effort from staff.

                                  Minimal food options for gluten free diners. Even the one main course that was advertised as GF came covered in gluten.

                                  Arrived at 20:41 for our 20:30 booking. The manager told us sorry the kitchen is closed and couldn’t serve us anything. There were options to book at 21:00 onwards so a bit strange. Had to turn around and try finding another restaurant!

                                  Have been a few times and always loved the place. Service was slow on this occasion to begin with and we sat in a booth and the lighting was awful - felt like you were being interrogated. A family member also had a bad experience on service recently as well. Will make sure we sit elsewhere in the future.. the food is good but feel like somethings changed in the last month staff wise. Hope it changes back to the usual attentive and friendly place it was.

                                  I had lunch here mid-week and was disappointed to find that the menu was not the same as the day menu on the OpenTable site and was fairly limited, mainly offering brunch options. We wanted to order the mac and cheese from the kids menu as a starter but were told this wasn't possible. In the end my friend had the squid as a starter, which was good, but my prawns were overcooked and mushy. For the main, I had to go for the brunch option which was fine but not what I had booked the venue for. On the plus side, the staff were friendly and helpful.

                                  I was very disappointed to find the restaurant closed with no warning and a wasted trip out in the damp dark autumn evening.

                                  Terrible Sunday roast. Most people in the restaurant looked as appalled with the food as well. Waitress did her best but seemed ashamed of what was coming out of the kitchen

                                  Great food, nice place. Service was a little muddled at times but I think that may have been because there was an obviously very new member of staff. Everyone was very friendly though. Would I go back? Definitely.

                                  First impressions were that this was a rather disorganised establishment. Made a booking but they didn’t seem to want to know and we were allocated a table as though we were chance customers. 10 minutes in to being seated and we were still awaiting menus. Eye contact was difficult with staff on duty but eventually we were able to get the teams attention and begin our evening. After our first initial experience things began to pick up and the team showed great knowledge when it came to my partners dietary requirements. Food combinations were good, great balance, combination and textures. Some interesting combinations. Drinks were good though our orders were hit and miss in terms of delivery. By that I mean we ordered but drinks seemed to be misplaced and had to be requested again. Perhaps inexperience during these difficult times and lack of hospitality staff. However wasn’t the end of the world. In all, lovely setting for our first meal in Brighton. Food was certainly the standout of the whole experience. Would highly recommend.

                                  First time out for dinner during/after pandemic and was great, staff had lots going on but were so lovely, great friendly service from everyone. Food came quick and was really good. Cocktails really nice too. Waited for one drink but I mean Saturday night that’s to be expected so not a complaint just saying if that’s the worst thing it’s all good in my opinion! They couldn’t have been nicer, food & drink lovely so that to me equals a great place.

                                  Amazing food. A little cold in the restaurant as all the doors were open. We had an issue with missing food which the staff rectified but on reflection, we could have been better compensated due to the lengthy wait of our meal.

                                  Had a bit of a friction with the server who told us that we weren’t able to take the service charge off the bill. Then I showed him the menu where it says that it’s discretionary. I only wanted to pay in cash and less than the 12.5% because the wait for food was over an hour.

                                  We ordered our food from the counter. Although the choices were limited, the food was good and of excellent value. The cakes were particularly good.
