    Took 15 mins to get served at the bar waiting for our table. Staff working very hard just not enough of them. Bar staff had no idea how to interact with customers. First table was right under the aircon so too cold, second table better however the room was generally cold. Burgers were good, chips and tots so so. Music too loud even for my 21 year old. Overall disappointing, the staff tried but rushed off their feet.

    Had a little bit of a wait for food seeing as it wasn't that busy when we arrived. Worth the wait as the food was all great, the staff were friendly and helpful. The music playlist they had on the go was also awesome. Will return 100%

    All things been great, good food, services. The only downside is the food serving time is way too long. Almost an hour wait for the food which you don’t expect it from a burger place.

    We came at a great time, the last day there was an offer on the burgers. My friend ordered one and she said they tasted great. I had the winning fries and teriyaki wings they were yummy. The music was great too.. it was fun to hear Rancid and Yellowcard playing. ☺️ The ladies bathrooms are perfect for taking pictures. The lighting is 👌🏼✨ Thanks for having us!

    Food wasn’t hot when it arrived , it was sat on the pass fir awhile as could see it Charging for service when all you bought was 1 lot of drinks and 1lit of food is not acceptable no one came to see if we wanted more drinks , we can’t get up and get our own food and drink that is part and parcel of what goes with coming to a restaurant and there wasn’t many of us !! Food was tasty as always

    Went for the bottomless brunch. The food was all nice, I knew what to expect as I have been plenty of times before. The portion sizes of the fries in bottomless brunch were smaller than what you would normally get (around half the size), which is a little disappointing. The cocktails also just came in a tumbler glass, and the Cherry Bomb cocktail came without the “fireworks” too, losing its wow factor and making it a bit underwhelming on arrival. But like I said, the food and drink was all nice. We went at 2:45 on a Saturday so it was pretty busy during our time and it seemed that the serving staff were rushed off their feet. There were times when we were waiting 10-15 minutes for our drink after ordering so it felt like we couldn’t get the full value of the bottomless drinks. They also got 2 drink order wrong and one of the fries wrong but we didn’t complain as we didn’t want to be waiting another 10 minutes or more.

    Slow service, waited an hour and 15 minutes for our food. Poor service, had to keep asking for the waiter to come over (and yet still had to pay the 10% service charge as it was added to the bill) Food (chicken burger) was far too salty

    On arrival, the man at the front of house was really good, however after that the service went down hill. Took too long to order the drinks and food and the drinks were sat at the bar for over 5 minutes before I got up and collected them myself, one of these was sent back as the lager was flat. The food was okay but not as good as previous times. There was then an issue where we were asked to move table due to a mix up with the bookings I mentioned to front of house about this and he was very apologetic and offered to send some recompense via email but I am yet to receive this

    The food was excellent as it always is. I found the music a bit loud. Friends could talk without shouting. The room was a bit chilly, needed a little heat in the room. The service was slow at the start but then great.

    Only reason it’s not 5 starts across the board is cus we waiting over an hour for our food. Booking at 9, food dropped 10:13. Only reason we didn’t leave is cus we hadn’t eaten most of the day and our waitress was a G - Hold tight Pippa for bringing back the wings that were out. Yeah aside from that SENSATIONAL love

    We waited 30 mins before our order was taken and then a further 30 minutes for food. We also had to go up to the waiter to pay for our meal at the end as couldn’t get anyone’s attention.
