Christmas menu and not all that appealing although a wide range. Some items not worth the price. Average service although better than some these days.

Lovely meal with friends, good atmosphere and choice of food. We did find the music rather loud, but we were under a speaker. However, didnt distract from a great lunch.

Can’t fault the server she was lovely and tried to help wherever she could but unfortunately lots of faults with our orders
Vegan burger came out frozen and was recooked but everyone else had finished their meal at this point. This was taken off the bill.
Drinks were disappointing and watery- specialist Gins were advertised to come with botanicals and fruit but came just with ice and a lemon.
Sirloin steak: size was tiny and fatty.
Poor choice of drinks

Somehow, all the team who served us were kind, fun and had a sense of humour. It feels like a great team culture. We felt welcomed and cared for. It was a great experience.

Fantastic place, fully recommend. The ambience, food and staff (especially Georgia :) were brilliant. The food was very slow to arrive, fortunately we were not in hurry so it wasnt an issue. As a good will gesture they removed 4 cocktails from the bill. Not sure if a one off but I would definately go back agian.

I went here with my teenagers. They loved the ambiance. Food was what my teenagers love… delicious burgers and snacks. I had a good time because it looked good, my teenagers were happy and the cocktails were decent.

The person that serviced us was efficient and even the person who was making the cocktails came over to explain to my sister in law about the none fizz drinks etc & he took his time to explain everything. But my truffle fries were cold and not very nice. My buttermilk burger was very nice and well made and not cold.

It was a pleasure to meet my Russian friend there. He thought it was very cool. My husband is vegan and enjoyed the cauliflower dish and my friend had the halumi chips. I think they were just ok- not crisp enough. Overall, we enjoyed our time there.
