Various items not available but not told until you select it. Also had to ask the waitress to take off the £10 wine offer from the bill. This should be taken off without having to ask. Also adding the 12% service charge has opposite effect. Always ask for it to be removed, its my decision if i leave a tip not yours!

I was disappointed by our visit, the staff ignored us when we first arrived and then seemed to take a long time to take our order, there seemed to be a lot of staff walking past, chatting at their till and not really giving attention to the customers. So overall not a welcoming experience.

Good food, not great, service that tries hard but falls down, room temperature - freezing!
The wait staff were friendly but busy and likely distracted. Initial drinks order didn’t come until after 3 reminders to two different staff members and lunch nearly finished. Children’a meals came out last - after adult starter and mains. And then the wrong child’s order was brought which was eaten regardless as the poor 3 year old was starving by then! A 12.5% service charge is then not deserved nor appreciated.

The aircon was freezing and, despite twice asking to adjust it (and staff member saying they would), all 4 of us ended our lunch in our coats!

It wasn’t a complete disaster and thus my scoring was not overly harsh but management needs to get a grip.

Nice waiting staff, kitchen could make up for the no longer available vegan burger via improvising another burger. Well done!

We had a great lunch! Our table was hidden away in a corner so we could chatter away to our heart’s content (3 Uni friends’ first meeting in decades) . Service was quick and our waitress always seemed to be there when needed. The food was great 2 had the classic burger with cheese and bacon and one had steak and eggs washed down with Chenin Blanc. £31 each including tip. Bargain! The place was very busy but the atmosphere was great. Definitely will go again. Thank you.

Noisy group next to us meant we were less than a foot apart and still couldn’t hear each other. Starter and main were nice, dessert was awful. Food and drinks took an age to appear. Complained about the noise to the server who said “It’s like that a lot” rather than asking them to reduce their volume. Spoilt my wife’s birthday meal. We’ve been here on 4 other occasions and not had this experience. Soured our opinion of the restaurant. Unlikely to return.

We waited an hour for food, not ideal on a short lunch break.
Ordered extra sauces which came when we'd practically finished food. Restaurant wasn't busy and they had ample staff.

Food and atmosphere fantastic. Not happy about the service charge added to the bill. Although it says optional, the waitress just put the total amount including the service charge in to the card machine.

We ordered two traditional breakfasts and pancakes for my daughter . After ordering we were told there was no pancakes left, so we ordered a burger and chips for my daughter. She said it was tasty and the chips were lovely but the burger was black and hard. We weird over an hour for the breakfasts to come, they had forgotten our order and when it finally came after my daughter had finished her food , our breakfast was cold . Our tea came just after we ordered , this also came cold and we couldn’t drink it with our breakfast . Staff members were very friendly however we asked the same member of staff in 3 occasions for sauce and she forgot .
