Service was quite long appricate that staff is an issue with covid but we got our food before drinks.
Lady brought out 2 pancakes but did not pre warn the plates were VERY hot an just handed then over, I burnt my fingers and she didn't even seem bothered or apologise.
Slow service
Food was nice, shame they put the service charge on the bill as I wasn't happy to pay that due to service

Booking easy. Service brilliant, food delightful. I was especially happy because I am intolerant of cucumber, every dish came up ‘allergy’, no mistakes here. Everything about our evening was lovely

Lunch time was busy and noisy with children, you host found us a table away from most of the children. One of the wooden dining chairs was damaged and unsafe, this was reported and the server said that it would be dealt with.

Friendly and helpful service. Wasn’t too busy. Service a little slow initially but food came quickly once ordered. All well cooked and as ordered, even with some alternatives requested. Good place for a family meal.

The food although well presented, was quite dry and bland. The burger was dry, the chicken Caesar salad was rubbery with nearly zero dressing. Overall the mains were all disappointing Gough the deserts were all great.

Great choice of menu (I’m veggie) and comfortable seating areas. You can book to sit outside but I chose inside. My second visit and would highly recommend if you want a full blown meal, a lunch or just a snack and a drink. Staff very friendly and accommodating.

Our table of 5 were happy with the food and service.
The menu is a bit strange but we all found something which we enjoyed.
We felt the wine was expensive at over £7 for a medium glass of Sauvignon Blanc so we opted for cocktails for a change.
Overall a pleasant visit.

Very poor table service.
We were hassled for glasses constantly.
Also we were located right under a speaker which made chatting with the others on the table very difficult.

The food was very good, but overall I felt it was overpriced due to the poor service and poor atmosphere.

Such a same, we were really looking forward to going.

Booked a table for four which included my 3 year old granddaughter they seated us on chairs not a booth. She was unable to manage her food at this height, but she is too old for a high chair. I asked if we could be moved but was told they had no other tables. She hardly ate anything and we left after 15 minutes. Very disappointed. I had eggs Benedict which was cold
