Drinks , food and service were great. Only disappointing thing was the table time restricted to a maximum of 1.5 hours. Most places are 2. That’s the only negative I have though thought they were great.

Food was delicious, waiter was lovely although felt a bit rushed to leave. My only complaint is that we got there about 2:35 for a booking for 2:30 and had to wait outside in the scorching heat for another 7/8 minutes for our table to be cleared and set. I understand it was busy however I didn’t expect to be made to wait when I had booked in advance!

Honestly the best burger I have ever tasted. The only downside I was so stuffed after it but omg buttermilk chicken. I had the Mexicans and my husband had a the salt and chilli burger. The beer was lovely too can’t prounounce it but think it was from Prague. It’s our second visit and definetly would go back again

Food was tasty and varied menu - as a spice lover, it ticked the boxes!

Cocktail menu was cool, loads of choice.

Service was what let them experience down. Due to Corona it is table serve only which I appreciate. However, my friend and I ordered drinks on arrival and about 20 minutes later our food and our food came before our drinks. It was 28 degrees outside and our food was spicy so some water would have been ideal! They didn’t come till we were just about finished our meal.

We were then advised our table time was needing to be cut short by 35 mins due to an over booking so we would have to drink up and go.

Would go back for the food, just maybe West Regent Street this time.

Fantastic service - the best staff ever. Such an amazing vibe from them. Happy at work, nothing too much trouble. Pay rises due!

Food was really good, but we thought the menu could’ve offered more choice. Lovely place to have drinks, nibbles, meals and above all, the staff were superb.

Disappointed. The food was ok. My wife got tge gluten free burger and was extremely dry. Cant order starters, was told this is because we only havr an hour and 15 minutes at the table. Its too much food to eat at once would have prefered a break between courses. Service was ok but hard to get a hold of a waitrss. We needed to advise that we asked for salt n chili chips and didnt get them. The burgers look better than they taste.

Food was amazing, but we were given a table 20 minutes late and then felt rushed out the door in spite of this. I understand that there are turn over times due to COVID, but we still had most of our drinks left when asked if we wanted the bill and had literally just finished eating, although our servers were nice other than this.

I had booked for my friends birthday and had noted this on the booking. I had hoped something might have been mentioned however this was not the case. Slightly disappointed by this. Food was good. Milkshake and pudding was excellent. Felt that the servers were keen to get us in and out as quickly as possible even though we had 1 he 45 minutes.

I was hoping to use the full time to enjoy spending time chatting with my 2 friends.
