    Meal was great all round. I ordered quiche which came out quite overdone. Pastry hard and filling overcooked. Shame as everything else was great

    Waiter tried to memorise our order, came back Twice to ask and check , still got it wrong and I ended up eating a different dish to what I wanted as did it want to wait another 20 mins as my family would have finished theirs. Added service charge to bill and an extra dish.

    The atmosphere was amazing. The jazz was fabulous and made the evening. We ordered our food and within less than five minutes it was delivered to our table. I would assume it was microwaved. It tasted okay but was nothing special. We ordered tart Tarim for pudding And it looked like microwaved slop on a plate. Albeit it tasted okay presentation was not good. Thank Melvin for the jazz it was wonderful.

    We went for the prix fixe lunch. The starter, a salad, was good. The main course was good but it would have been really good if the accompanying vegetables were not mainly potato. Overall good food at a fair price.

    The service wasn't great, quite slow and no one came back to check if anyone wanted anymore drinks at any point. In fact we had to go up to someone to request one. Asked for bread and olives for the table, literally got enough for 1 piece of bread each. Food was fine, but portions for the main was quite small. The 8oz steak and chips looked a bit lost on the plate with a bit of garnish. Not sure I'd go back again.

    Two of the dishes I liked were off because they'd run out of eggs. On a normal week day with supermarkets selling eggs all around us? Can't believe they didn't just buy a box for a couple of pounds. When I asked for a beer, I was offered a premium brand I didn't want twice and declined twice, but they brought it anyway. Cynical upselling? Food was good though.

    Amazing food and amazing service, we were all super impressed, especially considering the very reasonable prices. I forget our waiter’s name but he was from Hungary, was super friendly and gave us excellent service throughout. Booked last minute just because it had a table free and ended up having one of the the most surprisingly excellent meals we’ve ever had in England. Seriously, we were laughing throughout the meal at how ridiculously good it was for the price, almost Twilight Zone value. Thoroughly recommend!

    The restaurant was extremely noisy. My boyfriend and I couldn't hear each other. We had to shout for a while and then gave up. The calamari was slightly overcooked which meant it was chewy and a struggle to eat. The only good thing was the staff and the great customer service we received from our server.
