    The food and drinks are always good but the service is lacking. Staff always seem to be stood around talking to each other on the first floor. The staff member who took our order didn’t write it down and forgot about my side so we had to tell another member of staff about it and they weren’t at all apologetic or polite about it. I used to really enjoy coming here but recently the service has been pretty poor, overall the food is reasonably priced and good.

    Food was great and we didn't have to wait too long for it considering it was pretty busy. Portion sizes were huge as always but not at the cost of quality, everything was still super tasty and fresh. The only thing I'd say is that we were up in corner at the back of the mezzanine and it felt like we were forgotten about after our plates had been cleared. We had ordered two more drinks which didn't arrive, one being one of the signature cocktails which I'd wanted to try, and so ended up just asking for the bill. Still great and will of course be back again.

    Great food and service. It felt a little rushed. Was my birthday and after an hour we were gently reminded we had 20mins left so ended up going elsewhere for coffee and dessert. But it was Saturday and early lunch so understandable.

    Food is excellent, very large portions so beware! Very noisy, not helped by a very obnoxious table behind us, but overall noise level was very loud. Although service was excellent and quick, it did feel like we were being rushed along. When confirming the booking it was made clear we would have the table for 1 hour 30 mins. The restaurant called to tell us the table was ready early so part of the party headed there which unplanned and not convenient for the whole table, and it seems the clock started early on our hour and a half, with us getting encouraged to leave our table earlier than expected. I would return, but only if a quick bite was what I was looking for, not a leisurely catch up with friends.

    Food was lovely. Out for friends birthday for dinner & drinks. Ordered dessert, staff coming over to table we need table in 20 minutes, you can go to bar. Felt rushed hadn’t even ate dessert. Then during eating it staff came over with the bill asking if card or cash felt rushed. Not enjoyable considering we waited half the time on the food!

    Great service. Very much enjoyed being served quickly without having to wait for too long. Bill was promptly brought over without having to flag down a member of staff like other places and was served, ate and paid within 45 minutes. The food let it down though but I think that was just me ordering something I didn’t like. Great service from the staff.

    Pre Valentines dinner. Seated at our table with no hesitation despite us being 10 minutes early. Staff very pleasant and attentive, reading that we needed more drinks without us calling them over is a big plus in my eyes. Food was warm, tasty and clean (have had fried chicken elsewhere that was floating in oil on the plate 🤢 ), great portion size too. All in all a wonderful visit.
