We were 15 minutes late although it was quiet as it was post lunch, there was no issue though. Food was very nice. We had the pulled pork wrap, a ceasar salad and some sweet potato fries. All very tasty. Service was quick and we were left alone to enjoy it. Overall no complaints for a nice Friday lunch.

Had to ask for tap water twice but never arrived. Croissants came with cream and berry coulis?? Not nice. The eggs benedict however was delicious and very quick service.

Unfortunately I have nothing good to say! Food was desperate! Especially the ham and turkey dinner, ham hard clearly reheated! Sprouts were hard!! Chicken wings under cooked and cold. Staff cleaning around us, told coffee machine was switched off! Ordered dessert and as one girl took the order another put our bill on table at the same time!!! I will not be recommending or going back…..

Food and staff were amazing. Only slight issue was the the noise of the music. We were there for late lunch/ early dinner at 4.30 and the music was a bit noisy. Other than that, absolutely perfect
