Very nice food, kids loved their chicken strip and we loved our ribs, also the "happy birthday" song from all the staff for our daughter was a nice touch. Thank you to all the staff, we will be back

I was really excited to try Happy as the menu looked amazing.
Our starters and puddings met my expectations but the mains I thoughyt where a let down. We where a party of 4 and all of us left our mains.
I was annoyed to then receive the bill for there to be a service charge. I believe this houkd be optional.
I would not rush to return.

We were squashed on a very small table as there was 5 of us. Asked to move but told no because they were fully booked but the larger table behind us only had 3 people! Not very friendly and won’t be going back.

The food was amazing, and it was one of the best dinners! The value was great and the service was phenomenal too. We liked it so much, we came back after a short walk for drinks. This is where the night, sadly, took a turn as we ordered 3 cocktails and one mock tail for my younger sister. When the bill came and my mom paid, I then had a deeper look to realise that they had charged us the exact same price for the mocktail as they did for a cocktail. And there’s no alcohol in a mocktail! It was just ice and juice - for £9! We then asked to speak to the manager who gave a sorry attempt of an apology and didn’t offer to compensate us for this. He basically said “there’s nothing I can do because you’ve paid the bill so sorry” and tried to justify the price by the fact that they “did not have an option on the toll for the different price”. Honestly ridiculous. Really upsetting that such a good night was ruined by this.

Food was nice, but I asked for no onions in my quesadilla and that wasn’t possible. The waiter was quite rude about it and was just looking at me saying “I can’t do that”, and was generally unhelpful. Suggests to me the food wasn’t being freshly made, but the food that did arrive was good when I ordered an alternative.

I was celebrating my anniversary there, but I wouldn’t really recommend for that kind of occasion. They served the food extremely quickly and it was more fast food rather than a dining experience. We probably only spent just over an hour there.

The waiters were a bit hard to communicate with but otherwise relatively friendly. There was a lot of staff around though which my partner and I thought was odd. Probably more staff than diners! Seemed a bit chaotic.
