    Great overall experience. We were greeted warmly by Isaac andJack and received wonderful service from Kenzy. The food was really good (thank you Steve the Chef) and reasonably priced with a good selection of cocktails, also reasonably priced. As it was a warm evening, we were able to sit outside on the deck. It was a really chilled atmosphere, helped by the relaxed but professional service provided by all the team. We will definitely be back! Karen & Tony

    So I'd heard good things about this place, especially in terms of their vegan offerings, and had really been looking forward to going. My partner and I decided to go for our first year anniversary meal. I thought it was meant to be a bit more upmarket, but two of I think 6 of their vegan tapas were loaded fries, and buffalo cauliflower wings - the sort of thing you can get in any half decent gastro pub. Then one of their other vegan tapas they'd run out of so that was a bit of a shame and limiting in terms of what I could eat. This resulted in my partner having a fish tapas so we couldn't share everything (as he's a meat eater). The food that we ordered was all okay, but nothing to shout about. Also the cocktails were pretty good, but they didn't specify vegan only dairy free, so one I ordered had a sweet as a garnish floating in my cocktail that I couldn't eat as it wasn't vegan (glad I checked). The staff were lovely enough, and the service was quick so we had no complaints there. One thing that wasn't ideal was the size of the table, I guess bigger is better when it comes to serving tapas, but I felt very far away from my partner who was sat across from me, especially as the restaurant was full and quite noisy, it wasn't the best place for an intimate meal if that's what you're looking for. This place is quite far out of town for us, so because of that and not having the best experience overall, I fear we probably won't be back.

    The servers are all brilliant and friendly. Cocktails are delicious and the food is incredible (small dishes that you can mix and match). Drinks-wise I would highly recommend the Piña Colada and Bubblegum Blue. As for food the new beetroot dish (pretty sure it was arancini) and the beef brisket were to die for!
