The Sunday roast was delicious and the apple crumble was the best I’d had in a restaurant. Will go again xx

Best Sunday vegetarian roast I’ve had out! Staff were lovely helpful and friendly
The only negative I would have is it would be nice to have an adults only area As we were surrounded by them don’t get me wrong I like kids but I’m not a fan of them running about banging on the glass floor whilst others are dining . I know this isn’t the pubs fault but maybe a slight rethink of allocation areas?

Great DJs, lovely food, friendly staff. Great ambience. The only slight complaint is the lighting outside was too bright - like being in a very brightly lit room! Lower lighting would have really improved the chilled vibe outside.

Having been there for food on a Friday evening a few weeks ago and enjoyed it, we where keen to repeat the experience.
However, on this occasion there was a life DJ in the outside area and the music was at such a load level that it was uncomfortable and impossible to hold a conversation.
The food was excellent, as was the craft beer, but once we had finished eating we left.
This was a shame as the ambiance was completely spoiled, and we would have stayed for longer if it hadn’t been for the excessively loud music.
I should point out that this was at 6:30pm when one might expect to have a quiet relaxing drink and possibly something to eat after work or at the beginning of a night out, not later in the evening when you might expect things to be more lively.

The food was amazing , we go there every friday now as our place of choice .
My husband has the chicken rice bowl and i have the chicken wrap.only this time they had run out of chicken so i tried the vegetable wrap, it was even nice than the chicken one so i was really pleased.
Drinks service is speedy, bit pricey but you are in the heart of the city.
Salsa music outside gave it a really nice vibe

I have had great times at this pub but I felt the staff picked on a guy for no reason. He wasn't loud or a pain or anything. I really felt sorry for him. I hate bad behaviour in pubs but this was uncalled for by staff. Also at full time we were kicked out 20mins before the place could have shut. It would have been nice just to finish our drinks and go. I hope this isn't how the place is these days as it was a brilliant pub pre-covid.

Hi and thanks for being one of the chilled out groups who came in to watch the football - we really appreciated the crowd we had in on the night. Regarding your observation - our managers have a duty to keep an eye on guests' alcohol consumption and behaviour and unfortunately an individual was encouraged to over-imbibe by their group and we had complaints regarding their subsequent behaviour. We gave them water and advised them to calm down and eventually gave them a warning.

Was there for Sunday roast, which was outstanding, well cooked with a variety of good veggies and an enormous Yorkshire pud. Only one desert on the menu, cheesecake, which was very nice but the portion was small and a served up a bit chef-y in what looked like old cold cream jars, a bit of a juxtaposition with the home cooked look of the roast meal.
Service was very friendly and attentive. Because of covid, payment was by card, with no way to leave a tip for some great service which was a shame.

Food was very tasty although a bit expensive for street food approach with cardboard boxes and wooden disposable cutlery.
The garden area is very well covered, not much air circulation and people able to smoke, music loud. If that's your thing that's fine.
We were able to sit out the front which suited us far better and the staff were great.

Went for a quiz, all the staff were super lovely and interesting. They helped us get a closer table for my boyfriend who wears a hearing aid, and were also so kind and accommodating when we made changes to the number of people in our table. Not to mention food was delicious (Caribbean) cocktails were really good (especially Guava Punch) and the quiz was great fun!!

We booked a table for 18.30 for dinner. When we were seated we were told that food stopped at 17.00. The manager (who was lovely) gave us some free drinks to compensate, but overall we were quite disappointed as if this was clear on the website we would’ve booked elsewhere. Unfortunately gone are the days where you can walk into a restaurant to eat without a booking so at 19.00 we were in a bit of a muddle to find somewhere for dinner. The pub was nice though and the drinks were good.

The rude, arrogant, obnoxious bouncers ruined the evening before we’d even entered the building. The music was too loud to be able to chat (at 5pm). The bar staff were friendly, attentive and helpful. But the atmosphere and volume was too much to bear.

Went for dinner with my partner and was really disappointed, food portions were small and were given food in polystyrene tray with wooden chip shop forks which was difficult to eat with. Was overpriced and would suit a festival rather than a dinner. Food was laid on a piece of paper which desentegrated into the food. The chips were nice but there weren’t many. Would come back for drinks possibly, but would not eat here again.
