An easy local with reasonable menu choice. The place is nice to walk into - surprisingly high ceilings and pretty good decor. The food not amazing - I'm a vegetarian and have to say it wasn't great. Fairly bland without much love put into presentation. The young waiting staff were nice and friendly but didn't seem to know much about the menu itself. I'd say go for lunch / bar / coffee with low expectations - we went for dinner and I don't think I'd do it again.

Small plates were very tasty and decent value on the 3 for £15, with some supplements . Turkish flat breads disappointing as actually only thin wraps. All brought out at same time so a number very cold by the time we were eating. Would be better to bring out a few at a time. Very friendly and efficient service otherwise and a nice atmosphere.

We had the Meze for lunch. Some of the portions were small, in particular the sea bass. Beers were overpriced as well. Only went there, as the OP was closed.

Unfortunately whilst the food was nice the diner next to us was extremely drunk. His conversation was so loud we couldn’t hear each other talk. He was shouting but the waiter ignored it all. He could tell we weren’t happy and that the diner(who was only having coffee) was inappropriate. He ignored it all as he didn’t know what to do. To be honest it was an absolute waste of £70 and spoiled our evening.

Exceptional service from the young lady looking after us on the Saturday before Christmas 2021 which was really quiet due to the spread of the virus. Not been before but will definitely return. Good food and lovely surroundings. Staff could not have been more pleasant or helpful, great advert for eating local.

Overall we had a lovely afternoon/early evening, the staff were all lovely and very efficient. Unfortunately I would say the food was average, fine enough but not wonderful.

Food very tasty - big portions and great value for money with 3 plates for £15.
It was quite cold in the restaurant - not sure if the heating was working.
When we were given a table there was only one other table occupied and we were sat at the next table! Seemed a bit odd in these times that we weren’t seated further away.
