Very slow service despite the place being only 10% full. Food was badly cooked and we waited too long for it to arrive. Waitresses seemed to find nothing wrong in that. Never again

Waitresses lovely , maitradee not good , quite indifferent when we were smoked and heated out of where we were sitting as he added more wood to an already hot fire. It was burning our faces ! He reluctantly moved us . Disappointing

Nice casual get-together with girlfriends. Food is nice here - what it says on the tin.
Only downside to the evening was receiving a cocktail in a used glass (lipstick marks) but the waiter dealt with professionally.
Will be back!

Very friendly service, food fresh and tasty, bar empty, probably due to cost of drinks, was quite chilly and not very busy, we only had the burgers, as it was so quiet, I was being cautious, probably unnecessarily.

I booked for a friends birthday lunch. The restaurant was very noisy as it was Good Friday with lots of families.
We chose from the vegan menu which has a good selection.
Our cocktails were delicious and very strong!
I would go again but perhaps in the evening.

I booked a table through Opentable a week ago for Mothering Sunday and in the morning of Mothers Day my booking was cancelled by the restaurant without any explanation.

The arkley is my local and I can walk there. We tried it when it first opened and for years later and were usually very dissappointed at the quality of food. However, over the last few months the food has vastly improved, tasting home made and delicious. Let's hope it continues!
