    Shiitake mushrooms and Caesar salad were devoid of flavour. Batter was thick and undercooked, salad dressing was watery and bland.

    Food was great and the wine was lovely, only the cream in my coffee smelled and tasted off so couldn’t finish it unfortunately. But will definitely go back here as loved everything else

    Food and place beautiful couldn’t be faulted however something needs done with the service One waiter was so loud his conversation was all anyone could hear! It was very inappropriate to discuss that he was ready for a joint and offered to hold the barman’s genitalia- so unprofessional Table beside us left - dirty for an hour while they walked about doing nothing Only for the food and the place it would be a one star but the chefs deserve the higher stars!

    Poor selection, couldn't get vegetables with my main. Choice of sides so limited, either thick chips, thin chips or a bowl of rocket... For £4!! Steak was fatty. Disappointing all round and expensive for what we got.

    The food was amazing but the drinks services was extremely slow which is why we didn’t end up staying on after dinner. At least 15 mins for a glass of wine and a pint. Deffo need more bar staff serving drinks but other than this the food was amazing and the staff are friendly!

    Went for dinner last night and ordered our drinks and they took an age to get. Cocktail was nothing special for £10 and my Guinness was £6 and had to be sent back as was so bitter. Food was tasty but dear for what we got. Waitress was lovely. Disappointed overall for the price paid and wouldn’t go back

Moved to smaller table under a noisy speaker. 35 mins until be got our drinks . Server had no idea of menu , specials etc. Paid bill not even offered the receipt. BUT the food was excellent
