Went for food but it was more of a bar. Very loud. Maybe ideal for casual drinks but date night a no. Table we were sat at was next to the stairs so not ideal for the occasion. Ended up leaving after 1 drink.

The waitress with the dark hair wearing a blazer was lovely! It’s a shame the rest of the staff weren’t the same. Considering how quiet it was it took a while to get the bill- drinks- food etc. The staff stood around gossiping and we could hear the chatting.
Drinks order came wrong and the food wasn’t the best.
Probably wouldn’t go back.

Took a while for our drinks to come and they came after our food, waitress was really nice though and apologetic. It was way too loud though I could barely hear the waitress and had to get her to repeat herself multiple times it would be good if the staff could keep people from being so loud

We were sat behind a pillar which was difficult for the waiters to see us. Sometimes it was too loud to hear you speak too. The best dish was the ghost wings and the ribs were bland.

The food was gorgeous!! I had the seared steak fries and i 100% recommend!! My partner had the butter chicken strips and he said they were gorgeous too. Not too pricey and very filling! I was extremely happy with the service and food :)

The only thing that let the night down was the out side seating area. It was like a wind tunnel with no shelter. The food and waitresses were fabulous.

Food was fantastic and great prices too. Music far too noisy and were sat with people screaming so couldn't hear each other speak and couldn't hear the waiter when speaking to us. Would be good if drinks only groups could be sat separate as the noise level was ridiculous especially with the music on full blast. People dancing on tables and chairs and no security told them to get down. If I pay £8 for a cocktail ideally I would like it in a glass and not a plastic cup.

The food was good but the service was lacking from having to ask for drinks order four times to having to ask for the bill several times we felt very much ignored as other diners were not

Sat down and drinks were taken but had to wait ages till we got asked about what we wanted the other people next to us go there after we did and got there meal taken down and severed before us and it was the same meal. A couple infront of us had asked for the bill but waited 45 mins to get it and so did we there was no organisation and staff were counting the tables and bringing us the wrong food and two members of staff gave us someone elses bill before we had ordered food. I know because of covid that we had to have plastic cup but there were other people with pint glasses and the cups were not a pint at all. The staff just seem abit inexperienced getting orders wrong and the food took along time to come
