    Lovely food! Only criticism is there wasn’t a drinks menu and the waitress didn’t know what non-alcoholic drinks they had so had to go and check. A drinks menu would be preferable to browse!

    Chicken wings are amazing! The flavours and the presentation are what makes them so good. Staff are always helpful and friendly and there’s always a nice atmosphere

    We had a lovely time, the sun was out and we were able to sit outside having drinks and decided to eat outside too. The service was very good, food lovely, however, a couple of our dishes were served with a lot of sauce which we had to leave as we hadn’t been given any spoons. Overall, a good lively place to have a drink with good friends and eat nice food.

    Hi. We were a party of 4. 3 of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals - Chateaubriand and beef. Unfortunately, the other meal - Lamb, was tough and was served in a bowl of oil. We were offered a “discount” of half the price. In addition the inexperienced staff spilt the Chateau on the table. Not very good at all for 1 of our party !!

    Pleasant staff, good menu choice. Found noise level ( from the bar) rather loud particularly as we were in the restaurant away from the bar area.
