    Lovely waitress, very good food and service. Manager brilliantly dealt with dietary requirements. We arrived early so quiet but started to get busier as we were leaving. Would highly recommend and will visit again.

    Excellent as usual and the waitress went above and beyond by nipping out to the shop to get some gluten free buns for my celiac daughter’s burger. Thank you so much.

    Absolutely no ambience - only table occupied the entire 2 hours. Service was very slow and not particularly friendly. Waiter kept disappearing so couldn’t contact her. Menu sheets very amateurish, just printed on ordinary foolscap and stapled.

    Hi Miss Garlic, So sorry you were not happy with your visit, did you raise any of these points at all with your server?? Also it was explained that we have full huge brand new menu out at the end of this month and you were offered to read the new menu as well, I do apologies for our foolscap paper but again as explained we are about to launch our brand new summer menu and these things do take time and a lot of effort, thank you for baring with us and again please except my apologies and we look forward to welcoming you back soon.
