The restaurant was far too noisy. I asked for music to be turned down but did not happen. Would have preferred the front dining room but not given an option.

Lets not get carried away, its just food! Meals were O K but expensive. The only annoying thing was someone conducting what we took to be staff reviews on the next table. Next time do it somewhere else- we don't want to eat in your office.

Food was nice and we had a table outside. Serve was ok, could have been a bit quicker. Nice location but a bit expensive for what it was.

Excellent meal, great service and competitively priced. Good wine too. Starters of Arancini and beef croquettes followed by posh fish and chips, selection of fish/shellfish and happy to accommodate batter free option. Highly recommend this restaurant.

A great experience, managed to get into the smaller, private, dining area with only three tables. The main dining area has a very busy bar so we appreciated being tucked away. The one downside was a delay in service, which to be fair they apologised for before it became a problem.
The food was great, prices good, and will certainly return

Pleasant venue and good service. There is a lunch meal deal but this is overridden by the specials board and that was not explained. One of us found the sea trout dish too greasy but overall we enjoyed the lunch.

Always enjoyed the food and the service here. But this time well below the standard I expect. Food was cold,meat was chewey and very fatty for allegedly quality lamb. My neighbor and I go there regularly but not again. Sorry but not acceptable.

Very disappointing food quality. Steak was full of gristle. Chips were over cooked to a crisp. Dessert was overwhelmed with cream. Always found food great here in past.
