All meals ordered were very good and prices were reasonable. Service was very good in a COVID-19 environment. Bistro was not very busy when we were there but sure this will increase over time.

We booked online although when we arrived they did not have our booking. The food took over 45 minutes to be ready and was not hot. Service was poor and did not enjoy our experience.

Top level very attentive staff. All agreed at my table that the food quality and offering was fantastic. Well done Chef's and back of house team.
Draught beer and other drinks from the bar all poured with professional care and knowledge.
Not left waiting at the bar to pick up our drink order, staff kindly bought and excess order of drinks direct to our table.
Fish of the day. Ling with the correct amount of salad and chips. Enough to fill you up.

Service was great! Girls were very friendly and attentive !
First time we went there my husband and I both had the rump steak and it was amazing, cooked exactly how we like it medium rare. Went back onSat and was a little disappointed as steak was over cooked, but taste was good! Will try again and hopefully will be amazing again!

The staff were very welcoming but I wouldn't go back for dinner. As the name suggests it is very much a Bistro which would be suitable for lunch or a quick bite. I feel it suits the gym downstairs for clientele more so than dinner guest.
