Service is slow to nonexistent. Tried to order more drinks but was ignored, you’d think after months of lockdown they’d be happy to make more money from selling drinks.

I would be grateful if you could supply your booking details and the time you visited, this is certainly not the level of service we are known for and would like to follow your booking up.

Good food, drinks and service, however it was very cold sat outside, we left earlier than we would have liked to, because of this. Would definitely visit again, in the better weather.

Hi John, Thank you for your feedback. We have covered the outside area to try our best to keep guests as warm and dry as we can during these times until indoor dining becomes fully available again.

We do apologise that you felt rushed at the end of your visit, sadly at the moment we have a tight turnaround of tables with a maximum 2 hour limit during busy periods.

Food was excellent as always. Some items on the menu not available due to impending lockdown measures being forced onto the hospitality industry, which was fully understood. Service second to none. Just a pity these closures are being forced on restaurants without any justifications.

Chicken and waffles: batter burnt and waffles were sweet Belgian waffles from a bag.

Halloumi burger: two halloumi fries in a bun with salad and sweet chilli.

Neither of the above were particularly good nor were they worth the ~£10 price
