    Food and drink was excellent, the staff were excellent especially when we requested to move to a different table only because we had a group next to us who were a bit lively but eventually settled down after we had moved but overall it was a good night.

    Lovely food, staff were warm and friendly, decor was inviting. We were sat next to 2 other live tables and next to the door (it was a little cold there), would have been better to have been placed at a more private table (as it gets busier that obviously changes but separation when space available should always be first choice). The mini plates and sides were better than the mains we got but the food was really good, but still argue overly priced for quality and portion size.

    We asked to mov3 from our designated table as we were very close to a large party and could hear ourselves speak. New table was a high top with I don't normally like but the seats were very comfortable. Waiter was great remembered everything ordered without writing down. Food was very good. Onion rings a little on the greasy side but overall very happy with what we had. Great size portions. We had chicken wings macaroni and chicken burgers sides of dirty fries and Onion rings. Will definitely return. Great music and good atmosphere.

    Had amazing food here. Went for a Sunday brunch/lunch. Every dish was perfect and the staff and atmosphere were brilliant. Try the chicken and waffles, you won’t regret it. Buffalo wings were also spot on. The guys serving us were really friendly and chatty. Can’t wait to return and try more on the menu, it all looked great.
