Went for simple mashed avocado toast and poached egg breakfast. Avocado had been watered down with tomatoes, the poached eggs were very watery and the rocket salad was overly dressed in oil. The whole meal was very wet. Left very unsatisfied. Something so simple to get right! Will not be dining there again.

Sorry to say I wish I had not booked this restaurant. It was not what I expected. The reception on arrival was poor, the attendant didn't listen to a word we said and offered us a breakfast menu when we were there for lunch. We thought the menu choices were poor; when I looked online before I booked I was sure it was a more expansive menu. At all times during our meal we had to signal for service and to pay our bill. Although there seemed to be a lot of servers around we appeared to be invisible to them. The whole place needs to sharpen right up. We did not enjoy our meal. So usual and annoying to have to give such a poor review; we would rather not!

Chicken focussed restaurant with surprisingly good vegetarians options. 3 of our party are veggies and all had a great meal. Slow service which needed chasing several times but it's a good choice in the nice environs of Kingly Court. Bar and area downstairs is also good for a quick lunch

Been coming here for years and always great place to just grab a bite and catch up with friends. Very chilled and easy going without worrying about having to rush. It has very good food and does the trick for a quick fix of either a drink or filling that hunger gap. In the summer the courtyard is great if you can nab a table.

I have enjoyed a few meals here but unfortunately we had under cooked chicken on this occasion. Whilst it was kind of them to give us 15% discount and free coffee, we were still charges for 2 undercooked chicken kebabs!!

We also really enjoyed the green cola they serve now.

Food was fine but very poor in terms of catering for people who are lactose and gluten intolerant . Food came with dressing on it despite being told twice that a member of our party couldn’t eat it for medical reasons. We’re quite rude about it when asked to change the food to what we had ordered. Then refused to take the service tip off at the end. Was quite disappointed as it made the more ‘dietary challenged ’ member of our party feel very awkward.

Food was good and arrived promptly however it was a busy Saturday night and we had to stop a waiter to ask for a pudding menu and the bill as we were on a tight schedule to get to the theatre.

Everything was nice enough, but just wasn't that interesting enough for me to go back. The chicken wings were tasty (if a little sweet) but the skin was flabby - I prefer my wings cooked more. Service was energetic and the atmosphere was lively. Good for groups of friends.
