Drinks VERY expensive. Wouldn't have minded if the barman wasn't so incredibly rude and miserable. However, the waitress was lovely, very polite and couldn't have done more. All in all an average Tuesday night.

Good stuff, nice menu and people. Great promotion on Monday evenings - £5 for a main meal - fantastic value given the quality and location.

The waitress was horrible. The staff`s night would have been improved if they had no customers. The lady that served us seemed annoyed and impatient, slamming things on the table. She seemed to be a senior member of staff but showed no concern whatsever about...More
