Read mixed reviews of this place on trip advisor but decided it was worth a crack. The food was run of the mill, tasty enough caribbean style stuff chicken wings a highlight but nothing memorable. Service really poor. On arrival told we had 5 mins order happy hour cocktails so chose them, the waitress didnt reappear for 10 minutes and... More

Service was fairly decent, music helps the average atmosphere, expensive... delicious mutton curry however it was impossible to eat as there were bone fragments in every single mouthful. 'i'll tell the chef' they said... 'Cheers' I said. What good is that?

Cottons is a bit like a tardis - it looks small from the street but inside it extends backwards and downwards and seats a large number. Service is friendly and doing its best, but there were insufficient staff for the number of tables on the night we went. Food is decent, well priced but not world beating. Good cocktails if... More

When I arrived at the restaurant there was nobody to greet me so I just stood at the door for a few minutes waiting. Eventually a member of staff came over and I told him the name under which the table was booked. He beckoned for me to follow him and then suddenly stopped along the way to serve some... More

What this venue lacks in size, it makes up for in its atmosphere and delicious food. Attended last night for a pre hen do meal. Ordered the calamari to start and Sea Bass from the mains - everything was cooked to perfection (could not fault it). Drinks are reasonably priced (£5.00 and up for cocktails) and staff were attentive and... More

Staff were very welcoming and helpful and we started with some cocktails were well made and delicious. The food was quite spicy with a lot of depth of flavour, warm enough for spice fiends but not too bad for those with a gentle pallet. The meat was very tender and and well cooked. Overall a great meal out and will... More

We came here to meet a friend who lives in London. I am glad she recommend this place, we had a delicious meal and some drinks. The place was so busy that our server never really checked on us which kind of sucked. We ran out of water a few times and had to grab another waiter to fill our... More

Only visited for drinks - I wish I'd stayed for food (will definitely be returning). Amazing range and selection of great rums (over 300 I was told) and really enthusiastic and friendly bar and waiting staff - made me feel right at home on my first visit. I tucked into a couple of mojitos as the happy hour cocktails were... More

Okay, so this recommendation is purely based on the rum selection and the service of the top man Marvin. I like going to places that have a large selection of a particular drink because it gives me the opportunity to try something new. However, where do you start when presented with so many bottles of rum. Well, you started by... More
