We booked a table here in advance, as we wanted to eat at 5pm after the shops closed on a Sunday. Whilst there was plenty of room to dine, the tables by the window always go first. You can request a window table in advance when you book if you want one. We dined from the Christmas Party menu, which... More

Let me start by saying, the last 9 times I have eaten here it has been amazing. We came here at 20:00 on Saturday 26th November 2016 for a surprise birthday meal for a friend with high expectations, which were shortly extinguished. We were showed confidently to our table and were kindly offered drinks by our waitress which took 20... More

Unfortunately our meal was a disaster from start to finish. We went with friends for a birthday meal, after arriving we waited approx 20 mins for drinks. We were told 2 items were off the menu so we changed our order. We waited approx 1 hour for our starters which were nice, no one then came to our table for... More

A terrible meal. We visited the restaurant on a Saturday night and they were out of a lot of the options. No gin, no steaks and not all of the vegetable side dishes available. I could excuse this as it was a busy night but the service was extremely slow & the burgers were appalling. We have eaten burgers there... More

This visit was not nearly as good as our previous one. We were greeted with a whole list of items on the menu that was off. We settled for steak - well done - that was not well done and we were glad to get out of the restaurant.

Food was good but much of the menu was unavailable so could not have our first choice. Our server was new and unfamiliar with the place and this impacted on the quality of the service which was poor.
