Myself and a friend went on Thursday the 20th of April 2017 to watch the Manchester united v Anderlect football match. The pub was pretty empty. A nice waitress came and took our order of food and a pint each. A minute later the main bar man came over asking for ID stating that it was over 21's on a... More

Sunday afternoon probably not the best time to try out a new place for food. Haven't been here before but heard raving reviews from friends who've been eating here for years. To start it was very busy but a lovely waiter spotted us and found us a table. We were served quickly and he was very attentive but the food... More

Visit to the family's 'local'. Had the half-sized Sunday roast - the beef was amazing and great value for money. Had the cocktails... again great value for money. Would highly recommend this place for both drinks and a bite to eat.

Unfortunately i have been dragged here on several occasions while i have had family visiting from the uk. They love it. For me it's overpriced and overrated and a victim of its own success at busy times. I find the door staff arrogant and i have been turned away from here for no real reason on several occasions. Perhaps i... More

Was there for an evening with a few friends. We ordered food and one waitress in particular pretty much threw my friend's food on the table in front of her so that the plate then slipped off the table. No apology whatsoever and no offer to replace the food. She just went off and we had to ask another waitress... More

I found the menu restrained most of the food seemed deep fried and the taste carried over from one item to another although the price was middling I will not go back until the menu has improved

During the week the atmosphere is so relaxed and chilled & weekends are perfect for celebrating any occasion or just a night out with friends. Cocktails are so tasty & drinks menu is so extensive and reasonably priced. Bar staff... More

When you have security at the front door early in the evening it should tell you about the place already, my girlfriend and I had been out walking and decided to go for some food maybe a drink so we approach the place to be stopped by security at the door and to be told that we don't allow you...

I dropped in today Christmas eve with my 10 year old son and some friends around 4.30 for some food. We were waiting for a member of our party to arrive and it was very busy so it was nearly 5 by the time we ordered. The waitress came to our table and told me that she wasn't taking my... More
