We were here for a girls night out. We all ordered something different, fish cakes , meat platter, pork belly and nacho's. All were delicious. Staff were very helpful and friendly. It's a lovely spot. Will definitely be returning.

Nice bar but thought food was overpriced. Staff were nice but thought menu was very limited. Got the sliders but thought they were very bland. OK for snacks but don't go if you're hungry
