Food was rubbish and quite frankly an embarrassment. Overpriced and masquerading as some sort of gastro pub experience. My burger and chips was about GBP18 and tasted like the sort of frozen rubbish I ate at uni due to a lack of money. Needless to...More

Booked a table for four of us for lunch on a Thursday. When we got there (12.30) the place was deserted. Doors were locked- not a soul around. Had to go and find somewhere else to eat. Not impressed.More
