10 of us went here for a night out. It's always hard to organise these nights, as people differ and it's hard to satisfy everyone. However, all 10 were very happy with the quality and quantity of the food! The brie starter is huge. (in...More

So sorry your experience wasn't up to scratch, I see from your myriad of reviews that you get around quite abit, I wonder could you be mistaking us with another establishment ?

We visited on a Monday night so it was quiet. I ordered fish & chips that were served quickly and piping hot which I like. The fish was soft inside the batter and the chips (fries) were crisp. Staff were quick and attentive.

Eat here regularly and the food is always good, staff friendly and helpful. Know that I will always find something on the menu that appeals, even if I have no idea what I want. Good atmosphere overall.

Very poor experience. Poached eggs were cooked through and when we complained instead of taking our plates back they just served us 2 eggs in a bowl which were also not poached properly. It's a shame because it's a nice place.

I really liked it here~ loved the style of the place. Really friendly bar staff. We just came in for drinks and stayed for quite a while. Quirky touches and hidden corners. Only downer was someone took my umbrella.
