We had a wonderful meal in a great little bookshop. As soon as you walk in you know it will be great, it's fully booked, very little chance of walking in and there being a space. Knowledgable waiting staff will tell you everything you need to know. £1 for your prawn crackers or vegetarian alternative with two very tasty dips.... More

I've wanted to go in here for a long time and it didn't disappoint. The food was great and fresh. Anything can be made as a veggie option and you can let them know how hot you want it. Service was great too and prices are very good, particularly as you bring your own wine. It did feel a little... More

My daughter arranged a meal here to celebrate her birthday and we certainly weren't disappointed, the service was friendly and efficient. Our meal was lovely and fresh tasting with the right amount of waiting time, we all enjoyed our meals and would defiantly return. Added bonus that you can take your own booze, and found it very reasonably priced

I visited the Thai restaurant with friends after it being recommended to us, the food was very nice and authentic. From the moment we arrived at the restaurant we felt rushed, we were asked what we wanted to order before I'd actually picked the menu up and were given our final bill before our deserts had arrived. The waiter then... More

Heard and read many good reviews out this restaurant and we certainly were no disappointed. Intimate setting, we were sat in the Crime Fiction section, on a table for 2. You can take your own alcohol and you are provided with cool packs if you require them. Waitress introduced herself and then explained the menu. Kate was a credit to... More

We have been wanting to try this restaurant for long time and last night we was not left disappointed. We were sat at a table for four in the Science section, and although some might find it claustrophobic we found it cosy, almost like we had our own booth. The two young waitress were very sweet and attentive to our... More

This is one of our favourite places to make a trip to and we now know how popular it has become as booking seems essential! The main dishes are often very good and June is always keen to make her dishes suit the customer. We look forward to her cooking, her greeting and the cosy atmosphere. Inevitably, we come away...

We were given the Crime section table and thought it a little claustrophobic but still quaint. We were served promptly and our orders taken straight away. It was nice to have a jug of water put on the table without having to ask. The menu is interesting, although very limited. We ordered a salad for starters & when it arrived... More
