We had to wait about 20mins for a table so had a nice cocktail at the bar. The food was ok, service was good. I had a veggie burger with salad. The tip is included in the bill.

Not the best quality food. Not the best vegetarian range. A gratuity charge was on the receipt, craftily added in my opinion. Left them a generous tip not realising this charge was in place. I won't return...

Very disappointed, we went in for an evening meal and it was shocking to see my brisket burger and small chips barely covering the plate... You immediately don't feel you're getting best value when your plate is not full. It was the same for my wife and step daughter who both had a chicken burger with chips. With one small... More

Ordered via deliveroo. Price £44. What we received was absolutely ghastly. £15 for the smallest rib I've ever seen. Chips were cold and soggy, as was the squid. Deliveroo tried to contact you but you did not answer. Will be warning people not to order from you

My girls age 4 and 7 both love a trip here and choose it for their birthdays this year! The staff are always friendly and happy to accommodate my daughters' requests for a giraffe in each colour and the colouring sheets and crayons provide sufficient entertainment along with free balloons meaning iPads are never required! The food is eclectic so... More

Been coming here since almost day 1 and never had a bad word to say, but over the past couple months it's just going from bad to worse! Standards of service have gone steadily downhill and now the whole place is becoming very negative..... Staff look disgruntled, food is poor (heard from our last waitress that the chef had enough...

PROS- Seated quickly. Good choice of food Reasonable prices Menu lunch offers at reduced rate Good views Seats not too close together CONS- Ran out of special option Initially slow for drinks to arrive Rice Bowl choice was bit bland with very little meat content, despite paying for extra chicken. Watch out for the added gratuity- our visit didn't warrant... More
