We went for breakfast and it was a s good as it gets. I was looking forward to eggs benedict and was presented with 4 options. I tried the standard and the egges were perfect. I also ordered Earl Grey tea which came in a pot...made with loose tea! Fantastic attention to detail. Waitress was bubbly and awesome, we will... More

Just ordered the £7 spritz, and perhaps as its on the specials they think they can save money on ingredients. A full glass that tastes like soda water alone, no taste of aperol or prosecco. Queried the bar man who said he used 50ml aperol and 150ml prosecco. Well he is either lying or they then used 700ml of soda... More

We went on Valentines Day for lunch, were offered their 'great value' special lunch at £29.95 per head, ordered off the a la carte, sharing plate between 4 and separate main courses. The menu is interesting and varied, I could have chosen several different things. Sharing plate was good too. But from starter through to main course it seemed as... More

This is a lovely Restaurant, the service from the waiting staff was excellent. The food was okay nothing to really shout about. The condition of the restaurant is nice and relaxing and no pressure to leave once you had finished.

Nice food but the service wasn't brilliant. I also thought the food and drinks were overpriced for the service and quality. It was nice to try but I won't be in a hurry to go back.

We booked a table for afternoon tea for three for my niece's birthday, and despite a nearly empty upstairs were kept waiting for nearly half an hour and then had to wait again to order. The waiter was excellent, and I felt a bit sorry for them as they seemed to be running around. Needs more staff! Food was good... More

I came for lunch with my friend and was very happy with all aspects of the experience. The lunch time menu with 2 courses for £10.95 was great value for money and had great choices for both me and my friend. Our waitress, Viktorija, provided great service, was very friendly and chatty and contributed well to our overall great experience.... More

Absolutely gutted. Came here with 6 friends Saturday evening. Arrived, promptly seated upstairs in a cold drafty room. No music playing, giving it a "Weather-spoons" feel too it. Waiter was rude from start to end of the meal which was not very pleasant. Drinks arrived quickly which was nice, although the waiter had written down my drink order twice so... More

I had lunch from the set lunch menu today, it was delicious and the service from our waitress Viktorija was simply excellent. She was attentive and personal but not overbearingly so. Excellent all around.
