I went with my daughter and her fiance. I was impressed with the choices. Vegetarian, vegan and for us meat eaters. Food was very good. Reasonably priced and would definitely go back again.

Typical chain restaurant food. Not spectacular but not awful. Just average. We had mac and cheese, buttermilk chicken and selection of three tapas (squid, green salad, teriyaki chicken). Good selection of drinks. Good atmosphere and deco. Wouldn't make a special effort to come here.More

Sadly, we don't run a happy hour. All our cocktails are priced so that it reflects the quality and amazing taste for our lovely customers.
