Three of us went for an early lunch, great food, great service. We were defeated by the huge portions. Will definitely be back!

Booked for 6 people, 3 of us ordered food whilst waiting on the others who would've been ordering food too, 2 of us ordered chicken wraps which were tastless, dry and the wraps were hard. Totally disappointed, wraps got sent back and we did not...pay for them. Price of alcohol was expensive too. We have been here several times precovid when it was great food and great value for money. Won't be rushing back. We left and went to Driftwood 5 mins along the road where alcohol prices were great, food much better & great atmosphere. No wonder Life is empty.More

Arrived and ordered drinks for our table of 4. The waitress was too busy flirting with a group of young boys. She took our order and then there order. Low and behold, they get their drinks and we are left waiting and waiting... Asked another...waitress and it turns out the girl had forgotten to place our order. Amateurs. We just left them to it and won't be back. Don't waste your life at LIFE.More

Me and my partner went there twice after lock down. Both times we didn't book the table. The staff were so nice both times and arranged the table for us no bother. Really cool vibe, good place for food and just for drinks. I am...a beer lover so I didn't try myslef but they have a lot of cocktails even some vegans options which I thought is cool ( all looked smashing). Highly recommend!More

This was birthday drinks night for my husband. My son had taken charge and booked our table for four. My attitude was that if we didn't feel safe we could easily leave. It was the opposite. Tables were well social distanced. You were greeted at...door and shown to your table. When my hubby was out for a smoke the security were refusing entry so numbers were being counted. It was a lovely relaxing evening. Plenty of space, hand sanitiser, excellent cocktails and attentive staffMore

We had the philly steak and their signature burger and signature fries- both were really tasty. Particularly the sauce - it was amazingly tasty. Loved the delicious Bloody Mary and their wide selection of craft beers. The service was excellent and Laura, our waitress, couldn’t...have been more attentive. Will most definitely return.More
