Absolutely disgusting and shocking service, my party had a booking at 8.30, ordered food and drinks no problem..asked to pay the bill 30 mins before we were due to leave and told..no more drinks even though there were people who were there before us still...More

Thank you for the great review... we do love the lasagne ourselves!
You described us to a tee, Im sure we will see you again soon :)
Went here for a work do. Found it really difficult to get a table and it was fairly expensive for what you got.
I appreciate its a late bar so you pay a little more but the surroundings and ambience dont merit it.
