Atmosphere was not great, the music was soo loud you couldn’t even speak. I got a gin cocktail which was the size of a shot which cost £10.50 and it looked like sewage water. It tasted horrendous… we just wanted to get out of there...as soon as we could. Staff were friendly though.More

Visited late afternoon on Sunday for a late lunch with friends and OMG it was seriously good! Lovely warm welcome on arrival, lovely atmosphere and it felt like the exact place you wanted to be on a miserable drizzly Sunday afternoon. I must mention our...waiter who was absolutely excellent, he felt very genuine and did such a good job so massive 11/10 for service. Drinks were lovely, good selection of wines etc. 2 of us opted for the beef and the other 2 the porchetta. I have to say I can't think of anywhere I have been in this country in years that has served roast beef that perfect, pink and so tender, it was delicious. We all enjoyed every bit of our meals and would absolutely go out of our way to return for another Sunday roast!More

An absoultey lovely evening, I booked this for my girlfriends birthday and we had such a lovely time. All the staff were friendly and really attentive and knowledgable on all the menus including drink and food. The entertainment added to the atmophere too. The gin...making experiance was really interesting, I've never been so attentive in a lesson in my life. Jackson was friendly and made the evening lots of fun, he gave us some really interesting facts. The whole story of how the company came to be was really lovely to hear. We would love to come back again for another go! (Maybe a bottle for me instead so we dont have to share or argue ;)More

We had a friends Christmas get together. The Sunday Roast with great entertainment. £15 per head. The singer/guitarist really added to the atmosphere. We had a lovely seated booth. The staff and service was one of the best I’ve encountered. So attentive, patient and accommodating...making our experience overall fabulous. The food honestly was not up to parr with other Sunday lunches I’ve had at other venues and the extras are £5 & £6.50 for fairly small portions to share. Desserts are extra small at £7.50. The wine list is very reasonably priced £26 for a decent Malbec. And cocktails priced from £9.50 to £11. We were entertained, pampered and enjoyed a great 8 hours in a wonderful venue, great setting and can’t thank the staff enough. You truly exceeded in accommodating all our needs.More

We had a superb afternoon at The Gin School followed by Three Little Words. Great atmosphere and lovely friendly staff. Small plate food was perfect as were the gins. Gin school before was fantastic...James had us entertained throughout....we didn't stop laughing, but still learned everything...we needed to to make our own gin! The afternoon was just brilliant from start to finish....well done and thank you to you all.More

Hello, I don't think so, perhaps a call to the restaurant would clarify your question. Sorry, I can't help.
