Overpriced, poor quality food. Paid £60 for 2 course lunch with glass of wine for two. Thai fish cakes were bulked out with packet mash potato, very bland and accompanied by a shop bought chilli sauce. At £7.95 expected a lot lot better. The main of fresh crab, king prawn linguine was awful. Sent the first back as it was smothered in black pepper and couldn't taste anything else. The replacement consisted of soggy linguine, half a pound of chopped cherry tomatoes, no flavour at all. The crab and prawns were in there somewhere, but at £17.95 it was a very inferior dish at an extortionate price. On leaving we were presented with the bill for over £60, no apology or discount. We spent the remainder of the afternoon feeling quite poorly. Overall, the menu looks very appealing and promises a lot, but fails miserably on taste, quality and cost. A very disappointing experience.

We had been for lunch the night before and asked if they could accommadate a party this size and some had concerns that the room was dark, they were ever so patient with us and showed us where we would be seated. It was also very light.
Plenty busy as well as it appeared to be a popular place.
Food was good, especially if you like prawns which seemed to be part of most of the dishes. The prawn cocktail starter was the biggest I've ever seen and included salmon. Everyone was very happy with their food and we left a generous tip as a result of both the food, service and friendliness of the staff. Worked out with two courses each a round and a half of beers and tip at abou £25 a head.
The beer was very good as well with names like help the herbs and hobgoblin.
People might notice the leopard print , Dennis the menace or stiped lampshades or the zebra stipe chair! Oh yes and some leopard print wallpaper! Fun .
I mentioned the previous day's lunch which was very good as was the choice of also having teas as well as beers. We were able to sit outside for this as there were plenty of tables.
Will visit again if in the area.

Stopped by to have a drink and hopefully get a table as we didn't book! We were told if happy to chill in bar area then one would appear shortly and we happily did. Staff friendly, good was gorgeous and cooked to perfection. Thank you giving me a lovely birthday night out

The food was ok, very pricey £16-£17 for a main. Starters and deserts both £7. My partner had the stroganoff which she said was quite good. I had the crispy pork belly which tasted more like a tough tasting rubber wellie.
The Decor of the resteraunt is abit like kat slaters dress sense, Erratic and Abit of a mess.
The resteraunt is on the other side of a bar which looked like an 80's bar you would find at a seaside resort and the toilets were to match.
