Been here many times and everytime it is great. Never fails to exceed the expectations of those I'm with. This visit was with work and being Xmas we preordered.
As the food arrived we were all greeted by name and the staff made a point of ensuring we were totally satisfied.
Being Xmas their was two sittings, but our party was given a reserved area for more drinks.
Excellent, highly recommended!
PS try their cocktails good quality at a realistic price

This is my second time here, once was for evening dinner and more recently for lunch - both times were lovely, the food is reasonably priced and very tasty. The staff are very helpful and have genuine smiles, which is rare! It's nice to have something other than curry, thai etc.

If you are going in the evening I would recommend booking - I would also say, the lighter bites food portion size was a little on the small side - I know that sounds odd, but the normal sized portions are just right!

I'm looking forward to a return visit!

Hello BrittlePeanut,

Thanks for talking the time to write this review.
Your kind words about the staff will be passed onto them.

The Small Plates are often purchased in groups, tapas style or as a partner with the Large Plates, might be an idea for next time as we hope to see you again soon!

Thanks,
Vicky

If you can get in here (notoriously hard to get a walk in table) you will not be disappointed by the food and drink. Some nice beers that are unavailable from most places.
