“Rude staff”
Reviewed 20 March 2014

This restaurant is quite nice excluding the one rude guy in the cashier. I asked for a glass of water with him after I made a payment. What he said to me was "you should order a glass of water when I asked you that do you want anything else, not the time after you made a payment". Is it really significantly different???? I just don't understand why he spoke to me like that. I was so upset and very disappointed in his manner. If you don't like your job, go find new one but please don't speak to your customer like this.

“Complete disregard for allergy's”
Reviewed 17 March 2014 via mobile

Took an hour for our food to arrive and when it did, my burger had Mayo on it which I'd specifically asked to be left off due to my egg allergy. When I sent it back the waitress came back and told me there was no Mayo it was moisture from the lettuce. I was very angry that this establishment felt scraping off the Mayo and then trying to fob me off with lies was ok. This is my life they were playing with. I will never eat or drink here again after this experience

“under-staffed”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

20mins from order to food being served, we overheard a fellow diner being told. Unfortunately it took nearly that time to queue at the bar to even place the food order! Only 2 barmen at peak eating/meeting time so not a good start.
Food itself surprisingly good after the wait.

“A nice modern bar”
Reviewed 24 December 2013

Plenty of students around as you would expect and all nationalities. Very bright, modern and attractive building. I was very silly and ordered the very large hot dog with chilli beef etc. maybe good for a student but not for a 60+ man! Good staff

“Student bar”
Reviewed 1 December 2013 via mobile

Everything you would expect from a bar on a university campus. Busy, noisy, friendly staff, slow service, poor to average food, not as cheap as you might expect. Ok with mates if you're hungry and not in a rush.
