From the greeting on the phone for a booking to the greeting in person, the parking advice ☺️ and the food itself this was a lovely find of a restaurant. Super service, friendly and chatty host - not forced conversation followed up with gorgeous food - shoulder of beef (melt in the mouth), pork belly and sea bass - 3 meals which each drove up the standard for the competing plates. The only downside to the experience was the heat in the restaurant is quite intense so some air con would be welcome, but this is one kitchen where you should stick it out even if you struggle to stand the heat!

The food was delicious but the restraunt was far to warm we had to open the door even though we were sitting by the window. There was three large groups in the restraunt and as the restraunt is very small it was very noisey to the point where we had to shout our order to be heard by the waiter. Whilst I understand the staff can't ask people to be quite, they could lower the music. The restraunt was so uncomfortable we couldn't wait to leave and therefore didn't even stay for dessert.

We were in on a busy Saturday night, the service was brilliant from our server Maire and the food was amazing. Will definitely be back.

Great value for pre theatre menu, with lots to choose from. BYOB but also sells wine. Busy on a wed eve, good sign. Friendly staff, attentive and efficient. I ordered goats cheese spring rolls which were really tasty! Big portions too. Friend ordered Thai curry which was really delicious, although rice was bland. Husband ordered steak which he said was melt in mouth and best he's had in a while

Downsides - they had heating on and everyone was about to pass out, windows steamed up. They said they turned heat off for us but it was still pretty unpleasant. I ordered pork belly with champ; pork was tasty but overcooked and chewy in bits. Rest of meal was lovely. Husbands chips and onion rings were pale in colour but he still enjoyed them, I would want cooked longer.

I would like to go back though as I think it has more to offer.
