just had lunch here with my family and was very annoyed and thought it was completely inappropriate that a member of staff informed my son that he shouldn't be wearing a football top in the bar. I was so angry as we weren't drinking alcohol and we were paying good money for average food. Plus it was not an offensive football top but premier league top!! Plus its the world cup are they not allowing anyone who wears a world cup shirt through the doors!! Or do they inform tourists when they eat and drink in their bar! I doubt it very much! Absolutely ridiculous! and made are whole experience very unpleasant! Would never step foot in the place again. get over yourselves!

Service was not great mainly because of the poor attitudes, eye rolling, snickering, and pure laziness of the employees. Not worth spending your money here.

The staff is extremely rude and could care less about customer service. It’s like they only hire people with an attitude problem. A female bartender with glasses had no reason to be so b*tchy towards us, but she was. It wasn’t even just her either, she was just the worst. It was everyone who worked there they all have this better than you attitude and can’t even pretend to be nice to customers, the people sitting at the table next to us were also unhappy with the attitude of the staff and got up and left. it was like being in primary school and getting bullied. We wish we spent our money elsewhere.

Just got back from having a drink at this place and had the worst experience. We walked in and had Starbucks cups we had been carrying around for a while with only a little coffee left in them in our hands. We sat down at the bar and the manager came over and told us we couldn't have them, but instead of giving us the option to go outside to finish the coffee, he reached over and took them away from us and then walked away and never came back. We had already ordered drinks so we stayed and just got the most negative treatment, looks, and service from every employee. Before we left we asked if we could have our coffee back and one of the female bartenders said "oh you mean the ones my managers had to take off of you?" It was like she was mad at us and trying to prove a point. We will never come back and honesty the experience ruined our entire day. We feel so disrespected and don't know why everyone treated us so badly just because we had coffee, we didn't know this was such a serious rule and would've easily finished our coffees outside if we knew it would anger the employees so much. A simple "could you please finish those coffees outside" would have sufficed.

Fell into this place after finding a lot of restaurants closed. Wasn't exactly what we were looking for but we must say it was a great evening. Food was very good. The veg tacos a real surprise in how well you could define the flavours. Mac an cheese balls were executed very well and the chips covered in a pepper sauce just yummy. Great choice of beers. The place wasn't full, but service was OK if a little missing at times. Good bar service even with all the cocktails being made.
