Called in for a cheeky GnT after having a meal elsewhere. Very busy, very buzzing & trendy.
Nice decor etc. They serve in watering cans -£25 each or a big one for £100(!)
Would like to go again for longer next time.

Made our first visit to this location last Saturday as a group of four friends. Seated straight away and fell lucky will a really good table ( wished id asked for its number for when I go back ) Service was excellent throughout , drinks good and not too expensive, food overall really good except one minor issue with one of the main courses a lamb pie minus much in the way of lamb !! However I raised this with the very nice and efficient waitress who had served us, the manager was then straight over and quickly resolved the issue to our satisfaction, all in all a very positive experience and to top it all off excellent live music from a singer who got the balance just right for the venue.
Had it not been for the one dish issue would definitely have got 5 stars but that said will have no hesitation in returning.
