The menu promised much but unfortunately they weren't able to deliver. After a long wait and much distant pinging (of microwaves?) some courses arrived overcooked and others were barely warm.
We wonder if the staff were over-stretched and maybe they should think about offering a smaller choice of dishes which they could cope with better.

Downstairs (so no views) this place makes the most of its slightly claustrophobic setting. We loved the atmosphere, which was partly due to the staff. Chris, front of house, waiter, manager (I found out his name so I could mention him in person) was excellent. Friendly, aware, but never in your face.
We thought the food was very good. We had starters and mains, plus wine for about £70. The menu is a little retro, (like the decor) but the food is not!

A lovely little place, with a relaxed atmosphere and a unique feel. Faultless service, with attentive and considerate waiting staff. Thrilled to have vegan meals offered to us, all of which were imaginatively prepared, beautifully presented and completely delicious. Everything was very reasonably priced, and the toilets were very impressive too! The host's excellent musical tastes were an added - and unexpected - bonus :)

Nice setting and was hoping for a lot more having read the reviews. The food is poorly cooked and shoddily presented. Absolutely wouldn't recommend this to anyone but especially if you are vegetarian or like vegetable dishes. A taste of the 70s.
