Reviewed 17 June 2014

We called in, as we were in the area around lunchtime, and found a very warm welcome and efficient service, not too effusive as with some places, the full menu was on offer and were both delighted with our order - piping hot, good flavours, so no complaints - coffee afterwards was excellent and to our surprise the whole bill for two - main, dessert and coffee came to £23.80 - will certainly visit again.

It seems like unless you are local and 'Mates' with the people behind the bar, your money dose not buy you service. After 4 of 5 times here i have never been welcomed and its always seemed like my presence was an annoyance to the staff.
They are fairly out of date not accepting contactless payment and a minimum of £5 on card.

The Atmosphere has only ever been good when its full of people creating the atmosphere, i dont believe this is created by the management at all, it only have a buzz because its the only child friendly place to buzz.

Food and drink is actually quite good, fulfilling its bistro title, and it even has a few good ales on tap.

If you come here with a good group of people it can be nice but as 1 or 2 on your own you will end up buying things you don't want to make up a £5 charge and sitting in a moderately good place painted in sad and a little tatty hospital green, with a cluttered bar while the insular staff faf about taking there time.

Shame really, it could be something really good.
