We have been for a meal here 5 times already and had been for a drink earlier on in the evening. We came back for a drink and the bouncer stopped us from drinking on their as he said we were drunk. I was annoyed as I had not drunk. The bouncer Lincoln was rude, arrogant and he upset my... More

As a "walk in" party of 4 on a cold Tuesday night in January, the place was busy even at 6 pm. On requesting a table,it was emphasised by the front of house staff that the table was required for a reservation at 7-45. This was restated 4 times to the point of rudeness. I simply said that if they... More

Visited on a busy friday night in December. Bar was busy with a mixed age range crowd. Got a table but it was really sticky with empty glasses so decided to stand up near the bar instead as no other spare tables. Ordered a Raspberry Mojito that tasted of aniseed / sambuca even though this wasn't a listed ingredient and... More

Last night visited with my partner to be moved from a bar table to be told that it was reserved. The host them brought a reserved sign over and told us to move, this was because the restaurant was over... More

Great decor and atmosphere and meet up for drinks, highly recommend, excellent service gets pretty busy at the weekend but during the week it is the perfect place for a drink.

Great decor and atmosphere when busy (usually) or quiet. Attentive friendly staff serving the best kebabs I have ever tasted - the banana desert one is awesome. Have been back repeatedly so it's about time I wrote something. I actually like the fact that the menu doesn't change to much.

the food was awful. There is nothing homely or comforting about the food from this menu. It was processed rubbish, served in a in chipped tin tray. This may be acceptable in Cheshire, but it certainly isn't in Staffordshire.
