A party of five of us went to this restaurant without first booking. We were pleasantly surprised. The food was very good and good value for the money and the staff were very pleasant and helpful.

Visited on a Wednesday evening party of 8 (20th Aug) Only one waitress on that evening and she worked hard but was overwhelmed with orders. Also unprofessional in the way we were spoken to while orders were taken. Drinks and food were good but we waited for ever for them to arrive. We had one child with us who ordered... More

Ordered Salmon and mediterainen veg - took ages, and when it came it was covered in oil and garlic butter - so much that it put me off my food. The drinks order was wrong - staff running around but getting no-where - and the service was very poor.

Visited this place a few times now and the food is always excellent. Decided to try the tapas this time and I have to say all 9 dishes that we chose were fantastic. The service could be improved somewhat, but can't knock the food.

Visiting my native North East, I asked my parents to select somewhere local and near the train station, so I could meet them for dinner and a catch up. At first I thought good choice. However the experience was just "alright" The menu choice and the food is nothing to write home about. Very average and not much flair. The... More

Were staying in the area for one night, so decided upon this place, and despite some people's reviews on here, we had a fantastic time. It was quite busy when we arrived, but had no problem getting a table for 4. Ellie, our waitress was brilliant. She had a cracking sense of humour, and was so accommodating for my mum's... More

The management of this company are just absolutely disgraceful, very very terrible attitudes and responses to customers. Such poor food and service for how expensive things are.. Dirty environment, hair in food, with very little decent service. Utterly appalled.

Been in here a few times now, quite nice seating area outside and cosy inside. I always like the beer in here. Give it a go.

We were celebrating my sister's birthday with friends and family and booked a table for 16 people on a Tuesday evening. The night was a bit of a disaster from start to finish. The group was split between 3 tables. When we complained, we were told that the restaurant are unable to cater for parties this size and this should... More
