You can access the bar via a glass lift which elevates up the front of the building giving great views across Brayford Pool. The bar itself was vibrant, very busy but with plenty of staff on.

We tried to book for 6.30; they couldn't take us until 7.00. We hung around, then when we got there there were only 2 people in the whole retaurant! There were some shrieking girls in the bar - most unpleasant. We ordered. The tap water was fine, as was the prosecco. The bread rolls were very heavy, warm on the... More

I am disappointed to see the contents of this review. We try very hard to accommodate guests request for a preferred time but we had 2 large tables in at the time of your preferred time. We stagger the bookings in order for a smooth service for all our guests. I'm always disappointed when a guest doesn't give us the... More

I'm sorry to hear about your experience in the restaurant. It is standard practise to wait around 20 minutes for mains if starts haven't been ordered and I'm glad the waiter has removed the sides as they arrived a couple of minutes late. Most restaurants will charge for bottles of water but not for jugs. If you'd like to discus... More
