I really find this place so reliable for a lovely evening with either a partner or friends. The drinks choices are copious and the bar staff are knowledgable in all bar ones!

Came here several times for lunch as the prices are relatively low but the food was nothing special and nothing to remember. The drinks were a good size though which I enjoyed.

We held an engagement party here for friends, in total we had approx 25 adults. The buffet food was actually quite nice and very plentiful. We did notice however that there were dishes missing that we were supposed to have. Good service and easy for people to get to.

I've visited this restaurant before and was rather unimpressed then. This time I came with low expectations. In the restaurants defence it was a Friday night so I knew it would be busy. We were seated very quickly, but we waited about 20 minutes for drinks to be ordered, maybe another 10 or so for them to arrive (that I... More

My wife and I called on spec for brunch and sat at one of the few tables outside as the sun was shining. The riverside location is very pleasant but it looked a little dark inside the main restaurant. The menu had some interesting and unusual dishes and the drinks and coffee selection was very good. We had to wait... More

The selection of drinks are great, went here for my birthday meal and once again for a catch up and both times was great. Their selection foods and desserts are heavenly given that they are namely a bar aimed at after work drinks and socials. The selection of small plates are my favourite thus so far and the pistachio cake... More

I meet up with friends once a month for lunch. We always say we're going to choose somewhere else for a change but end up there because the service is great, the food delicious and great value for money. If you have a problem with anything the waiters/waitresses are always accommodating and always friendly and smile (which is rare these... More

Excellent food and refreshing soft drinks. Good choice of menu. Opted for several small plates for £25. Fresh and tasty. Waitress was really good polite chatty and no faults and it was her first shift. It wasn't very busy especially with slug and lettuce doing 50% off . But I clearly chose the better option and got just as good... More

I have been invited to a leaving do and I was a bit skeptical about eating here as I had only had drinks. I have to say I was nicely surprised about all choices available and some of the dishes were even vegan. Wow! I ordered the Korean rice it was lovely nice and tasty. I will definitely go back...

This place is prbably good for some drinks with a few people-the atmosphere is buzzy and the bar staff are fast and friendly. However if you are hoping to have some food as well I'd say it's not that worth it. I had the pulled pork burger and I wasnt particularly impressed. Bland, standard food that isnt even all that...
