Amazing staff save the day!

This is a review of two halves. We happened to be sat right next to the kitchen and got a full view of every order that came in and every meal that went out. So the bad news first, there was a fair bit of "cold" food and a selection of "wrong" food going out but this led to the... read more

We visited here for dinner. We were told there would be a wait, which was fine. The service was good, staff friendly, food was average, nothing special, but both the food and drink was pricey for what you got as it was only average pub grub. We were not happy that 10% gratuity was automatically added to Bill, I think... More

We had a meal here on valentines day and it was lovely, the food was fresh and tasty and the staff were attentive and friendly. I also had two cocktails which were delicious! Would defiantly eat here again.

We went there for a family brunch because is a child friendly restaurant and there is enough space for the pushchairs.The waitress that took us to the table has asked us to put the pushchairs under the stairs which is fair enough, but the way she said it was like she was annoyed. The food is quite pricey for the... More

The capability of a group of waiters to make an order of three drinks at 3pm an excruciating and inexplicably frustrating experience was beyond comprehension. To start with there was hardly anyone in the restaurant, but it was a nice day so we decided to get a drink outside. Ten minutes later still no waiter, so we had to go... More

We ate here last Saturday having been in Bath doing a bit of shopping. We were warmly welcomed and seated pretty quickly. The staff are excellent and very friendly - even if they kept calling us "guys" which seems to be the industry standard for the chains nowadays! There were no draft beers at this pace - which is a...

It can be very expensive for what you get and you have to wait there for ages before getting a seat to sit down.. i was waiting for half an hour to sit down and then a further 20 minutes for my food. But the food was good
