Description: The restaurant is split into three main floors. The first floor, which is also the main seating floor, contains the bar area, and a spacious attached outdoor terrace for alfresco dining. The first floor is capable of holding up to 60 seated guests, and we can accommodate party sizes of any number.The second floor contains the open-plan kitchen and another seating area, which is able to hold up to 50 seated guests. This floor is smaller than the first floor, but is still capable of holding large parties with ease, and again, we can accommodate parties of any size and number.If you require more privacy, we have yet another floor for seating, the third floor, which is a private dining room which can hold up to 45 seated guests. As this room features skylights, it is brighter and warmer than the first and second floors, and is spacious enough to be used for any kind of event, such as dining, presentations and so on.

Went fairly early, 7ish, on a Friday night and the place was already really busy with a mix all ages. Kicked off with an Espresso Martini and wondered why I'd not tried one before...could have drunk it all night! Provencal mussels, Goat’s Cheese Wontons, Lamb skewer and Tiger Prawns along with a couple of tomato breads went down a storm... More

Used to eat here regularly years ago but it seemed to have lost a lot of its charm and quality. The food was fine but nothing outstanding and the pLace was full of very loud lurid party goers. it may have just been bad luck that we were in on a bad night but it's not the sort of environment...

Not the easiest place to find, or the nicest location, but this was a real find. Excellent food, reasonably priced and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. We were there the evening of the Italy vs England game and were invited back for the game. There are obviously a lot of regulars and a good night was had by... More

We visited prior to a show at Theatre Royal with a living social voucher. The place is a little gem. Staff super friendly and good quality food. The only slight comment I would make was my main of seafood linguini was quite oily and prawns overcooked. This would not stop me from returning though prior to our next visit to... More

I have visited this restaurant several times now both night and day. The service provided and been very efficient and consistent in both busy and quite periods. The food is of an excellent standard and dare I say, the best seafood pizza in town! You are greeted and treat like an old family friend and made to feel valued and... More

This restaurant never fails to make me impressed, I use this restaurant very often but this visit was definitely the best so far! I visited this restaurant on the Saturday evening when England and Italy played against each other in the World Cup and it was such an experience. The turn out was amazing, every table in sight was full... More

Visited with my partner on a Living Social voucher after reading the reviews on TA and being generally impressed with the comments. We were certainly not disappointed, the restaurant was busy mid afternoon on a Saturday (always promising), the restaurant had a nice atmosphere and the service was good. The food was lovely, my mussels were plump and juicy and... More

Visited on Monday 23rd June 2014 Saw reviews on TripAdvisor so decided to give it a shot - definitely worth a visit! Excellent service and value for money - huge portions! Lovely atmosphere and just a generally enjoyable meal. There is a good choice of food and drink.
