Visited here for a afternoon tea and have to say terrible! Never again, the picture you see on there website and Facebook page is not quite what you get, after arriving at the restaurant we went to reception to be greeted by a very stern woman who to be honest didn't even smile, we were taken to our table where...

My boyfriend and I visited this restaurant on Friday evening around 7.30pm. 2 for 1 cocktails were advertised until 8pm, although we overheard one of the waitresses telling another couple that this actually ran until 10pm. I chose Opal Fruit and Skittle cocktails which were well presented and tasted good. We had to wait a while for a table but... More

Visted today for a friends birthday. Bar staff excellent & catered for all our needs however management are a total disgrace I suggest they go to university to learn skills in how to treat customers. I was spoken to & treated in a disgusting manner by a manager with a beard & bun in his hair, when they had misplaced... More

However the cocktail which came as part of the deal was another matter I ordered a Mojito. I can honestly say its the worst i have ever had. What i actually... More

Really nice place. Went here on a Friday night the other week and loved the atmosphere. Had a man playing the trumpet which was cute. Really good music and great cocktails. My friend and I were lucky enough to get there at 9:50 so enjoyed the 2-for-1 cocktail offer which finishes at 10. My friend ordered 2 double Smirn Off... More

We went on a cold Tuesday evening. We were warmly welcomed and guided to our table even tho we were almost an hour early. The menu is quite comprehensive and for starters we shared a platters board. It was well presented and well tasting. We ordered steaks for mains, different ones, and both were done exactly as ordered. One rare... More

My partner and I came here on a Wednesday night using a living social deal that I purchased in October. It was quiet but there was still a nice atmosphere. We were originally told that we could only have champagne cocktails using the voucher but the waitress then said we could choose any cocktail, we could also choose anything from... More

The place was modern large and inviting. A young lady from Brazil who was working behind the bar suggested we tried a Cocktail. And who were we... More
