Great food, service very slow

Came out for dinner for 2 people. Really good food options, even for vegetarian. Staff are very friendly but service was very slow. After we finished our meal, we were given dessert menus. We waited 20 mins to try order our dessert but no one came over so my partner had to go up to call the... read more

I LOVE this place, amazing cocktails, they'll even make things for you that aren't on the menu, they are trained well and give good service, bar snacks come out fast and happy hour that goes on forever AND on fridays and saturdays - what more could you possibly want!

Fantastic food and fantastic service. What can I say, I've had afternoon tea I've had the steak I loved them both and the red wine selection is some of the best I've ever had. The surroundings are superb as are the clientèle. A fantastic establishment and always a must visit when in Birmingham.

The first trip in the day time was awesome, we spent several hours been severed by Tom and he was friendly and made superb cocktails and we enjoyed our afternoon.

I had the chicken for mains which was gorgeous and my boyfriend had the cod which he said was perfect. 2 for 1... More

Cocktails on a Saturday night are two 4 one so naturally I made the most of it!! Peach and strawberry Bellini's are gorgeous and two for only £8!! 4 of us had dinner: three courses with half a bottle of wine each was around £14. Very good food, excellent service and cool surroundings. Highly recommend!

I have read other reviews on here stating that the afternoon tea was not good but I have to totally disagree. Our whole experience was wonderful and the food looked & tasted amazing. Our services was warm & welcoming and... More

Visited the restaurant Friday 27 Feb at around 8pm. On arrival we ordered two cocktails in order to take advantage of the 2-4-1 deal, and were asked if we would like water for the table (we did). After a short wait, we ordered, I went for the fillet steak with sautéed rosemary potatoes and rosemary and red wine jus, we... More
