We ate here on a rare night out with friends that had been raving about it. Firstly I will point out the positives. The restaurant is fabulous and modern looking. Service staff are attentive and helpful. That's about it with the positives. Our friends pointed out the menu had changed and dishes they'd been telling about we're no longer on... More

The southern fried chicken burger was probably one of the best burgers we have eaten in a restaurant. Chicken was tender and all accompaniments very tasty. Service was excellent also. Would definitely be back again!

I dined here with a group of friends recently. I had salmon which was nice but the plate was empty looking!...I looked around the table to see had i missed the vegetables...but no...the rest of the group were looking for them too We were not even offered a bowl of chips.... Very poor for the price we paid

Had dinner with my family there very disappointing. The food was taste less . For what we paid I would expect much better food . We were over charged on drinks . Won't be going back to eat again.

Starters were served on slates (potato skins) and mains on wooden boards (burgers). I dislike both types of 'plates' for food and wish restaurants would revert to... More

Dined here last week. Very comfortable restaurant, relaxed atmosphere. Food was delicious. Menu not that extensive, but there was plenty to chose from at the same time. Desserts were outstanding. Staff very helpful and efficient. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal here.

Was in on a Thursday evening and couldn't get over how busy it was, I have to say that even though you could see that the staff were kept on their toes, you couldn't fault them, from a prompt greeting and seating with a warm welcome to the friendly face of the waitress they really made us feel at ease,...
