Group of four of us went out for an evening meal here. One was a wheelchair user, so we booked in advance. They had reserved a table for us near the entrance, which was helpful, but no attempt had been made to allow an easy passage from it past the other diners to the disabled accessible toilet. Service was helpful... More

Came here for lunch - two adults and two children. We were quickly seated, and our order was also taken quite quickly. Our drinks arrived straight away, but it was at least 40 minutes before our lunches arrived, by which time the children were hungry and bored. They were also disappointed not to be offered ketchup with their sausage and... More

Ate here last week for my brother's birthday. Upon arrival we thought the place looked really nice, clean, nicely decorated and a pleasant atmosphere. We were shown to our table quite quickly by a friendly young woman. It took quite a while for anyone to take our drinks order and the young man who did so was not particularly friendly... More

Absolute rubbish service. Sat down, took 20 minutes for someone to take our drinks order and another 15 minutes to bring them. Food was fine, apart from a long hair in my garlic bread, but waited a long time to be served, brought by aloof, indifferent staff. My daughter asked for a glass of water which never arrived. Will not... More

Four of us visited about 6.45pm on a Saturday night. We hadn't booked but we're told a table would available by 7.30 so we decided to wait in the adjoining bar. Long story short, we were seated about 8.15 and when meals still not arrived by 9pm complained and were given a free round Of drinks. The food was well... More

5 of us went here after the cinema to celebrate my Mother's 70th birthday. We were too early for the restaurant so we had a drink in the bar next door , served by Charlie. The food was good and it turned out to be half price selected food on a Monday. Johnathan was looking after our table and he... More

Took young friends and family with pretty low expectations, but was pleasantly surprised. The food was heading towards Pizza Express quality (may be being a little generous there, but certainly above most chains!). The cocktails were better than average. The wine was plonk. The service slow and disorganised. BUT it was very good value for money. 5 cocktails, 1 glass... More

Lovely, lively ambience and cheerful, helpful staff. Great choice on the menu but as we were on a budget we booked for half past six and decided to have the half price seafood linguine and my husband had a half price pepperoni pizza. Both were delicious. We also benefitted from the happy hour in the Sphere bar next door, two... More
