this was my first time in bar and grill, absaloutly loved the terrace area. The cocktails where great and made by some handsome chap.

We were asked if we wanted to sit outside on a January evening, with heaters of course, but we declined. Indoors was fine. It was quite busy with a nice buzz about the place. I couldn't hear what our server was saying though due to the music. We both had scallops to start, they were delicious. Plenty of them too.... More

We had a family adult meal here for 6 of us. We'd booked to sit on the heated balcony & it would have been lovely, but the heaters kept your upper body warm, but your legs were freezing. We moved inside, within the minimal of fuss. A good meal, the scallops were very nice & we had the chateaubriand which... More

Sitting outside, drinking on a balcony in January was a bit unexpected, but good fun. Really efficient patio heating made it possible. Service was a little slow to start with, but enjoyed this place. Really decent tunes too.
