The restaurant from the onset looks very sleek and stylish, but the Food is very basic for the heavy price tag and the service is slow and clumsy, and after hearing about the ZERO hygiene rating! I would be giving this place a wide birth form now on!!!

We dined here last night (Saturday) with the in-laws and had a fantastic meal/evening. Arrived to find the restaurant extra busy, probably down to pay day weekend, and we're advised the wait would be about an hour for a table. We always know there will be a wait on a Saturday evening, so we have a few drinks in the... More

We came here for my uncles birthday and asked if they could seat twelve of us, they told us it would be an hours wait at the most. It was only after two hours that they actually seated us in the restaurant. To make matters worse, while we were still waiting they brought out the cake and hand it to... More

A restaurant that is trading on its past. Bland food and shambolic customer service are the order of the day, unless you are a friend of the staff. Watching other groups arriving and being sat.... And in some cases leaving before we eventually got a table is symptomatic of a management group who run the restaurant for their own entertainment.... More

As we were a large party, we had called to book, and was asked to be there for 7pm. ! hr 40 mins later we finally sat down. There was no real apology no offer of a drink, nibbles etc. Very poor customer service. There were also several other people that had been waiting well over an hour. So if... More
