Not to be overlooked

There seems to be no shortage of competition for those seeking a bite to eat in East Hill and nearby. This venue is perhaps easily overlooked because the view from the street may look like nothing more than an empty bar area. In fact it is little more than a few seats in what is really an entrance... read more

Cannot fault the food or the service as both were amazing on our visit. Waitress were knowledge about both the food and wine menu. We're attentive and friendly. Would highly recommend the fish platter and pork belly mains. Will definitely be going back again soon.

Came here for a pre theatre dinner and was thoroughly impressed. The waitresses were lovely, building full of character and the food was very good. I had the salmon and prawn skewers and everything was cooked beautifully. Price is very reasonable and the menu is good with lots of variety.

Came in for a quiet drink - seemed a good place for that. Might have considered eating here but not impressed with the staff. How loudly can you discuss the forthcoming 'inundation' of guests and shift rotas, etc, etc? Get some professionalism!

Everything here is Good - service, food, prices....if I could, I'd give it 4.5 stars - it's not 5 stars, but it IS GOOD. It was a pleasant experience, and the Ribs starter was lovely. I can't put my finger on what would make this a 5 star review....but I would definately come here again, you feel like you're in... More

Good crab cakes, good rib eye steak, excellent barbecued chicken brochette. The waiting and kitchen staff allowed me to combine two thirds of one dessert, with one third of a different one, without any extra charge or fuss (I loved that little bit of flexibility). The 'one third' dessert was one scoop of bay leaf ice cream. Really interesting and... More

My friend had steak while I had venison. We also enjoyed a lovely bottle of Rioja. The atmosphere was very... More
