Amazing steak!

Came with a bunch of friends for a bite to eat on a Saturday afternoon and we all ordered the flat iron steak and it was amazing, as were the chips and peppercorn sauce. Decent size portions as well perfect for a meal before a few drinks up the town.

I had the Chinese Chicken and the portion was huge. The sides on the plate were very tasty although the chicken itself was just a piece of chicken grilled or baked (not spectacular). The atmosphere was nice and décor was very cool but certainly need far more lighting - it was literally eating in the dark. The food was definitely... More

A tender and flavoursome roast lamb lunch served with all the trimmings. friendly and prompt service in clean and pleasant surroundings. A most enjoyable experience and plenty of choice on the menu to prompt a re visit. A very well kept pint of cider helped keep me in a sunny and pleasant mood. A most acceptable way to spend Sunday...

We booked a meal here and the food and service can't be knocked! We were put in a secluded area downstairs and really enjoyed ourselves! Would certainly recommend the satay burger and the mojito desert!

We had our lunch recently and l have to say the food was delicious, there not huge portions which suits me as I'm a diabetic so the amount for me at least is just right, but others diners who were with us said they could have been a little more generous. On the whole however its not a bad eatery... More

A group of 10 work colleagues ate here on a busy Friday night. We pre-ordered food although it still took some time to arrive especially the deserts which we waited 45mins for after finishing out main meals however this aside, none of the food could be faulted in the slightest, everyone's choices were highly rated and tasted delicious. This was... More

This independent bar's name tips its fedora to David Bowie in his 'fashionably wasted' guise of the mid 1970s. Inside, you'll find paintings of Bowie (some for sale) and an assortment of his album covers adorning the walls, with a few Roxy Music sleeves to keep him company. Relax, though - this is no rock star shrine, but a quirky... More
