We popped out for an early dinner but found we could still order from the lunch menu! Excellent service from the barman right through the waiting team. The waitress advised us that the meals that we had ordered were available on a deal on the lunch menu, silly not to! Excellent food, the sauce on my pasta was mouthwatering. Looking... More

Went for lunch on Friday and ate from the lunch menu. The food was only warm and not great. The waitress was lovely and she did her best but obviously the restaurant is under staffed. Won't be going back for a while now.

Came here today 4/7/2014. Ordered eggs benedict hollandaise sauce had separated too long under the heater in my opinion. Service was very poor. Waiting for drinks, replacement breakfast. Not a smile from any staff. Everything seemed to much even getting the bill. Won't be back.

There were over 50 of us in the mezzanine area with students ageing from 18 down to just 4 years of age. The staff serving us-... More

And cinnamon waffle! The staff were lovely and had us laughing and couldnt do more for us if they tried! my son was... More

We booked a table for 8pm tonight ( Friday)and the place was rammed. Our table was not ready so we grabbed a drink at the bar but waited no longer than 5 mins. Our waiter was... More
