Very posh place where you can find quite good Italian / British dishes. Always clean, but when it is busy you have to wait really long to get your order. Waitresses are trying but either they are short of staff or they don't have good trained staff. Nice size of meals but the prices are definitely... read more

We visited on the hottest day in August and opted to have our refreshments indoors; glad we did as it was nice and cool. Good tea, cake and proper cappuccino. The place has a smart, lively and upmarket feel. Very enjoyable. (And the toilets were spacious and clean - always a bonus.)

Service tip was expected for a meal with no service. Food was soggy and tasteless. We had a lime chicken burger and there was no offer of sauces, the bread was soggy with water and the chicken was tasteless. The best thing was the sweet potato chips. Considering we were only 1 of 4 groups of people in the place... More

Been for lunch three times now and loved it. Went yesterday for dinner with friends and was really disappointed. The place was so loud you couldn't have a conversation, several people were really drunk and shouting across the restaurant by 8pm. The restaurant was full with people trying to eat but the bar area crammed with people starting their night... More

I stopped in here for breakfast on a Sunday morning. We had to find staff to get us seated and then it took a while for us to get served (around 15 mins). The presentation of the food was really nice and the restaurant was big and had a nice atmosphere. If the service was a little better I would... More

We visited during Sunday evening so the restaurant was very quiet. However we were left waiting for more than 20 minutes before our drinks order was taken and finally had to ask to be served. After the order was taken it took another 15 minutes for the drinks to arrive which given the restaurant was almost empty was somewhat frustrating.... More
