Despite having booked a table and arriving well on time (my wife and I were going to the theatre afterwards), we were left in the bar area for half an hour until a table became ready. We were shown to a table outside the main dining area, surrounded by young families so the atmosphere was a little less 'grown up'... More

Came here today with my sister and 18 month old niece. We were all made very welcome and given a choice of where to sit where there was room for the buggy. It was very quiet when we arrived, but even when it got busier the service didn't waiver at all. The food was lovely with a great range to... More

My first visit to a Jamie Oliver restaurant on Saturday, and a bit disappointed. I had a meatball pasta which was over-heavily tomato flavoured, and came with just four (small) meatballs - a bit stingey at over £11.50 dont you think Jamie ? My companions all had different dishes, most of which seemed somewhat on the small size. The wine... More

I am friends with a lot of Jamie's haters, but I don't get the animosity: it's a perfectly decent, if generic and unexciting, place to go. My rating is slightly lower than might otherwise be justified/justifiable because there are far more interesting places to visit for a similar standard of food, service, atmosphere, decor, etc.

Just got back from here and the food was lovely! We had the lamb lollipops and the crab spaghettini which was delicious and a huge portion of pasta! My son had the sliders which he ate all up along with the side shake a salad! Puddings equally amazing with the strawberries and frozen yogurt and the epic brownie! Lovely waitress... More

NO bunging goes on his restaurant!!! He portion controls everything . The Chicken is smaller then a childs portion. He is getting meaner and meaner with his portions. Come On Jamie ...doing some bunging in your own restaurants. Your mean! And your manger is not suitable to handle any situation , he was like a nervous robot.

Horrible service and food. Pasta arrabiata was overcooked and had a spongy texture and the arrabiata sauce was un-edible. We ordered some tuna croquettes for starters and they were the size of an olive. It was the third time we decided to go, even though our previous experiences were equally as horrible. I would definitely recommend not to waste that... More

I have to admit I love a bit of Jamie Oliver so eating here was definitely a treat in itself!!! But on this particular evening our experience was made absolutely outstanding and memorable... Our waiter Matt (number 29 on our receipt) made our evening magical... He definitely deserves a promotion and a payrise!!!

On a weekday night our group took about four hours to enjoy a four course meal, which spoiled our enjoyment and mood. Starters were good, but then we waited and waited. My steak lacked flavor as it was over well done and crunchy verses the medium rare I ordered. As it was 10 at night I simply ate it. Most... More

This is a lovely restaurant. On entering you walk past the open kitchens which is quite unusual. We were seated in a booth and it was great as there was air conditioning which was definitely needed for the Sunday (8th June). The staff were friendly and helpful with choosing dishes and the special board had a goo selection. I had... More
