Always pleasant experience

We visited for lunch recently and had a throughly enjoyable meal. The menu is not overly complicated, but the offerings are all tasty and well presented. The atmosphere, being very much in the 'loft industrisl' style is quirky but pleasant and it's nice to watch the chefs at work. I always feel... read more

We had booked for 6pm because the place was full later on, I thought it would be quiet until later on. Wrong !! Even at 6 when we arrived on a Saturday evening the atmosphere was superb, a really great place to be. The building itself is spectacular with huge floor to ceiling windows in the upstairs dining room and... More

Another good visit, nice to see they keep making the effort to get it right. Could be a little more choice on the afternoon menu maybe, and portions aren't the biggest in the world, but niggles aside, one of the best quality places around.

Great food, service, bar, cocktails. Very good at catering for a gluten free diet with bread available too. The mussels are fantastic!

A great bar. Plenty of bitters and very good bar food. Service has slowed a little from when it first opened but still well worth a visit.

About 20 in the group, both family and friends. A very nice restaurant in what was an old ballroom, open plan (including the kitchen) with high ceilings. Plenty of atmosphere. A warm welcome was waiting, with excellent attentive service throughout the meal from efficient staff. Nothing was too much trouble, including the management of the (brought) birthday cake. The pre-ordered... More

Popped in here on Sunday morning, full English with toast and free tea and coffee all for £9 Good atmosphere and pleasant but not intrusive staff, will go back Only down side was the plates weren't that hot so the food cooled a little bit quickly, but was a very nice way to spend a Sunday morning
