“PRETTY GOOD FOOD, POOR SERVICE...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

As I sometimes work in the neighborhood, me and a couple of colleagues had lunch here the first day they were open. Interesting.... Food was quite alright, portions a little bit on the small side but very tasty. We weren't too fussed about the fact that it took some time to get a table or that the service was a bit all over the place. It was their first day they were open, right?

They have now been open for a while and I've been back twice for dinner, both times with the same experience... Confusion about where to sit, non attentive waiters/waitresses (had to be reminded to fill up water bottles, get more cutlery etc) and food coming out of the kitchen in the wrong order.
Two of us ordered three starters instead of a starter and a main course. The third one ordered the regular set-up with a starter and a main. We told the waitress we wanted the first starters together and then our other two starers with the third persons main dish. Imagine our surprise when we had a starter each coming in together with the third persons main course and no sign of her starter.
The bar is great with nice friendly beer-loving staff that are really helpful.
The Grill (which you can enter through the restaurant or directly from the street) is also really nice with good value for money and great for a small lunch.
The restaurant, I'm afraid, has had three opportunities to deliver and haven't impressed so I'm done with that...

“Good sausages, excellent beer menue but lousy service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

Let's start with the positive things. These guys serves some delicious home made sausages and the the beer menu is quite impressive. Now to the downside. Maybe we were unlucky and maybe it was a bad choice to to there a Friday night just after pay day. First we had to wait almost half an hour in the bar to get our pre-booked table. Then after ordering we (7p) had to wait for 1.5 hours to get our food. Waitress very friendly but that doesn't help very much. Some friends have been here before and had much better experience but when you have to wait for so long time it shows that something in the management of the restaurant is wrong. If this restaurant was place somewhere more central I might have given it an other chance but since it's a bit of a detour for me to get there I won't consider it worthwhile to give it another try. It's a pity.
