“Oh dear!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Not sure where the 5 star review came from, but I've been here twice to eat and the food is mediocre and service average (the staff try their best but the kitchen clearly has no idea how to prepare a table order so it all comes out together....I had finished my main course before the last dish on our table came out!!) How this chain can put their name to this place is beyond me. The extensive cocktail menu book was presented to us, but only three were actually available (the names of which the waitress pulled out on a crumpled piece of paper from her pocket...what's the point in that?) To call this place a 'gastropub' is about as misleading as calling World War II a playground scuffle. On the plus side, the environment and decor is good, and the staff friendly and welcoming......sort your food and service out and and you may yet succeed.

“A great place - not just for Kitwe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

This place would be a popular place anywhere in the world - good food, great service, good choice and lively atmosphere. I wish we had a gastropub like this at home in Geneva.
