I had high hopes of this place after visiting quickly one lunch and it looking busy and inviting. So booked a table with friends for a Friday night. Very disappointing! The place was empty. Absolutely nil atmosphere. We were the only people eating at any table. Food was reasonable but they had no chicken for several of the dishes on... More

Have been in on other occasions and it's difficult to eat there... More

It must be the worst restaurant I have ever been to. (the drop forge in Hockley).The fish I order was over microwave and then into the fryer it was like a house brick the crushed peas & Mint was so dry they had been over microwave as well.

What a lovely stop off; resting our feet... enjoying a break. What a nice location, including a roof area; beautiful and airy, sitting in the shaded area at the bench tables. We so enjoyed the light lunch of flat-breads and a generous portion of french-fries. Good value for money and really tasty.

Have visited several times with visiting colleagues and always had pleasant food and service. Menu offers a good range of meat and vegetarian dishes that are reasonably priced - grilled chicken accompanying a mound of gnocchi was moist and especially tasty. Will be returning.

Decent food, strange beers, nice premises but one of many Jewellery Quarter locations. There are much better places although I understand Sunday lunch at this location is excellent.

The bar is a must visit place for 'non-locals'. It offers something a little different and is in a very unique setting. Prices for beverages are a tadd on the high side. This place is good for a quiet drink on 'date-night' or as part of a bar crawl with friends.

Well worth a visit, good value and friendly staff. The food was quick to arrive and was as good to taste as it looked. Prices were very reasonable
