Lovely setting, lovely building with great potential, Unfortunately that's where it ends! Food was just about average, everything was out the freezer and a bit 'grey' looking with very little flavour. We had to ask for our table to be cleaned which the waiting staff...More

Sat at the table behind the bar and there was a strong smell of sewerage that came and went assume it's something to do with the glass washer behind the bar. The food was very mediocre and not very warm and the claimed 24oz king...More

You can set up a tab with your card when you arrive, we just take a swipe of it, no money is taken off. Then whenever you come up to the bar during your visit what you order is added to your tab and then you pay at the end.
