Very tasty mid week birthday lunch. Waitress attended to us as soon as we arrived, just unfortunately was not very clear in what drinks were available when they did not have our preferred choice. Food arrived and was very tasty and well presented. Would return.

A busy place so booking is essential. We visited on a Sunday night without booking (thinking it would be quiet) and we almost missed out. A very helpful chap behind the bar advised to order food quickly or we’d be waiting around all night. So we did and our burgers were simply gorgeous. Proper chips and very meaty homemade burgers....

Visited with friends over the bank holiday weekend. Had a fantastic meal and great beer. Some staff need a bit of training or just need to lose the attitude.

The staff were superb and the service perfect. This place is both trendy and atmospheric. Both my wife and I enjoyed our meals. The whole place seemed to be buzzing. But make sure that you book.
