Great quirky concept, fun design and relaxed vibe. They were happy to allow my pup in too, which is appreciated. Would have loved to come to this place a few years ago while I was studying - just enough conversational atmosphere, just enough party :)...More

I really like this place. The venue is an old house and every room is set up differently. The menu is reasonable and varied; it caters well to vegans as well. This restaurant is great for groups. However, it can get really packed on weekends,...More

Hi Mike, thanks for your feedback. I will check in with our chefs about the saltiness as there should have been no salt added to the salads.

Went for dinner last night - wouldn't rate the food as top-notch, but recommend going at least once to experience the vibe and feel of this once Victorian house. Decor is such a mix of really old, slightly out-of-date and somewhat funky! Staff were great...More
