Place was empty but we had to go and ask for the bill after 15 minutes. Looked like the staff were ignoring as 3 members of staff chatted at the till. Shame as otherwise was OK.

Been coming often here for nice cocktails they do. I may say not very satisfied when it's busy as you have to wait for order and mostly waitresses are busy always to ask for another drink,nonetheless worth the price for the cocktails which are great!
