“A great location”
Reviewed June 21, 2014

I have been to this bar few times now, to drink and have lunch. The decor is lovely, the staff very freindly, polite and helpful. The drinks are great and the lunch menu is very reasonably priced. Its a lovely place to sit and watch the world go by if you are fortunate enpugh to get one of the window seats. I would defi itely recommend it.

“Clean modern imaginative”
Reviewed June 3, 2014 via mobile

Practical but funky seating arrangement with loads of different seating choices in a medium sized space.
Staff are friendly. Discounted cocktails after 5 pm Sunday to Thursday only, but we'll worth it. I haven't ever eaten there so can't vouch for the food BUT I have 'observed' others and they seemed quite happy. Great decor... Has bit of a Scandi feel to it... In an English kind of way of course.... Have fun...!!!

“Family lunch”
Reviewed May 28, 2014 via mobile

You get what you pay for just glad I don't have to pay the staff. The staff are friendly and try their best but when we ordered lunch there where only 5 other tables not busy for a city centre pub at 2.30pm. Our order took 45 mins to come and with two young kids that's too long. The food when it came looked good tasted ok but that was it nothing to write home about we have been here many times since it reopened and have been more disappointed each time.

“Food was bad & service was even worse!”
Reviewed May 1, 2014 via mobile

Went with a friend for supper and drinks, were greeted with wine tasting but were told they had renovated to a wine bar, not a restaurant (looking back this almost seemed like an advance justification for how terrible the food was). We had to go to the bar whenever we wanted to order something. Drinks took ages to make. The food took a long time to be served (nachos and bruschetta doesn't take long to make!) - the quality was very poor and not worth the price paid. It tasted like it had been sat out all day / lunchtime left overs. We waited about 40 mins for the plates to be cleared. The 2 things we wanted weren't available but we weren't told that until we tried to order them (you should always be told what isn't available when you're given the menus). We shared a chocolate brownie which wasn't edible - dark, rich chocolate, over cooked but not warm, had been left standing too long, no sauce so very dry - awful! We got our bill and when paying on card were charged the wrong price (£10 more than the bill amount). We then got a full drink spilt all over us when the waitress knocked it over. No apology for the wrong amount being charged, it took a further 30 mins for someone to come over and say the bill was correct, because another drink had been ordered. We didn't have the receipt because it got soaked by the spilled drink and apparently they could no longer check this on the till. We were so ready to leave we didn't bother arguing the case. We were also told sternly that we had 5 minutes to drink up as they were closing. No music, no atmosphere, awful food, awful service. Won't be returning.
