An interesting place, wasn't at all as expected. Staff were friendly and prompt despite it being quite busy when we arrived. Decor was modern-esque but the ensemble didn't quite gel, almost like it had been a lucky dip out of a catalogue...

Food was nothing special considering the price but was reasonable. Generally quite pricey for what you get but had no complaints overall. Staff were accommodating with splitting of the bill which is always nice. Decent drink and food selection but if there are any veggies in your group you may struggle!

Popped in for a quick Saturday lunch! First impressions were it's a strange sort of place, very dark,not cosy at all.it's an old building so felt vacuous,I get the modern take but didn't work for me! If there had been more people it would probably have helped! The waitress was lovely and the drinks were good and served promptly!
The menu was small but that's fine,just feel they need to have a clear idea at what they are aiming for,the chicken wings were really tasty and nachos were ok! I guess we felt the owner couldn't quite decide what they wanted to do with it! Not sure if I'd go back but maybe!

Seven of us dropped by yesterday evening for a birthday celebration and can thoroughly recommend it. The food was served quickly by lovely staff and was delicious. Great coffee too (as something of a coffee-holic this is a real find).... will definately be returning very soon.

First time we have ever been and certainly wont be the last. Staff were attentive and friendly and the atmosphere was good, not as many customers as we thought there would be on a Friday night. We had the red hot buffalo wings to start and they were big, flavoursome and tender aswell as the potato skins which were tasty and well cooked.
For main course I opted for the rib eye steak, deep char marks and cooked to perfection, accompanied by the amazing hand cut chips that they do. The side salad was well seasoned with a lovely dressing. My wife had the courgette salad with feta, she thought it was light and delicious. We finished the evening with the chocolate brownie from the dessert list, we were defeated by it though as the portion sizes were very big. If I had one problem I would say it was the coffee, not great very watery. And the restaurant was quite dark, but all in all a good experience. Can't wait until they start making some additions to the menu! Give it a try :-)

Wouldn't have stopped here if friendly staff member hadn't been so persuasive but glad we did. Typical grill menu but great veggie options (if only a few). Staff very welcoming and helpful. Restaurant a bit lacking in atmosphere but it's early days as they've only been open a few weeks.
