The menu is well judged and looks like its freshly cooked rather than off the back of a frozen food lorry as so many bar meals are. The service is very good and well paced. The staff are friendly and attentive and the whole experience represented great value for money

Four of us entered about 4.30pm and were greeted with a fabulous lounge area full of people enjoying themselves, a good start, plenty of atmosphere. We proceeded through to the restaurant / bar area, this place has style! and sat at a table, good music and again tons of atmosphere, perused the bar, excellent selection of different lagers, all at reasonable prices, superb selection of bottled beers and a very well stocked bar.

The food menu is typically bistro, which we like, and plentiful in choice both for the veggies and the meaters. Mixtures of pulled pork sandwiches, spaghetti and meatballs, 2 veggie sandwiches, fried cheeses, loads of chips, bread and oil, sweet potato chips, onion rings.

All the food was excellent, well cooked and came with loads of extras, thoroughly enjoyable. When we left it was starting to fill up properly, loads of extra staff starting and looked like it was going to be one hell of a party.

Well done to the staff and management, all places should be run like this.

Four of us ate here on a Sunday evening in November and all enjoyed the food and the live music. Ordered 8 different tapas style dishes and all were excellent, and good prices too.
will be back.

A busy Bistro, whether it a warm scone with coffee, a sandwich, panini or pasta, the chow mien is fabulous. The menu includes many different snacks and some more hearty food. A glass of wine , a lager or a beer. A selection of non alcoholic drinks, teas and coffees.
The atmosphere is very pleasant and the staff helpful. All together a pleasing experience except for the weird lighting which changes the colour of the food. Very strange.

Whilst i normally like the lounge and have visited it on many an occassion for food, my latest experience was terrible. It was relatively busy but I have seen it far busier. When we ordered nothing was said about a potential lengthy wait for food. After 45 minutes waiting we were brough some tortilla chips and told the wait would be an hour. Naively we thought the wait would be an hour from our original ordering time but no it was over an hour from then.

In total we waited 2 hours for our food from ordering!

When the food did arrive it was no where near the usual standard of the lounge and was actually far over cooked which considering they were in need of time saving surprises me.

No explanation or apology was given by anyone other than the tortillas to keep us there.
