“Empty - but full?”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012

Wet Wednesday, loads of empty tables, but couldn't take us. No explanation, not very accommodating - so we won't be back. Had your chance and blew it !

“Good night out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2012

Did not eat but had many drinks in the upstairs and downstairs bar. The bar has a great relaxed atmosphere and very busy which just adds to the atmosphere. The show live sports and downstairs have a dancefloor which is good fun.....a good place to drink with friends

“If you are going to eat use the restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

Have eaten here a couple of times in the restaurant and it was great. Unfortunately I ate here last week in the bar and the service was terrible. This is a real shame because the food was excellent but the poor service from the bar staff really let the establishment down. For during a quiet part of the day the music was extremely loud which also made it an uncomfortable visit.

“gorgeous food, great value and lovely atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

Great restaurant, not too flashy and over priced but the food was amazing
Partner had Seafood chower for a starter and he practically licked the bowl (obviously he didnt or I'd have clipped him one!)
We both had steak and guiness pie with champ and cabbage and bacon!! It was full of good quality meat and delicious
Polished it all off with a nice bottle of Rioja and a salty caramel chocolate creation!! Yum
