Apart from the noise this restaurant was excellent. We were welcomed at reception and taken to our table across the very large floor space where just about every table was taken; yet even though the place was huge it was well designed and it felt comfortable. The serving staff were all very pleasant and helpful and the food was delicious. My only complaint was the background music which drowned out the conversation between us. I don't know if it was a one off or if this is a particular feature of the restaurant but it did spoil the relaxed atmosphere for us (maybe it is an age thing!)

Had a table booked for 12. From a set menu. I know most places are very good at set menus but when you have to send food back as it's cold it doesn't help. Nor does it help when you have to ask how long will our table be. Food was nothing to shout about. The place is a nice setup. More of a bar than a restaurant. Total bill was just over 600.00. For the price I expected more.

What can I say? I booked a table for 11 people for our Christmas party and the actual table I booked wasn't the one we were given. The food took way too long to arrive and the quality of the meal is just a notch up from what you would get in an aircraft. For e.g. the dumplings that came with my beef in ale were crusty on the outside - which means that they weren't fresh but re-heated. Truly terrible when you consider the price of the menu. We certainly won't be back.

Looking for somewhere for a coffee and asked member of staff if that was possible, Shown to table and food looked so good the "coffee" turned into shared pizza, dessert and cocktail!! Then followed by coffee!! All staff very helpful and the waitress sounded as though she had tasted the food when she made her recommendations. Very unusual space; looks a bit industrial but ladies you MUST visit the toilets.......... !! Well worth finding this relatively new venue

We invited 24 guests to help us celebrate my husbands 50th. Our table was in private dining, excellent decor, well organised and the service was spot on (thanks Faye!). Everybody enjoyed their meal and drinks, not one complaint was made. Overall a fab evening!! Highly recommended. Thanks!!
