Decided to eat here for dinner after a couple of friends spoke so highly of it.
I managed to book a table for a Friday evening at rather short notice which was a plus.
Decor was very different, slightly quirky and was a good talking point and made for a more interesting and less conventional setup.
As we waited for our first course a few people got turned away as there were no tables, so it built up a positive perception.
There were 3 of us who had starters and mains only.
There is nothing to complain about the food, but it didn't for me live up to the hype.
My starter of Scallops and Black Pudding Risotto was lovely and it was followed (unconventionally I know) by a Cajun burger. It was nice, if a little too blackened for my personal taste. But I can only go as far as nice it certainly did't blow me away.
There was a mix up with one burger whereby they brought a different burger to the table than was requested, but promptly dealt with.
One of our party had a fish dish of the specials menu and was very pleased saying it was tasty and filling.
Service was ok, not exceptional. What I can presume was the owner strutting around with sunglasses on his head all evening. Not a biggie but not exactly professional, but perhaps fitted well with the relaxed atmosphere. Also odd that when the food was brought to the table the waitress made the comment that all the sauces were home made, which is positive but felt the comment was a little out of place. Maybe should have told us this as ordering the food.
When it came to paying the bill despite there being 3 of us they did allow me to use a popular discount card which meant the cheapest starter and main was free.
All in all the visit was acceptable. I would eat there again but I would not rave about it. I possibly went in with to high expectations based on what friends had said.
