Visited this restaurant twice this week. If you a travelling into Southport this restaurant in named as one of the top 10 in the area. You will not be disappointed the service and food are exceptional. Wednesday and Thursday before 7.30pm you can purchase a 2 course meal with a bottle of wine each. If you do not drink the wine you can take it away. Will definitely visit again and highly recommend to anyone who has not yet visited.

This was my first visit and unfortunately it will be the last
The staff are really friendly and helpful and the entertainment was good
However when it comes to the food first impression you would think it would be good as the choice is varied
Not the case I can say the starters were ok but the main meal was a complete let down cold chips tasteless stroganoff chips were replaced but still only warm my partner had ribs he really enjoyed them
However the friend we were with had steak it was tasteless and the baked potato was cold and sauce tasted like gravy to be fair they did not charge us for that meal

Went here recently for a family birthday. The menu is brilliant and caters for everyone but format is a little over facing . Our food was excellent quality and reasonably priced .
Service a bit mixed . The initial impression wasn’t great off a sullen waitress who tutted when we weren’t ready to order drinks the minute we sat down , but the other ladies who brought our food were delightful.
The decor is quirky .
The tea pots need to be smaller or filled less !
Overall , a good experience and with small improvements could be a great one .

Having seen the scores for this place we expected good things however, when we arrived the 1st thing we noticed were the chairs which looked like a knife fight had recently taken place. It was quite quiet while we were there, only two or three other tables were used the entire time we ate.

The food while not bad wasn't good, in particular Morocco lamb burger was pretty generic and had very little to be described as Moroccan, if anything it was bland. The rest of the food received similar feedback: ok but not good.

The service was good and attentive throughout our meal. I am honestly surprised at the overwhelmingly positive reviews this place has I can only assume it's due to review inflation. I won't be returning to this restaurant and I would not recommend it.

Very generous portions of good quality food. Very tasty. Almost too much to choose from. Took me ages to decide. Friendly staff.
