Odd title for a review but it truly is a game of two halves, the bar service is attentive and a great place to sit on a bar stool and debate the menu, except it's a rush to get you to your table, which is fine because the restaurant upstairs is very pleasant. Service from here on gets patchy and slower, the food is actually very good and well priced however as the meal progresses the service gets less attentive and pudding orders are almost grudgingly taken, coffee! You've no chance they're too busy preparing tables for the next day. I won't stop going here, it's a handy eatery and we shall go on a good day sometime and the service will be seamless.
Just because I'm not raving about this place doesn't mean don't go, just don't go for a special event.
