I loved everything about this place! The fact that it was on a little side street with lots of character and a great atmosphere with the music from another bar playing in the background - it made me feel like I was back in Melbourne, Australia! The food was delicious and the menu creative! You could tell the food was made from good quality ingredients! We also had the friendliest waitress, I think her name was hazel... she was super smiley and it felt like she would have gone out of her way to help us! Thanks for a great lunch - we can’t wait to go back!

Popped down here with my brother after the place we had planned to go for breakfast was shut and we were not disappointed. Great selection, great value.

Went here on a Saturday night with the other half after booking a table. I wouldn't say it was ridiculously busy but I'm glad I booked.

We both had burgers for mains as it's a good measuring stick for the quality of the food. They were both lovely burgers accompanied by a portion of chips that looked meagre to begin with but when poured onto the plate was a perfect amount. They tasted a tad like ready salted crisps which for a chip was really nice!

Before our mains, I had the starter of lasagne fries and the missus had buttermilk chicken strips. The strips were massive and beautifully coated and the lasagne fries were like nothing I've ever had before. I'd go back just for a portion of those!! The restaurant are clearly very proud of the food they serve and that comes across in the service.

Most importantly, after having a starter and main each, 4 drinks and leaving a tip the total bill came to just over £35!! That's my Saturday night meal sorted for the foreseeable!

I kinda don't want people to know about it so that it's not too busy for me next time.

On a side note... it's a BYO booze place which makes it even cheaper but it is cash only. I would like to have the option of a card payment but can understand why a small business wouldn't want that sort of hassle.
