“Pretty average”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

This bar/restaurant has a nice look with a cosy courtyard surrounded by ivy covered walls. Unfortunately the courtyard was spoilt by what felt like a constant stream of staff coming out to smoke and lounge around which was very unprofessional. Also the area is small and the smoke smell completely took over, the staff were unconcerned about blowing smoke towards us and we had a baby and small child with us so I was not impressed. The food was ok, some slightly odd combinations, portions were too big and the quality was average. I wouldn't go back there.

“Underwhelmed”
Reviewed June 16, 2012

Went for dinner on a Saturday evening. Despite only being one of 3 tables, service was weak with staff spending more time smoking in the garden than being attentive to the customers. Food was OK although not a single vegetarian option for main course. For a wine bar, wine list had to be asked for and is not exactly extensive. Would not rush back.
