Disclosure: to celebrate the new menu, we were invited to sample the sharers and small plates. There was no pressure to comment or review. As a vegetarian, there were some nice choices of small plates, although almost all are deep-fried. The only sharer suitable seemed to be the nachos, but oddly these were served almost naked here with dips -... More

Bar woman was moaning to another staff member about something to do with a third member of the team while pouring our drinks. She was obviously in the opinion that she had been hard to. Lunch was a steak ciabatta and a chicken wrap. The steak was cooked great and looked very good but was totally tasteless. Clearly long term... More

We have been to this venue now about 5 times. We liked the clean airy and pleasant layout of the restaurant. The food we ordered an all occasions was good and the staff with one exception friendly and efficient. However the downside is the loud screechy pop music we had to endure on all our lunchtime visits, it appears they... More

Two friends and I went for dinner and the restaurant was dead quiet (even with 50% off), after not being shown in we found a table ourselves and went to the bar for a drink where we got poor service from a rude barmaid and again poor service from a different barmaid when ordering our meals.
