I want to start off by saying that the service here was excellent and our waitress couldn’t have been more attentive. Unfortunately that’s probably where our positive experience ends. We ordered the “trio of dips with dippy sticks” and were disappointed to find that the...More

Vibrant environment and smart service. Good menu. Only negative was that most dishes were much hotter (chilli hot) than expected. We like HOT but this was too much

It was lovely and quiet due to New Year’s Eve. Staff were lovely and food great. Plus they do NHS discount so super affordable for good quality food and wine.

I’ve always loved the Herb Garden and our pizza was decent but the place was an absolute mess. Loads of uncleared tables and dishes everywhere. All of the herbs had been taken out of the growing areas and it was like eating in a messy...More

I love this place! I love hearing the train over the head. I love the idea of hydroponics. I WANT TO BE LIED TO THAT HERBS ARE FROM THEIR HYDROPONIC ROTATORY TOO BRIGHT HERB GARDEN THERE! And the garden used to be there, but for...More
