I went here with my friend tonight. We had the spicy chicken, piri piri prawns, crocodile burger and alpaca burger and it was all amazing! Absolutely loved the food and will definitely be coming here again soon!

Daria mixed us some lovely cocktails and was very helpful at explaining the ingredients and making good recommendations. The setting is in a lovely listed building with beautiful features. Staff are super friendly😊

Terrible service. Restaurant not busy and cold, diners were sat with coats on. Ordered two burgers, 50 minutes later despite chasing still no food. Ended up paying for drinks and walking out. Avoid at all costs.
