The manager, a girl of ???? 20 years approx., who when asked said that she was the full time branch manager, had no custom service skills, was rude, inflexible, and let me walk out without my take away lunch order today. The reason a problem arose was that when I went to the till to pay I was informed that... More

I was here on sat evening with a party of 9. Having pre ordered our food was prompt. Starter of goats cheese fritters was lovely. Main course of bang bang chicken also good. Service was fine , surroundings were small and intimate. BYO which was 1.50 per head so dined for £20. Good experience would visit again.

Haven eaten here on several occasions, for all meal types I have to say the food is very good. At lunch it can be very busy and you may have to... More

We absolutely love this place! They offer a fantastic menu ranging from ox tongue waffle with sriracha to Korean chicken wings, flat whites are delicious too! Talk about going here every week! Only downfall is we arrived at 3.30pm on Sunday and we're told kitchen was closed
