Visited on a busy Saturday afternoon , luckily we had booked was really busy. Good variety of drinks, staff were friendly and attentive. We opted for snack menu and were very pleased with our choices. I would certainly revisit just for another Porn Star Martini

Hard sarnies and meagre portion. Only one staff member provided good service. A very nice young man.
