Basic food, not worth the expensive prices. Central location. Food isn't amazing. Go to Abby bar across the road instead

The food, cocktails and decor are great but the service is terrible. The past 3 times I've visited, the staff were unfriendly and didnt seem to care. They don't come around to see if you need anything and we had to ask for our plates...to be cleared on two occasions. Really disappointing and lets the place down.More

I called at 4.30pm to order food that I would collect. I was told by a member of staff to call back at 5.00pm as staff were on their breaks. I understood this and I called the restaurant back at 5.30pm. I was then told...by a member of staff that they were no longer doing take out today as they were full and extremely busy due to Christmas parties. I happened to have walked into town waiting to order so I decided to walk past the restaurant on my way back home to find 1 table with 2 customers in total and a completely empty restaurant otherwise with approx 6 staff members visible. I happened to enjoy this restaurant and had recommened it to several people, really disappointed with how I was treated here.More

I really don't like leaving bad reviews, I know with restrictions in place it can be difficult to run a business and staff are hard to get, but this was one of the worst experiences I've had since going out in the past few weeks....The doorman set the tone, extremely rude, I understand premises need to comply with regulations but his attitude was way off. We left after one drink, terrible atmosphere in the place felt like we were committing a crime by moving to go to the bathroom. Decor very nice that's the only positive I can say about it.More

I visited this place with my wife on a quick visit to the town and I have to say that it was the perfect setting for a romantic meal for us, I had the steak and my wife had the pepper chicken, my steak was...cooked to a perfect medium rare, jucy and full of flavour, my wife had the sauce on the side since she dosnt usually like sauces of any kind but ended up pouring it allover the chicken and divoured the whole lot and I mean the lot for a small picky eater, all n all 10/10 for food quality and not to forget the service was excellent and faultless, the staff really friendly and welcoming and made us feel special especially since the place was packed on a Saturday night, we will definitely be back the next time we're in town.More

Menu was not what we had seen online. Ordered steak for 4 people and was told 15 mins later, they had run out. Asked for water many times. We were not given the specials menu and had to ask for it because we had seen...other people eating food that was not on the menu that was given to us. There was only 3 Dessert options and they were not great. Toilet facilities were not clean at all. Had to wait for staff to sort out bill for over 15 minutes. No apologies at all.More

On arrival menu was not as shown on Facebook page, so my partner and I were unable to get combo platter. Items on the new menu were also unavailable. Ordered butterfly chicken which was so salty I sent it back. First time I have done...this in 60 years, it was inedible. Only choice of 3 deserts none of which I liked. Plus side service was prompt and polite.More
