Wish we didn't order! Seems a good place for a drink, our mulled wines were nice. The food was dismal had several small plates, all were deep fried to hell and back. No flavour iv had better food from fuel stations!More

I agree with Ann - the place is very big on several floors. But it's also quite crowded. So I would suggest you booking in advance.
