I have been a regular here since it opened and it's going downhill fast, which the ratings on here confirm. It's such a pity as it could be so easily fixed.

My two daughters and I popped in for lunch today. I wasn't that keen as previous visits have just been ok, but my 16 year old persuaded me! She now wishes she hadn't! We were seated with menus by a blond waitress who was less than friendly and then we waited 15 minutes before another waitress came over to take... More

Visited for dinner in the evening. We found the service was friendly but quite slow and a bit disorganised. The food was enjoyable. I took my 3 year old daughter to the toilet and was disappointed to find it was quite dirty, no excuse when the place had just opened a few minutes earlier.

We visited as a group of friends for part of mine and my sister's 21st birthday celebration. The atmosphere in the restaurant and the Sphere Bar next door is nice and lively which we appreciated. The cocktails in happy hour are about 4/5 pounds which we enjoyed! The food was okay, carbonara was quite bland though and those who ordered... More

Food and service was fine. The staff were pleasant. The toilets are in need of a face lift, decent toilet seats and a good clean. You could smell the toilets in the restaurant. Please sort it out.

Even in December, the early bird deal was available on a wide selection from the extensive menu. My pizza was one of the best I have ever had (I seldom eat pizza as there's usually too much sauce or cheese). The base was thin, the topping not soggy and the flavour, even of the base, couldn't be faulted. And this... More

took my daughter for a birthday meal with my son and his girlfriend, the place itself was lovely, very clean and cosy, the food was lovely, hot and tasty with lots of choice, the service was very slow, as it was early evening and quite quiet I didn't expect to be kept waiting so long between courses, although the staff...

On the occasions when I've eaten here, it has been with groups of friends but unfortunately the quality of service has generally been poor, slow and sometimes staff have been rude. It's a shame, because the menu is so full and the food amazing!

Lovely setting and friendly staff however the food was awful. Very bland and watery. Also we didn't get all the things which are stated on the menu? Wouldn't go again.
