Came here for food before going to the theatre. The atmosphere is great, although as it was around christmas time it was especially busy so quite loud but that was expected. The food was really nice, I especially loved the starters. I would definitely come here again, but more for a special occasion as it is quite pricey

Service a little slow, with one assigned waiter to the table who could come by for drinks orders. Good choice for drinks menu, food is just average. Nice atmosphere

Had some really tasty cocktails here. The raspberry amaretto sours is very impressive! Only thing is that they are quite expensive and no deals midweek which most places offer.

Hi TBrading,
Thank you for this 4* review. Unfortunately, the prices are not something we control in store! We do however, have 241 gins in January, a free bottle of wine when you sign up to our newsletter which also leads to a free bottle of fizz on your birthday and the occasional bottomless brunch. Hope this information helps! We would love to see you again

We arrived a little before booked time but were showed to our lovely table very atmospheric decoration. Jake our waiter arrived to take our order very pleasant and professional. The cocktails arrived they were delicious as was the food. The service was attentive but not intrusive. Great cappuccino completed the meal. Cost very reasonable can’t wait for a return visit. Thank you Jake.
