    Group of ten of us came for a late leisurely lunch on a Sunday. Awesome vibe, friendly service, great wines and good tap beer selection. I had the seafood spaghetti special, which was delicious. Others in the group commented on how much they enjoyed their burgers, parmas and steaks and our veggo mate was happy too. Can’t wait to go back

    The food was ok, overpriced and over-sauced for what we got really. Croquettes were nice. The best part about the beef cheek was the crunchy, perfectly steamed veggies that accompanied it. We actually thought the service was great, until 30 minutes into our booking we were told that our table was needed, when we had a booking for 1 hour and 45 minutes. Then when we got up to leave we were told they made a mistake. Too late, sorry but we shan’t be coming back.

    It is always great here, however, last night the service was quite poor. The service team seemed more interested in cleaning glasses than serving tables and it seemed to take a long time to get anyone to come and take our order (drinks or food). At one point one of our party was at the bar and the staff totally ignored him. In saying that when we did get served the staff were polite and attentive (maybe not enough staff!). The food was excellent as usual, however, it was noisy which is always a bit a of turn off.

    I was disappointed with my meal though the others in my party were happy. My requested medium steak was well done and very fatty and grisly I didn't eat most of it.

    I would recommend ringing to make any booking as my booking via OpenTable failed and there was no booking for us when we arrived. Luckily the staff were able to accommodate us and they were extremely helpful and apologetic about the error with the booking

    Not my first time here and every time we have a great meal! Service is amazing, I booked the wrong number of guests and they happily accommodated 2 extras. The seafood pasta was to die for! Bit noisy in the bar area but the dining area is great.

    Pork belly was lovely Service was friendly but the noise level was painful. We had a table of 4 & had to lean in to hear the conversation. We were seated next to an external door on a cold night & had to get up constantly to close it. Lighting could also improve as we needed to use our phone torches to read the menu
