    A meal with friends - the perfect venue. We could talk easily yet privately. The staff were friendly and attentive and made us feel welcome. I had the beef cheeks and it was an exquisite meal. The online reservation model made it easy to get a table and parking is simple and free. Will definitely come back!

    Food was amazing, however, we were seated near toilets and there was a bad smell coming from it so that wasn't pleasant. May need to be cleaned more regularly.

    Made booking online. Asked if special occasion - yes birthday. Made no difference. Ordered 2 meals, waited three quarters of an hour for them & when they were finally brought to the table, one of the meals was not the meal ordered. They asked if we would mind waiting 10 minutes for them to cook the right one. Given that we’d waited so long already, we decided to swap the meals with each other and just make do with what we’d been served, so neither of us had what we wanted. No reparation or compensation offered.

    We all enjoyed our meal. The staff were friendly and efficient. The table was ice and spacious too. The kids had space to do colouring in their books. We commented on how the sound didn't seem to travel around inside the building. The meals were great, fall apart lamb shoulder, kids parmi was a hit and the drinks were great. 11yr old son tried the bao buns (3), loved them so much he ordered another serving!

    A busy night, being Valentine’s Day and a Monday, meaning many other venues in town were closed! Staff extremely busy, but did their best. Kitchen also struggling, with waits of an hour or more for some orders. We saw one couple leave who obviously didn’t appreciate the difficulties in hospo currently. We enjoyed our shared entree plate, and while the flavours in the pork belly dish were great, the pork was badly over cooked, dry and tough without crackling! Not up to the usual high standards here, but hey - one lesser dish should not break a good establishment. Hope they can pick up to where they used to be. Wines excellent as always.

    Bitterly disappointing experience. Booked table (7.30 pm, earliest available) for Valentine's Day. Plenty of time for pre-dinner drinks in the bar, however, the barman was clearly having a bad day as evidenced by his abrupt attitude to myself and again to my partner when we dared to approach the bar. The restaurant experience was no better. We ordered at 7.30 pm, waited for 75 minutes without one update or anybody even approaching us. We left, hungry and disappointed at the contemptuous attitude shown by the rude staff (one exception was the last person manning the cash register who at least acknowledged our disappointment). Thanks for ruining our Valentines Day experience BA, we won't be back.

    Asked for our order almost immediately and we hasn’t even had a chance to look at menu, once we decided it took a good 10-15 minutes so any service and we had to flag someone down to order. After we ordered the meals took 50 minutes to an hour to come out. Extremely understaffed, was quite warm inside would have been better outside with the breeze. Meals were average, I was looking forward to all of the items but the menu over sells and under delivers. Definitely wasn’t anything that would make you need or want to go back.

    Food was pretty good. Starting plate was nice. The chicken saltimbocca was a little small and dry but still tasty. The pork belly was lacking. Plenty of coleslaw but not enough pork. Overall good.
