    Amazing cocktails, delicious food (especially the pastas!) and great value. A really lovely night out that's nicer than a pub but not at all stuffy. Have been many times and never disappointed 🙌

    Food was great, with really good vibe in the restaurant. Downside was drink selection, out of at least 6 beers on tap only 2 available, Kegs had ran out. No Mid strength beer which was disappointing. No toilets in the restaurant, had to go to the public toilets outside the restaurant in the nearby shopping complex.

    Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. We appreciate the disappointment you experienced with the lack of beers available on the night, unfortunately this was caused by a supply issue which is in the process of being rectified. Hopefully we will have the pleasure of welcoming you back to our venue soon. Kindest regards TheEllaBGPManagementTeam

    The food was of a very good standard, as was the service and several interesting choices of wine by the glass. The only disappointment was the music which was loud and not appropriate for a restaurant. Chilled music would have created a more subtle ambience. That said, we still enjoyed the evening despite the difficulty in conversing due to the loud music.

We aim to keep the music level at a good ambient level, especially around peak times to create a more upbeat atmosphere for our guests. Once again, thank you for your feedback and we hope to welcome you back to our venue in the near future. Kindest regards TheEllaBGPManagementTeam
