Great food, fantastic cocktails. The outdoor area is really pretty. The heaters were struggling to reach our side of the area so it was fairly nippy!

Would recommend :)

If you are looking to meet in a safe environment, I can highly recommend the Terrace. It has retractable roof and outdoor heaters so it’s perfect no matter what the weather is like.
The staff are amazing, friendly, attentive and respectful. All covid measures in place but you still get to relax and enjoy. Food is delicious and no problem in adjusting dishes to suit any allergies. One on the top of my list for dining during covid.

Unfortunately the service and food was very poor. I was really looking forward to a lovely lunch and a cocktail and we were left waiting for nearly 45 minutes just to order a drink and the place was quiet. The whole experience was so bad I don’t think I will be back. In a time where you go out only on a rare occasion and with a time limit it was beyond a joke ! Sadly cannot recommend.

Beautiful setting. Our table was located in a quiet corner of the restaurant, which was lovely, considering we only booked late.
Menu was ok, but we think you should offer a wider range, but we also understand that these are challenging times and this may not be possible.
We will definitely be back.
Well done to all. Keep up the good work through these challenging times and keep the chin up.

Awful experience. Menu wasn't great so we ordered fish and chips. The food arrived after 5 minutes which would indicate it was just a reheat. The fish was so skinny and tasteless on a bed of warm peas. We ate as much as we could and promptly left.

First time to eat in this diner. Food was delicious, I had steak and chips. Steak was probably the best I have ever tasted, asked for medium and got exactly that. Service was spot on too.

Disaster !!! Waited 40 min for our drinks and nearly 2 hours for our main course ! Meanwhile my husband only received his when the rest of us were finished! Very bad selection on menu and not worth the money we paid. The air conditioning in the room was broken and there was a disgusting smell of sewerage from the bathroom ! Would not stay here again

We had dinner on the terrace. Terrace is really nice. We got a great table as it was away from other tables. Some tables were very close to each other, I doubt the 1 metre social distancing was respected.
Greta to see that the staff was wearing face coverings.
However, we did not like the way cutlery was handled. It was touched by the staff who did not wear gloves. In other restaurants, the cutlery had been wrapped individually. Much better!
