    The Meredith goats cheese donuts were amazing. However the oysters were very small and pricey. Overall I can say the staff were friendly, however it is probably overpriced for what we got.

    Ambience and noise level only low due to covid restrictions meaning the place was almost empty, disheartening to see considering the exceptional service and lovely styling of the bar. Teddy and Abbey ( sorry if I got their names wrong ) were incredible, we had a lovely chat and the cocktails were amazing. Definitely would recommend and can't wait to see the place fill up when restrictions ease.

    Had a nice two hour stint Friday afternoon with a friend and the cocktails were amazing and the waitress was just as amazing. Her friendly and jovial nature was welcoming. I will be back and will definitely recommend this place to friends and family.

    Excellent service! Unfortunately our table wasn’t ready for us when we got there because of people not wanting to leave but they were so lovely about it and even gave us free shots for the inconvenience which was so nice! The servers there were just so accomodating.

    We only had one cocktail each and a prawn roll each but both were excellent. My whiskey sour was absolutely perfect and I’ve been drinking them for 25 years. Customer service element was very very good indeed. We would highly recommend to anyone.

    Their Wagyu Steak was the best steak I have to this day. The prices reflected the quality of the meals, with homemade breads that exceeded expectations.

    Casual cute lunch date. Menu was refined and well thought out. Shared 5 small dishes, goats cheese doughnuts were the standout. Look forward to another visit to try the other offerings. Service was spot on, friendly, attentive and helpful.

    For only their 2nd weekend open it was lovely! Excellent cocktails and the service was pretty good if not a bit over the top. The staff needs to figure out which tables they are looking after to stop the over the top contact! Overall a lovely night out!
