    Brought out wrong food; waited an hour for it. Was cold and inedible. I said something and I got chips for free with no sorry. Paid $22 for chips in the end. Could have at least refunded the difference.

    Celebrated a birthday in The Garden outdoor area and was fantastic! The prices of cocktails can get a bit pricey, but were great. The food being mexican inspired was nice. We had a party of 6 including my elderly mother who managed to get on the bar stool and she really enjoyed herself. Overall we had a fantastic time with the outdoor ambience, upbeat music and great vibes! I will be back to try the bottomless brunch or a Sunday session.

    Near the car display would be a great place to sit but the noise on a Thursday would put me off

    We've dined in this establishment multiple times in the past, but never had as disappointing an experience as we did this time round. Counter and bar staff were extremely unfriendly and rather rude. In saying that though, management and security were fabulous. Very approachable, welcoming, warm and professional. Food and beverages were great, as always, but this negative experience with staff was very disheartening. The venue was not at all close to capacity or busy for us to be able to put it down to staff being run off of their feet.

    We have been to the Bottomless Cocktail Session before and I feel the cocktails were a much better selection on our previous visit.. The Cocktails were all pretty sweet and I noticed that since our last visit where most of the cocktails on offer had two spirits in them this time only one did.. Same price though so don’t think that benefits the customer.. The Band was a great addition though..
