I haven't eaten here but it's a nice place that's close to the station which makes it good as a first stop rendez-vous. It's informal and relaxed and the service was probably a little slow but they did deal with a fairly odd order even...More

Decently priced menu, with a few twists on your usual pub fare. The restaurant is notable for it’s low key cool and fun mix of paintings and cultural influences. Add friendly staff and a chilled vibe and you have a winner.
