Ate here on Saturday night ( 4 of us) Lovely tasty food, very friendly efficient staff ( our waiter, Jay was lovely) a nice atmosphere around us and the manager even came over to say and you, Bye and shake hands as we left.

Ate here last night with my wife, food was beautiful, the wine (Vidal) was beautiful, the building's beautiful, the service slapped a cherry right on top. Definitely will be back! Our servers were Harriet and Kieren (? Sorry if that's wrong, we were quite drunk!) so hopefully this gives them some praise!

The manager of the restaurant was very accommodating and friendly. We went for my mums birthday and he gave us 2 complimentary glasses of prosecco to kick off the night. The food and drinks were lovely. And we found that the meals were good value considering the quality was so high. The venue is stunning, it is an old church,... More

Nice family lunch in this converted church on Wolcot Street. Popular restaurant in the evening - it was fairly quiet for Saturday lunch. Nice Italian food - and good variety on menu - pizzas, pasta, fish, steak. Everyone enjoyed their meal.

Everything up until the main course seemed fine. The waitress was nice enough, and the venue and music was lovely... Then I popped to the bathroom, (which had no signs directing me to, which was pretty confusing and it too me a while to find). There was also urine all over the seats. On my way back, I was stared...

Food was excellent, lovely surroundings and excellent service. Only issue, main course came out just as we'd finished the starters, other than that highly recommended.

Lovely meal for 8 of us, pork cheeks were stunning. Everyone was happy with the food, drinks and service and a beautiful setting. Table was a bit restricting for 8 of us with a combo of chairs and a booth so we had a bit of a partition but other than that, can't grumble. Definitely recommended.

Hello Zoe M, Thank you for your positive feedback about your visit! Unfortunately on such busy nights the table by the door becomes our only table available for tables of 6-10, so i'm sorry that you felt quite restricted! Hopefully next time, with more notice, we can provide you with a larger table with more spacious seating. Regards, Harriet Assistant... More
