Having been here before I knew what to expect as I had a great fort experience in here with a party of 8 for a birthday. However, this time we went just as a couple and I have to say the male member of staff who was serving us had very little if any customer service skills atall. Didn't get... More

Went here for the first time on a sunday afternoon, food was superb with possibly the best burger my wife and i have ever tasted, staff couldn't do enough for us and we will be returning soon, a hidden gem.

We had bought groupon deal some time back and decided to book for a midweek meal, not really expecting much! Although it was a Wednesday night and the bar and restaurant were fairly... More

We were given a choice form the menu at no extra cost but stuck to our deal and were both delighted by the result. Mussels were spicy but not too spicy for us, steak meal was delicious & more than adequate. The steaks... More

we went here on a groupon deal at Halloween. Food was excellent - we all ordered the same : chilli prawns followed by steak with blue cheese sauce on the side with patatas bravas. Everything spot on except for the patatas bravas sauce - tasted a bit like the tomato sauce from the tinned spaghetti of my childhood. To be... More

We went there through a voucher we had bought online for mussels and steak. The food itself was lovely. However, here are my main gripes with the place.........I don't like dirty glasses and cutlery. I don't like choices tableware and I don't like staff rolling their eyes when you ask for replacements.
