A really interesting building, with some great artwork. It kind of feels like it’s underground as it’s deliberately low lit I guess to improve the ambiance but it’s south facing with some sun trap windows at the end so when we visited we basked in...More

I've eaten here many times and have always been impressed. Reasonably priced and with friendly, professional staff, this is a brilliant night out. Plenty of veggie options too and beautifully decorated in a quirky and individual style. Delicious!

Visited on a Sunday evening, had one of the downstairs cellar rooms to ourselves, drink and food service was good. Had a variety of starters and burgers, all good with excellent thick chips. The dessert from the daily specials menu was particularly good. We tried...More

The food and drink is always great. Today was made even better as it was Mother’s Day and I was accompanied by my 2 eldest children for an afternoon of eating drinking and shopping! We had the bread and olives to start with (plus expresso...More
