Service was great as was some of the food.
The letdown was the taste of the fries and the halloumi - barely distinguishable from each other. I suspect the cooking oil wasn't fresh.
The bread for the bruschetta was twice as thick as it needed to be and too soft, which took away from the flavour of the topping.
Our wine choice was very tasty.

Unfortunately all of our main courses were awful. They were all over £20 so I’m glad they didn’t charge us for them! We were the only people in the restaurant so there wasn’t much of an atmosphere.

quiet for a Sat afternoon but not a surprise during Covid times. The service was great and food also. The background music was great, overall a lovely afternoon and would happily return

Had the roast dinner and it was absolutely 10/10 beautiful. It is now a Thursday and I am still thinking about that roast from Sunday. The sauce was everything! Staff were so lovely and polite. I will be back!

Really great atmosphere and beautiful setting and decor. The salt and chilli scampi was delicious and well presented but portion was very small. Mains selection was limited, probably due to Covid restrictions but we all had pizza and it was beautiful. The staff were so lovely and social restrictions were well in place and adhered to. We will definitely be back

Booked at very short notice on Friday evening. We arrived a bit early and were allowed to go ahead and proceed to our table without having to wait. The meal was delicious small plates to start and then the lamb. Service was really friendly and helpful. Lovely surprise with the bill too in comparison to another city centre restaurant where we ate a few weeks before. We will definitely be back! 5 stars !

From the minute we arrived it was a pleasant, the waitress was so lovely and made the worry of the pandemic a distant memory for the hour and a bit we were there! The wine was delightful and food was fantastic! We will definitely go back soon!

Food was delicious, we had the tapas and there was a good selection. Our waitress was attentive without being overbearing, she was able to recognise when we needed help. It was a really good atmosphere whilst also making you feel comfortable, with all the precautions they had in place working seamless and not getting in the way of having a good meal.

The atmosphere was good and the staff were very friendly, but the service was quite poor. We had to wait a very long time for all the drinks we ordered (we had to promote the waitress / waiter twice for each order).

Had a lovely lunch and a few gins.Staff very friendly and efficient. Duck breast and lamb cooked as requested.Unfortunately due to Covid the restaurant was very quiet.That did not affect our very enjoyable experience.It just reminded us we all need to get out more and support these really good restaurants

Service wasn't great but food and drinks were good. Staff were slow to take order although we were only 1 of 2 tables. Seemed no arsed, but despite poor service food was tasty and cocktails are worth the wait

Tapas were OK. The portions were not amazing & the pork was OK. The halloumi was the best of the 3.

The Chicken Chorizo burger was tasty & the sweet potato fries were good too.

The monkfish portion was very small for the price (albeit 50% off).
