    Regular diners in avenue - never disappointed- great usual staff, very good at their jobs, food delicious, wings and chicken burger, my other 1/2 had the sea bass, very good standard -but did find it very loud in the bar area - it was down to one table who were having drinks, but sure the restaurant cannot control that

    Lovely family dinner to celebrate my daughter's 10th birthday. Nice touch the staff singing and bringing her cake for her birthday- she was so chuffed! Food was delicious and great gluten free options for the two coeliacs in our group!

    It was close to being the best fish and chips I’ve ever had but the batter was too salty (for a smoked fish). The risotto was too salty as well. Otherwise great presentation and flavors. Bar space is very nice, though very hot! Would go back.

    Everything was good apart from waiting for 1.25 hrs for our mains to be served. Staff admitted our order had been forgotten until we enquired politely as to when mains would arrive. No major apology or good will gesture to acknowledge the mistake on their part. Have dined here many times and this never happened before.

    Good quality but old fashioned food: the vegetable soup had too much white pepper and the very tender braised beef was overpowered by heavy gravy. The wine was bland. Music was generic rock classics, to the extent that I was actually guessing what would play next. They need something a bit more quirky...
