    A really terrible experience, having to argue with an employee who claimed to be the manager that a meal came out with a key ingredient that was not listed on the menu, due to allergies I was unable to eat it. I found a lovely lady downstairs who was dressed professionally and she was the manager who took care of the situation and was very polite, removed the meal from the bill, however the night was ruined by this point and we were ready to leave. I will not be returning.

    The food was very tasteful and came out very quickly, however the service was poor and I felt liked I wasn't cared for as a customer.

    The ribs were awful and cold. The waitress who served us was an absolute delight, she needs to find herself a job in a restaurant which serves great food.

    Took the family for Christmas Eve dinner. Good food, service and casual ambiance. We were seated outside, overlooking the buzz of people along Southbank. Kids enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and menu variety - great for sharing!

    Didn’t honour the reservation and weren’t even apologetic. Blamed the online booking system. Offered to seat us 2 hours later (we had five kids with us). Don’t bother booking here.

    We had to remind the restaurant about our main about an hour after our starters were served. Even then we received our mains in 1 & 2 dishes. The first main and the last were served more than half an hour apart.

    Hostess very unhelpful. I requested a different table away from the hallway and I was not accommodated. Entire floor was empty( see pic )so my group could Be relocated. When I spoke with the person in charge I got the I don’t care attitude this is your table take or leave it. Very disappointed.

    There was a take away coffee section of the restaurant that was run by the same person who was meant to get us our table. We ended up waiting for 10 minute without service. The person who proclaimed the restraint was “his” asked us to stand next to a big group of people to wait longer, and he was very rude. I will never go back to this restaurant. No customer service, just rudeness.
