    We ordered the chef’s selection which was great value and a variety of food and flavours. The servings were generous and delicious. The braised beef was amazing! Service was a bit rushed and the food could have been served at a slower pace to make it a bit more enjoyable.Also, having no options for light beer is not great when you are driving. With so many fabulous low or no alcohol beers available these days, this is definitely something that needs to be added to the drinks menu. Overall I’d recommend Recess but it just needs a few tweaks to make it excellent.

    The best gluten free food you’ll ever have, along with the most amazing service and atmosphere. Can’t recommend this place highly enough!!!!!! We’ve been here several times, never disappointed. You’ve done it again guys. Thanks for a great night.

    Great bar vibe. Cocktails were fabulous and the meal was delicious. Not exactly the cheapest night out but worth it because it was all very yummy. A bit too noisy at times but that could be because I’m getting older lol!
